The very next day I was set to write my Law & The 1978-12-04 - Freddie at the piano by Greenfella_resizedMedia exam at Durham College. Now, normally, on the eve of an exam you could find me desperately trying to cram; but hell, 1978-12-04-Freddie MercuryQueen were in town and tickets had already been purchased well in advance and nothing was going to stop me from going to see Queen when we had 6th row just off centre floor seats. Didn’t hurt my exam either. As it turns out, I scored the highest mark in the class… go figure. At this point in time my best friend Bill was working pretty much full time at The Oshawa Camera Centre. Generally, he would up first thing in the morning so he was always there early. Why is this important with regards to this concert (and most concerts we attended around this point in time)? Well, the local BASS (that’s Best Available Seating Service, a for runner of Ticketmaster) outlet was right outside the store. He would frequently chat up and buy coffee for the young lady who worked at BASS and would, usually, get first dibs at tickets once they went on sale. He had bought tickets for both the December 3rd and December 4th shows, taking said young lady to the previous evenings gig. Personally, I really care how he managed it. The tickets were usually quite excellent so I wasn’t complaining.  Edit this setlist | More Queen setlists
