On March 31st, 1974, Queen performed a landmark show at London’s The Rainbow and on Tuesday (9/9), you can own it in various formats.
The gig, which took place at the end of the band’s first countrywide tour as headliners, will be available as a set called Queen: Live at the Rainbow ’74 on CD, DVD, Blu-ray, vinyl and digitally, as either a standard edition or a deluxe edition with bonus material like a hardback book with rare photos.
The concert was actually originally recorded to come out as a live album, but the band opted to shelve the set so they could instead work on what would go on to be their 1974 album, Sheer Heart Attack. Forty years later, you can get the package. GRAB IT ON TUESDAY.
RELATED AUDIO: Guitarist Brian May explained to us how the band got to be big enough to have their first English tour.
TIDBIT: The set includes over a dozen tracks never before released on any official Queen live album.
TALKING POINT: Will you be buying Queen: Live at the Rainbow ’74? OUT THIS WEEK
