6 April 1975, Queen performed @ The Paramount Northwest Theater in Seattle, Washington 🇺🇸
“Sheer Heart Attack” Tour
The band close out their second leg of their first world tour tonight. They played 40 shows in North America!
It was a double bill with Kansas playing first, with each band doing their own set with encores. Some accounts say Styx was the opening act.
A fan who attended the show claims that after each band played their respective sets, they joined forces to play a fairly lengthy set together.
A 16-year-old Nikki Sixx attended this show, having slept on the sidewalk the night before the show to get a good seat.
The band soon took off to Hawaii for a week-long vacation, a much-needed rest before their pending first tour of Japan. A show scheduled for April 7 in Portland was cancelled, likely to rest Freddie’s voice for the bigger shows to come.
Their tour would commence on 19 April 1975 in Tokyo.
