As we all know, Queen performed at Wembley for one last time february 29th 1990. Freddie was, although noticeably ill, a true trooper and kept on dancing and singing till WATC where he chose to just sit down and play the piano while Roger did the vocals. It's quite an iconic piece of Queen history, not only because Freddie was ill and it was the last one but also because for the first and only time ever Freddie belted out the vocals in the opera part of BoRhap. But, oddly enough, no bootleg has showed up (AFAIK). Greg, can you shed some more light on this?

I have heard reports of a bootleg. I can't get an official confirmation, but I was told that Mr. Peach has an A+ recording in his archives.

I am Freddie. I didn't die after all and I will be performing my comeback gig at the Fleece and Firkin in Slough next tuesday, i've fired Brian and Roger though, and hired Dimebag Darrel and Keith Moon. Those guys never did anything anyway. John will be on Bass, it's not really Queen without him.

Elvis and Michael Jackson on backing vocals. Please come please.

The one embarassing part of the gig was right after Freddie insisted on playing "Delilah", he wanted to play it again. God that was embarassing enough the first time, especailly when he started meowing. They put that in the bloopers section of the blu-ray. No one knows for sure if he was drunk or not. Guess we'll never know

Oh come on, be serious. We're trying to have a discussion about an iconic piece of Queen history and all you can do is crack jokes.

Each and every one of you are talking out of your arse-cracks.  Here's why:

1 - My ticket stub says February 31st 1990.  I was there.  If anyone can remember correctly, Lord Lucan introduced the show on Shergar.  Marilyn Monroe then came out on James Dean's shoulders (he was dressed as Superman and she as Stewie Griffin playing the part of Darth Vader) for a rendition of WWRY.

2 - Freddie did NOT do the meowing part of Delilah, due to a sore throat.  Milli Vanilli did this part, along with the singer from Boney-M (RIP).

3 - The howlers part on the deluxe Japanese triple 3D Blu-Ray boxset with obi and bonus 10x 7" vinyl recording of the entire show I have cheated a little.  Most of the footage, in fact, comes from knebworth '86.  Tie Your Mother Down is also sourced from Earls Court '77 and is without the sound drop on the mic.

4 - Freddie Mercury was actually played by Gregory Mullen from One Night of Queen For A Nation. 

So there.

And, FAO of Community, this will officially be released in Russia along with the double DVD of both nights at Earls Court on 37th Julember 2045.  There will be an eclipse of the blue moon.

What? Did Frank Farian die? He was a great singer and producer.
I hope the male dancer of Boney M is still alive!

No, Bobby Farell is dead.  Didn't the guy from Milli Vanilli die a while back, too? (Suicide?)
