The Top Ten

X Japan - The Last Live (Tokyo D├┤me - 1997.12.31)
The melody is so beautiful the instrument the guitars the drums the piano are also great. The performance are awesome. But it brings a sad moment because the bands are going to disband.
Amazing, its them at there best E.G the solos and the vocals. And it's so sad as well as its the last time Hide are together and the band as they were and should be now.


X Japan is Great!
X Japan is the God of Japanese Rock!
[Newest]Best concert by far, most of the songs where actually better in the this concert than the ones in the studio, really impressive, everyone was at his prime. It was AMAZING.

2Queen (Wembley Stadium 1986)
There will never be another frontman quite like Freddie Mercury! I saw Queen live in concert five times and my favorite has to be my first concert at the Erlanger Theater in Philadelphia in 1975. A then unknown band called Kansas opened for them. The Erlanger was a small and dated, but classic, venue that was torn down a few years later. That night, Queen was just amazing and we were close enough to almost be able to catch one of the roses that Freddie Mercury threw into the audience at the end of the evening as he stood breathing heavily into the microphone. I felt like he was looking directly at me- or maybe it was my brother who was standing next to me, but no matter. The girl in front of me caught the rose, but I felt like he was throwing it to me. I was 14-years-old and it was my first concert--and an evening I will never forget. Thanks Freddie, Brian, Roger and John!
There are no words that can truly give justice to Queen's performance. They were all AMAZING. Freddy could move the crowd anyway he wanted to and even as I watch this concert today I can't help to sing and dance and clap or anything... They were and still are a kind of magic
Wembley is one of the best concerts ever, but not the best concert of Queen: Live Aid, Rock in Rio and their concerts between 1979 and 1981 are even better! At Wembley the sound wasn't perfect, and Freddy suffered from a soar throat, because of two performances in a row (and probably the first symptoms of HIV/Aids). Queen played also for 300 000 people, two nights in a row at the Rock in Rio festival. And don't forget Live Aid: they outperformed every other artist in front of an audience of 1 billion! Last mentioned concert has been elected the best concert ever.
[Newest]Queen the best band ever!

3Heart (California Jam 2 1978)
Fisher, Fossen, Deroizer, Leese and the Wilson sisters. It just don't get any better than that. The best live act in the history of music, Rock on Ann & Nan.
Heart was the best band at one of the biggest concerts ever. Need I say any more.
A show from MTV is ranked higher than Heart at Cal Jam 2. How can people compair the two. Heart played in front of 300'000 people and were perfect thru out there set. This is CRAZY.

4Michael Jackson (Bucharest Live Tour 1992)
Michael Jackson Bucharest Live Tour is the best concert I have ever seen in my life (have the DVD) I have been to many, many concerts and this is the best. I watch the DVD over and over again. Every time I watch it I see something I missed in an earlier viewing. Michael is the greatest entertainer we have ever had, a gift from heaven unappreciated. RIP Michael You are forever in our hearts. I love you Michael. You are my daytime, my nighttime, my world. See you on the other side I hope. Simmering & Sizzling!


This is the best concert I ever seen in my life even it's only from DVD, gosh I cannot move from my chair watching him, I don't want to miss any of that bit. He is incredible singer, performer, choreographer named it!. Even my two year old girl love watching this concert of Michael Jackson, we watch it together many many many times now ^^ we keep on watching it. We love you Michael and we missed you so much. Thank you for your music. No one can compare to Michael Jackson.
Michal Jackson is a legend, up to him I don't know any musician, singer, dancer, performer,
entertainer and showman.
That is why I voted for MJ.
Also in worldwide, ''Bucharest live tour in 1992'' concert videos would became the most selling, watching and know document in the world.


[Newest]He is the best. No doubt. RIP Michael...

5Woodstock (Bethel, New York 1969)
1/2 a million people in one crowded area, with some of the most amazing artists of that era! Could we have 1/2 a million people together for three days now? NO, everyone would get ticked off and kill each other! At Woodstock, there were no deaths and 2 births. More people left than arrived! Plus, Jimi Hendrix, the Who, Janis Joplin, Grateful Dead, all of these bands changed music! How is this not better than X Japan?


