Live in Hyde Park is a live album released by the Red Hot Chili Peppers recorded over three record-breaking nights at Hyde Park, in London on June 19, 20 and 25, 2004 during the band's Roll On The Red tour. These three concerts became the highest grossing concerts at a single venue in history. A double album compiled from these three shows went straight to No. 1 in the UK and stayed there for a total of two weeks, selling about over 120,000 copies.[4]

Of the eight studio albums by the Red Hot Chili Peppers that were released prior to Live in Hyde Park, only three are actually represented in this album's set list - Blood Sugar Sex Magik, Californication and By the Way (the single "Fortune Faded", however, was featured solely on the band's Greatest Hits compilation). "Under the Bridge" and "Give It Away" were the only songs from Blood Sugar Sex Magik. The songs "Leverage of Space" and "Rolling Sly Stone" are exclusive to this collection.

The song "Mini-Epic (Kill For Your Country) " which was performed, and originally planned for this release, did not make it into the CD versions, probably[citation needed] due to delicate issues concerning the theme of the song. However, it can be found on most video recordings displaying the concerts.

This album is now out of print, but turns up second-hand regularly[citation needed] due to high sales at the time of its release.
