Does anybody still watch these? What are some of your favorites?

I used to love buying live DVDs. I still enjoy a good concert film, but they seem completely irrelevant now

The Last Waltz might be the best one I've ever seen.

Sign O' The Times and Stop Making Sense are my favorites, but there's also a lot of good, minor ones. I posted Perfect Square in that REM thread and that was one I really used to love.

I used to watch them far more frequently. I still throw some on in the background while I'm grading. If I do that, it's ones I've watched before like Touring Band or the concert that came with the Purple Rain deluxe edition.

Nirvana's Unplugged is a classic. I remember my friends and I huddling around the TV to watch that back in the height of my Nirvana craze. I still have it somewhere...

I recently got rid of all my concert DVD's. I had about 20-25 of them that I had collected over the years. I don't think I watched any of them more than once or twice.

I did watch "Touring Band 2000" on VHS a fair amount back when it came out. These days I'm a lot more likely to just watch a clip here and there on YouTube.

I still watch concert films occassionally. I rarely get to go to actual concerts unless I travel so... A couple favourites are Black Keys Live and Tragically Hip That Night in Toronto.

In general, I am a big fan of live releases. I play lots for for the music but the following for the show as well;

The Tea Party - Live in Australia
Led Zeppelin - The Song Remains The Same, RoyalU2 Albert Hall and Knebworth sets on DVD
David Gilmour - Live at Pompeii
Bruce Springsteen - Live at Hammersmith
U2 - Zoo TV, Popmart, Live From Boston
Steven Wilson - Get What You Deserve

I also listen to a bunch of video compilations for the 5.1 mixes.

I completely forgot about U2's ZooTV film. I love that show/tour. That will forever be in rotation.

The kids are alright is fantastic.
The nationals film, Mistaken for strangers is also brilliant. And funny
The frames have one called in the deep shade, which is great.
There’s a doco about daft punk that’s great but it’s more about their recording process but it’s worth a watch.

Agreed and add the live blu Ray from the River boxed set.

While Youtube has been my go-to for years now, I still have tons of these and buy new ones from time to time. In 2018 I got Behemoth’s The Satanist Live and Devin Townsend’s Ocean Machine Live in Australia.

I watch The Last Waltz every Thanksgiving.

MMJ's Okonokos every couple years.

Tweedy's Live in the Pacific Northwest from time to time.

Drive-By Trucker's Live at the 40 Watt and Live from ACL are pretty good.

They're nice to have on in the background.
