Live at the Roxy Theatre is a live album released by Brian Wilson in 2000. After a successful period of touring following the release of Imagination, Wilson decided to record his first ever live solo album. Accompanied by his supporting band, Wilson used Live at the Roxy Theatre to play his old Beach Boys favorites as well as some less-heard highlights from his long career.

There are a few surprises amid the well-known classics, however. Wilson takes the opportunity to introduce two songs: "The First Time" and "This Isn't Love" (itself a collaboration with Pet Sounds lyricist Tony Asher). In addition, in a moment of humor, the flesh and blood Wilson sings a portion of Barenaked Ladies' song "Brian Wilson". Because of Wilson's continuing ease in front of audiences, and the confident performances throughout, Live at the Roxy Theatre received positive reviews upon release.

Live at the Roxy Theatre was initially and exclusively distributed through Wilson's freshly-inaugurated website in June 2000 on his own Brimel Records label for one year. An independent label, Oglio Records, subsequently redistributed Live at the Roxy Theatre to stores with the addition of three bonus tracks.
