Still relatively unknown, Queen set out on a tour of the Nordic countries in 1974. The tour turned out to be a disaster: So few tickets were sold that the last shows were cancelled, and the truck with the band's gear drove into a bridge and damaged it all. The band returned victoriously three years later with a bunch of massive hits, and played shows in Scandinavia in 1977, 1978, 1982 and 1986. The book tells the story behind the ups and downs behind the shows, with new interviews with the people involved as well as rare and unseen photographs. The entire story of Queen is also told from scratch, so new fans can start here as well.
