26 September 1981, Queen Performed their second of three consecutive evenings in the Capital of Venezuela 🇻🇪

The Arrival of Queen in Caracas:

In August 1981 I went on vacation to Portugal and returned on September 24th. That same day I received a call from my loving Carlos Supaga, an Argentine doctor who was living in Caracas at the time and with whom we had a nice group of friends with the same interests. I had just gotten off the plane and I confess I was a bit stunned because the holidays had been intense.

Carlos told me that he had a surprise for me and that he would pick me up at my house. I struggled between being tired from the trip and going out on the road right away, but at that moment I was very curious and the surprise caught my attention. We went to visit another friend who worked in Venevision and from there we went straight to the Caracas Hilton Hotel.

My friends didn’t tell me anything and all of a sudden I see that some bodyguards are checking the access to the elevators and that when my friend identified himself, they let us get on the executive floors where there were a lot more guards and a hectic activity of the staff, most of them foreigners. And we went into one of the suites and a few minutes later I see that group of “skinny and chubby” without even realizing who I was in front of.

Then, Freddie Mercury came out of one of the rooms, planted a kiss on each of us and there I realized that that was “the surprise”. (Well, really, I must confess that years after all this, it was that I realized I was with one of the most important musical groups in the world and of the century). Those were difficult days to tell. I learned a lot about this type of rich and famous (their tastes, hobbies, etc.).

They were very friendly and “playful” guys, Freddie was undoubtedly the most charismatic and charming, the others were very English and sour, but with us in the beginning this was chemistry and we did not separate until they left Caracas. My heart is my heart. I remember that even if we spent many hours in the suites (each had their own but also others where we all gathered) sometimes we would go down to the VIP restaurant of the hotel and there a whole body of security was formed because the lobby was invaded by fans going crazy to see them.

We ate surrounded by guards in civilian clothes and they spared no expense or taste. “But undoubtedly, the most exciting moments were the visits to the Polyhedron of Caracas for mass concerts. An army of people worked to make sure everything was ready. By the time we arrived, they didn’t let us pass with the audience, we were always with them in the dressing rooms and we saw the shows from their own platform ′ ′ behind the scenes ′ ′ and then back to the hotel to celebrate the successful presentations.

The former president, Rómulo Betancourt died and the two final shows were suspended and Queen left, leaving me in a trace that I will always remember … ” 💛
