Missing concerts? Fill the void that the absence of live music has left in your life with these classic live performances you can dance to at home!

The Beastie Boys – Awesome; I Fuckin’ Shot That!

The Beastie Boys are one of the most chaotic, hilarious, and influential groups ever. This energy is perfectly portrayed in this live performance, that was cut together from fans’ footage and captures the atmosphere of their gigs.

Fans at their sold-out Madison Square Garden show on October 9, 2004 were handed camcorders and asked to keep them running for the entirety of the concert. “Awesome; I Fuckin’ Shot That!” is a captivating experience.

Talking Heads – Stop Making Sense

The Talking Heads concert film directed by Jonathan Demme in 1984 may be the greatest live performance movie ever made.

It’s 100 minutes of kinetic and uplifting noise, awesome dancers and a visual narrative of a band coming together and falling apart. Same as it ever was.

Patti Smith Group – Capitol Theatre

Patti Smith is raw, powerful, and dominating. This performance, recorded in 1979, has long confirmed Smith as one of the foremost performers of her generation.

Smith owns the stage and connects with her audiences through punky guttural vocals and existential ponderings.

Prince and the Revolution: Live

Recorded in 1985 as part of Prince’s Purple Rain tour, this live performance is truly incredible and a must-see. Prince and The Revolution deliver flawless high-energy rock and a seemingly endless supply of ruffled clothing.

Whether you’re home alone, with family, or housemates, shake your body to these classic concerts! Until we meet again.
