Top Ten Concerts and Live Performances

The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Red Hot Chili Peppers (Slane Castle 2003)

This is quite simply musical perfection, and I cannot think of another moment in time I wish I had been at more.

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

When I went it was amazing. It gave me goosebumps from John's back up to the stage presence they had. It was by far the best performance I've ever went to!

For me one of the best concert ever!

43Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax (Sonisphere 2010)

I was there in Bucharest!
IT WAS AMAZING!
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...

44Eminem (New York 2005)
45Iron 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.

46The Beatles (Shea Stadium 1965)

Historically the most important concert in the history of rock music.

The greatest show of the sixties. Need to know, they had only 100 watt Vox amplifiers then.

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.

47Robbie Williams (Knebworth: What We Did Last Summer 2003)

An unforgettable concert, this man created for the stage

Most entertaining concert ever, with greatest performances by all!

Biggest concert ever at Knebworth

Perfection, nothing can compare

48Fleetwood Mac (Rumours Tour 1977)
49Guns N' Roses (The Ritz 1988)
50Led 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.

52Beyonce (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!

Everything about this woman is spectacular.

53Evanescence (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"

54Linkin Park (Webster Hall 2007)

The best concert that I have ever seen in my life! Chester´┐Ż'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!

55Linkin 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.

57Nirvana (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.

this song won a grammy, Nirvana's only grammy

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 - proxYgen

One of the best

58Pearl 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.

Should be in the top 10, because it's Pearl Jam at it's best! Eddie Vedder going crazy, Dave A behind the kit, Mike McCready comes ALIVE, Jeff Ament runs like a chicken with its head cut off and never misses a note, and Stone Gossard, like always, is just smooth, calm and jamming out classic, rock hall of fame worthy, rock.

Best live energy ever, no other show comes close

59Bruce 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

I had to search through a lot to reach Springsteen at number 62. A high percentage of the first 61 couldn't lace Brucie's boots. Mercury voted better before the Beatles...I rest my case.

60Queen (Rock In Montreal 1981)

Another Queen consert. Freddie's voice is good, and the rest of the band members are doing good!
