Queen performed at The Palace Theatre in Waterbury, Connecticut, USA this day in 1976.
This is the opening show of the 1976 US tour, most likely including the first performance of Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon.

About 40 pictures were snapped at this show from the front row. Freddie was aware of the photographer’s presence and really hammed it up for the camera, making for some stunning poses. They are still in the photographer’s possession and unfortunately that’s likely where they will remain. There’s only a couple that we have.

In a 1977 UK newspaper interview, Brian May recalled how this was the first tour where the venues were selling out everywhere. He then spoke about the differences between British and American audiences: “Here the fans are more reserved until they have reached a point where they can explode. In the States they are ready to explode at the beginning. They will give you anything you want – once you gain their favour.”

Freddie Mercury about a biopic

Mercury anticipated that his life would be turned into a movie. “I have visions of actually having a film made of my life story, one day, which I would have a key part in,” said Mercury. “I might not play the lead myself. My dears, the things I’ve done in my lifetime… it’ll be totally triple-X-rated, I’ll tell you!”

Queen, who doesn’t know them? This legendary rock band, in particular singer Freddie Mercury, has the necessary hits to his name. Are you one of those people who, after a few beers, think that your version of Bohemian Rhapsody is so good that you sing along loudly with the radio, despite the fact that nobody has asked for this? Now you have a reason.

Well, what can be said. It is literally in the title. You can sing along Queen songs. We thought SingStar Queen on PlayStation 2 & 3 had already satisfied enough people, but now Let’s Sing Queen is going to fill the void for Queen fans on PlayStation 4. If you are already mouth watering now, don’t worry. Let’s Sing Queen will be released on October 2.

Freddie loved his cars although he never got driving license since it made him bored.⠀

Freddie owned a 1950 Studebaker Champion, designed by Raymond Loewy, it was used in cargo carriers and tanks during World War II.⠀

He also owned a Daimler Limousine, it was bought by Freddie as Queen started becoming more successful and this kind of car was used by Swedish, Danish and English royal families.⠀

The Daimler Limousine was replaced by a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow and it was of course driven by a chauffeur since Freddie didn’t have his license. His car was finished in light grey, with grey leather interiors and wood trims, and featured a cassette player and an in-car telephone. Latest tech back in the day! It was later sold at auction by Coy’s.⠀

In 1986 Freddie purchased a Mercedes Benz 420 SEL and quickly became his favorite car. It was later sold by Sotheby’s in 1996, but was abandoned by its new owner. It waited and rotted in a work site before being found by Ross Waite.⠀

When Freddie bought an apartment in New York, he also bought a Lincoln Town Car, a go-to luxury American car.⠀

And last but not least, Freddie also owned a Range Rover V8 Convertible.⠀
