Freddie Mercury’s tradition at every single gig once involved a cemetery

Freddie Mercury had an uncanny habit of connecting with his audience, no matter how intimate or not the gig may be.

During the early days, the Queen front man started a tradition that he looked to continue, even when he was playing stadiums.

In a bid to share his peace and love, Freddie would spend some of the final song of their set by giving out roses to his fans.

Such was his thoughtfulness, he ensured that every thorn of the rose's stem were trimmed of thorns, so not to prick the fingers of the grateful recipients.

Fan site FreddieMercuryClub reveals: "At the end of every Queen show (mostly in Queen's early gigs from 1975 to 1978) Freddie would throw a handful of flowers into his adoring audience. I'm sure you've noticed this if you've watched Queen's 70s concerts.
