Greatest Live Concert DVDs (spin-off)

It light of my other thread, do any of you have any reccommendations for some great live concert DVDs? Doesn't matter the band or genre, although I prefer rock. Thanks!

No particular order of the ones I have that I would recommend. I've really gotten into buying these lately.
Gimme Shelter
Live at the Beacon Theatre - Allman Brothers
David Gilmour in Concert
Led Zeppelin
I heard that Roger Waters is good, but have not seen it.
Widespread Panic - Either Oak Mtn. or Panic in the Streets
The Last Waltz
Alison Krauss is supposed to be very good
The first Bonnaroo was better than I thought it would be. I have not seen the 2003 disc yet.
James Taylor at the Beacon Theatre

Roger Waters: In the Flesh Live has a permanent place in my changer. Great versions of Floyd songs even without Gilmour's guitar or voice. Some of his excellent solo material. Still waiting to hear of a 10th anniversary of Pulse next year!

A few of the other ones I have in heavy rotation are:
Eagles: Hell Freezes Over
Genesis: The Way We Walk
Weird Al Yankovic Live
The Moody Blues: Live from Royal Albert Hall
Tenacious D: The Complete Masterworks
Ben Folds Five: Complete Sessions at West 54th

Sting's "...All This Time" is my favorite. Great documentary too.

There's been a thread or two on this in Music Talk if you want more lists.

DMB- Listner Supported & Live at Folsom Field (sure the soon to be released Live at Central Park will be great as well).

Pearl Jam- Touring Band 2000 (also have a 2 DVD concert coming out next week which I'm sure will be great).

Incubus- The Morning View Sessions & Volume 2

Led Zeppelin DVD

I love being one of the only Steve Hackett fans on these boards. if you like early Genesis and King Crimson type progressive rock....pick up any of these titles:

Steve Hackett-Tokyo Tapes Live
Steve Hackett-Horizons
Steve Hackett-Live In South America
King Crimson-Deja Vroom...this dvd freakin' rocks...so dont lie to yerself.
also....
Todd Rundgren and Utopia-Live In Columbus, Ohio 1980...weak sound and picture at times...but a solid and essential show!

Steve Lukather & Los Lobotomys Live
Steve Morse/Dixie Dregs Live..the greatest guitar player in the world. see his link below in my sig. same for Hackett.

Rush - Rush in Rio
Motörhead - Boneshaker: 25 & Alive
Slayer - War at the Warfield
Ministry - SphincTOUR
Pink Floyd - Live at Pompeii


...Are my top five favourites. I've got a tonne of music DVDs, all of them great, but these seem to creep into my player more often than most.

Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band - Live in New York City is great -- amazing performance, great HD camera work and outstanding sound. The new Live in Barcelona is equally good, as those of us who have seen it can atest.

If you can find it on DVD, Neil Young & Crazy Horse in Rust Never Sleeps is a great film too. Made in '78 or '79 and captures one of the best rock tours ever.

Tom Petty's recent DVDs, SoundStage (available from PBS) and Live at the Olympic are great too. Petty's High Grass Dogs (Live at the Fillmore) from a few years back is one of the best sounding concert DVDs I've ever heard.
