Hi, guys. I'm 18.. from Hong Kong.
i am a new registrant here.


Which live version of Bohemian Rhapsody you like?

I like 'live at the Bowl' in 1982 and the Wembley version in 1986.
it's awesome that the song was played on concerts.

The early live version, where they didn't play the tape but included the performable parts in a medley.

Montreal 81 and Budapest 86. Freddie's voice in excellent shape.

Same here. Although I liked the later period when they played most of the song, I enjoyed those early versions more

Newcastle December 4, 1979. Freddie sings it perfectly. About all of the Crazy Tour versions are great, though. As for official releases, I like Montreal.

Newcastle '79 (second night), Hammersmith Odeon '79. and Chicago 1980 are my three favorite performances of the song in terms of how Freddie's voice sounds.

In terms of atmosphere and overall "magic" feel to the song, Wembley '86 (second night) has it, even if Freddie's voice is nowhere near as strong.

Wholeheartedly agree.
