Live at Hammersmith Odeon is a live Black Sabbath album recorded at three concerts between 31 December 1981 and 2 January 1982, during the Mob Rules tour. It was released on 1 May 2007 in a limited edition of 5000, which sold out immediately.

The songs "Country Girl" and "Slipping Away" make their debut on official live releases.

The CD was released only as a digipak, featuring a mini reproduction of a tour programme. Although there is a UK tour programme for the Mob Rules dates, the one included with this release is actually that for the January 1981 UK dates, which were part of the Heaven and Hell tour. The cover photo is also from said tour.

Though the limited run of the album is no longer on sale, the 2010 two disc Deluxe Edition of Mob Rules includes the Live at Hammersmith Odeon on its second disc.
