Top 10 Concert Films to See Before You Die



7. Monterey Pop Fest

Featuring some of the biggest names from the '60s, this film captures rock legends as they were on the verge of becoming superstars. Remember the time when The Who destroyed their instruments or when Jimi Hendrix lit his guitar on fire? It's captured here in all its glory.


6. Dave Chappelle's Block Party

What happens when you combine the most enigmatic comedian of his time (Dave Chappelle), an acclaimed French director (Michel Gondry), Brooklyn and a Fugees reunion? You get one of the most underrated concert movies in recent memory. Featuring Kanye West and The Roots amongst others, the vibe is celebratory and triumphant and made you feel jealous you weren't in Fort Greene that day to take in the festivities.


5. Concert For George

Paying tribute to the quiet Beatle on the first anniversary of his death, friends like Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton and Tom Petty banded together for this charity tribute gig. Seeing Harrison's famous friends collaborate while covering his songs was the ultimate sign of respect for one of the most underrated guitarists of his time.

Seriously, how did "Shine a Light" win out over "Gimme Shelter" (which should be near the top of the list...)?
