27 November 1980, Queen performed @ Groenoordhallen, Leiden, Netherlands 🇳🇱

“The Game Tour”

Queen’s gigs in The Netherlands would now be played at the Groenoordhallen in Leiden. Bands often made this transition when engineers determined that their lighting rigs grew beyond what the Ahoy in Rotterdam could handle.

Brian, after ‘Now I’m Here’: “Good evening, folks of Holland. You know you sing.. so beautifully. You know, you sang on our live album. Did you know that? Good, good. We’d like you to do a special bit of singing for us. Will you do that?” The audience knows exactly what’s coming next. “This is called ‘Love Of My Life’.” The audience sing every word to perfection, to which Mercury calls “the best singing I’ve heard in ages.”

At the end of the show, Freddie says, “You’ve been a truly fabulous audience tonight!” That’s definitely not something he said every night. It must have been a fantastic atmosphere, as the audience sang along with nearly every song.

Yes I,m Back .I did a Backup and thats help .The only thing is the Gallery .all pictures are lost .But here a pst some from.the news of the word tour.

1 December 1977, Queen performed at the legendary Madison Square Garden, New York, New York🗽🏆⚾️🇺🇸 ‘News of The World’ Tour

When Freddie came out for the first encore of ‘We Will Rock You’ and ‘We Are The Champions’ he donned a jacket and hat with the New York Yankees logos, much to the wild applause of the audience. The Yankees had just won the World Series in October and adopted ‘We Are The Champions’ as their team song!

Freddie’s gesture was all too appropriate and he just loved how the team adopted Queen’s highly successful anthemic song.

16 December 1978, Queen performed @ Oakland Coliseum Arena, Oakland, California 🇺🇸 “Jazz” Tour

The band are simply on fire at this show like they were in Vancouver, and the outrageously enthusiastic audience creates a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. Freddie sounds strong tonight, and the mild California air just may have something to do with it.

Brian speaks after ‘Let Me Entertain You’: “We’re going to do our best to entertain you in Oakland tonight. We’d like to sing you a song from some time ago. This is a Mercury song called ‘Somebody To Love’.”

With his tongue firmly placed in cheek, before the medley Freddie says: “What a quiet, tasteful audience we have here tonight.” He eventually continues: “We’ve dedicated this next song three years ago to a useless piece of garbage that use used to call our manager. I mean, he was a real motherfu****. He really was.” The audience’s excitement is turned up a notch. “We soon got rid of him, and just to make sure he didn’t forget us we wrote a song. This is called ‘Death On Two Legs’.”

We’d like to do it now. It’s called ‘Love Of My Life.’” After the song, Brian says, “We appreciate you listening to those things, as well as making noise in the other ones. We really appreciate that. And we appreciate you filling up this beautiful arena. Thank you very much for this welcome. Alright, a little singalong and stuff. If you want to stamp around, it would be very nice. This is ’39.”

Freddie is still feeling silly after ‘It’s Late’: “OK, we’re sure getting warmed up right now. On with the show. This next tune features Roger, Brian and… which one? John, that’s the one. John, Roger and Brian are gonna do their stuff tonight. This is a song called Brighton Rock.”

The first three pictures were taken by Peter Stupar and the rest were snapped by Charlie DeMore from the fifth row!

16 December 1977, Queen performed @ San Diego Sports Arena, San Diego, California 🇺🇸

“News of The World” Tour

The review by Robert Hilburn, was as follows:

SAN DIEGO – The rock concert scene may have started sluggishly in ’77, but it’s ending with a stir. There was Aerosmith’s snarl last month, Rod Stewart’s rejoice last week and now: Queen.

Already hailed as the best of the mid-’70s British arrivals, Queen is back with its most spectacularly staged and finely honed show yet. Coupled with its stylish new “News of the World” album, the tour should push the classy foursome even further into forefront of contemporary rock bands…

Freddie Mercury, the band’s flashy lead singer and occasional pianist, sang and moved with more confidence and dynamics than ever. Wearing a black and white Harlequin outfit open to the waist, Mercury pranced around the stage in a way that gave the band’s already dramatic numbers even added lure and punch.

When he sings potent, upbeat tunes like “Liar,” there are few in rock who can match Mercury’s vocal bit. But he’s equally satisfying on softer, more tender numbers.
