What tour is the best? What tour is the weakest? Including setlist, musicianship, Freddie's vocals, stage setup and lighting rigs.

I don't think that I've heard enough bootlegs to form my own opinion, but I think that Crazy Tour is one of the best. I also quite like Hot Space Tour.

Crazy Tour 1979 - Freddie's voice in great shape, a lot of flawless performances from members and great setlists. The lightning rig was incredible apperently.

How i would loved to see them between 1970 and 1972 and rank these shows. I know they were still practising but imagine you were attending their first show on 27th june 1970 and even better, that you took pictures....

I’m surprised, positively, that a lot of us rank “the works” tour so high. Although I like the set lists, for some reason I don’t like that tour so much, maybe it’s the mixing of the shows, or the drum set up and extra synths, etc. I tend to prefer the sound of the Hot Space tour, and even the Magic tour, for example, over it. But it’s great to know, maybe I should listen more to some bootlegs from that tour !
