The Art of Live

The Art of Live is both a live album and DVD by American progressive metal band Queensrÿche. Both the DVD and CD were recorded during the group's 2003 co-headlining tour (with Dream Theater) in support of Tribe. The track listing for both releases is nearly identical, although the DVD omits "Anybody Listening?" and includes two cover versions – "Comfortably Numb" (Pink Floyd) and "Won't Get Fooled Again" (The Who) – performed on stage with Dream Theater.

The album is not generally indicative of the band's setlist from this period, and is instead a compilation which largely highlights recent or acoustic material played on the 2003 tour. [3]
