Queen to release rare recording of 1974 concert

Queen Live at the Rainbow 74

The surviving members of Queen have confirmed that they are to release a rare recording of their landmark concert at The Rainbow.

Live At The Rainbow ’74 has been scheduled for release on the 8th of September in a variety of formats.

The show was originally recorded on the 31st of March 1974 and was due to be released after the concert, but Queen instead chose to release what became their breakthrough studio album, Sheer Heart Attack. The live recording has remained in the Queen archive for over 40 years.
