Hello !

I would like to ask You at which concerts Freddie sang along with the taped God Save The Queen Outro ?
Also I'd like to ask if Mr. Bad Guy was performanced by orchestra like Queen songs on The Queen Symphony Album ?

Greetings !

I can answer the first question...

The only time I know of that Freddie sang along with GSTQ was in Vienna 5-12-82, which you can see as a bonus track on the official Live At The Bowl DVD.

If you are asking if the orchestral sounds on the original Mr. Bad guy track are an actual orchestra, the answer is yes... as far as I'm aware.

Are you SURE that's an orchestra - there's no credit onthe album! - Sure it's not a sampler?

I'd like to know if there is an album on which orchestra rearranged Mr. Bad Guy ? Like Tolga Kaschif who released the Queen Symphony album...

I'm pretty positive I remember an interview where Freddie was talking about working with an orchestra on Mr. Bad Guy and telling them to 'go nuts'.

There's also a bit on the Freddie box set of the orchestra working out the arrangement. It's brief (40 seconds), but it's a live orchestra.