The history of music should be counted before woodstock and after woodstock. Three days that changed the world.
Are you kidding? I wasn't there, but didn't have to be to know THIS was the greatest rock n roll event ever!
[Newest]Way to low most famous concert ever its got jimi hendricks and the who... That is awesome

615th L'Anniversary (L'Arc~en~Ciel - Tokyo Dome Nov 25-26th 2006)
A moment of glory... after nearly two years without any real concert, these guys gave all of themselves to show us what a real performance is... all that because of their 15th anniversary. Amazing... pure magic.
The production of this Live is of such quality that everything is just perfect, from the performance, lightning, sound, wardrobe to the feeling of the Concert.
the best concert of theirs and they prove that they are strong and great. they played their epic songs here esp the rare ones I'm in pain and bye bye


[Newest]This concert is so amazing... I always watching this concert and I am not boring to watching this concert... good luck for l-arc-en-ciel..

7Linkin Park (Live in Milton Keynes, UK 2008)
This is the best live performance I have ever seen. Chester Bennington is just amazing and the only person I know that sings better live than in studio. If you don't like Linkin Park then go to hell.


Linkin Park are the greatest performers of all time. To see their concerts is once in a life time opportunity...!
Breaking The Habit is the best from this concert. When this song ends and Chester finishes the song... He have style like the others from the band.
[Newest]The best live show ever

8The Monterey International Pop Festival (Monterey, Calif. 1967)
The Monterey International Pop Festival, the first rock festival ever held in 1967 two years before Woodstock. Playing at Monterey were The Mamas & the Papas (they also helped organize it), Simon and Garfunkel, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Association, The Animals, Canned Heat, Otis Redding, Country Joe and the Fish, Jefferson Airplane, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and many more. Cool, huh?


9Avenged Sevenfold (Long Beach Arena 2008)
This is a show in long beach and this show was recorded for theyr dvd...


AVENGED SEVENFOLD! BEST. BAND. EVER! They completely rocked this show.. Amazing guitars, drums, bass, and vocals! And, amazing energy from the band and the fans! Great Job Avenged Sevenfold! RIP Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan 1981-2009 foREVer
In the later years this concert will emerge as a classic..
[Newest]Pure music and excellent sound system! + The Rev=Greatest live concert ever.

10Led Zeppelin (Madison Square Garden 1973)
How is this not in the top ten! One of the best proformances of one of the best live bands ever! Just look up "Stairway" from this show on YouTube. Plant is on and Page wrecks it for 2:40 during the solo... With his eyes closed!
The band at their prime. All the best material is shown in this powerhouse performance
Metallica at seattle is still one of my very favorite concerts
The song remains the same. This one of the best live performances of all time, second only to The Who Live at Leeds
[Newest]Greatest live show ever. Best moment: No Quarter

The Contenders

11August Jam (Charlotte Motor Speedway 1974)
Would love so much to see photos of that concert. I was there. I scaled the wall to the press box building to the roof. There was a roof hatch door. We opened it (broke in). We got chairs to place on the roof. I had a leather reclining lazy boy lounger sitting on a press table on the roof of that building. Yes, it did fit through the hatch. I most certainly had the best, most comfortable seat among 250,000 people. Just by luck and a nimble wall climb. I was high as a kite! The only one higher than me (in altitude) were the guys flying the helicopter.
Awesome this hit the top 10. I was 18 and drove from Kingsport, TN with my boyfriend (future 1st husband). I can see all the cars, even now, parked in the grassy median of the highway. It took us awhile to walk to the speedway, but right before we got there people had crashed the gate and we got in free! I remember people in the ticket booths in the bleacher stands selling Mr. Natural. Laugh out loud We went down on the speedway floor and on occasion would walk up to the stage. Remember Emerson, Lake and Palmer and the rotating piano? What a great time. Haven't seen or been to another weekend concert like that since. Better not share everything else we did! It was the 70s, after all.
I was 16 and I hitch hiked from Montgomery Alabama. Most amazing music event of my life. We camped dead center of the quad speakers. What an experience!
[Newest]Best ever allman bros, foghat

12Lollapalooza I (1991)
Living Colour, The Rollins Band, Butthole Surfers, Nine Inch Nails, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Jane's Addiction. Finally a redefinition of what music could and should be.

