Brian May has posted a photo of one of Queen's earliest marketing pieces.

Brian says, "From Roger Taylor - in Rog’s own hand - an invitation to one of our first Queen shows, in a lecture theatre at Imperial College (my college) in 1970. It held about 100 people, and we made popcorn and orange juice for the audience!

"This invitation was sent to friends and people we thought might record us! What did we play? 'Keep Yourself Alive,' 'Jesus,' 'Great King Rat,' 'Doin’ All Right,' 'Hangman' ... and others. I’m sure there must be a tape of it somewhere!"
