With the pandemic came the cancellation of just about every kind of live event out there, including live music. The number of live music events that were cancelled was like nothing we’d seen in recent history, with most 2020 tours being rescheduled for future dates (if they could be rescheduled at all). Live music, whether we’re talking big stadium concerts or smaller gigs in your local bar, is an experience that can be hard to replicate — and for those of you who have been missing that live music scene, we’ve found a couple of concert movie streaming options that may ease your pain, from Stevie Nicks to Beyoncé and beyond.
There’s something about hearing musicians play live that’s a real treat for the senses. From practically feeling the music in your body to the energy that’s created in the room, live music events are a unique experience that have been missed by a lot of people over the past year, including artists themselves. Many musicians have been pivoting (are you tired of hearing that word yet?) to performing much more intimate shows online via livestreams on YouTube, Facebook, and elsewhere, so fans are still able to have access to live music in some capacity. But there’s still something that can be hard to replicate through the live streams that you really only get at a live event: the energy and excitement from the audience.
This is where concert movies come in. Concert movies capture the live music itself and the crowd that was in attendance, which means they’re as close to a full on live music event that you can get at the moment. Even better, they’ve got plenty of rewatch (or re-listen!) value.
Read on for the best concert movies you can watch right now — until concerts come back.
