Live from Toronto is a double live album by The Who recorded during the last concert of the It's Hard Tour at the Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto, 17 December 1982.[2] These performances were originally broadcast live on cable TV and FM radio across the U.S. and Canada. It was later released in the early 1980s on VHS video tape.

This 2006 edition of the concert was also released as a DVD. The video on the DVD is essentially the same version broadcast live with some editing and video effects added in post production.

Three songs performed at this concert are not included on the album or the DVD: "Behind Blue Eyes", "Dr. Jimmy" and "Cry If You Want". However, the performances of the two former were released on Who's Last and the performance of "Cry If You Want" from this show was included on the 1997 remastered version of the "It's Hard" CD.
