Live Magic


Live Magic was recorded at various live shows during the Magic Tour (1986) and was released on 1 December 1986. However, it was not released in the United States until August 1996. It received strong criticism from fans, due to the heavy editing of many songs. For example, the opera section was removed from "Bohemian Rhapsody", the second verse was removed from "Tie Your Mother Down", and both "Is This the World We Created...?" and "We Are the Champions" were reduced to one verse and chorus. In July 2004, Q magazine listed Live Magic as one of the top five disappointing live albums from usually great acts.


Most of the performances were recorded at Knebworth Park on 9 August 1986, which marks the band's final concert with its original line-up.
