The Pumpkins were good live in the 90's
I would agree with most of the aforementioned historical world-class performances. Not sure the Peppers or Rush fall into that class, however.
For my own fav's that I personnaly experienced, it was the Dead at Englishtown and the Meadowlands. Although the 70's was good to me, so I don't even remember all the concerts I've been to.
For a more recent perfromance, AudioSlave was intense. Standing 20ft from Chris Cornell and experienceing his voice and watching Morello do his thing..the sound and force were amazing. Oh yeah, and the revived Alice in Chains was excellent. The front man does a decent job of replacing the un-replaceable, and Cantrell's playing is as rich and plush and demonic as ever.
Queen at Live Aid. The owned the whole show, the owned the audience, they owned the entire world.
I know right? I don't think I've ever seen anyone suggest another performance at Live Aid was better than theirs.
I completely agree. Pure P'wnage
Odin's Raven Magic
KISS in concert
If you want to see fireworks, feel percussion blast, see lighted guitars, singers lifted into the air, sparklers, rockets shot from the stage, bright flashing lights, confettie everywhere, etc...go see a KISS concert (before they stop performing)
Its more a circus than a concert. the music is secondary to the show and the cheap juvenile commerce that Kiss has become.
For me its too plastic and childish.
Their first 2 albums and the classic Alive! double album rock nicely though.
As far as a whole concert goes I dont really know. But I'll post my favourite live performance anyway....
People can say what they want about maybe it not Jimmy's best performance technically etc (atleast people on the comments on that video point that out anyway) but the passion and shear joy he shows in this one particular performance just makes this video my favourite on youtube. There are plenty of videos of him performing this song, but this particular one is the best for me in the emotion he's showing, how he's living every note and he just seems to be having so much fun in perfoming on this particular occasion (dont care if he's high or whatever, it's just love of music for me)
Shinedown is a good rock group to see live.
James Brown gave the best performance I ever saw with George Clinton being second. Never again. Foevermore
Maybe not the best but still a damn good performance of one of my favorite songs
Lee is spot-on with this solo!
Prince Just Jumped in the last minute for this Live performance w/some legends. i LOVE this video and Prince's Guitar Solo
Complete and utter ownage, almost reaching anhiliation!
Queen are a pantomine rockband. It's all about the show, they'll be beatles, stones, Zeppelin bootlegs better than Queen.
For you old-timers, The Band's 1971 'Rock of Ages' 2-cd live set is pretty good, right up there with 'Live at Leeds' and 'Band of Gypsys'.
A split between Milli Vanilli and Vanilla Ice.
Vanilla Ice lost the parachute pants. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtUc6mVgxZY
Nirvana at Reading in 92 was stunning.
Right, because those groups all have vocalists that can match (or beat) Freddie, and they harmonize better too.
It's a pantomine a big show, yes Freddie Mecury had great vocals but they never wrote anything good. Plus they gave the world 'we are the champions' which is one of the most annoying overplayed songs ever. Something pissed up football fans sing after winning a cup.
Queen are not in the same league as the groups I posted. Not in the same ballpark in terms of songwriting as Macca/Lennon, Jagger/Richards and Page/Plant.
Well, that's your opinion, and you're entitled to it. I, for one, think they wrote a lot of great songs.
Grand Funk Railroad were awesome live. Pure American power.
What tosh. None of the bands you mentioned could get a crowd as involved as Freddie Mercury could.
John Lennon's an utter **** in my opinion, look at this quotation on his thoughts about Neil Young's 'Hey Hey, My My':
10cc 'Wall street shuffle' live was awesome.
look, I know most of you won't have even heard of them, but Powderfinger on their 'Sunsets' farewell tour were pretty damn epic.
20 years of brilliant music, what a way to go..
here is their last live performance of anything, and you bet I was there!
this is just a good song...
Forgot about Rough Trade, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euqNbgL8YP8
Barry Manilow was a guy known for his energy live laden with stage prescence and outrageously challenging stances.
What song is it you wanna hear
Though it shreds and rips through the chords well enough,
it does lack sexappeal. This is way better imo:
Makes me slightly hungry...
A great live act was Thin Lizzy. They has a kinda unique music style and 2 major guitarists in Moore and Gorham.
bump. because I can...
JUL 31, 2000 LIVE & Counting Crowes at Deer Creek, Noblesville, IN. (For perspective, 1st concert was JUN 1983 Journey & Bryan Adams at Market Square Arena.)
Big letdown=Motley Crue.
Alice in Chains were known for their live performances. Sounds better than their albums.
Their "unplugged" performance on MTV was good stuff
You're all seem to be forgetting this musical genius
In all seriousness though, I was trying to find my favourite RHCP performance, but couldn't pick just one. Always will be one of my favourite live acts, along with Muse.
I know the feeling man, they are just ridiculous.
This is my favorite single performance right now, (it changes often) but the entire Poland show is fantastic.
Here's their FUSE show from 2006.... Strongly recommend watching it if you haven't seen it. Best performance of Tell me baby, Charlie and Snow in this one.
So great! Also Grateful Dead Europe '72.
The crowd was estimated at around 1.3 million people, this just looks incredible, so much energy and the perfect song to open it. 54million views on youtube!!!! I can't even imagine what it would feel like to go out on stage and rock this crowd, close to feeling like a god.
I really like this one. I love the way the entire wembley stadium sings the chorus.
One of my dreams is to see one of my favourite bands perform at wembley. What I would have given to see Foo Fighters or Muse perform there....
Led Zeppelin at Madison Square Garden
& http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlNhD0oS5pk (Achilles Last Stand Live Video)
Nirvana on SNL was great
"Ladies and Gentlemen..."
I can't stop watching this. Freddie Mercury was incredible.
The Verve on Jools Holland, Life's an Ocean.
That bass..that guitar..those drums..that melody.
Also Stone Roses at Blackpool
Santana at Woodstock
There's really nothing you can say about his live performing and crowd-grabbing abilities. It's ridiculous how good he is and how powerful his voice is.
