1 May 1979, Queen performed the second evening @ Fukuoka-shi Kyuden Kinen Taiikukan in Fukuoka, Japan 🇯🇵 “Live Killers Tour”
For the second night in Fukuoka, ‘If You Can’t Beat Them’ is a bit later in the setlist than usual, in place of ‘Don’t Stop Me Now.’
After ‘You’re My Best Friend,’ Freddie reads out a note given to him by an audience member: “To our dearest Queen, we love you forever. With love, from Matsuri Senka.” The show then continues with his introduction to ‘Now I’m Here..’ “We’d like to do a song right now. We’d like everyone to sing as much as possible. This is a song from the Sheer Heart Attack album. It goes like this.”
He teases the audience with a bit of ‘Mustapha’ after ‘It’s Late.’ He eventually sings the a cappella intro before starting ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ just this once on the Japanese tour.
