The Best Concert DVDs of 2009

I wouldn't exactly call this a banner year for concert DVDs, but to help you find the diamonds in the rough I'm pleased to announce Jamtopia's Best Concert DVDs of 2009.

In some ways this may be your father's concert DVD collection (Woodstock, Van Morrison) and in other ways not so much (Maiden, Nirvana). Come to think of it, there's pretty much something for everyone. Plus at about $15 to $20 a pop, you can probably still afford to go see a real concert.
