Queen: Night At Odeon Night At The Opera Tour 1975 (Blu-ray) 2015 DTS HD Master Audio 96kHz/24bit 11-13-15 Release Date
This Hammersmith Christmas concert was the culmination of the 26-date 'Queen invites you to A Night At The Opera' UK tour of 1975, and was the last show of a very eventful and exciting year for Queen. The Christmas Eve show was the climax of the 26-date Queen Invite You To A Night At The Opera Tour, which had begun mid-November and had already seen the band play four nights at the same venue a month earlier. By the time the band returned to Hammersmith on Christmas Eve, they were truly firing on all cylinders. No expense had been spared, from the stellar light show which lent a spectacular visual element to the night's proceedings to the suitably lavish white Bechstein grand piano which had been hired especially for this show. Nor had the band themselves overlooked the finer sartorial details. Freddie Mercury sported two different satin cat suits - one black, one white - during the show, designed by Wendy deSmet with the singer's input. Similarly, Freddie had painted the nails of his left hand black for the occasion, while Brian May had his (at the time) trademark white nails.
