“Britain’s most regal band awaits your presence…” Melody Maker, December 1975
– Due to the television and radio coverage (including numerous edited repeats), this concert became the most heavily bootlegged of the band’s career. This concert spawned innumerable bootlegs, such as… ‘Command Performance’, ‘High Voltage’, ‘Rhapsody In Red’, ‘Christmas At The Beeb’, ‘Cardiac Arrest’ and the curiously titled ‘Halfpence’
– Queen first played the Hammersmith Odeon on December 14th 1973, as support to Mott The Hoople – they performed two shows on the same day.
– Queen performed nine concerts at London’s Hammersmith Odeon in their career, six of them in 1975.
