Queen - Live at Hammersmith

Status Partially Lost

On December 1979, a series of concerts featuring Queen, The Clash, The Who, etc. were held at the Hammersmith Odeon in London, England; for the benefit of the victims of war-torn Cambodia. These series of concerts were called "Concerts for the people of Kampuchea".

This was Queen's last 70's performance and Freddie Mercury's last performance before he grew his long mustache 6 years later after the performance. The band's performance at the concert was critically acclaimed and is often seen as one of the band's best live performances.

The concert was filmed (and presumably broadcasted), and audio from the concert was also recorded by the audience, many consider this to be one of the most well-known Queen concerts recorded on video.

But despite it being enormously well-known by almost every Queen fan, the recording of this concert is incomplete; lacking parts of some songs, some of which don't even appear at all, it even begins with the whole opening song (a Jailhouse Rock cover) literally ending.

To make it more clear, here's the setlist for the concert, with (*) being the songs that are partially missing, and (**) being the songs that are completely lost. Notice that by partially missing, it's not that they're missing just a bit of the song or even half of the song, but almost the entire thing.

  1. Jailhouse Rock (*)
  2. We Will Rock You 
  3. Let Me Entertain You 
  4. Somebody to Love 
  5. If You Can't Beat Them (**)
  6. Mustapha (*)
  7. Death on Two Legs 
  8. Killer Queen 
  9. I'm in Love with My Car 
  10. Get Down, Make Love 
  11. You're My Best Friend 
  12. Save Me 
  13. Now I'm Here 
  14. Don't Stop Me Now 
  15. Spread Your Wings (**)
  16. Love of My Life 
  17. '39 
  18. Keep Yourself Alive (**)
  19. Drum Solo (**)
  20. Guitar Solo (**)
  21. Silent Night (**)
  22. Brighton Rock (**)
  23. Crazy Little Thing Called Love 
  24. Bohemian Rhapsody (*)
  25. Tie Your Mother Down 
  26. Encore:
  27. Sheer Heart Attack 
  28. We Will Rock You 
  29. We Are the Champions 
  30. God Save the Queen

Even though some songs aren't available on video, there are still some bootleg audio recordings of the full concert that circulate online, so not the whole concert is lost, only the songs that weren't filmed on video, or that were but for some reason remain lost.
