“Back chat back chat…You burn all my energy
Back chat back chat…Criticizing all you see”
9 August 1982 – Queen released Back Chat (remix) with B-Side ‘Staying Power’ in the UK
The soulful track “Back Chat” was written by John Deacon. He plays guitars, as well as synth, and it’s a complete departure from what has come to be called “the Queen sound” and was the subject of much heartfelt discussion with the ranks. It sets a great example of how John was strongly pulling the band into dance orientated genres such as R&B, Disco, and funk.

9 August 1986 – Queen’s final live performance ever with the Legendary Freddie Mercury @ Knebworth Park, Hertfordshire, UK 🇬🇧 This show is christened ‘The Queen Tornado.’ It was officially billed ‘A Night of Summer Magic.’
For the last time, the four of Queen will perform a phenomenal concert packed with hits. 15 years of music – a bittersweet end to an era!
It’s so hard to believe it wasn’t professionally recorded!
Queen went out in style, playing for an estimated 120,000 fans (some sources claim it was as high as 200,000). At the time, it was the largest single paying audience for a UK rock concert in over ten years. Thousands of fans camped outside the park gates the night before. It was classed as one of their finest performances. Absolutely phenomenal!
This last date was added after the Wembley Stadium shows in July had sold out so quickly, (Brian later said how the band could have probably done 5 or 6 nights at Wembley). In fact, the promoter, Harvey Goldsmith, had already booked the park anyway, as he was sure the extra show would be necessary, and Wembley wasn’t available for more dates.
