In the Flesh – Live is a two-disc live album that captures performances from Roger Waters' three-year In the Flesh tour. It's also considered as the tour of the album "Amused to Death", because it's the first time he plays songs from that album.


"My view is that I've been involved in two absolutely classic albums – The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall," Waters told Classic Rock. "And if you haven't got Amused to Death, you haven't got the full set. So this album – the live one, which pulls together songs from all three albums – hopefully redresses the balance."[citation needed] The album features selected songs from a number of Pink Floyd albums, Waters solo efforts and a new song "Each Small Candle".


A DVD of the same title was also produced, and the two were released in a new package in 2006. A SACD featuring both stereo and 5.1 mixes was also released.

The material for the DVD was taken from a 27 June 2000 performance at the Rose Garden Arena in Portland, Oregon, while the double CD contains various recordings drawn from four performances in Phoenix, AZ; Las Vegas, NV; Irvine, CA and Portland, OR.
