Queen played the Boston Music Hall on this night in 1976. They had a hit single on the U.S. charts at the time which would vastly accelerate their long way to the top. What was it?

Answer: Bohemian Rhapsody

Here’s the rest of today’s Rock N’ Roll Diary!

  • 1974: Bob Dylan brought his wife Sara on stage at a concert at Nassau Coliseum in New York – she sat quietly on a sofa.
  • 1979: Emerson, Lake, and Palmer disbanded after ten years – they would reunite years later.
  • 1979: A shooting spree by a 17 year old girl in San Diego gave Bob Geld inspiration to write a song for his band The Boomtown Rats. The song – “I Don’t Like Mondays” – became an international hit.
  • 1980: Rush released its Permanent Waves album with its hit “The Spirit of Radio.”
  • 2007: John Mellencamp was among the performers at the dedication ceremony for the Center For The Intrepid – a high tech Army rehab facility for soldiers wounded in combat.
  • In the WZLX ticket stash: Queen was at the Music Hall in 1976. And in 1992 Rod Stewart played the Boston Garden.
