did freddies stage presence become more..... crazy in parts of their carreer. i think he's much crazier on live at the bowl than wembley. personally i prefer it when he isnt as mad such as wembley and old footage such as now im here gh1.
do you think its a bit overtop sometimes. im not sayin its bad im just sayun i prefered him a bit tamer.

No way!

I much prefer him when he's prancing about (i.e. at the end of Somebody To Love). There's the electrifying showman everyone loves. Or the Live Aid performance/ dance during Radio Ga Ga. That's what I like about Fred.

Wembley 86, he's chubby, slow moving not dancing about, not singing half as well as he used to, the only reason Wembley 86 is so revered is because it's the best footage (camera wise) of Queen.

My two cents worth.

I love the We Will Rock You dvd in Montreal. Freddie is so graceful, flexible, slinky, silky. That part (I think it is at the beginning of Dragon Attack) where he starts off on the right side of the stage and takes those long, graceful, slinky exaggerated steps over to the left side. Oh, MY! I think it is great fun to watch how his poncing-about changed throughout the years. Live in Budapest makes me laugh every time because he is so delightfully dramatic.


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.

He tended to go a bit nuts during the Crazy tour in '79, especially during the song Sheer Heart Attack, where he's been see to bite the Red Special while Brians trying to play, or the famous clip of him pushing over the stack of amps and mutilating his mic stand, etc.


Thank you, God bless you, sweet dreams you lot of tarts, Good-bye!

I don't agree with that summation at all. He had a much bigger stage to cover and did it extremely well for a 40 year-old man with AIDS. At Wembley he was physically very commanding.

I think this is a bit harsh....

He's chubby?
Answer: While he certainly wasn't "built" like everyone here seems to think.... Freddie may have been 160lbs at Wembley, I don't think thats chubby.

The power he had on Lap of the Gods, and Parts of World We Created were some of his highest decibels ever recorded...at Wembley.

Slow moving? is this when he ran up and down the stairs on the 37th or 38th time?

Finally... in 1986 Freddie was HIV positive, but not full blown AIDS.... so he had no more "AIDS" symptoms then you or I.

I dont think he had any worse a voice at wembley, in the lap of the gods was fabtastic, and my GOD he went so so so high on impromtu, so nothing wrong with his voice. It was just nearing the end of the tour, and the only reason his voice SEEMED more powerful at Milton Keynes 82 was because it was the begining of the tour.

Milton keynes was the last show from the european leg oft the tour. he had already performed lots of oncredible shows by then and was still in great shape. His voice was fantastic ,better than at wembley. I just think he wasn't in topshape at wembley but he was fantastic in budapest so maybe it was just the big stage.
