I've heard that the first half of the Phantom Overture was entriely prerecorded for safety and consistency reasons regarding the moving chandelier, and also that Webber loved the sound of the original title song and overture that they went into the stage show mostly unchanged from the development period of the show, which included the Steve Harley music video. I've also heard that the creation of the new (post 2008) tracks in Las Vegas and London was painful and went through several revisions with Webber storming out of the theatre when he was unhappy. I can't verify any of this as fact, however. Phantom has live music playing for the vast majority of the show, so the musicians are certainly earning those paychecks even if some of what you hear isn't live.