13Bon Jovi (Wembley 1995)
Wow 3 nights straight you gotta hand it to these guys their awesome. And they don't give up easily don't you think
3 night show and about 50 Songs played. The DVD of this concert is amazing


Best concert then ever! The greatest even of hard rock history! By Paola S.

14Evanescence (Le Zenith, Paris 2004)
My Immortal was the best performance! Especially, when the crowd sang along with her! Also, Bring Me To Life! WoW! Very powerful. Overall, that night Amy and the band sounded "GREAT"

15Nirvana (MTV Unplugged 1993)
Why isn't this in the top 10. Just explain me why.

16Regine Velasquez - R2K the Concert (Manila, Philippines 2000)
the concert marks the first opening salvo for 2000.. and she nailed it! she is one of the greates artist the world has ever produced.. her voice is so powerful the whole country was poured by rains and thunderstorms but she still fill-up the massive Araneta Coliseum for two-nights in high-octane perfomance and glamour! the REAL QUEEN OF ASIAN DIVAS!
Hailed by Wikipedia as the best concert by an asian artist after 25 years.


yes thats true... the only SONG BIRD


17The Beatles (Shea Stadium 1965)
Historically the most important concert in the history of rock music.
The beginning and the escalation of live concerts to all bands.
AND they had so much fun on stage to the noise normally reserved for football.

18L'Arc~en~Ciel (AsiaLive 2005)

19The Mamas & the Papas (Hollywood Bowl 1967)

20Linkin Park (Rock Am Ring 2004)
One of the best Linkin Park concert's ever played, but still not the best! Many Meteora songs had their best performance there.
The best live performance one can ever think of!


The best moment when you see the live of A Place for my head at this concert... Chester Screams and Mike Raps awesome.. Also One of the audience gets change to come to stage..
[Newest]Best linkin park performance by far, I wish I went to it... Well at least I have the dvd

21Pink Floyd (PULSE 1995)
I can't take this list nor this website very seriously if the Pink Floyd PULSE concert isn't at or near the top. Come on? 36?

Here is to never returning to this failed website!
You missed the mark on this one. Should have been way higher. The performance was flawless, the sound excellent and the film/lights & laser show was really unbelievable, even by today's standards. David Gilmour's guitar solo on Comfortably Numb is still considered one of the greatest solos in rock history.
Music that will live on as long as Beethoven, performed by the best live musicians of the genre, with a stage show that trumps everything. I was fortunate enough to see the show on tour in Oslo, and got the terrific add-on of "Marooned". I have been to a lot of concerts and live shows, indoors and out. Nothing has been in the same league as this. As others have commented, this belongs in the top three.
[Newest]Just watch the video of the concert and you would regret to the end of the life that you wasn't there

22Linkin Park (Webster Hall 2007)
The best concert that I have ever seen in my life! Chester┬'s voice is just perfect, the selist is really awesome, it has a lot of great sngs from HT, Meteora and MTM, my three favorite songs were From the Inside, Breaking the Habit and One Step Closer! This performance need to be in first place, it is unbelievable!

23L'Arc~en~Ciel (L'7 Trans ASIA via PARIS Tour 2008)

24The Ozark Music Festival (Sedalia, Mo. 1974)
I was there. Beautiful girls, awesome music, great times
I was there & it was incredible.
Wow, hitch hiked from Pittsbugh, Pa saw a lot. Did a lot

25Metallica (Seattle 1989)
Everything is perfect in this concert..
Drum sound, guitar, and hetfield's beastly fantastic voice!
Includes a fantastic set list, with legendary performances, like when they tear down lady Justice at the end of "... And Justice For All", always sends shivers down my spine.

