The best live concert or show or performance you've been to in 2012
 
I've been to about 12 concerts this year. The best show of the year for me was last night October 6th 2012, The Black Keys at Staples Center. Damn good show and my favorite of the year. What about you? What was the best live concert/show/performance you've seen this year?

God thats a hard question, many were great and some downright bad.
In my book its a draw between Ryan Adams and Toto.

I will go for Toto. superb musicians.

Either St. Vincent at Shepherd's Bush Empire which involved her crowdsurfing during her last song and accidentally booting someone in the face or Elvis Costello & the Imposters at the Royal Albert Hall.

So far... Guns & Roses, Metallica & Stone Temple Pilots ;-)

If I had to pick one... G & R.

St. Vincent is great! I saw her a few months back at the Observatory here in Orange County

Saw fun. about 4 months ago. AMAZING live show.

Nate Ruess' voice is unreal.

Peter Gabriel, this past weekend at Hollywood Bowl. Played the entire classic So album from 25 years ago from beginning to end, and played lots of his other best stuff too. I'd been looking forward to it for months and was well rewarded.

I loved The Format too, but I also love fun.

Seeing them live made me appreciate them even more.

They were in my college campus last semester, some weeks before "We are Young" really exploded. A lot of people were talking about them, but I didn't go to the show. It was in a real small venue too, which I like.

2012- B-52s
2011- Steely Dan (not touring in 2012...)

Usually i go to several concerts per year. This year it was only one, so by default that was my favorite of 2012.

Aerosmith and Cheap Trick at the Hollywood Bowl

Saw the So album concert last nite at SB Bowl. It was magical and very artistic. Quite a production and very enjoyable.

Saw Ketch and Critter of Old Crow Medicine Show do a two man show earlier this year. One of my favorite bands of the last few years. Also saw Mason Jennings for the upteenth time last month and he was solid, as always.

Pearl Jam 93 in Brixton academy in London
Faith No more in Belfort in 97
Roger waters in Paris in 2004 and in 2007
Richie Hawtin in Berlin 2 years ago

Cant decide between the 4 of them

None of them qualify for this thread, however.

The Chili Peppers, saw them 3 times.

Yep didnt see the 2012 in the title
