27 January 1976, Queen kick off their US leg of ‘A Night At The Opera’ Tour @ The Palace Theater, Waterbury, Connecticut

The band spent a week in New York rehearsing for their current tour. This show includes the first performance of ‘Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon.’

In a 1977 UK newspaper interview, Brian May recalled how this was the first tour where the venues were selling out everywhere. He then spoke about the differences between British and American audiences: “Here the fans are more reserved until they have reached a point where they can explode. In the States they are ready to explode at the beginning. They will give you anything you want – once you gain their favour.”
