Queen - Official HOT SPACE Publicity Photo - RARE - 1982

This original Elektra Records photo was distributed in 1982 to promote Queen's 10th album, HOT SPACE , recorded in Munich. Its dance styled sound departed from Queen's hugely popular rock sound of the Seventies. The band quit touring the following year.
Despite its lackluster reception (and low sales), Michael Jackson cited HOT SPACE as a major inspiration for his THRILLER album.
This publicity photo (showing a rather despondent-looking foursome) was distributed to compensate for the fact that HOT SPACE displayed no real photos of the band, just stylized headshots.
Try to find another one in this condition!
This is a lucky find (or gift) for any completist Queen fan or collector of rare publicity photos of significant Eighties artists.
