Live at Hammersmith Odeon is a 1994 live album by the British singer Kate Bush. It is a re-release of a video recording of the 1979 The Tour of Life, first released on home video in 1981, complete with a CD version of the video soundtrack.[1]

The video and CD contain twelve songs from the tour, consisting mainly of songs from The Kick Inside and Lionheart with a new song "Violin"; which would subsequently appear on Bush's third studio album Never for Ever in 1980.

In September 1979, Bush released On Stage, an EP of four tracks recorded at the final dates of her only tour. It reached No. 10 in the UK singles chart.[2] The EP includes a performance of "L'Amour Looks Something Like You" which was not included in the abridged live album.
