Just like Alice Cooper, KISS is the best show on earth I mean pyro, lights, blood, costumes, smoke, skulls! I dare you to find another band that can mix all with fun rock anthems and put it into an entire performance
These Guys have the Greatest stageShow on the Planet They invented the Rock Show! Blood Spitting, Explosions, Levitating Drum Sets, Rising Stages simply The BEST
Saw them twice. My make-a-wish wish was to meet them. They did more than what we thought. Great people with a great stage presence, both on and off stage
Should be higher amazing band with amazing songsV6 Comments
Paramore put on a great show. The whole band is energetic, jumping around and what not. Hayley's singing sounds the same as it does on the records and that way that they invite a fan onto the stage to sing 'Misery Business' is incredible.
I'm not sure if I like their live performances more or them in the studio
The energy at the concert is amazingV3 Comments
Always flawless live performances.
Just saw them live. they are great!
Brilliant band! The godfathers of metal!
This is embarrasing, Aerosmith is the greatest live band ever, 41 years performing and they're doing it better than ever and they don't need lights and big shows like U2 and Kiss.
RHCP has recorded some of the greatest riffs. But they also have awesome intros when they play live. A good example is Californication live at slane castle
other than writing some of the greatest songs. They are the best at improvising
You're telling me you don't think RHCP has the most energetic, explosive, passionate, confident, big dick style live performances of all time. Whatever.V5 Comments
"In the Round" is really really really really really really really awesome!
(In the Round is where the Band performs to an audience that surround them instead of just being in front the audience.
If you truly appreciate great musicians, then the ABB is a must see.
One of the best bands to come out of Canada. Adam Gontier does a wicked job performing live as well as the rest of the band
I've seen almost all of these bands live and Muse was my favorite act... until I saw Coldplay. I have never seen such an emotionally charged and passionate show... the lights, the band, and the crowd all singing together in unison brought me to tears. I wasn't SUPER into Coldplay at first but now that I've seen them live I am a lifelong fan. 10/10 best show ever, I would spend my life savings to follow them around on tour and die a happy man.
Chris Martin. Amazing performer to watch live. The band is phenomenal and the music is great. I came into this list expecting Coldplay to be the top 10, if not the top. Their style of performance is truly unique. They also interact with their audiences.
Best concert I've ever seen. The entire band were flawless with every instrument and chris' vocals were wonderful. The fireworks and the light show and the abundance of energy from the entire band that resonnated to the audience was completely amazing. They deserve to be in the top ten.
This should be number one. Watch a video of Charlie Brown live from 2012 or 2016 and you will see why.V5 Comments
Way ahead of their time, I can remember watching Live at Granada 1970 and Blackmore was practically having a seizure on stage, playing in crazy new ways and the crowd didn't know how to react cause they've never seen anything like it.
No better live band in the world. On stage improvisations, Interactions with each other and the audience, trading solos here and there. Unmatched energy and chemistry.
At the height of their career, DP sold more albums and more concert tickets than every act on the planet, there were none better.
Saw them at Mayhem 2012, which was their first tour after Paul Grey died, and it was a very emotional performance in which they poured every ounce of energy, blood and sweat into one of the greatest sets ever performed.
Saw them at Rock on THE RANGE 2015 and just my god...they were absolutely phenomenal. Nobody could ever top them in my personal opinion.
Great band live, can't believe they score so low
They wear masks. Enough said.V3 Comments
Come on guys we all know that My Chemical Romance is a great band and a great live band... I just saw them live and they're great and playful to each of their songs... Gerard way loves to make the crowd so electric as well a Frank and Mikey... Ray is their stabilizer...
Van Halen is top 5 five for sure in regards to live Bands and or Rock and Roll music in general for sure. Come on there is no doubt about it. Energy, great entertainment, and one of the greatest guitar players of all time. Awesome band!
Van Halen is better then ever right now. I mean how can they be only 40? There live sound is unbelievable! Eddie Van Halen has never been better, and with wolfgang singing the back up vocals, its just fabulous.
