The concert was filmed and broadcasted on BBC 1, and multiple audio recordings were made by audience members that have since appeared on bootlegs.

Availability[edit | edit source]

Despite the concert being well-known among fans of the band, the available video recording of this concert is incomplete; lacking parts of some songs, some of which don't even appear at all, including the most complete version beginning with the opening cover of Jailhouse Rock concluding.

Although the video recordings of some songs have gone uncirculated, there exist some bootleg audio recordings of the full concert that circulate online - leaving the video recordings as the only lost element of the concert. Partial footage from the concert was remastered and used in the film Queen - A Night At The Odeon, which was released as part of the super-deluxe edition for the remastered live album.
