Cross Purposes Live is a boxed set released by the British heavy metal band Black Sabbath in 4 April 1995. The set comprised a live album on CD and a VHS tape of a concert recorded at the Hammersmith Apollo in London on Wednesday 13 April 1994. It is Black Sabbath's only live album with singer Tony Martin. The CD was housed within an oversized videotape case but had its own inserts and jewel case.

The song "Children of the Sea" was also played at the concert, between "Children of the Grave" and "I Witness" in the running order, but is not featured in the official release for reasons unclear. Bobby Rondinelli's drum solo also has a minute edited out.

Both the original CD and VHS tape are out of print, but an hour long unlicensed DVD was released with nine of the sixteen original video tracks. This release includes the promo videoclip of "Feels Good to Me", from the album Tyr (1990).
