At 2:59-3:01 doesn't it look like one of the band members just jumped off the stage? Maybe this really happened?

It was Freddie, just jumping offstage to see if he could grow a moustache in time for jumping back on.

Really though, with that being such a bad quality clip - how did you manage to watch it far enough to notice that?


It ain't about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit: how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!

I don't remember. I probably clicked on a random spot of the video and it went to it.

I always thought it's a fan who managed to get on the stage for a few seconds

You're correct Pittrek! I noticed this a few weeks back. VERY rare to see any fans jumping up on a Queen stage.

Since there's no sound, don't know the song.  If it was Now I'm Here, Freddie used to "appear" under a spotlight on the "Now I'm here" bit at the start of the song stage right, and seconds later for "Now I'm there" he'd be stage left under a spotlight.  As talented as he was, he couldn't run across a dark stage in no time flat and hit his mark perfectly posed, so he had one of the roadies or his handler stand stage left dressed as Freddie.  Maybe that's who it was jumping from the stage when full lights came on?

Probably a fan who somehow managed to get on stage. Or else a roadie, who didn't realize he should've been offstage at that point.

It's very strange I agree. It seems like it's Freddie but at the same time being a few minutes later (although it's cut and it's like a few seconds later) Freddie's in different dress. Really hard to say.

Today I watched to this footage on my computer in good quality and now I'm sure it's not Freddie, Brian, Roger and John at all. It's someone from audience members, he's in black T-shirt and some trousers, really audience member.
