Simon & Garfunkel's Old Friends: Live On Stage is the third live album and documentary from their highly successful "Old Friends" reunion concert tour of 2003, with The Everly Brothers as special guests. Both the CD and DVD were released in December 2004.

The CD and DVD were taken from a series of shows at New York's Madison Square Garden in early December 2003.

Both the DVD and the double CD set include a new studio song, "Citizen of the Planet", written by Paul Simon in the 1980s and recently completed with Art Garfunkel. The DVD contains two Simon & Garfunkel songs that were omitted from the double CD set: "Keep the Customer Satisfied" and "The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)". There are also two additional songs performed by The Everly Brothers, which are not included on the CD. The DVD includes a series of clips from Simon & Garfunkel's rarely seen 1969 television special Songs of America as part of its extra features.

Both the CD and DVD are available separately and together as a package.
