Off the top of my head, I could only think of one that I would include: 'Monterey Pop', which came out in 1968. It's about the legendary Monterey Pop Festival, which went down in California over three days in 1967.
If you care, here's my Top Five: 'The Last Waltz', "'Gimme Shelter', 'Monterey Pop', 'Woodstock' and 'The Song Remains the Same'.
Here's the theatrical trailer for my #1 pick...'The Last Waltz':
