Live at River Plate is a live album by Australian hard rock band AC/DC. It was released on 19 November 2012.[2]

The album was recorded during AC/DC's Black Ice World Tour at River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires on 4 December 2009. Video footage from the same concert was previously released officially on DVD and Blu-ray in May 2011.

With the release of the album in the UK, the top ten of the UK Rock & Metal Singles chart was composed of all AC/DC songs, with "Back in Black", "Highway to Hell", "You Shook Me All Night Long", "Thunderstruck", "Whole Lotta Rosie", "Shoot to Thrill", "Hells Bells", "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)", "For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)", and "T.N.T.", all charting within the top ten in corresponding order. However, several songs in the chart were actually the studio versions.[3] This was also a result of all of AC/DC's albums being re-released on iTunes at the time of Live at River Plate's release.[4]
