Double Live is the first live album by American country music artist Garth Brooks. It was released on November 17, 1998 and is a two-disc compilation of live songs, recorded during Brooks' 1996-98 world tour.

The album broke the first-week sales record at the time, previously held by Pearl Jam's Vs., when it sold 1,085,000 copies.[4] It became the best-selling live album in the US since Eric Clapton's Unplugged in 1992, later becoming the best-selling live album in United States music history. It has been certified 21× Platinum by the RIAA (10.5 million shipped as it is a double album), and is the seventh most shipped album in the US.[5] By 2012, it had sold 6,017,000 copies.[6]

Double Live was re-released on September 5, 2014, as Double Live: 25th Anniversary Edition, exclusive to GhostTunes.[7]
