15 May 1985, Queen performed their final evening in Japan @ the Osaka-jo Hall 🇯🇵 This is the last concert of the ‘Works Tour’

The band ensure this performance is a special one for their Japanese fans. It would turn out to be the final concert Queen would ever play in Japan with Freddie. A place where the band first found much critical and commercial success.

Before ‘Killer Queen,’ Freddie leads the band into the one-two punch of ‘The March Of The Black Queen’ and ‘My Fairy King’ as they had done last year in Sun City. This is the last time both songs would be referenced on stage.

Freddie’s voice isn’t quite as good as it was a week ago, although he does get a bit stronger as the show progresses. Despite not being able to hit the highest notes, his delivery of It’s ‘A Hard Life’ is perhaps the most emotional it would ever be – which may have been a reflection of his personal life at the time. This would be the last performance of the song.

Brian gives a heartfelt speech before ‘Love Of My Life’: “This is kind of a sad night in a way because it’s not only the last night of the Japanese tour; it’s the last night of the world tour, so this stuff will never be seen again. I’d just like to take this opportunity of saying that it’s not just us four guys that go around the world. It’s a complete team, and it’s the best team in the world. I’d like to say thank you very much to the Queen crew and everybody who’s worked with us. And to you.”
