Live 1983–1989 is a collection of live performances by British pop duo Eurythmics, recorded throughout the 1980s, encompassing the years of their greatest commercial success.

The songs are presented chronologically across two discs, with most of the performances recorded close to the time of the original studio recording. For example, the performances of "Love Is a Stranger" and "Who's That Girl?", both from 1983 albums, are drawn from 1983 concerts and sound very similar to the studio versions.
