Wrong section, but anyway, I try to answer your questions.

Brian played it on stage. First time is in 1981, if I remember well. During the Flash-medley.

Also during the Magic tour he played synths, this was during Who Wants To Live Forever.

Brian did it during the same song on The Freddie Mercury Tribute and offcourse during Too Much Love Will Kill You.

John and Brian both 'played' synths during the Montreux Pop Festival in 1984. If that is in interest to you. Brian did the same thing in 1986 during that festival.

Don't ask any studio questions to me. I think Sebastian could answer your questions.

And yes, Freddie did like playing synths. He played it in many songs.

Oh yes, Freddie played synths during that tour. I forgot. No video is known to exist. Maybe private footage, but no info is available.

Sebastian is a member here and knows many things about Queen in the studio. He used to have a site with lots of information.

Dates can be found of that tour on www.queenconcerts.com

No, I don't know his site. As I said, he used to have a very good one, but he later replaced it with a new, less detailed one. A link was always here, but it seems that it has been taken off.

I don't know if his last concert was filmed, but a perfect soundboard recording is there. Although it's in the archives of Queen Productions. A bad version of that show is circulating and has been shared here many times before.

Freddie Mercury was an experienced synth player and programmer as well: the orchestral interludes of "Was It All Worth It" were completely composed, arranged and played by him on a Korg M1 keyboard, as well as the string sections of "Bijou".Roger was also quite good when it came to percussion synthesizers which he used during live shows.John could keep basic drum pattern and, even if he never mastered his keyboard abilities, he would occasionally play synthesizers on his own compositions and often composed at the piano.Brian was often able to create strange and unusual sound effects. For example, he was able to imitate an orchestra in the song "Procession", in "Get Down, Make Love", he was able to create sound effects with his guitar that were so unusual that many thought a synthesizer was being used.
