Queen Live !! November 26, 1979, The band performed at Apollo Theatre in Manchester, England. “Crazy” Tour

This is the first of two nights in Manchester. Because of technical issues with their lighting rig, the show began nearly two hours late.

The band opened with Let Me Entertain You and Tie Your Mother Down on the first night, as they had done at the previous few shows. They switched to the fast We Will Rock You for the second night to shuffle the deck a bit. On this tour, consecutive nights at a venue would never have the same setlist.

An audience recording of this show exists.

It’s a slight coincidence that Queen played in Manchester on November 26th in three different years – 1973, 1975, and 1979.
