In Concert is a live triple album by the Doors released in 1991. The songs were recorded at several concerts between 1968 and 1970 in Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Detroit, and Copenhagen.[1] The Doors' producer, Paul A. Rothchild, remarked, "I couldn't get complete takes of a lot of songs, so sometimes I'd cut from Detroit to Philadelphia in midsong. There must be 2,000 edits on that album."[2]

In Concert includes tracks previously released on Absolutely Live (1970), Alive, She Cried (1983), and Live at the Hollywood Bowl (1987) plus a recording of "The End".[1]
