Live at Wembley Stadium is a live video by the Foo Fighters, released on August 22, 2008, in Ireland and August 25, 2008, in the UK on DVD. It was also released in Australia on August 30, New Zealand on September 1, and Germany, Austria and Switzerland on September 5. It was released in the United States on November 18, 2008.

It was filmed during the band's two sold out shows at Wembley Stadium on Friday June 6 and Saturday June 7, 2008. The video features a combination of footage from both nights, including the second night's collaboration with special guests, Led Zeppelin members John Paul Jones (bass guitar) and Jimmy Page (guitar).

The video was also broadcast via satellite across the UK at Vue Cinemas on June 24, 2008. The video was shown in high definition with 5.1 surround sound, and was the same cut as the video release.

The release has been certified 3 times platinum by the Australian Recording Industry Association[1] and gold by the Recording Industry Association of New Zealand.[2]

The image on the artwork was shot by the aerial camera above the crowd on Friday 6 June.

Track listing and omitted songs[edit]

Some songs are taken from Friday's performance and some from Saturday's. This is identifiable in two ways. One is the underwear Grohl is wearing (Red on Friday, White on Saturday) which can be seen at points in the video, and secondly any shots containing rainfall are from Saturday, as it did not rain during Friday's performance.
