Live at the London Troxy is a live album by New Order, recorded on 10 December 2011 at The Troxy in London. The concert was released in both a 2-CD set and a 320kbit/s MP3 download. Priced at £10.99, the download was made available on the 21 December 2011, while the 2-CD set, priced at £17.99 shipped the first week of January.[2]

This release, the first since the band decided to reunite with its new lineup—featuring keyboardist Gillian Gilbert, with Tom Chapman replacing former bassist Peter Hook—and the first show in London in over five years,[3] features the entire performance from the sold-out show.[4] During their 90 minute set, New Order performed songs spanning 25 years of hits and classic songs, alongside songs not played live since the 1980s ("586", "Age of Consent", "Elegia", "1963"),[5] and culminating with a rendition of their former incarnation Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart".
