A Night at the Opera Tour was a concert tour in 1975 by Queen to promote their album A Night at the Opera. It spanned from 1975 to 1976 and covered Europe, the United States, Japan, and Australia. This was the first appearance of Bohemian Rhapsody, which went on to be played at every Queen gig from the A Night At The Opera Tour to The Magic Tour.

Concert Recordings[edit]

No visual-recording of the tour has been released on home video. The Christmas Eve concert at the Hammersmith Odeon was video-taped and broadcast live on the long-running BBC music programme The Old Grey Whistle Test. From 2009, the concert has been rebroadcast occasionally on the BBC. This version included a newly recorded introduction by Bob Harris (in front of the Hammersmith Odeon) and the concert itself was slightly edited.
