FanFriggin’Tastic! –Rick 34 What you see me wearing here cost a mere £25!! You have to realize when we started this tour, we had nothing!! Forty pounds a week I think we were on . . 99; overall look, priceless!!! –Joe 35 36 I know none of us are in this shot, but it’s still an important picture. This is our first-ever headline show in a stadium, at Jack Murphy Stadium, San Diego, California, in 1983. It was the last show of the American tour, which started just a few months earlier with us supporting Billy Squier.
We’d met Brian back in ’81 when we opened for Rainbow in Munich and Queen were in town recording Hot Space. I remember with great fondness watching Brian sound checking, and him playing “Photograph”!! To a bunch of young kids who grew up on Queen it was a magical moment, as was our shredding version of CCR’s “Travelin’ Band,” which has since been given an official release on the remastered Pyromania. –Joe 48 49 50 Probably my favorite image of Steve. ” He’d play three notes from the riff, then stop and point at one side of the arena, then do the other side and play them off against each other.
It was the last show of the American tour, which started just a few months earlier with us supporting Billy Squier. It shows how big we’d become in such a short time . . overnight success in five years! –Joe 37 38 39 40 41 This looks like we’re were trying to pose for a poster!!! Accidental, obviously, but I seem to remember we did use it for something like that. –Joe 42 Another classic poster moment! This is the four-guitar attack, “Switch 625,” 1983-style!!! A. Forum, 1983. I don’t know how this came about, but Brian May joined us onstage for the encore!
