List RulesVote for your personal favorite Concert film films, regardless of how popular or successful they were at the box office.

Here it is, folks: a list of all the best concert movies ever made, many of which are streaming on Netflix and Amazon Prime. This concert movie list can be sorted by cast, year, director and more, and you can click on the titles for more information about each film. The best thing about this list is that YOU get to decide which concert movies are the "best" by voting for your favorites to help your faves move up to the top spots.

So, which concert movie is the absolute best film of all time: Irish Tenors: Ellis Island or The Filthy Lucre Tour: Live in Japan? If we missed any concert films on this list, please add them yourself, as this is an open list, which means you can add any movies whenever you like (but remember, all choices are subject to moderation). The films on this list cover the most famous concert movies of all time and are voted on by people who really love this genre.

Whether you're at home and want to watch these concert movies on DVD, Blu-ray or streaming online -- or if you're seeing them in theaters for the first time, this list will help you see where they all stack up and help you decide what to watch first. So, from the latest to the greatest concert movies, here is our full list, ordered from best to worst, based on your votes.
