House of Yes: Live from House of Blues is a double live CD by progressive rock band Yes. The album was recorded on Halloween night in 1999 at the House of Blues in Las Vegas, Nevada, during touring obligations for the band's studio album, The Ladder. Guitarist Billy Sherwood had already left Yes by the time House of Yes: Live from House of Blues was released in September 2000, and keyboardist Igor Khoroshev was fired later that year after a controversy involving backstage sexual harassment at Nissan Pavilion near Washington, D.C., making of House of Yes the last Yes release with any of them. Following these departures, Yes had reverted to the four core members of Jon Anderson, Chris Squire, Steve Howe and Alan White.

House of Yes: Live from House of Blues was also released as a DVD and both formats of the project were generally well-received critically and by Yes's legions of fans. It did, however, omit the footage of Yes playing "Close to the Edge" and "Hearts" at the show.
