Queen Live At The Rainbow

Recommended Posts

Currently on Sky Arts, Queen concert filmed in 1974, when they were a real rock band.

Really good footage and sound for the time, fantastic tracks from their early albums.

A great gig. I first saw them on this tour, at Southampton. 

If I recall they were supported by a band called Hustler. The following year they were supported by the UK band Mr Big (of Romeo fame). There were a superb band and the guitarist/singer (Dicken) was rushing about the whole time he wasn't singing.

Happy days. Queen were the first band I ever got into, after a mate brought a copy of the "Night at the Opera" LP into school, sometime in 1976. This film got fairly regular showings at our local fleapit, often twinned with "The Wall" or "The Song Remains the Same." It was great to see it on the big screen, in all it's grainy grandeur.

show was filmed 31/3/'74 and they were supported by a Liverpool  band called Nutz who also supported (amongst others) Black Sabbath and they went on to appear at the Reading festival.   The bass player and guitarist are still very active in the Liverpool music scene.  Keith (bass) also played with Garth Rocket and the Moonshiners.

I saw them at the Rainbow in 1974 and they were supported by Hustler, it cost £1 in the stalls.

I really liked Queen from the off, and still do, but the night I saw them, they were not great at all, I thought Hustler were the better band on the night.

Personally, I think it wasn't until after Band Aid that they really started to be a really great "live" band.
