Live at Hollywood High (officially released as Live at Hollywood High/The Costello Show Vol. 2) is a recording by Elvis Costello and the Attractions from a 1978 concert at Hollywood High School in Los Angeles, California. Three songs from the concert were originally included as a bonus 7" vinyl EP that sold with initial pressings of the Armed Forces album in 1979. A 2002 re-issue of Armed Forces added six tracks to the three from the EP (for a total of nine tracks) and placed them in proper running order. In 2010, the Hip-O Select label released a full version of Live at Hollywood High with all 20 tracks from the concert on one CD.
This release followed three earlier concert releases from Elvis Costello, including:
- Nashville Rooms (London, England), recorded on 7 August 1977, which was included as a bonus CD on the 2007 deluxe edition of My Aim Is True (1977).
- Warner Theatre (Washington, DC), recorded on 28 February 1978, which was included on the deluxe edition of This Year's Model (1978).
- El Mocambo (Toronto, Ontario), recorded on 6 March 1978, which was released by CBS as a promotional LP in Canada and re-released in 1993 as one of four CD's on the 2½ Years box set. It was later given a stand alone release as The Costello Show: Live at the El Mocambo in 2009. The original vinyl LP and CD re-releases of this concert all contain the same songs.
