We all love a good studio album, but fans of the best rock bands will always tell you there's no substitute for seeing 'em live – even if, given the vagaries of touring schedules and the ever-climbing cost of concert tickets, that isn't always possible.

Fortunately, there's no shortage of live albums to help us get a little closer to the stage with our favorite artists, and for that added extra bit of verisimilitude, there's nothing like a well-filmed concert documentary.

The next time you're in the mood to watch a classic rock artist tear it up in front of a screaming crowd, reach for one of these movies. Whether you're looking for killer riffs, psychedelic soundscapes, or all-star action, you can't go wrong with our gallery of the Top 10 Classic Rock Concert Films.
