“Gallery News of the World Tour” 1977 usa
4 December 1977, Queen performed @ The University of Dayton Arena, Dayton, Ohio, USA 🇺🇸 “News of the World Tour”
This show was played in lieu of the canceled show back on January 29, 1977, on the previous tour.
The January show had to be cancelled due to extremely cold weather. There was an oil shortage, which meant the arena couldn’t be heated. The band offered to play the show without heating, but the Dayton city council refused and pulled the plug.
Brian May recalled the unseasonably cold winter in a Capital Radio interview later in the year: “We were very lucky, actually. We had a very good crew, and they managed to truck the stuff around through all the worst weather, and we only lost one gig in all that bad weather. And that wasn’t because we weren’t there. It’s because they would not allow us to use the power because they had a fuel shortage. That was pretty frustrating, but we managed to fulfill all the contracts, which is great.”
It’s fantastic the band was able to reschedule and play this evening in December
