Just compare the common video to multi-cam of Freddie which is a bonus on the 2nd DVD of Wembley 1986:

common video from 2:23 to 2:28 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64jysRDVajY&playnext=1&list=PLFEE3665A0689A54B&index=44

and the same moment multi-cam of Freddie from 2:25 to 2:30 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PkQkLFyE-E

It seems that all matches up, but only these 5 seconds don't match up. On the common video Freddie holds microphone in the left hand and on multi-cam at the same moment he holds it in right hand.

Any ideas?

Very weird indeed. I think they just dropped in the footage from the last time he sings it at 2:55 in the Queen cam version. But no idea why.

I don't think so as there's a different bit at 2:55.

I think we can put this down to a strange choice by the editor, the concert DVD has Freddie spliced in from later in the song, at 2:53 we can see Freddie above the crowd on the big screen doing what he did at 2:17 but from another angle.

Queen cam is what happened, concert DVD has the Editor splicing in the shot of Freddie he liked conducting the crowd twice.
