Live at the Viper Room 1.15.98 is a live album by The Smashing Pumpkins documenting the January 15, 1998 solo acoustic performances by Billy Corgan and James Iha at the The Viper Room. It is the second installment of the archival series after Live at Kawasaki 2.24.92, though Live at the Viper Room shipped first. In this edition, Iha debuts his solo material for Let It Come Down, while Corgan debuts the new songs for Adore, both only on acoustic guitar.

The album went on sale exclusively through Madame ZuZu's website on July 31, 2021[1] and sold out within two days. It was offered in two colors – gold and silver – both with options to pay to have it autographed by Billy Corgan. As James Iha was located in Los Angeles, away from Chicago where Corgan and presumably the Smashing Pumpkins archive team is located, he was unable to sign any records.

Due to a worldwide shortage in vinyl manufacturing, units did not ship until late December 2021, with the Silver edition shipping in January 2022.
