A Long Day's Night is the fourth live album by Blue Öyster Cult. It was recorded on June 21, 2002, the Summer Solstice of that year, and released on September 24, 2002 by Sanctuary Records.

The concert was released in both CD and DVD format, with the DVD version containing six more songs than the CD and the CD containing "Astronomy," a song not found on the DVD.

A remaster is set to be released on December 4, 2020, with the Blu-ray containing a new 5.1 surround sound mix and upscaled 1080p video, as well as never-before-seen video of "Astronomy" and "Joan Crawford," the latter of which was not present on the original release.
