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.
The crowd is always with em and Tommy Lee is a show beast and even James the rev sullivan said it was one of the best live shows he has ever seen.
Guns N' Roses favorite band but as far as live performances go can't believe motley isn't higher
Saw Mötley Crüe live last night. They were great. They had great sound quality and everything
The Prince of Darkness should be WAY HIGHER (On the list not drugs)
From bitimg bats heads off to mooning the crowd to playing ozzfest with a broken leg while detoxing. Ozzy would do anything for his fans and has also been around longer than anyone on this list evan led zepplin and queen and he's still going 1967-. Did anyone else do that? Plus hg can actually sing
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.V 5 Comments
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
Very insane live, and very impressive!V 3 Comments
They're not always the flashiest live performers, but in each one of their live shows, they put so much emotion in their songs and they end up sounding better than pretty much any other band live. A live performance isn't all visual, you know. - LoganR93
I saw them on the broken leg tour and it was amazing! They Gould be in the top ten so everyone vote for Foo Fighters
This description isn't needed, it's the foo fighters for gods sake! - TheDanSyndromeV 1 Comment
They are clearly the best band ever live. No other band can release live albums that sell millions then put them on a studio recording and sell more. The question is why are people so jealous of Dave Matthews popularity because he is for white males only. I forgot the band is mostly black, and he deserves the credit for driving his poetic message. 80 is a joke and he deserves better.
Not many bands can successfully deliver a different show every time. The Dave Matthews Band has successfully done this since their first show and continue to do it every time.
Dave Matthews Band is simply the best band ever to see live
This isn't even a question. Everyone knows this whether your a dead head or not. They were the best live band ever and didn't even qualify as concerts. These were life changing "events" each and every one of the 2300+ shows. They have performed for more people than any other band EVER.. not even close.
There's just no comparison. When thet were on it's a whole other level of music. None of the bands discussed here could ever do what they did.
Let's clarify something. I'm a music lover and listen to everything from Glenn Miller to Venom... there is and never will be another band like the dead. I've seen most of the bands on this list and it should be separate. Incredible concerts for sure, but the dead we're hands down life changing, earth moon and sky changing events. On drugs and off didn't matter. Ask anyone who has ever seen them and they will tell you the same and they're are tens of millions+
Yes, would step and AC/DC maiden the stones queen Metallica all be here? Of course and mind blowing but still NOT a Dead show. It's it's own category all together
Simply the best performance I've ever seen
They played even better than the album version
The sfx was great
The lighting and such were overwhelming
And they get along with the crowd well
Well, I almost lost words to describe their performance
If you don't believe me just check it out for yourself
PT should be top 5 easy! What is wrong with people?
Linkin Park LIVE haha. Porcupine Tree blow them away!V 1 Comment
Great live, album quality performance, enhanced versions of songs, progressively better lights/lasers as show goes on.
Simply the greatest band ever. Best live performances... Will literally take you away. Tool is life.
Seeing "Stinkfist" live will send you into a seizure. - IaChoquette311
How is this not higher? Best live show ever!V 2 Comments
Playing live in Holland has to be one of the best concerts ever! Daron's guitar stopped working, so he announced "This sucks and so do we," then got the crowd to boo them and give them the finger. And also, unlike some other bands, they actually played their songs well (when the guitar worked anyway) - Porcupine
Trust me they're the best at this. They can be so humorous on stage at times, like when Daron gets the crowd excited, Serj dances uniquely feeling the melody of the song, and they can actually perform unlike other bands.
