Sacred Heart "The Video" is the third video album by the American heavy metal band Dio, containing footage of a live concert performance recorded at The Spectrum arena in Philadelphia on June 17, 1986. The concert was filmed during the tour supporting the album Sacred Heart, and the live performance involved complex mechanical devices and laser effects, which cost an estimated US$250,000 to build and transport.[2]

The video was only released on VHS, Beta and VHD (Japan only). When it was re-released in DVD format in 2004, it was retitled Sacred Heart "The DVD". The DVD also added an interview with singer Ronnie James Dio and guitarist Craig Goldy. A complete, remastered performance of the show was released as a DVD/cd/180 vinyl by Eagle Vision in 2012 with the title Finding the Sacred Heart, along with extra videos and interviews.
