Queen continued on the second leg of their News Of The World Tour, ending with a three-night stint at the Empire Pool, Wembley – soon to be renovated and rebranded as Wembley Arena. Some thirty thousand people splashed out on tickets, at £4.25 a head, relishing the excitement of ‘We Will Rock You’ – the slow and fast versions – and ‘We Are The Champions’ – the natural bookends to a thirty song set that still bowed out with ‘Jailhouse Rock’ and ‘God Save The Queen’.
A much-needed break allowed the band time for a summer holiday before recording sessions resumed, with Roy Thomas Baker returning to the producer’s seat, albeit for the last time. The decision to part company with Mike Stone wasn’t entirely unanimous, but Roy had just finished an album with singer Peter Straker, a close friend of Freddie Mercury’s who also had production input and financed the finished disc. This One’s On Me reignited Mercury and Baker’s relationship and soon enough, everyone fell back into the old routine.
