Queen performed at The Montreal Forum in Montreal, Quebec, Canada this day in 1977. A fan who attended all of Queen’s shows at the Montreal Forum recalled this one to be the best – even though the venue was only half full.
You Take My Breath Away was especially well received by the crowd.
Ian Hunter and producer Roy Thomas Baker attended this show, and they’re seen in the eighth picture.
In the first of the two concert pictures, someone is holding a microphone in the first pic, indicating that an audio recording of this show may exist. The pre-show picture of Freddie Mercury was actually snapped by Brian May.
There is a review from the next day’s Montreal Gazette following the pictures. The pictures were taken by Michael Ochs archives for Getty’s Images.
