Queen live at the Super Bowl, Sun City, Bophuthatswana [07.10.1984]
Freddie lost his voice - some sources say it was after Under Pressure (third song!) while others say it was after ~30 minutes. The concert had to be cancelled and the following one (October 9) as well. According to our sources and newspaper articles the October 10 gig DID take place while the October 12 gig was most likely cancelled (yes, it doesn't make much sense but that's what the articles say).

I was there and was devastated at the cancellation. After Somebody To Love (not Under Pressure), Freddie got up from the piano and left the stage. The auditorium went into darkness and after a short while the crowd started sounding the introduction to "We Will Rock You" with their hands and feet (stomp stomp clap etc.). This went on for a while before Hazel Feldman, concert organiser, came out and announced that the concert had been cancelled. (The ticket stub scan on the page is mine).
