Live in Europe is the second live album by the progressive rock supergroup Transatlantic. Released in 2003, it documents the November 12, 2001 show by the band at the 013 Club, Tilburg, Netherlands. The show was also filmed and released on DVD with a bonus disc featuring additional performances and documentary footage. The show was part of the tour to support the band's second studio album, Bridge Across Forever.

In keeping with the tradition of covering a classic progressive rock epic on each release, Live In Europe features the band running through The Beatles' Abbey Road medley as part of the intentionally Beatle-esque "Suite Charlotte Pike." Rather than being a straight cover version, each section of "Suite Charlotte Pike" is juxtaposed with a section of the Abbey Road medley.

The album is typical of Transatlantic's style, in that it is longer than two hours, yet consists of only six tracks.

Daniel Gildenlöw of Pain of Salvation makes a guest appearance, playing additional keyboards, guitars, percussion, and vocals throughout the show.
