Top 25 Best Concert Movies Ever Made



25 .) Elvis: That’s The Way It Is (1970) directed by Denis Sanders

Elvis: That’s The Way It Is (1970)

Lists It Appears On:

  • Louder Sound
  • Ranker
  • Vulture

This 1970 concert documentary captures Elvis Presley midway through a fateful transition, seeking to reclaim his musical primacy after a decade of self-imposed exile from concert stages. Sidelined by his big-screen career, eclipsed by rock’s mid-’60s transformations, the King had begun his return two years earlier with the relatively lean attack of his fabled network television appearance, ’68 Comeback Special. Now the Memphis legend was poised to reposition his performing profile by pursuing the top rungs of headliner status in Las Vegas, a career choice that seems even more ephemeral in hindsight than it already did at the time. Elvis: That’s the Way It Is follows the show’s genesis from rehearsal to stage, with the performance footage that provides its inevitable climax shot over six nights. The rehearsal footage, expanded for this special edition, offers further proof that Presley’s band was simply superb… ×

  • Relix
  • Ultimate Classic Rock

St. Louis, 1986. For Chuck Berry’s 60th, Keith Richards assembles a pickup band of Robert Cray, Joey Spampinato, Eric Clapton, himself, and long-time Berry pianist Johnnie Johnson. Joined on stage by Etta James, Linda Ronstadt, and Julian Lennon, Berry performs his classic rock songs. His abilities as a composer, lyricist, singer, musician, and entertainer are on display and, in behind-the-scenes interviews, are discussed by Bo Diddley, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bruce Springstein, the Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison, and others. There’s even a rarity for Berry, a rehearsal. Archival footage from the early 1950s and a duet with John Lennon round out this portrait of a master. ×



22 .) Heima (2007) directed by Dean DeBlois

Heima (2007)

Lists It Appears On:

  • Hypable
  • NME
  • Relix

“Heima”, which translates as both “at home” and “homeland”, chronicles a series of free concerts Sigur Ros played in their native Iceland over the course of summer 2006. The entire tour was filmed and provides a unique insight into one of the world’s most inscrutable bands while exploring their natural habitat like never before, with performances in deserted fish factories, at far-flung community halls, in sylvan fields, darkened caves, canyons, and fjords. Limited deluxe edition is individually numbered and includes 100 page bound book.



21 .) Rattle and Hum (1988) directed by Phil Joanou

Rattle and Hum (1988)

Lists It Appears On:

  • Clash Music
  • Rolling Stone
  • Taste Of Cinema

A concert movie on an unprecedented scale, Rattle And Hum captures U2 – on and off the stage – during their triumphant Joshua Tree tour. From the giant technicolour stadium celebrations to the black-and-white intensity of the indoor shows, this is U2 at their best. Follow the group across America, exploring new influences, playing with the legendary B.B. King from Dublin to Graceland.



20 .) Rust Never Sleeps (1979) directed by Neil Young

Rust Never Sleeps (1979)

Lists It Appears On:

  • IMDB 2
  • Planet Rock
  • Relix

Neil Young’s 1978 concert tour, documented in this acclaimed two-hour film that was directed by Young himself (using the pseudonym Bernard Shakey), is a treat for the singer-songwriter’s fans. The concept of the show is high (for Young, anyway), if rather odd: roadies (here called “Road Eyes”) decked out like Jawas from Star Wars, stage announcements from the original Woodstock during set changes, and giant amps, microphones, and so on for an “Incredible Shrinking Man” effect. Of course, it’s the music that counts, and there’s plenty of that, what with nearly 20 songs (including two versions of “Hey Hey, My My,” his nod to the punk movement), acoustic and electric (with longtime companions Crazy Horse), dating back to his Buffalo Springfield days (“I Am a Child”) and continuing through popular solo numbers like “Cinnamon Girl” and the extended “Like a Hurricane.” ×



19 .) T.A.M.I. Show (1964) directed by Steve Binder

Hailed by one music reviewer as “the grooviest, wildest, slickest hit ever to pound the screen,” “The T.A.M.I. Show” is an unrelenting rock spectacular starring some of the greatest pop performers of the 60s. These top recording idols – representing the musical moods of London, Liverpool, Hollywood and Detroit – packed the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium with 2,600 screaming fans and virtually brought down the house. This is the cinematic record of that electrifying event. ×

  • Relix

In 2007 the legendary American duo White Stripes toured Canada. Besides playing the usual venues they challenged themselves and played in buses, cafés and for Indian tribal elders. Music video director Emmett Malloy followed the band and managed to capture both the special tour, extraordinary concert versions of the band’s minimalist, raw, blues-inspired rock songs and the special relationship between the extroverted Jack White and the introspective Meg White – a formerly married couple who for a long time claimed to be siblings. The film makes striking use of the band’s concert colors: red, white and black. ×

On April 2nd 2011, LCD SOUNDSYSTEM played its final show at Madison Square Garden in New York City. LCD Frontman James Murphy, disbanding one of the most celebrated and influential groups of its generation at the peak of its popularity, ensured that the band would go out on top with the biggest concert of its career. The instantly sold out, near four-hour extravaganza featured special appearances by Arcade Fire and Reggie Watts and moved the crowd of thousands to tears of joy and grief. SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS both captures this once-in-a-lifetime event with stunning visuals and serves as an intimate portrait of Murphy as he navigates the 48 hours surrounding the show. Woven throughout is an honest and unflinching conversation between Murphy and author Chuck Klosterman as they discuss music, art, aging, and the decision to call it quits while at the top of your game. ×

Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars (1979)

Lists It Appears On:

  • AMC

  • Planet Rock
  • Ranker
  • Relix

Documentary from David Bowie’s concert at the Hammersmith Odeon in London on 3 July 1973, when he performed as alter ego Ziggy Stardust for the very last time. The quintessential moment in glam-rock history, ZIGGY STARDUST AND THE SPIDERS FROM MARS is David Bowie at his best. This film of the 1973 concert (released 10 years later) documents the hallucinogenic collage of kitsch, Warhol/Pop irony, and flamboyant excess that was the Bowie phenomenon: his trademark synthetic androgyny is a musical symbiosis of feminine passion and masculine dominance that define his funky, gender-bending art and, ultimately, the glam-rock genre as a whole. Early on, the film cuts to elaborate backstage costume changes between sets, highlighting a playlist that includes such classics as “Changes,” “Space Oddity,” “Time,” and “Suffragette City.” ×

In 1987, to capitalize on his growing success in Europe, Prince toured extensively to promote the album of the same name and sales increased accordingly. However, the United States remained resistant to his latest album, and sales began to drop; it was at this point that Prince decided to film a live concert promoting the new material, for eventual distribution to theaters in America. Featuring the band that accompanied Prince on his 1987 Sign o’ the Times Tour, including dancer Cat Glover, keyboardist Boni Boyer, bassist Levi Seacer, Jr., guitarist Miko Weaver, drummer Sheila E. and former member of The Revolution keyboardist Dr. Fink, the film sees the group perform live on stage (although “U Got the Look” is represented by its promotional music video). ×
