Queen August 27, 1982 – The band performed at The Myriad in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA with Billy Squier. Hot Space Tour
The wonderful review of the show said, “Queen and their lights kept the audience of nearly 10,000 people standing on their chairs during the 85 minute concert. Queen’s light show deserves special notice. It always offered something new and never interfered with the performance. Yet what makes these lights stand out is that they were four additional members of the band.
Queen has been playing ‘Bohemian Rhapsody for six years now. Mercury, at the piano, sang it and played it as if it was his first time, intense in the soft moments, breaking into the rocking climax.
Queen saved their three biggest hits for the encore, crowning the evening with, ‘Another One Bites The Dust,’ ‘We Will Rock You’ and ‘We Are The Champions,’ all performed with enthusiasm.
Queen exhibits untapped emotions in their heavily produced studio material when presenting it on stage. With sophisticated technology floating above them, Queen gave the Myriad audience an unpretentious, simple yet talented rock ‘n’ roll performance.
