Can anyone tell me where each of the performances from Live Magic are from?  I read somewhere that most were from the Knebworth show.  Is that correct?  Any info would be appreciated.

Indeed, it's mostly from Knebworth, but there are three other shows in the mix -

A Kind of Magic - Budapest 7-27-86
Under Pressure - Budapest 7-27-86
Is This the World We Created - Wembley 7-11-86
Hammer To Fall - Wembley 7-12-86

The two Budapest tracks are notably different mixes from the VHS release.

I always thinked that Live Magic sounds waaaay better than Live At Wembley, but the cut the songs, too bad.

The archivist said Queen record also the Slane, Newcastle and Manchester shows. Is that correct? Why didn't include it in Live Magic?

"Is This The World We Created.....?" on Live Magic is great!

Does anybody know which concert it's from?
Thanks!

I do remember seeing a recording truck at Slane.  I don't know what happened to the recording.

It's in the archives.  If I recall correctly, I do believe Slane was used for overdubs on Wembley.

A Kind of Magic from Budapest is the best live version of that song!

And the Live Magic mix is the best! IMO it's worth getting Live Magic just for that one :)

I agree. The sound is good but cutting the songs is unforgivable.

The Knebworth mixes on Live Magic sound great - especially the drums. I'd love to see a full Knebworth CD released (though not at the expense of Hammersmith 79, Earls Court, Houston etc!!)

Is this year the year we'll finally get Knebworth on CD?

I honestly hope not. Hyde Park and hopefully more goods from 1976 instead.

Just wanna drop my 2 cents here:
Before, I thought I wanted to see Knebworth on CD, but now I feel like they wasted the opportunity back in '12 when Hungarian Rhapsody came out. They could have released a Super Deluxe edition of that album, including the Budapest gig and Knebworth in four discs, like how Live At The Rainbow has two concerts. As it stands, i'm already happy with pittrek's merge of Knebworth, and will be looking forward to Hyde Park being released.
