Live at Luna Park is a live album/video by American progressive metal/rock band Dream Theater, released on November 5, 2013 through Eagle Rock Entertainment. The concert film was produced by Over The Edge Productions[4] and directed by Mike Leonard.[5] The album is available on 2DVD, Blu-ray, Digital Video, 2DVD/3CD, Blu-ray/3CD, and a Deluxe Edition Box Set with a 40-page book including a Blu-ray, 2DVDs and 3CDs. The album is also available on iTunes.[6]

The album was recorded over two nights at Luna Park Stadium in Buenos Aires. The DVD-Blu-ray will also feature a documentary as well as Behind The Scenes-footage. It is also the first Dream Theater live recording to feature drummer Mike Mangini, following Mike Portnoy's departure in 2010.[7]
