Today’s Blimp Time-Hop


Their first appearance in Blimpville was at the Portland Expo on April 28, 1974 then the Lewiston Armory in February of 1975.


The third show happened the first year that the Cumberland County Civic Center opened in November of 1977. In 1980 they came back to Portland for the last time, able to leave their fur coats behind for a summer night in Maine.  On August 27, 1980, Queen rocked us silly on The Game Tour. The show opened with Freddie in all his outrageous brilliance, wearing a black leather motorcycle jacket and launching into Jailhouse Rock. The sheer power of his four-octave vocal range stills echoes today within the walls of the CCCC!

Earlier this week, it was announced that the  Freddie Mercury biopic, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody has been cast and will begin filming very soon. Yes!

Check out this rarely seen TV special from The Game era! Ringo and his wife, Barbara Bach are in the intro and John Cleese shows up around 22:00 to express his “distaste” for Queen.

We can’t find the Portland set-list. Here’s what Queen played in Providence the night before. It’s probably pretty close.
