Brian May Live At The Brixton Academy was Recorded live at the Brixton Academy, London on 15th June 1993.

Recommended Songs: Back To The Light, Since You’ve Been Gone, Last Horizon … there’s not a bad track on the album!


This was apparently only a spur of the moment recording, but the resulting album is excellent. It shows Brian May doing what he does best. This live recording is very good, with a nice balance between the artist and the audience reaction.

The songs on the album are excellent, and it reflects Queen’s style of a concert, huge introduction, slow down slightly in the middle and then a huge climax to finish the show.
This is an album which I really enjoy listening to, especially the first 4 tracks which almost blend into one. If you like Brian May, and if you like the Queen tracks which he plays (see setlist on this page), then you will really enjoy this album.

Review Rating : 10

One song from this concert, namely, “God (the dream is over)” was lost and could not be included on the CD due to copyright issues.
