Piano sound in famous performances?!

I wasn’t sure which subforum to post this on but this seemed the most suitable. I’ve been stumped for the past couple weeks. I watched a video a couple months ago of Freddy Mercury playing piano at Live Aid in the 80s and wondered why his acoustic piano sounded like a Yamaha CP-80 electric grand piano. You can see behind him on the stage there is a man hidden by some boxes playing a cp80 in some shots. Why would they do this? I also recently watched a video of Elton John playing Bennie and the Jets live and although his piano looks acoustic, it sounds exactly like a cp80!! Although in this video it is very clear that he is the one playing the music.
Any experts have an explanation?
