The Rainbow Theatre
Finsbury Park, London, England

The Rainbow Theatre started life in 1930 as the Astoria Cinema. In the 1960s the venue started to host musical acts as well. The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, Jimi Hendrix, and The Rolling Stones all performed there.

In November 1971, the building was renamed the Rainbow Theatre. Over the next 10 years, it became a popular music venue, attracting the most popular artists of the time.

Queen performed there four times in their career; March 1974, twice in November 1974, and December 1979. The building is currently a Pentecostal church.
