A one-off gig including many unique appearances by instruments. This section only covers the Queen set (Brian, John, Roger, accompanyists and guest performers). Brian played digital piano on Too Much Love Will Kill You and digital synthesiser on the first half of Who Wants to Live Forever. That'd be the last time (until 2012, that is) he'd play keyboards on stage.
