“HOT SPACE TOUR 1982” is known as a treasure trove of performances and sound sources. A new excavation master appears from the North American edition. The new excavation master was held in Philadelphia on July 24, 1982. This is a long audience recording. Recording has been known for this show for a long time, but this work is a new master that has become much longer with the same sound source.
The previous version was about 82 minutes until “Tie Your Mother Down” in the second half of the show, but this work is a long live album of about 93 minutes with 4 songs from the start to the end. “HOT SPACE TOUR” is famous for its European leg masterpieces, but this is a North American leg.

Let's start with a look at the entire tour.
"March" HOT SPACE "completed"
-April 9-May 22: Europe (26 performances)
"May 21" HOT SPACE "released"
-May 29-June 5: United Kingdom (4 (Performance)
 · July 21-September 15: North America (33 performances) ← ★ Coco ★
 · October 19-November 3: Japan (6 performances)

This is QUEEN in 1982. Circuit between Continental Europe and the UK with the release of "HOT SPACE", and then off for about a month and a half. I visited North America and Japan from summer to autumn. The Philadelphia performance of this work is a re-starting period of such re-partitioning. The concert was the third performance of the North American leg.
This work that recorded such a show is a dynamic sound that has been upgraded to clear. As a matter of fact, the master this time is the “luvsufo” collection. RAINBOW's CD “HARRISBURG 1982” has been very well received, but this work was also found as part of the same series excavation.
And I doubt my ears after the upgrade. Previously, the master was cloudy and cloudy, but this new excavation master cleared as if it had wiped away the cloudy glasses with steam and cleared to an overwhelming level.
Since the recording itself is the same, the sense of distance and the sound of the hall will not change, but the performance sound that penetrates the feeling of air is clear like a laser beam, and the details are clearly understood.
If you know a master before, you will be surprised that this is the same recording !? Even if you haven't listened to it, it's a beautiful recording that you'll hear in 1982. The show drawn with such an upgrade sound is a great North American performance that resembles a European leg.

Speaking of the symbol of the European leg, the official board “QUEEN ON FIRE” is the most important thing. ● NEWS OF THE WORLD (3 songs + α) ・ We Will Rock You (Fast) / Get Down Make Love / We Will Rock You / We Are The Champions ● THE GAME (6 songs) ・ Play The Game / Dragon Attack / Save Me / Crazy Little Thing Called Love / Another One Bites The Dust
・ Songs that can not be heard at QUEEN ON FIRE: Rock It (Prime Jive) ● HOT SPACE (5 songs) ・ Action This Day / Staying Power / Under Pressure ・ Songs that cannot be heard at QUEEN ON FIRE: Calling All Girls / Body Language
● Others (4 songs) ・ Now I'm Here “SHEER HEART ATTACK” / Bohemian Rhapsody “The Night of Opera” / Tie Your Mother Down “Gorgeous Race” / Fat Bottomed Girls “JAZZ” It has become. In "QUEEN ON FIRE", the snowstorm collapsed directly from "Flash" theme to "We Will Rock You (Fast)", but in the North American leg, "Rock It (Prime Jive)" was inserted between them. Changed to a medley arrangement for “We Will Rock You (Fast)”. In addition, “Calling All Girls” and “Body Language” of “HOT SPACE” are also included in the set, making it a set reminiscent of a Japanese performance.
The opening “Rock It (Prime Jive)” is also very cool and the “HOT SPACE” number is also valuable. It has evolved into a show with a good response. More intense than that set is the performance itself.
Anyway, Freddy is doing great! Speaking of the North American edition of 1982, “OAKLAND 1982” is known as a top-class performance, but this work is not inferior.
The honor of “HOT SPACE TOUR”, which is well-known in the history of QUEEN live, is due to the great performance of the European leg, but this performance in Philadelphia is comparable to that miracle of the European leg. Moreover, this work is long. You can enjoy the full show not only in Philadelphia performances, but also in the highlights of “We Will Rock You” and “We Are The Champions” that were not recorded even in “OAKLAND 1982” (“Get Down Make Love ”“ Another One Bites The Dust ”at the beginning, there is a tape change and a cut that seems like a tape, so it is not completely complete, but both were recorded before entering the main riff). “HOT SPACE TOUR 1982” is famous for Freddie ’s best performance in “QUEEN ON FIRE”.
It is a live album that can be enjoyed with a set different from the European leg while being a hyper tension live equivalent to that official work. "OAKLAND 1982" with the first release of the rare song "Put Out The Fire", or this full-show work. A new masterpiece that will compete with the highest peaks of North America in 1982 for both the performance and sound.
