9012Live is the video release of a concert by the progressive rock group Yes recorded live at Northlands Coliseum in Edmonton, Canada, on September 28 and 29, 1984. It mostly features material from the band's reunion album 90125, which was a major success for the band. The 1984–1985 tour was the band's first since reuniting after a three-year breakup. In addition, it also marked the first Yes tour to feature founding keyboardist Tony Kaye since his departure 13 years earlier in 1971.

The video was filmed and directed by Steven Soderbergh, who would go on to direct such movies as Traffic and Erin Brockovich.

9012Live was originally released on VHS in November 1985 as the "companion video" to the Yes album entitled 9012Live: The Solos, also released in November 1985.

9012Live was re-released on DVD in 2006 with previously unseen material and a director's cut and with the ability to turn off the 1950s stock footage. This version (from Image Entertainment) contains a stereo audio mix from the original 1" video master (used to make the VHS tape) as the original multi-track audio tapes were lost. A previous unofficial DVD version from Brazil exists and it is noticeable for having a mono soundtrack instead of the stereo soundtrack.