Greatest Concert Ever.
The prime of Metallica playing one of the greatest concerts! Should be up there with Woodstock!


This is just Metallica at it's best... how could you NOT like this? I mean, the crowd was wild...
[Newest]Metallica in their peak higher than a satellite

26L'Arc~en~Ciel (Grand Cross Conclusion 1999)

27The Rolling Stones (Altamont Speedway 1969)

28Evanescence (Rock Am Ring 2004)

29ABBA (Wembley 1979)

30Deep Purple (Made In Japan 1972)
, Child In Time, if that doesn't make you shiver with emotion, you ain't got no business voting for music. One of THE best performances ever.

31Linkin Park (Summer Sonic 2009)

32The Beatles (Ed Sullivan Show 1964)
I mean this one began the British Invasion, and also created and motivates and make international other bands become bigger in an international way such as the Animals, Rolling Stones, Searchers, and more. Also make the Beatles a known artist in the world, and I Want To Hold Your Hand became number one in the U.S.

33Led Zeppelin (Royal Albert Hall 1970)
Best live band ever no comparison should be no. 1

34Muse (Wembley 2007)
To be honest this concert is a lot beter than some of the ones that are in the top of this list, it was so unique and it should be on the top of the list at least on the first ones. This concert rocks specially the last part of Stockholm Syndrome it was so phenomenal! If you love rock you can't miss this concert, SERIOUSLY
This was the first sellout in the new wembley stadium, and was awesome and fantastic! They made a cd and dvd for the two nights Muse was there! A great concert and one all Muse fans wanted to attend. Listen to it an vote!


Muse make wembley rocks... best ever live performance.. why this band on this stage.. THEY WILL NOT CONTROL US... WE WILL BE VICTORIOUS.. SO COME ON!
[Newest]Muse is the best band ever!

35Guns N Roses (Tokyo 1992)
Best live performance. Patience is the best.
GUNS at their highest, maybe RITZ live 88' launch them and is more representative of the band with its rage and electric atmosphere but livein Tokyo, adding with chorists, keyboards and jazz line offer us a incredible perf!
Axl is crossing all the stage during 3 hours wtout lose his amazing voice
Slash, as usually, is on fire and is simply the best.
Duff, him at his down with drug, is although punk stle
Gilby Clarke and Matt Sorum, Rhythm section make the job
A great show, a great band, great energy, mythic songs which are best live than stusios!

36Linkin Park (Rock Am Ring 2007)

37Jackie Evancho ("Dream With Me In Concert" TV Special; Ringling Museum, 2011)
An 11-year old musical prodigy the likes of which has not been seen for 100 years or more; bikers, truckers, rockers, ex-military and other tough guys brought to tears unashamed. The most beautiful human voice ever recorded.
Jackie isn't even 14 yet, but she's had the most beautiful singing voice in the world for several years now. This concert, done with ├╝ber-producer David Foster, broke pledge records for PBS stations all over the country. Absolutely incredible, even though this was recorded just a few days after her 11th birthday.
An amazing concert by a prodigious young talent, arranged and produced by multiple grammy-winning producer David Foster for THIRTEEN productions, and PBS Great Performances.
[Newest]Have the DVD and it is incredibly good!

38Green Day (Milton Kynes, England)
A fantastic setlist which showed off (at the time) their new songs which were cound to be classics fantastically and some amazing classics which every Green Day fan knows and loves. Brilliant crowd interaction, despite there being 65000 people at once, Green Day managed to still connect and interact with the audience. Also, Billie Joe Armstrong kept showing his arse which earns them brownie points in my book. The transition from King For A Day to Shout was also a great thing to hear and a great decision from the band themselves.
Green Day is way better than queen, way better than linkin park, their seriously no comparison! I been to a link in park concert and a Green Day concert! Green Day is the best live performer I have seen and I have seen a lot of bands! They were so great, they became my favorite band instantly, after I seen how rock legends do it!
AMAZING concert! I wish with all my heart I could've been there... They played to a massive crowd and kicked some serious ass! Green Day absolutely rocks, that's all there is to it

39K.S. Chithra (Dubai 2007)
Brilleint Show
Chithra performance is nice

40Cheap Trick (Tokyo, April 1978)
Where the legendary live album "At Budokan" was made and broke Cheap Trick open internationally.


