#Otd, December 11th , 1977 - #Queen played at #Summit, #Houston, #Texas, #USA
(more on my last year`s post : instagram.com/p/BckexUflYmk/)
The filming (pro-shot footage that was shown on the big video screens during the concert) was the result of an agreement with the venue not only for Queen, but plenty of artists who played at the Summit during this period. The performance is fantastic overall. This show was also filmed by Bob Harris' Old Grey Whistle Test crew, along with plenty of other footage (on and off stage) from the tour, originally intended for a documentary for TV in spring 1978 that ultimately never aired. Some of the Bob Harris footage from Houston was first seen in the 2011 Queen documentary "Days Of Our Lives" that aired on BBC Two. Rhys Thomas, producer of that documentary, has confirmed that Houston was the only complete show filmed on the tour. He added that there are bits of Houston footage from other angles as well, often filmed from backstage, with no audio, and no complete songs. On #BBC`s #QueenRockTheWorld documentary much of the backstage footage in the documentary is from Houston as well, including footage of Mercury speaking about the show afterward - particularly about how he tripped and fell in his entrance for Now I'm Here, about Brian's broken string in Liar, and how audience enthusiasm is "up and down" on this tour, compared to the smaller venues of the previous tour.
Overall, this video perfectly exemplifies Freddie's balance of showman and musician, between his choice of attire (black and white tights and the silver lurex suit), his one third of the show spent at the piano, and his sheer command on stage at every moment.
Perfectly summarized Freddie really❤👌. Enjoy an edit I made with parts of the explosive #WeWillRockYou+ elegant performance of #MyMelancholyBlues (© ✒& 📷 & Queenlive, Queenconcerts , 🎥©BBC )
