July 8th, 1980 Queen Story!
Inglewood, CA, USA, The Forum
‘The Game Tour’
First of four nights at the LA Forum

Michael Jackson attended one of these shows

🔸”I’d been wanting to do a track like ‘Another One Bites The Dust’ for a while, but originally all I had was the line and the bass riff. Gradually, I filled it in and the band added ideas. I could hear it as a song for dancing but had no idea it would become as big as it did. The song got picked up off our album and some of the black radio stations in the US started playing it, which we’ve never had before. Michael Jackson actually suggested we release it as a single. He was a fan of ours and used to come to our shows”
