Queen: Municipal Auditorium, New Orleans

Sylvie Simmons, Sounds, 2 December 1978

IT'S BEEN five years or so since Queen last played in New Orleans and the fans, having heard the glowing reports of last year's US tour, are going crazy. Flashguns are popping all over. They don't want to miss a thing. An evening with the exuberant and outrageous Mr Mercury, a chance to stand and stare and all-join-in-together. But really just another expensive charade.
