Referring to XL’s earlier HALEN HEARTY release on the title side labels; both bootlegs come from the same tour (which one is better?). XL and ETS titles were made by the same person(s).

Japan: 1985

Japan: 1985

Source: Audience recording from the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham, UK on 01 September 1984 (2nd night of a three night run). This is confirmed information, so this is definitely not a Japan concert in disguise (for a change).

ETS 2563 A: Tear It Up/ Tie Your Mother Down / Under Pressure / Somebody To Love / Killer Queen / The Seven Seas Of Rhye / Keep Yourself Alive / Liar
ETS 2563 B: It’s A Hard Life / Staying Power / Dragon Attack / Now I’m Here / Is This The World We Created / Love Of My Life
ETS 2564 A: Stone Cold Crazy / Brian May Guitar Solo / Hammer To Fall / Another One Bites The Dust / Crazy Little Thing Called Love / Saturday Night’s All Right For Fighting
ETS 2564 B: Bohemian Rhapsody / Radio Ga Go / I Want To Break Free / Sheer Heart Attack / We Will Rock You / We Are The Champions / God Save The Queen

The recording runs a bit too slow. It’s A Hard Life and Freddie’s speech after that were cut due to a tape change; B+ rating. Three further sources exist for this night.


Out of all the Japanese Queen bootlegs, this was one of the least desirable ones over the years, when looking at the popsike data. Someone just tried offering it at 150 and then at 250 Euros (yes, in that order) and it failed to sell each time.





Japan 1985 – Culture Club played concert dates in Japan in June of ’84.

A copy of this title sold for a remarkable $280 in January of 2015

Source: Supposedly recorded at Brendan Byrne Arena, East Rutherford, NJ on 12 November 1984 but this is unconfirmed. As there are songs here from their Waking Up With The House On Fire album, which was released in late October of ’84, the recording seems to come from that tour.

2561 A: The Dive / Unfortunate Thing / I’ll Tumble 4 Ya / The Medal Song / Time
2561 B: Church Of The Poisoned Mind / Do You Really Want To Hurt Me / Mistake No.3 / Karma Chameleon
2562 A: It’s A Miracle / Dangerous Man / Mister Man / Mannequin
2556 B: Miss Me Blind / Hello Goodbye / The War Song / That’s The Way (I’m Only Trying To Help You) / Crime Time

“Track B4 fades out early, and track C1 fades into the middle of the first verse.”


This track listing from a radio broadcast from a concert in Sydney from July of 1984 seems to indicate that the ETS bootleg comes indeed from a later concert):
01. Take Control
02. Mister Man
03. I’ll Tumble 4 Ya
04. It’s a Miracle
05. Karma Chameleon
06. Black Money
07. Love Twist
08. Do You Really Want to Hurt Me
09. Church of the Poison Mind
10. Victims
11. Time (Clock of the Heart)

Tracks missing:
12. Miss Me Blind
13. White Boy
14. That’s the Way (I’m Only Trying to Help You)
15. Melting Pot
