23 November 1973, Queen performed @ The Apollo Theatre, Glasgow, Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 “Queen I Tour”
Supporting Mott The Hoople

This is the band’s first show in Scotland. The Apollo in Glasgow would be the site of many triumphant Queen performances in the 70s.

Instead of ‘Bama Lama Bama Loo’ they play a hyped up version of ‘I’m A Man,’ a blues cover they’d do a few more times in 1977.

John Deacon later stated this to be one of the band’s favourite shows of the tour.

A fan recalls: “Queen had just released their first album, the single ‘Keep Yourself Alive’ was out, and there was already a great buzz about this new band. This was one of the few times where everyone wanted to see the support act, and the hall was full for Queen’s performance. They were excellent, much better than many of the bands who would support major tours, and gave Mott a hard act to follow.”
