LISTEN: Queen Live in Portland, ME 1974
We can barely contain our excitement for the premiere of the Queen movie, Bohemian Rhapsody! The very special WBLM showing happens on November 1st at Flagship Premium Cinemas in Falmouth and on Friday, it's out everywhere.
So how 'bout this to stoke our passion for Queen this week? Your friends at the Blimp have found a quality audio recording of Freddie, Brian, Roger and John on their first American tour. It's not just any show, it's the Portland, Maine show!
On Queen's inaugural trek in the US 44 years ago, they were the opening act for Mott the Hoople. An historic stop in Southern Maine happened at the Portland Expo on April 28, 1974.
Here's the 45 minute warm-up setlist.
And now, on with the show!
