It's a mystery if Queen played both I'm A Man and Mannish Boy during this tour or not. These two songs are similar to each other and while it seems very likely they played I'm A Man as the first encore, rumours say the band also played Mannish Boy in Glasgow (the second night).

The last two nights of the tour were very special. Queen used an expensive lighting rig called "Crown" for the very first time. Both shows were also officially recorded on video and the first show was also released on many bootlegs in almost excellent quality. Both gigs included a superb rock'n'roll medley (this medley is also the only bootleg recording from the second night).

Queen did NOT play Mull Of Kintyre in Liverpool 1977, despite what Greg Brooks' book says! They did however play it in Liverpool on 7.12.1979 :-)

The British leg of the tour was known as the Jubilee Tour – the reason being that it coincided with the Queen's Silver Jubilee.
