Freddie Mercury’s handwritten ’78 concert setlist on auction


Freddie Mercury fans willing to splash the cash can now get their hands on a two-page setlist from one of Queen’s concerts.

The handwritten setlist from Queen’s April 13 1978 Copenhagen concert features many of the band’s hits and is on sale on memorabilia website Moments in Time for $35,000. (according with Dailymail)

Handwritten by frontman Mercury, We Will Rock You is seen as the opening number with Brighton Rock and Somebody to Love following.

The setlist has a certificate of authenticity from the previous owner of the piece printed on Queen’s International Fan Club stationery.

The certificate confirms the list is ‘from the Copenhagen concert April 13 1978.’

The pieces of paper reveal the band’s set in Denmark included a solo from lead guitarist Brian May before moving into track Stone Cold Crazy. 

There are also two sets of encores and a cover of Elvis Presley’s Jailhouse Rock.

Written at the end of the setlist is ‘Hotel!!’, no doubt where the band was planning to end up for post-performance festivities.

Aside,  Queen and Adam Lambert have announced they’ll return to Australia next year for a national stadium tour, off the back of the success of Freddy Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody
After taking nearly A$55 million (NZ$58 million) at Australia’s box office, Bohemian Rhapsody sparked a renewed interest in Queen’s legendary music – and now the band has announced they will be bringing their Rhapsody tour to the country in February 2020.
