“We played our last shows with Fred in 1986, though at the time I never expected them to be our last shows – npone of us did. None of us could foresee that he was going to get ill and die so soon.” – Roger Taylor

Only Freddie knew. He had played his last show in front of about 200,000 fans. It was the perfect way to bring the curtain down on Queen’s reign as one of the best live acts ever!