Brilliaznt... They hit Japanese real hard

41Fleetwood Mac (Rumours Tour 1977)

42Red Hot Chili Peppers (Slane Castle 2003)
I have many words to say about this concert but among them here the Word indicating all the brilliance ---------> Supernatural <------. D 4 ever rhcp
Ireland was awesome
Unbelievable show, easily the best show the Chili Peppers have done, truly a magical performance by a number of measures. Which I could've been there
This is quite simply musical perfection, and I cannot think of another moment in time I wish I had been at more.
[Newest]For me one of the best concert ever!

43Eminem (New York 2005)

44Breaking Benjamin (Stabler Arena 2007)

45Robbie Williams (Knebworth: What We Did Last Summer 2003)

[Newest]Perfection, nothing can compare

46Metallica: S&M - With The San Francisco Symphony Orchestra 1999
I've seen videos of this concert and it's quite the concert!

47Led Zeppelin (Knebworth 1979)
Best led Zeppelin concert ever. I watched it on YouTube and it is the best concert I have ever seen. Everyone was at they'r finest here. Robert plant had rested his voice and sounded like he did in 69-72 when his voice was at his finest unlike when he was overworked in 73-77 in the later years of the band 1978-80 he was rested more between concerts and his voice was more developed so he is at his finest. Jimmy page is rocks as good as ever here and as usual has 100% accuracy. Jimmy also has an amazing guttier solo.
One of the best bands ever. Plant sounds like in his old days and Bonham, Page and Jones play like they always played, pure awesomeness.
Love this show. Classic Zep. Their last stand.

48Iron Maiden (Rock in Rio 2002)
Best metal band of all time and still out their giving their fans all that they have got.
Up the Irons.

49Pink Floyd (The Wall: Live in Berlin 1990)
The one of the best light show, the best live projections (The new wall has a 3D projections tru the whole wall), the best 360 degree sound system, and one of the best cca 20 musicinas:) you can't have more at one place.

A hail of firework explosions, hundreds of large rectangular bricks, crashing planes, enormous puppets, 3D effects. Surely, this is not your average concert. And don't forget the concept of the show is 21 years old!
Come on! They literally built an entire wall and knocked it down the choreography costumes light effects and everything was unreal it was as if you were watching a play I would kill to have been there.
Best one ever that I watch once a month.

50Beyonce (the Beyonce Experience)
Because it's Queen B! Nothing more left to say... She's just a goddess, has the best voice of the singers at the moment and always stays who she is. She has great songs and her performances are perfect. She has wonderful older songs and great new ones - she's just the Queen!
she is amazing at performing live and she is in my opinion the most beautiful women alive, none can dance like her whilst singing at the same time :D Go Beyonce you've got my vote all the way xxxxx
Because she was so amazing and spectacular... The whole thing was done great! The production, costumes, the music, and the choreography was so energetic...
Beyonce makes every people on the concert alive! Wo ho the Beyonce I AM TOUR is more beautiful!
[Newest]The greatest solo performer since Michael jackson

51Linkin Park (Live In Texas 2003)
Kept their energy level up and kept the crowd pumped up throughout the whole show and the performances of Place for my Head and One Step Closer in this concert is unparalleled. Still gives me chills when I hear it and makes you wanna punch something because you feel like you're right there on stage with them rocking out. The audio quality is much better than most live shows out there.

