Peacetour is a live concert video by the British pop/rock duo Eurythmics released on 20 June 2000 on VHS and DVD. It is a recording of the band's concert at London Docklands Arena on 6 December 1999, which was the final show of their 24-date world "Peace Tour". All profits from the tour were donated to Amnesty International and Greenpeace.

The live concert features a selection of hits from Eurythmics' successful 1980s period, and several newer tracks from the band's comeback album Peace (1999). The 1985 album track "I Love You Like a Ball and Chain" is also performed, as well as two 1992 hits from Annie Lennox's solo career, "Why" and "Walking on Broken Glass".

The DVD version also includes several special features, such as multi-angle viewing for selected tracks (where the viewer can select different camera angles using the remote control), an interactive discography, a picture gallery, lyrics screens, and a 60-minute documentary ("Peacetalk") featuring interviews with bandmembers Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart and several studio-based performances of songs.
