* Note: Only representative works on each day (including titles out of print).

More than 26 performances. As you can see, most of the shows have recorded their name recordings, and we have been collecting the best masters in one day. Under such circumstances, the Leiden performance of this work is the second performance in the early and early stages. Three concerts were held at the same venue, which was the first day of the concert.

This work that recorded such a show is a clear and realistic audience recording. Above all, the full show experience is amazing. Some recordings are known on this day, and “Tie Your Mother Down” is missing or there are things that encores are not recorded, but this work is a complete recording and the sound is “ What is known as the "best". It is undeniable that there is some distance, but the air is clear whether the master freshness is good, the stability without distortion and twisting is wonderful, and the performance and singing voice jump straight. The largest scale tour in QUEEN history has just begun, and Freddie is on fire.
Furthermore, the point of this work is the heat of the audience. Although it is not a type that suffers from upcoming screams, it has picked up the enthusiasm of the field widely and its excitement is amazing. Needless to mention Wembley Stadium, Freddie of “THE MAGIC TOUR” had a charismatic nature, but the way to manipulate the large audience freely was overwhelmed. The whole story is wonderful, but the most symbolic is after “Tie Your Mother Down”. The song is just exciting, but it is beaten by a MC that can be followed, and a soccer hymn “Ore! Ooore !!” appears in the hall. That's what makes “THE MAGIC TOUR” one of the most famous scenes of “Tavaszi Szel Vizet Araszt” in Budapest.

Of course, it doesn't end just in the beginning. The show that burned at a stroke was beaten by a great Freddie and excited, and ran to the highlight. And the end point is also a big point. In this tour, the new song “Friends Will Be Friends” is sandwiched between “We Will Rock You” and “We Are The Champions”. Moreover, unlike the later show, it is played in the full version for about 4 minutes. Although the short version is tightened from the fact that it is changed shortly, this long performance is only Leiden 2 performance. You can experience such a valuable version in the field with great sound. And a huge spectacle of “We Are The Champions” and “God Save The Queen” welcomed to the place where everyone was excited about “Friends Will Be Friends”. What a touching thing ...

Not only the largest scale, but also the glory “THE MAGIC TOUR”, which has been performing more than usual in various places. It is a live album that allows you to experience the start dash in the beginning of the field. This is a masterpiece that stands in the midst of not only soccer hymns and extremely rare “Friends Will Be Friends”, but also a performance where both Freddy and the venue burn from the beginning to the ending. 1 performance 1 performance is different, and “THE MAGIC TOUR” is the only place of glory to enjoy. That's why audience recording is irresistible ... one that doesn't stop with such a feeling. Please enjoy it carefully.
