Amazing Photos of Queen Live at the Hammersmith Odeon in London on December 26, 1979

Crazy Tour was a short tour by Queen during November and December 1979. After the release of the single "Crazy Little Thing Called Love", the band decided to change the concert dynamic they used to do the last years. In this tour Queen would revisit smaller venues, many which held fewer than two thousand seats. Nonetheless, it was the highly awaited UK leg of the successful Jazz Tour.

The last concert of this tour at the Hammersmith Odeon was also the first concert of the Concerts for the People of Kampuchea, which were performed over a few days at the Hammersmith Odeon in London. Other performers included The Who (who played for three hours), Wings, The Pretenders, Elvis Costello & The Attractions, The Clash, and the members of Led Zeppelin (minus Jimmy Page). A bootleg recording of this concert exists as the 2-CD set Crazy Tour of London.
