 Best Ten Concert Films Since 2000

Let’s face it, it’s an impossible task for any concert film made in the 21st century to live up to the golden standard set by The Last Waltz and Stop Making Sense decades ago. If you read any best-of list for concert films, one of those two is bound to be in the top spot. They’re both so ingrained as all-time classics that they’ll be topping lists 50 years from now.

However, recent years have provided music lovers plenty of reasons to keep watching, and with the premiere of LCD Soundsystem’s highly anticipated Shut Up and Play the Hits this week, it would appear that the concert film format is back in the spotlight. In light of its release, Consequence of Sound explored some of the more modern classics and put together a list of their favorite concert films post-2000.

Ok MPIE was 98, still the lack of Bittersweet Motel is unacceptable.

the last scene of Under Great White Northern Lights is easily one of the few moments in any kind of movie where I can really feel a ton of emotion. It’s watching a band crumble and fall apart.
