Bruce Springsteen with The Sessions Band: Live in Dublin is a 2007 video and audio offering that captures in-concert performances from the Bruce Springsteen with The Seeger Sessions Band Tour recorded in November 2006 at The Point Theatre in Dublin, Ireland. The release consists of a concert DVD, a Blu-ray Disc, and separate two-CD audio set. A "special edition" of the CD set includes the concert DVD as well.

The DVD does not capture any one show in full, but rather congeals from three different shows at The Point. Selections include fan favorites from the tour, radical "folk big band" reinterpretations of the Springsteen canon, and rare songs appearing for the first time on any Springsteen release. Contrarily, a few set list regulars from the tour and shows are omitted.

Of note is the dropping of "Seeger" from the band's name for this release, a very belated effort to avoid the mistaken stereotyping the name brought towards the kind of music the outfit was playing.

The DVD debuted at number 1 on the Billboard Video Chart. The CD debuted at number 23 on the Billboard 200, selling 31,000 units, then fell to number 47 in its second week. As of July 11, 2007, it had sold 65,170 copies in the US.
