Live In Italy is an album by Lou Reed recorded live over two nights in September 1983[4] (on the 07th in Verona and on the 10th, at the ruins of Circus Maximus,[5] in Rome) using the Rolling Stones Mobile Unit.[6] It was issued on vinyl only in Germany, UK and Japan. At the time, Reed and his band were on a world tour to promote the album Legendary Hearts. A live video, A Night with Lou Reed, filmed at a New York concert, was also released to coincide with the album. The video omitted the songs "Betrayed", "Sally Can't Dance", "Average Guy" and "Some Kinda Love"/"Sister Ray", while adding "Don't Talk to Me About Work", "Women", "Turn Out the Light" and "New Age".

In 1996 the album was reissued under the title Live in Concert.
