Queen released the second album of the band in 1974, named Queen II, and scheduled their ‘Queen II Tour’ and ‘Sheer Heart Attack Tour’ right after the album was released. In the same year, Freddie Mercury asked Zandra Rhodes if he can create stage clothing for the Queen’s upcoming tours.

Afterward, Zandra created clothes for the band, and this tunic in the picture is one of the special stage costumes that she made for Freddie.

The photos were taken exclusively for The Daily Telegraph at Trident Studios – June 7, 1974
