House of Yes: Live from House of Blues is a double live CD by progressive rock band Yes. It was also released as a triple album on vinyl in a single sleeve. The album was recorded on Halloween night in 1999 at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas,[3] during touring obligations for the band's studio album, The Ladder.

Guitarist Billy Sherwood had already left Yes by the time House of Yes: Live from House of Blues was released in September 2000, and keyboardist Igor Khoroshev was fired later that year after a controversy involving backstage sexual harassment at Nissan Pavilion near Washington, D.C., making House of Yes the last Yes release with him and the last release with Sherwood until Topographic Drama – Live Across America in 2017. Following these departures, Yes had reverted to the four core members of Jon Anderson, Chris Squire, Steve Howe and Alan White.

House of Yes: Live from House of Blues was also released as a DVD and both formats of the project were generally well-received critically and by Yes's legions of fans. It did, however, omit the footage of Yes playing "Close to the Edge" and "Hearts" at the show.
