Pete Townshend Live: A Benefit for Maryville Academy (Platinum 9555) is a 1998 live album by English rock musician Pete Townshend, member of The Who, recorded at the House of Blues in Chicago. It was produced by multi-instrumentalist Jon Carin, who gives this album a special feel with the use of programmed drums and samples. Covers many Who songs and some solo material. A "bonus CD" features 2 tracks with Eddie Vedder, Pearl Jam's vocalist.

It was released by Platinum Entertainment, licensed by The Who's charity, Double O Promotions Limited and all artist royalties benefit the Roman Catholic Chicago-based institution Maryville Academy, "a leader in the treatment of physically, sexually, and emotional abused children. It provides a safe, secure, and stable environment where these youngsters can regain the hope they lost so long ago and begin the healing process".
