lipsynch or use a backup tape?

On the GH2 DVD disc 2, in the "Montreaux Rock Festival", it sounds almost exact to a studio recording.

It could have been edited but you tell me.

Yep, Queen wanted to perform live, but the organisers wouldn't let them. Not quite sure why, but those were the rules. So i think Fred went out of his way to make sure that they couldn't be accused of trying to pretend they were live.

it's interesting footage, but you really miss the fact that it's not live. To see them perform in such a small venue at that point would have been great

It's like when they did the small concerts for the fans at video shoots (like for Champions or Friends Will Be Friends) - wouldn't it be great if there was video footage of that? Queen in the latter years, but live in front of a small audience. Better to have been there, but would be great for a box set (hint hint...)

I wasn't aware that Queen performed a concert for the fans at the shooting of 'Friends Will Be Friends'.

I think Roger sang Radio Ga Ga with back up tape (at least, the percussion part) in the first part of the song, in the last QPR show in Los Angeles. If true, very disappointing.

On the current tour, they use backing tapes for the drum parts on the first part of Radio Ga Ga and on These Are The Days. Can't complain about it - RGG really needs a front-man singing it, rather than from behind the kit; These Are the Days doesn't really suffer from it either.
It's not like they're miming it - it's very obvious that it's playback.

And yes, the Montreux footage is hilarious with Freddie's supposed "miming"!

Yeah, now I know I'm not crazy. Did they do that at the bowl or Wembley or anywhere else?

2x Montreux, San Remo, all TV appearances.

No miming at any TRUE concert, ever.

Yea i noticed that they were "miming" at the Montreaux festival too, cuz on many parts Fred isnt even singing into the microphone at all, and yet theres a sound coming out, and it sounds j/ like from their records, because they never replicated their sound live, because they felt then the point of live performance was indeed pointless because ppl could j/ stay home and listen to the records.
Maybe Freds vocal cord nodules were acting up that day??
Or like someone already said, they Had too... Which is a dumb rule if u ask me, i think Ghandi's saying of "Stupid rules are meant to be broken" should have applied there, but whaddya gonna do?
But it would have been a treat tho in that small venue to have them playing live.

He ain't miming the impromptu. Might be slightly overdubbed though.

Interesting fact though - The Cross (crap band, but hey) were the first group to ever insist on playing live at the Montreaux festival.

I would thing, how pathetic. However, what says it all, is that instead of losing respect for a band, thinking, "What whores! Can't they do it live?". With Queen, it's more like, "What the fuck??? What a bummer, I was hoping it was a new performance."

Is it dissapointment that they can't pull off a live show?? No, it's actually a "What the hell are they doing?? What a waste of an opportunity."

Why the waste? Because, when Queen goes live, it'e an alternate piece of art, comparable to the original.

Why they did it? The only thing I know is that it had nothing to do with their ability to perform live.
