In the video, Brian sings the beginning.
At Wembley, 86', Freddie does.
Why?

There is a version of who wants to live forever with full Freddie vocals.
Freddie does for the whole tour...whats he gonna do if he cant sing that part? Brain gets to sing in hello mary lou, thats good enough =-)

I just got the Live At Wembley DVD myself (for less than $10 at that!) and I never realized it was Brian on synth there! Guess I figured it was Spike....cool though!

Well, probably as Serry said, it's because Brian was busy with the synths...
Sing and play isn't very easy (but it's a bad argument, Bri sings in some others songs when playing)

Brian sung Too Much Love Will Kill You on Freddie's Tribute and as everyone can see it was hard to him sometimes to sing and look at keys at same time... He usually sing while playing guitar, so if Freddie could sing, why not let him do it?

I noticed that on the Highlander, that when you hear Who Wants 2 Live Forever, Freddie does all the vocals there too. I wonder why they didn't just use the original....


But that is the orginal, darling!


Or am I wrong?

I think Freddie just wanted to have a go at the low notes when they were touring the song. I prefer Brian singing it because I feel that Freddie struggles on some of the low notes.
