Snakes & Arrows Live is a live double CD and DVD by Canadian band Rush. The CD was released on April 14, 2008 in the UK and on April 15, 2008 around the world. It was also released on DVD and Blu-ray on November 24, 2008.[5] The material was taken from two performances during the first leg of the Snakes & Arrows Tour, recorded at the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam, Netherlands on October 16 and 17, 2007. This is the first of the band's live albums since the Grace Under Pressure Tour to highlight one studio work specifically, with nine of the 27 tracks drawn from Snakes & Arrows.

The DVD was compiled from the two Rotterdam performances described above, and also includes supplemental material from the second leg of the tour, recorded at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park in Alpharetta, Georgia (metro Atlanta) on July 22, 2008. While the DVD portion is a three-disc set, the Blu-ray version of Snakes & Arrows Live is a single disc. The third DVD includes four songs that were played during the 2008 leg of the tour, replacing "Entre Nous," "Secret Touch," "Circumstances," and "Distant Early Warning" in the set list.
