Spring Tour 1978 - Brussels, April 16th:
On their first night in Brussels the following incident happend...
Instead of the crown, their then used lighting rig, rising at the beginning of the show as usual it started to go up and then tilted to one side... Brians side of the stage to be precise.
The crown was raised on a four switch system with all four switches to be started or thrown in sequence... but somehow the switches were out of sequence and only one side went up and dragged the other side down!
The show had to be restarted and the crown was eventually raised before the band began their performance...
November 14, 1978. Providence Civic Center. Freddie berates the lighting director from the stage because the lighting is not up to par. "These lights suck!" he says. Sad thing is is that the lighting director is my cousin Joe. I saw this happen myself. Freddie then does this a few nights later in Long Island New York. From what my cousin told me afterwards, Queens' management (probably Stickells) is approached by one of TFA Electrosounds biggies and tells them to stop Freddie from badmouthing or they'll pull the crew from the tour. Freddie is actually heard on this bootleg saying "let's have some fucking lights!" Then he says "he's gonna be murdered tomorrow." The problem according to reports and from my cousin was that it was early in the tour and there were some technical problems within the rig. But it soon got fixed and the tour went on fairly smoothly.
After another show freddie has an argument with Brian and squirts hairspray in his eye
Nah...That was Roger & Brian (1984 - date unknown)..Apparantly the dressing room was small and hot, Roger accidently sprayed hairspray in Brians ...tempers flared...Freddie broke it up by taking the piss! :-)
In Puebla, Mexico (17/10/1981), taken from link
Unfortunately, there was a security problem and some people (and I emphasize some assholes among crowd of 60000) had a bad attitude throwing to the band shoes, stones, batteries... when Now I'm Here was in the middle section, a guy climbed to the stage but the bodyguard made him fly with only a little push. Also Brian when he was doing the Brighton Rock solo, he got a pantyhose full of sand and got dirty but the group - as professionals - performed as planned. In the end when God Save The Queen was playing, Roger was so pissed off that he took one of the cymbals to throw it away but he turned back and threw it to the drum platform, and Freddie said "Muchas gracias Mexico", "take your shoes" (the ones some people threw to the stage), "Adios amigos you motherfuckers", "Goodbye, ciao" and after that we left the stadium and we could not get out of there until midnight (the show finished by 10:30).
Again in Mexico:
9.10.1981 Estadio Universitario
Monterrey, Nuevo León, México
To the end of the concert one ramp that connected the stadium field with the tribune it broke, (in Mexico there's "moats" around soccer fields, like old castles but whithout water) ramp fell 2m with least 50 people (no dead) while the authorities wanted any responsible they forbade'em to abandon stadium, and Fred, Brian, Rog and John waited inside his cars, to the end Queen's tour manager in Mexico was imprisoned like responsible, and Queen had to pay some like 10,000 dlls of deposit for their freedom.
...some happened in Hyde Park '76, right??? listen to about one dead person
