The Magic Tour was Queen's final tour with their lead singer Freddie Mercury and their bass guitarist John Deacon, with 26 concert dates in Europe in 1986. The band would not tour again until 19 years later, when the Queen + Paul Rodgers Tour began in 2005, after the death of Mercury on 24 November 1991, and the retirement of Deacon in 1997. The Magic Tour supported the band's album A Kind of Magic.

Queen flew into the park on a helicopter during Quo's set, as seen in pics 2-4. As reported by many audience members, Big Country played a great set. By the fourth encore number, however, an angry-looking Harvey Goldsmith repeatedly pointed at his wrist at the side of the stage. Around this point, someone in the audience threw a two-litre bottle (containing a liquid which probably doesn't need to be named) at the singer, Stuart Adamson, which he successfully dodged.

Live Magic is a live album by British rock band Queen. It was recorded at various live shows during The Magic Tour and was released on 1 December 1986. However, it was not released in the United States until August 1996.

Recorded at Wembley Stadium and Knebworth Park, England and Nepstadium, Budapest, Hungary. Recorded on the Manor Mobile, the Rolling Stones Mobile and the Power Sound Mobile. Mixed at the Townhouse Studios. Mastered at the Townhouse Studios. Published by: Tracks A1, A2, A4, A5, B1, B2, B4 to B8: Queen Music Lt. EMI Music Publishing Ltd. Track A3, B3, B9: B. Feldman & Co. Ltd. Track A5: Queen Music Lt. - Bewlay Bros.

As Queen's second live album, Live Magic might appear to be a bit unnecessary, but a closer look reveals that it's a better record than the previous Live Killers. While the set list might rely a bit too heavily on mediocre mid-'80s material for some tastes, the band is tight and professional, and Mercury has an undeniable hold over the crowd.

Audio: Magic At Knebworth LP (megaupload and torrent). Video: best sources merge. little did we know that it was Queen's last concert with Freddie. since January 1983, but chose to time my trip back with Knebworth. I had seen Led Zep in 1977 and Genesis in 1978 at the same venue (IIRC) and fancied Queen in a big field. I'd seen them at Stafford Bingley Hall in 1977 (again IIRC - this is all from memory, as I wake up in Japan and stumble across this amazing site). Stafford Bingley Hall was amazing.

In true bombastic style, Queen arrived at Knebworth Park by helicopter. They played a two hour set which was greeted by a rapturous response from the audience. As I mentioned in my introduction, nobody knew that this would be Freddie Mercury’s final performance with Queen at the time (according to Mercury’s partner, he wasn’t diagnosed as HIV positive until the following year, and he didn’t announce publicly that he was ill with AIDS until the day before his death in 1991). The audio was captured in high quality, however, and much of it used in the. Queen: Live Magic album.

Last concert with Freddie Mercury.. Sound of the recording is only VG.

I just got a copy and didn’t think the overall sound was that bad actually. Still an awesome double lp to have being their last true Queen concert.

you mean this specific bootleg? VG is ok, istn't it?
