Throwback Concert: Queen at Waterbury’s Palace Theater 1976

Throwback Concert: Queen at Waterbury’s Palace Theater 1976

99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating another great year in our history: 1976!

That year Queen kicked off its “A Night At The Opera” North American Tour at Waterbury’s Palace Theater. Queen had performed twice before at The Palace: 1974 and 1975. This show in ’76 was their final show at The Palace, but first time ever Queen had performed the song Bohemian Rhapsody live on American soil. How cool is that?

Today we take a trip back to 1976 and revisit this historic Queen concert
