Remember those fond memories in the year of 1986, Queen at Wembly!
They were vocally unable to sing the climax in Bo' Rhap and so left stage for a brief moment with the original bo rhap video...

Does anyone know if queen ever managed to perform it fully, even the climaxed part? I've never seen them do it all the way through, live.
If they have, then what live show was it? I would love to watch how they managed!

Merry Christmas to you all, my dears!
Thanks!

It is scientificly and physically impossible to sing that part live.

Actually, the backing band did it on RockStar INXS. Granted, it wasn't nearly as grandiose as the original, but it was quite impressive given the magnitude of the task and the limited number of available singers.

Yeah, at FMTC they had backing singers to do the climax parts like in Somdebody to love with George Michael.

Yes, they did. Brian and Roger + WWRY cast on Her Majesty's Jubilee concert in 2002. They've played middle part.

I agree. The Wembley '86 version was magnificent. The heavy rock section had so much power- it sounded much better with Fred's throatier voice. Great stuff.