52Nirvana (Live in New York)
How can you listen to this concert and not instantly love it? Some of Nirvana's best work, needs to be in the top 20, at the least.
First, whoever made this list loves linkin park way too much. But this preformance is one of the best in music history. This and RHCP at slane castle


this song won a grammy, Nirvana's only grammy

53T. Rex (Top of the Pops 1971)

54Bruce Springsteen (Parc de la Courneuve 1985)

55Michael Jackson (Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever 1983)
the first public performance when he did the moonwalk. The next day at school even the hard core rockers were in awe and had to admit that they were blown away. Will never forget this moment.
Not only Michael Jackson but the whole concert is just unforgettable
The end of Motown (jacksons) the beginning of The Michael Jackson. When pop had a king.

56Timbaland (MTV Video Music Awards 2007)
With help from Nelly Furtado, Keri Hilson, Justin Timberlake, D.O.E. and Sebastian, Timbaland created magic. Awesome!

57Bruce Springsteen (The Bottom Line 1975)
Bruce Springsteen was great 1975 and he is still a great performer today 36 years later. I dare say, nobody in the history of popular music can match that.
If its Bruce Springsteen, everything just make me feels great

58HIM (Digital Versatile Doom - Live at the Orpheum Theatre - 2008)

59Pearl Jam (Pinkpop 1992)
So great and never seen camera diving like this before. The interview after the concert with Eddie Vedder is also great...
If you think your a Pearl Jam fan then I suggest that you watch videos of this performance. This is grunge at it's best.
Come on! This was the best ever great rock concerts! Captured on camera on the oldest rock festival in the world, PINKPOP! ~!

60AC/DC (Donington Park 1991)
The Best Rock concert ever. All the best songs and Brian Johnson on the singer role. And great solos. And audience was huge.
Nr. 47?
This concert should be in the top 15
It's just 2 full hours of PURE Damn good rock
Amazing brian voice and angus is simply the best
Sorry for bad english I am from the netherlands and 14 years old

62D'erlanger - Rose Tinted View (Hibiya Yagai Ongakudo 2007)
comeback concert of derlanger, I have a download copy of it. amazing


63Foo Figters (Live at Wembley Stadium 2008)
One of the best live sound bands... Their songs give you energy, not to mention that dave is one awesome guy wait the whole thing is awesome
Great show, surprise appearence by jimmy page and john paul jones at the end

64Bon Jovi (Giants Stadium New Jersey 2001)
great concert!
3 night show


65Madonna (Confession Tour 2006)
Epic like always. I doubt any artist can deliver great concert like Madonna.
Her concerts are fantastic! Her Blond Ambition Tour is a revolutionary concert.
No one comes close to Madonna her shows are always epic. But this one stands out
[Newest]Flawless production and performance. Her best concert hands down.

66Rush (Exit...Stage Left)

67Rammstein (Live aus Berlin 1998)
Rammstein is a band that is actually better in concert. That paired with their amazing pyrotechnics leave little to wonder at.

68Gladys Knight (VH1 Divas Live)

69Bob Seger (Cobo Hall 1975)
Seger in his prime recorded in front of his hometown Detroit rock fans

70Iron Maiden (Long Beach Arena 1985)
This list is a joke, all these pathetic bands above the Gods of Metal. Iron Maiden are the hardest working band ever, and their being pushed aside by these crummy bands.

71Jimi Hendrix (Woodstock 1969)
Because he performed star spangled banner

72Nirvana (Live at Reading 1992)
I was there - those muppets were boring and we were ripped off, I can remember the sound and the stag performance was no better than band that just played together for the first time.
Just the chills it sends down your spine from beginning to end make it an unforgettable performance.
Awesome from beginning to end :D Kurt even plays Star Sprangled Banner


73Michael Jackson (Super Bowl XXVII Halftime Show 1993)

74The Who (The Kids Are Alright 1979)
THE BEST rock performance in history by a single act, well maybe with the exception of L Z


75The Who (Leeds 1970)
One of the best live albums of all time. Should be way higher on this list

76K.S.Chithra (Royal Albert Hall)

77Daft Punk (Alive 2007)
Great performance, live remixes, and a Grammy for this album. And to top it all off, the amazing encore performance of Human After All/Together/Music Sounds Better with You/One More Time/Aerodynamic. Once you listen to this, you will understand why this needs to be higher on the list.
Amazing concert, new remix created just for the event and even better than the original music.
Should be higher but at least it is the highest Electronic Act which is where it should be.

