What a night that was. I was in the stalls, left hand side about 10 rows back.
My nan queued up for hours to get me tickets when they went on sale. I was still in school.
The queue went right round the block but my nan got there early.
We were in the circle for the second night. My auntie Jean got those.
I didn't realize at the time how lucky I was.
Thanks for writing your experience. Very appreciated.
Feel proud of enjoying the band, and if you have anything from that concert (pic, recording, t-shirt, film, more memories, etc.), feel free to share it!
I had a set of pics taken at the second night. probably 15-20 in al
When I left for Oz I left them with a friend l who still lived in Liverpool at the time. I've since lost touch with him. So if anyone comes across a Brian May obsessed scouser called Ian ask if he still has my queen photos :)
I didn't take any pics on either night.
I still have my ticket stubs, the programme and a blue crazy tour sweatshirt that I will never fit into again, but apart from memories and the stubs I have nothing particular about those gigs.
I remember that after (I think the) 2nd night, we saw John leave in the back of a Mercedes and followed him, but he went through a red light and shook us off.
I was told later that after the first night both Freddie and Roger went to a club that was owned by a family friend.
They didn't pay for their meal or drinks as it was 'on the house'. The owner didn't know who they were at first but when told he went out of his way to accommodate them.
I'll repost when I remember the name of the club. I must be going senile because it should trip off the tongue.
I know Erics was owned by Ken Testi a friend of.the band but that weekend Wah Heat and Joy division were playing they're .not bands I would associate with Queen going to see.i think the club you might be thinking of is Annabelles.
