Freddie about to throw flowers to the crowd during the Hot Space Tour in 1982.
: Neal Preston During the early days, the Queen front man started a tradition that he looked to continue, even when he was playing stadiums.
In a bid to share his peace and love, Freddie would spend some of the final song of their set by giving out roses to his fans.
Such was his thoughtfulness, he ensured that every thorn of the rose’s stem were trimmed of thorns, so not to prick the fingers of the grateful recipients.
