Live at Budokan is a live recording released by progressive metal/rock band Dream Theater on October 5, 2004, available on either 3 CDs, 2 DVDs, or 1 Blu-ray Disc. It was recorded at the Nippon Budokan Hall on April 26, 2004 in Tokyo, Japan.

Due to time constraints, the songs "The Great Debate", "Under a Glass Moon" and "Caught in a Web", which included an extended drum solo, were removed from the setlist at the last minute. On the DVD, during the credits, the song "Vacant" is played in the background, without Labrie's vocals.

According to the Commentary Track on their "When Dream And Day Reunite" Official Bootleg Live DVD during the first few minutes of the live concert Jordan Rudess had an equipment malfunction that played either the incorrect sound, no sound at all, or random notes 1/2-step upward in pitch. Nevertheless, Rudess mimed playing the correct parts as he realized they would have to be re-recorded in during Post-Production.

The live DVD was re-released on Blu-ray, on October 18, 2011.
