Live at Luna Park is the 7th live album and video by American progressive metal band Dream Theater, released on November 5, 2013 through Eagle Rock Entertainment. The concert film was produced by Over The Edge Productions[4] and directed by Mike Leonard.[5] The album is available as a two-disc DVD, single-disc Blu-ray, 2DVD/3CD, Blu-ray/3CD, and a deluxe edition box set including all three formats with a 40-page book. Both the album and video are also available as digital downloads.[6]

The album was recorded over two nights at Luna Park Stadium in Buenos Aires in August 2012. It is Dream Theater's first live recording to feature drummer Mike Mangini, following Mike Portnoy's departure in 2010.[7] At almost 189 minutes, it is Dream Theater's longest album.
