1974 : Queen live on Queen II Tour at Rainbow Theatre, London, UK. The band had a huge row on the afternoon of the gig and Brian called Freddie "an old tart" and Freddie stormed off! No one could find him, so everyone went on stage and started shouting "Freddie poos, where are you?". He eventually gave in and came back! John experimented with the sound at the venue by putting one mixer up in the "gods" (the highest seats up in the balcony) and having the other down below. A graphic equalizer was put on the outputs of the mixing desk to compensate for hall acoustics. Roger, for some strange reason, decided to pour beer onto his drums to achieve a spray effect when he hit them. Queen played to 3500 people. The concert was filmed by Trident to use for publicity purposes. Clips were shown on BBC Pop Quiz and a couple of songs filtered through to American rock programmes. Later an edited version was released as a part of Box Of Tricks.
