I think he's talking about the "repeat after me" segments in Queen's live shows, Wembley being a good example.
Not sure if it's "Day-O" rather than just vowels.

He usually did it before under pressure, most of the time with a glass of beer. Most notably wembley (god that was like ten minutes!) and live aid (when he threw beer at the crowd.) that and he did a bit of that during AOBTD at wembley (no beer).

the_hero is correct, though I guess Freddie sung Day-O during The Works Tour '85 also.

Is it true that Freddie often forgot the words to the Day-O song and had to have it written on the palms of his hands?

fatty.

I always loved when Freddie did the DAY-O thing.

Live Aid & Wembley were classics!

Like at Wembley when he sings so high he says to the audience "I can't go any higher, let's go down a little".

But when he sings as high as he can, and Holds the note for quite some time, (which is amazing!)...

...Roger kids around with Freddie & the crowd and does a little drum end roll after Freddie ends the note! Adorable.

Heard that he did it before UP on the Magic tour, as to get his voice going for that song.
In Paris, on the Magic tour, he did it 3 times different times.

I have to look for the thread, but a couple months back I asked about Freddie throwing berr, and no-one corrected me to say it was water, they all said it was beer.

I have even read where he poured champagne on an audience at Madison Square Garden. Hey, at least it's the good stuff.

Let me search for that thread. It won't come up cuz I just searched...but I remember this.

that's nice.. throwing alcohol in someone's eyes



Here is MY thread that I started a few months back asking why in daylights, WHY Freddie threw beer/water at the audience.

http://queenzone.com/queenzone/forumnew/forum_topic_view.aspx?Q=523842

Anyhow...I remember saying in that thread...that in the gazillion concerts I have been to by gazillion artists, I have never seen a band/artist throw or pour beer, water, whatever on the audience.

Everyone on that thread told me it "was cool", that Freddie did that, but personally, I would NOT like that at all.

I don't care if it's Freddie doing the beer/water throwing/pouring or not. I do NOT find that all "Show Biz", and if an artist did that to me, (unless it was the coemdian Gallagher...where that IS part of his act), I would walk out.

But that's just me.

Weren't you being sarcastic here..meaning you would not like it either?

I can say almost every local band I've seen in a bar has had beer thrown on them by the crowd...and like I said..even THE BAND'S hate it.
