Comment:

Incomplete stereo soundboard recording in amazing sound quality. Queen played 9 concerts in a row in Sun City 1984 on October 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 18, 19, and 20. This recording features the second-last night, but it misses almost the whole second half of the concert. The complete recording does exist. Freddie says after Tie Your Mother Down: ''Hello Sun City! Is everybody okay!? Are you ready for a rock'n'roll party!? Okay, right now we are gonna give you Under Pressure''. A nice short My Fairy King improvisation before the start of Killer Queen, so it includes a little surprise. I Want To Break Free is cut on the middle and Now I'm Here misses the last few seconds on the end. This version also includes a few snippets of Another One Bites The Dust, Hammer To Fall and Crazy Little Thing Called Love. A bonus track is also included, which features an interview from Irish radio 1986 with Brian and Roger talking about the concerts in Sun City. No copy erorrs. Mp3 sourced, but it was originally shared only in mp3 by the person who has the original cassettes.

Comment:

Stereo soundboard recording from the second-last concert in Sun City 1984. This version released by bootleg label ''Wardour'' contains the second half of the concert. Love Of My Life is cut in the middle and We Are The Champions misses the last bit. It's unsure if the Stone Cold Crazy medley and/or Brian's guitar solo was performed. The whole recording was shared on the internet for free as mp3 only down the line by someone who has a copy of the original cassette tapes, but it's hard to tell which version ''Wardour'' used. The sound quality of the second half of the concert sounds the best I have heard so far. No copy errors. Most likely mp3 sourced.
