This is a great copy of the Zurich audience tape. Thanks to Leo for the tape, kindly supplied by Davide Traversi, head of the Italian Queen fan club “We Will Rock You.”

This tape runs through Sheer Heart Attack. This show often circulated without the second encore, as in this case. The last three tracks are patched in from another version (certainly the same audience source), and sound almost identical to the rest of the show.

My notes:
This is the best (to my knowledge) version of the recording of the first show from the 1980 European tour, which is absolutely an astonishing tour.
The band is on fire.
This first night is a great show too even though they’re not yet in the shape they’d be in by the time they’d hit Birmingham, London, Brussels,…
That said, if someone has a copy of the Strassbourg December 16, 1980 show or a decent copy from the last night (Munich December 18, 1980)…;-)
