I haven't watched that many yet.... well I have but I only have a few real favorties right now...

David Gilmour in Concert
Roger Waters - In The Flesh Live
Sarah Brightman - Live From Las Vegas

I liked Prince - Purple Rain... but that's more of a movie with lot's of music instead of a straight up solid concert.

Honorable mentions are Kansas, Styx, Elton John, and Pink Floyd - The Wall... but I don't imagine I could include them in my top five.

I'm sure my list will grow. I think I've got some good ones on hand to watch in The Eagles and Eric Clapton.

I love concert DVD's. My favorites have to be.

Eric Clapton - One More Car, One More Rider (the first half of the show is a lot of accoustical, while the second half of the show rocks)
Eagles - Hell Freezes Over (my first, but still one of my most played. Even my 3 year old loves this one)
Diana Krall - Live in Paris (if you like Jazz, this one has reference level sound quality)
Keb Mo - Sessions at West 54th (Accoustic Blues, very intimate performance with amazing sound quality.)

If I think of any more, I will post them.

Blue Man Group / Complex Rock Tour Live -- Totally lame that it's not in DD or DTS, but awesome nonetheless.

I just added "David Gilmour in Concert" to the top of my Netflix list.

I think you'll end up buying the DGIC and if you like Floyd... check out the Roger Waters In the Flesh Live too. Fabulous shows.

I don't watch too many of these but currently the Godsmack Live DVD and Rush in Concert recorded from INHD or HDNet have been getting a lot of play at my place.

Hey Guys,
Shortly after getting our projector, Diana and I went out and picked up several DVD concerts.
Of them my personal favorites are:

Crosby, Stills & Nash The acoustic concert (2004) I felt like they were in our room performing just for us... Fantastic must have for CS&N fans....

Eric Clapton unpluged .......... Very well done

Elton John.....Dream ticket ......... 4 disk box set filimed at various venues... Epheses the great amphitheatre was our favorite location.....

Norah Jones and the Handsome Band ......... Another example of the band being in the room with you....

Cream reunion tour 2005 Royal Albert Hall ........ Fun to see them back together after all these years

Sade ....... Sade lovers live Felt like a night out......

Pink Floyd ... The Wall ...... Must have for Floyd fans


The Moody Blues ........ A Night at Red Rock 1992 polished , professional and an amazing place, would have loved to have been there.

Darrel :)

I have the Clapton unplugged on LD and it was always one of my wife and I's favorites... I gotta get it on DVD too. I have the One More Car, One More Rider that I haven't even watched yet (shame on me).

I bet that Cream and Moody Blues is good. I'm a pretty big classic rock fan, especially from that era that was maybe a tad before my time. I had no clue about music until I was about 17-18, which was in 78-79.

We have an Elton John DVD concert... can't think of the name of it now but the video is horrendous. I don't think it's Dream Ticket though... is the PQ on it any good?

I was turned on to Sarah Brightman via forum buddies and I've heard a lot about Norah Jones... I'm probably gonna have to give her a spin too.

Here lately, Ive really dedicated my HT experience to concert DVDs. Some ones worth buying for both sound and picture quality are in addition to the ones I own in the first thread are:

Metallica S & M - Performs with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra

ELO Zoom - Awesome DTS

Bee Gees - One Night Only - DTS

Earth Wind and Fire with Chicago - DTS

Alan Parsons Live in Madrid - Dolby 2.0 only however great sound quality.

DONT BUY FOREIGNER - Poor Lou Graham had brain cancer and spread to his lymph nodes. His voice isnt the same.

The only unfortunate thing in having a high quality HT is that ****** recordings which could sound decent in budget HT can sound like **** on reference systems. Trade off I guess, but not always the best of both worlds. Hope this helps!

This is a great thread! I've already found several I need to go check out.

How come no one has mentioned the venerable Talking Heads' "Stop Making Sense" concert video?

My two favorites (both mentioned already):

Eric Clapton "One More CaR, One More Rider" is awesome, and Elton John "Dream Ticket" is lots of fun.
