Grace Under Pressure Tour is a live album by Canadian progressive rock band Rush, originally released on VHS and LaserDisc in 1986. It was then remastered in surround sound (5.1) on a video DVD, and on an audio CD, for the 2006 Rush Replay X 3 DVD box set.

In addition to the three remastered concert DVDs of Rush Replay X 3, that box set contains a bonus audio disk. It is an audio CD version of the "Grace Under Pressure Tour" video DVD.

The 2006 initial release of Rush Replay X 3 was a limited edition release sold by Best Buy only. That 'Best Buy only' audio CD of "Grace Under Pressure Tour" also contains four bonus tracks: "Limelight" and "Closer to the Heart" from the Exit...Stage Left video, and "The Spirit of Radio" and "Tom Sawyer" from the A Show of Hands video.

The Grace Under Pressure Tour CD received a standalone release on August 11, 2009. It features the same cover art as Grace Under Pressure, with "1984 Tour" written in the bottom left hand corner. Like the DVD, it includes a reproduction of the original tour book.
