There were slight differences between the UK, US and Japanese tour. The Japanese shows were a bit longer (Queen even played Hangman and See What A Fool I've Been a couple of times), perhaps it's due to the warm welcome they received from the Japanese fans.

Some sources say the concert in Lund (Sweden) was cancelled too. There has been a research by several guys living in Scandinavia and it seems that although the famous traffic accident happened BEFORE the Lund concert (a newspaper article states it was approx. 120 kilometers south of Stockholm in the night between 26th and 27th), in the end the Lund concert WAS held (it was probably too late to cancel the show) and only the gigs in Denmark and Norway had to be cancelled.

Some North American gigs in February and March were cancelled too. For example the show on March 14th 1975 in St. Petersburg, FL at Sunshine Speedway never took place. The reason for the cancellation of this show wasn't due to any band members illness. The facility wasn't large enough or safely able to handle Queen in concert. The promoters and band management decided to cancel because the seating was deemed to be unsafe for the number of people expected to attend. The stage was built in the infield and the small wooden bleachers around the track were just too old to rely on for a rock n roll show. Also the Vancouver gig scheduled for April 4, 1975 was cancelled because Freddie had a sore throat.

As far as we know, there's no evidence that God Save The Queen was already played during the UK tour... probably it was just sung by the audience from time to time and Queen decided to record it as outro for the US tour.
