Now i may go off on a little rant here but bear with me

According to various postings some here but mostly elsewhere (youtube) what i can summarise is that Freddie was fat bloated sluggish and ill looking uring the tour and at wembley he was apparantly awful

Firstly all of the above is absolute rubbish

He was'nt fat or bloated or sluggish and if he looked tired then its probably to do with the massive stage he had to negotiate every night and he certainly did not look ill like some people have said because of the sweating he did but with all those lights and moving about the stage anybody would be sweating, just look at roger he was drenched and he was on drums

I personally thought freddie was fantastic at wembley and the only song where his vocals cracked a bit were on I want to break free and having seen clips of other shows on that tour he was great there as well

I dont know where people get off slagging him like this, maybe they got nothing better to do but diss people

The Magic Tour included some of the greatest shows that Freddie ever did, he was awsome and i would say after seeing  the Knebworth show he was the greatest showman of all time ! Nuff said really !!

Yep! Those comments were made by complete MORONS! Even if Freddie was ill, he didn't even show symptoms until after that tour! The Magic gig had some AWESOME concerts!

god forbid the guy gains a few pounds and loses a few hairs as he pushed 40.   Personally I think he was larger than life on the magic tour and wembley.  His voice wasn't at it's peak like on the late 79 to 82 tours, but as a entertainer he was better than ever.  I still think some of the performances was his best ever....In the lap of the gods, who wants to live forever and is this the world we created? are a few examples.
