AC/DC Live is the second live album by Australian hard rock band AC/DC, released on 27 October 1992.

It was released both as a single album and as a double album on LP and CD known as AC/DC Live: 2 CD Collector's Edition. The album is supported by a video, AC/DC: Live at Donington.[1] The double album AC/DC Live: 2 CD Collector's Edition was released a month after the single-disc version, in a slipcased two-disc "book" (similar in shape to old CD longboxes) and containing an AC/DC dollar note. Both editions of the album were re-released in 2003 as part of the AC/DC Remasters series. The recordings on this live album are taken from several shows from AC/DC's 1991 The Razors Edge tour: Dublin, Auburn Hills (Detroit), Glasgow, Edmonton, Paris, Germany and the Donington and Moscow "Monsters of Rock" shows. Barry Weber of AllMusic writes: "All too often, a live album is a cheaply made, rushed recording that only serves as a testament to a band's decline. AC/DC Live, however, shows what makes this band different from their peers - here they are still entirely capable of pulling off a great live show. This ranks among the best live metal albums of the '90s."
