So, what did Freddie do with his gold/platinum discs?

“They were mostly used as wall paper. Freddie was rightly proud of his achievements and very often some of his awards would find their way onto walls in his various residences. I know there are some photos of the wall in the sitting room in Stafford Terrace showing some of his discs. I helped put up some of them in the apartment in New York and was also there when Freddie covered the wall outside his bedroom in Garden Lodge. That one was difficult as more time was spent measuring everything accurately as Freddie wanted no blue wallpaper showing between them, I also have a gold disc from Finland for ‘The Miracle’ on my wall as Freddie said it certainly wasn’t his as it was awarded to Freddy Mercury, so he gave it to me.”

18 April 1976, Queen performed their second show @ Hordern Pavilion in Sydney, Australia A Night At The Opera Tour”

Here’s a fan story:

I purchased tickets for my friend and I to see Queen in Sydney in April 1976. The tickets were actually entitled ‘Queen invites you to a night at the opera’, which was the title of their album at that time, containing, of course, Bohemian Rhapsody. Arriving at the Hordern Pavilion, I saw that many people had dressed in tuxedos, bow ties, etc, which added some colour to the night.

After the supporting band had finished its set, the stage, and the entire arena, was plunged into darkness. Then, a single strobe light began flickering. The ‘operatic’ section of Bohemian Rhapsody began playing, and the band members began moving on to the stage, and collecting their instruments. It was like watching a series of photographs being taken, and you only had fleeting images of them as they took up their positions on the stage. The song reached ‘for me, for me, for meeeeee’, and Queen launched into the rocking final section of the song. As they did, every light in the house burst on, and half a dozen flashpots positioned across the stage went off, creating this multi-coloured smoke haze as Freddie caressed the microphone stand, belting out those words ‘so you think you could stone me and spit in my eye…’ It was a total assault on your senses, the light, the colour, the sound was almost hypnotising.

I sat there for two hours, absolutely enthralled by the show. There were drum solos, guitar solos, even a bass solo. One minute, the stage would be relatively quiet, the next it would erupt in colour and huge guitar riffs. I heard many Queen songs I’d never heard before. Like most people, I’d only heard Bohemian Rhapsody before that night. I was amazed by The Prophet’s Song, hearing the sounds repeating out of one side of the stadium, then the other, then both, and Freddie’s voice reaching a crescendo of overlaying sounds, as if there were thirty Freddies up on stage.

I’ve been to other concerts, but nothing comes close to what I experienced that night.

12 April 1974 – Queen flew to the US to start the 2nd leg of their Queen II Tour. This was the bands first tour in North America. After the success of the ’73 UK tour, Mott The Hoople asked Queen to open for them on this tour as well. The US tour ran from 16 April 1974 – 11 May 1974, the tour ended early, Brian May became ill….

Just like every rock and roll band, Queen had to prove their worth as concert openers before graduating to headliner status. And that’s precisely what Freddie Mercury, Brian May, John Deacon and Roger Taylor were doing on the night of April 16, 1974, when they made their U.S. concert debut in support of Mott the Hoople.

Queen’s debut album had performed modestly and their sophomore, titled Queen II, had only been delivered to American record stores just three days earlier – about one month after its U.K. release. So, they were still, by and large, unknowns in the new world.

That meant Queen was effectively starting from scratch as they stormed the stage at Denver’s Regis College, a conservative Jesuit institution, in an effort to change this state of affairs — one show, and even one fan, at a time.

Luckily, Queen enjoyed close friendships with the men of Mott (the two bands having already toured extensively together back home), and so the latter did not mind that their upstart openers already pranced and posed upon the stage like well-established superstars. In fact, Mercury and May cut quite striking visions in the lavish silk and satin costumes that were custom-designed in all black for Freddie and all white for May (in reference to Queen II’s “black” and “white” vinyl sides) just prior to the tour by band friend Zandra Rhodes.

Queen’s set, likewise relied heavily on their latest album, at first, powering up with “Procession,” “Father to Son,” “Ogre Battle” and “White Queen (As it Began),” before segueing into select first-album highlights like “Great King Rat,” “Doing Alright,” “Son and Daughter” and “Keep Yourself Alive” (plus the never officially released “Hangman”), before concluding with “Seven Seas of Rhye” and finally, the explosive “Liar.”

Meanwhile, the audience was initially fairly stunned into wide-eyed silence by Queen’s arena-sized display of heavy-rock opulence, according to eyewitness reports. But they were clearly won over by set’s end, because they shouted the band back on stage for not one, but two encores, which Queen devoted to vintage rock covers (“Jailhouse Rock,” “Shake, Rattle & Roll”) and, oddly, cabaret stomps through Connie Francis’ “Stupid Cupid” and Shirley Bassey’s “Big Spender,” before demolishing the stage with the frantic onslaught of “Modern Times Rock ’n’ Roll.”

Obviously, headliners Mott the Hoople had their work cut out for them that night, and throughout the ensuing, month-long tour. But sadly, everything ended prematurely for the members of Queen in May of 1974, when Brian May was taken ill with hepatitis and ordered to recuperate at once.

Back home to England they went, undoubtedly disappointed that their American assault had been suspended for the moment – but also confident that that country’s first impression of their band had been both positive and promising. Many triumphs were waiting in the next few years.
