If you compare Budapest with Knebworth, where does Freddie sound (vocally speaking) the best? Compare these songs with each other from the concerts above: A kind of magic, WATC, under pressure, radio gaga, one vision, who wants to live forever, in the lap of the gods.

Both shows are truly awesome shows.
In the past I would have said his voice was better in Budapest but Knebworth grew on me and he put in some truly magical performances(one vision, another one bites the dust, emotional Who wants to live forever, also great in Budapest that one). The sound of his voice was a bit softer in Budapest and he could get higher easier maybe. I'd really like a fantastic professional recording of both shows. They have the same setlist but are very different in terms of atmosphere and also playing. Knebworth is more agressive(check out the heavier songs, they all sound great!)because they all have a great night. You gotta love how freddie makes contact with that huge audience at Knebworth. Told ya I was gonna get you. Fantastic!

That?s the same feeling I got when I compared the two shows together. In Budapest his voice sounds softer and he hits the high notes much easier than in Knebworth.

That´s probably because Budapest was sped up
