#OTD, December 13th in #Queen history .
1979 - Queen played at #LyceumBallroom,#London, #UK. (more on my last year`s post : instagram.com/p/BrV5n7ch9EK/) .
Queen is back to reign again.Queen are playing mostly small, totally uneconomic halls like Lyceum on this tour showing they still care.It`s impossible not to feel impressed as they hurtled through everything from Bohemian Rhapsody to We Are The Champions. ©✒ John Dlaye .
After the gig Queen went to the "Crazy Hats" party held at #LegendsNightClub in London. Mrs. #GertrudeShilling presented the band with gold discs for "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" & "Live Killers" .
Queen presented a new album in a London club, I got in between so I could interview them for #Countdown. The record company always promised a conversation with Freddie Mercury, but in the end you never got him in front of the camera. Only #ErikDeZwart succeeded once - he continued to ask Brian May questions about Freddie until he was added. I heard that you would not enter the club without a crazy hat. So I bought a bobby helmet from a tourist stall & I stopped that thing during the interview. Brian May himself was wearing a polar bear.

1986 - #LiveInBudapest film was opened to public in Budapest / #LiveMagic andcharted No 3
2010 - The DVD #QueenTalks with a compilation of Queen's Fan Club Massages from 1986 to 2010 was published by the Official International Queen Fan Club .
Well who can blame Freddie for not wanting to make interviews after many stupid interviews or reviews? The hat story cracks me up, love how Queen were always so interesting in their parties. And I also love how despite their big successes they also could go to small venues in order to reach all kind of audiences. ❤A great reminder of how quality Queen used to be.
