Live-Ism is the third concert film by Swedish pop music duo Roxette, released on 21 August 1992 on VHS and LaserDisc formats by Picture Music International and EMI. It contains a shortened version of the duo's 13 December 1991 concert in the Sydney Entertainment Centre in Australia during the Join the Joyride! Tour,[1] which saw Roxette performing to over 1.5 million people during the tour's 100 shows.[2] The video also contains behind the scenes footage, as well as the music videos to "Church of Your Heart", "(Do You Get) Excited?", and their then-current single "How Do You Do!".[1]

Live-Ism is a companion piece to the duo's fourth studio album, Tourism, which was released a week after the film.[1] Furthermore, the audio of two live recordings featured on Tourism – "The Look" and "Joyride" – are both taken from the same concert featured on Live-Ism.[3] The film was remastered and reissued on DVD exclusively in South Africa in 2011 by Revolver Records.[4]
