Queen: Oakland Auditorium, Oakland CA
Mark Cooper, Record Mirror, 2 August 1980
HALF WAY through this show, Freddie Mercury finds a pack of disposable razors that someone has lobbed on stage, a fairly unsubtle hint as to what he should do with his new moustache. Naturally he ignores the advice and swears by his whiskers and at the press who must have been less than kind to his new style. Personally I think that Freddie's current look, a cross between Oliver Reed playing a Hollywood villain and one of the Village People, suits his music and his style to a T.
