Live at the Boston Garden: April 5, 1968 is a concert film starring James Brown. Recorded at the Boston Garden by WGBH-TV the night after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., it was broadcast live in an effort to quell potential riots in the city. The recording circulated as a bootleg before it was officially released on DVD by Shout! Factory in 2008 as part of the box set I Got the Feelin': James Brown in the '60s.[1] It received a stand-alone release in 2009.[2]

The concert was the subject of the 2008 PBS/VH-1 documentary The Night James Brown Saved Boston, directed by David Leaf and a chapter of Common Ground by J. Anthony Lukas.
