9 October 1981, Queen perform @ Estadio Universitario, Monterrey, Mexico 🇲🇽 “Gluttons For Punishment” Tour

This is Queen’s first concert in Mexico. Nine concerts were planned, but only three actually took place.

All went well with fans, and the Mexicans gave Queen an enthusiastic welcome – they had never seen anything quite like it before, as major rock bands just didn’t play in Mexico.

Fans who attended the Monterrey show have said it went on without incident. However, things behind the scenes were not going so smoothly. The show was badly organized, and the band were not treated particularly well. A structure outside the stadium collapsed following the first concert, with no fatalities but a number of injuries.

Things went badly enough that the band cancelled the next night’s show in Monterrey on such little notice.
