Footnotes

  • Queen ended their 'A Day At The Races' tour with two sold out shows at London's Earls Court Arena. The proceeds from these concerts went to the HRH Queen's Silver Jubilee Appeal, which was that year.

    Queen were considered to be pioneers of rock concert spectacles. The scale model in this lot was used to plan out the first of a kind mobile lighting rig used at the Earls Court concerts. It has been reported that the band paid £50,000 for the impressive lighting rig for these shows alone. The giant crown was 25 feet tall by 54 feet wide and weighed two tons.
