Wings of Heaven Live is a live album by the English rock band Magnum, released in 2008 by SPV.

The album was recorded on the 20th anniversary tour of Magnum's Wings of Heaven album. The original album was released in 1988 and reached the Top 5 in the UK album charts achieving Silver status in the UK[2] for over 200,000 sales. The album was recorded on the Wings of Heaven Live UK tour, 10 November 2007 — 18 November 2007. The song "Different Worlds" was performed live for the very first time during this tour, and was never played by the band on the original Wings of Heaven tour in 1988.

The artwork was illustrated by Rodney Matthews following his sleeve design for Magnum's previous album Princess Alice and the Broken Arrow.

The album is dedicated to Kex Gorin, Magnum's original drummer, who died on 21 December 2007.
