World Wide Live is a live album by German rock band Scorpions released in 1985. The original audio recording was produced by Dieter Dierks. A VHS was released at the same time with footage of Scorpions' world tour.

The live album was originally released as a 2LP vinyl set, in a gatefold-sleeve, and a cassette. The liner notes contain a crew member list, tour date information and when the shows were recorded:

  • Sports Arena, San Diego, CA, USA (4/26/84)
  • The Forum, Los Angeles, CA, USA (4/24/84 & 4/25/84)
  • Pacific Amphitheatre, Costa Mesa, CA, USA (4/28/84)
  • Bercy, Paris, France (2/29/84)
  • Sporthalle, Cologne, West Germany (11/17/84)

The initial CD release featured 15 tracks (dropping "Another Piece of Meat", "Six-String Sting" and "Can't Get Enough", parts 1 & 2, due to time constraints), but the remastered edition of 1997 features the original album in full.
