Touring the Angel: Live in Milan is a video release by Depeche Mode, featuring an entire concert from their 2005/2006 Touring the Angel tour, filmed in Milan, Italy. It was directed and filmed by Blue Leach on 18 and 19 February at the Fila Forum in Assago near Milan, Italy, and was released on 25 September 2006.[1]

It was also released in a special edition 3-disc set. The first disc features the full concert & extra songs (that were played on the other Milan show), while the second disc contains documentaries on the movie, interviews with the band, Anton Corbijn (who designed the stage), extra songs (that were played on the other Milan show), tour projections, and more. Finally, the third disc is an audio CD containing every song from Playing the Angel that was played at the two shows. In the United States the three-disc set is packaged in a digipak and the standard two-disc set, containing only the two DVDs, is in a keep case.

One day before its American release, 25 September, the movie was screened for a one-time only show, which also included the documentary video, in various United States theatres.
