Live in Europe is the first live album by American band Creedence Clearwater Revival, released in 1973 documenting the Mardi Gras tour. The album is notable because it was performed as a trio following Tom Fogerty's departure. The record was released despite John Fogerty's strong objections.[1][2][3][4][5][6]

Many fans claim that the album was not an actual live recording in front of an audience, and that it was a tour rehearsal tape with audience cheers mixed in later (this is notable during the opening and first verse of "Proud Mary").
