Throwback Concert: Queen at New Haven Coliseum 1982

Throwback Concert: Queen at New Haven Coliseum 1982

99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating another great year in our history: 1982!

That year PLR presented Queen at New Haven Coliseum. Queen hit the road for its “Hot Space” Tour and brought special guest Billy Squire with them. Queen was supporting its tenth studio album, “Hot Space,” which featured the 1981 hit with David Bowie, Under Pressure. 

This tour ended up being Queen’s last concerts in North America to feature Freddie Mercury and John Deacon.

Today we revisit Queen’s 1982 concert in New Haven…
