Updated: 07-2022


Queen
Live at the Congresgebouw
The Hague, The Netherlands
December 8th, 1974
Audience Recording
Sound Quality: B+
Attendance: Less than 5,000

This is Queen’s first show in The Netherlands, a country in which they would play perform some of their most legendary concerts in the years to come. For decades, this recording had been rumored to exist, and in 2012, a CD pressing of the concert was given out to the attendees of the Dutch Queen Fan Club convention and soon found it’s way online. Only about half the show was captured, but something is better than nothing, especially when it’s in great quality. From the sounds of it, the band are very strong tonight. Roger is in very good shape and really hits the skins with intensity at this show (Now I’m Here and Father to Son are standout performance). Freddie sounds great as he always does in 1974, and they leave a great first impression on the Dutch crowd. It should be noted that this concert didn’t sell very well due to poor promotion, and people were let in for free as the show progressed, so there is no accurate attendance number for this night, but the capacity of the venue is about 5,000.
