Queen: Live in Concert
We will rock you with a special performance recorded in England on June 5, 1982 as Queen headlines Live in Concert on Kalamazoo's Rock Station.
I won't be a rock star. I will be a legend
The world was shocked when we lost Freddie Mercury on November 24, 1991. Thankfully, the music lives on. This week on Live in concert, you'll hear an incredible performance from Mercury, Brian May, John Deacon and Roger Taylor as we present Queen recorded at the National Bowl on June 5, 1982.
"Under Pressure," would turn out to be the only memorable hit from their Hot Space album that come out earlier in the year, but the band had plenty of fan favorites to add to the show at this point. "We Will Rock You" is the show opener and you'll be treated to "Somebody to Love," "Fat Bottomed Girls," "Another One Bites the Dust," and more before they return to "We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions" for the finale. Of course, they do an unforgettable live version of "Bohemian Rhapsody."
"Wish You Were Here" and the album's title track are plucked from Pink Floyd's Momentary Lapse of Reason tour, specifically, August 20, 1988 at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York. From the West coast, it's Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers at Grand Olympic Auditorium in L.A. on October16, 2002. Finally, to make this week's show a world tour edition of Live in Concert, we go to Cannes, France on January 29, 1986 for a Pete Townsend set featuring a couple of Who favorites.
It's another dream team lineup on this week's edition of Live in Concert and your ticket is comped. Don't miss the show, Saturday night at 8, on Kalamazoo's Rock Station, 107.7 RKR.