78Jackie Evancho ("Awakening" TV Special, Longwood Gardens, 2014)
With guest Cheyenne Jackson.

79311 (311 Day 2004)
68 songs... 5 hours long... great show

80Coldplay (Rock in Rio 2011)
Most entertaining group, who have produced great music.
Fix you is great

81Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax (Sonisphere 2010)
I was there in Bucharest!
First Day : Manowar
Second Day : Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer and Metallica
Third Day : Alice in Chains, Mastodon, Rammstein
Just AMAZING, the crowd was singing and jumping everywhere...

82The Rolling Stones (Hyde Park, 1969)

83The Doors (Hollywood Bowl 1968)
One of the best concerts of the Doors. Lysergic frontman Jim Morrison on fire and good work from the band. Unbeliable The End version

84Elton John (The Troubadour 1970)

85John Mayer (Where The Light Is, Live in LA 2008)
"Free Fallin'" was absolutely unreal. Should be number 1 in my opinion

86Jackie Evancho (Music of the Movies, June 13, 2012)
That was an amazing evening.
Jackie's second PBS Great Performances special, recorded at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles. Guest performers accompanying Jackie included Jumaane Smith (trumpet), The Tenors, Caroline Campbell (violin), and her brother Jacob.

87Cream (Royal Albert Hall 2005)

88Bob Marley & The Wailers (The Lyceum 1975)

89The Who (Isle of Wight 1970)
classic that really got me liking the who more... check it out


90The Eagles (Melbourne 2005)
Heard of Hotel California/Desperado before I saw this concert. After I saw it I suddenly became a die-hard fan of Eagles! And especially Joe Walsh. Like Glenn Frey says it; Joe is an interesting bunch of guys! But about the concert; Technically perfect, audio/video:10/10 (yes, the bluray is the best I have ever seen, unbelievable that it is recorded in 2004/2005), the solos, all of them singing. A definite MUST WATCH
Bluray: Top notch video/audio quality, perfect technical performance and extremly good setlist with the best solo songs from the time they were split up (14 years! )
Those of you that love the Eagles, Don Henley, Glenn Frey or specially Joe Walsh, this is a crazy concert you will watch many many times. Just like me.

91AC/DC (Live at River Plate 2009)
The Rock veterans came back and showed everyone how the big boys do it. This is one hell of a concert, amazing crowd combined with an amazing band!

92The Band: The Last Waltz (Winterland 1976)
I saw the special on PBS years ago and just fell in love with The Band. Their music was incredible, just so real and down to earth. You can tell by the who's who of musicians at the time that showed up to perform with them that they were highly appreciated by their piers.
It would have been amazing to have been there.

93Five (Invincible Tour - Live In Manchester)

94Motley Crue (Carnival of Sins 2005)
A spectacular circus gone bad set under a huge tent with a mischievous midget, seductive aerialists and demonic clowns.

95K.S.Chithra (Muskat 2009)

96K.S.Chithra (L.A. 2008)

97Yanni (Live at the Acropolis 1993)
How come you guys missed this angelic concert... The best ever in the history of music!

98Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert (1992)
Hands down the greatest energy and enthusiasm from the audience and the artists involved. A fitting tribute that is unmatched to date. An emotional, yet conclusive gig demonstrating that Freddie was not only one of the most loved and respected musicians for that time, but also had such a powerful voice that none of his peers alike could even remotely compete with.
How can this be ranked so low?!
3 hours of epicness
Everything about this concert was perfect
(besides axl rose)
A lot of stars + Queen songs = perfect concert

99Bob Dylan (Newport Folk Festival 1965)

100Ted Nugent (California Jam 2 1978)
