Crazy Tour was a short tour by the English rock band Queen during November and December 1979.

After the release of the single "Crazy Little Thing Called Love", the band decided to change the concert dynamic they used to do the last years. In this tour Queen would revisit smaller venues, many which held fewer than two thousand seats. Nonetheless, it was the highly awaited UK leg of the successful Jazz Tour. The last concert of this tour at the Hammersmith Odeon was also the first concert of the Concerts for the People of Kampuchea.[1] A bootleg recording of this concert exists as the 2-CD set Crazy Tour of London.[2]
