Bands With The Best Live Performancesrichie4life
The Contenders: Page 5
Journey is well known for their extraordinary live performances in the seventies and eighties. The sound quality was near perfection every time, and usually better than the studio recorded versions. If in doubt, listen to "Captured," recorded in 1980, or "Live in Houston," recorded in 1981.
Steve Perry's vocals were always crystal clear, not lyrically, but melodically. The heights that he reached with his voice in every concert, on their tough schedule, are awe inspiring and almost unnatural.
Steve perry sounds just as good if not better live than he does in the studio. They are just an incredible band to see live.
They respect their fans... And one of the best performers
People who bash them have CLEARLY never seen them live. The dude sounds just like he does in the studio and they keep the energy going the whole time. A must see for anybody even if you don't like the band.
I can't believe no one has ever even thought of placing this band in the top ten list. They are, there is no other word for it, AMAZING. Especially live. Trevor Mcnevon has a simply splendid voice. The guitar riffs are totally superb. It is one of the most underrated bands. It deserves to be in the same league as the other top bands.
I have seen Korn multiple times over the past 10 years and EVER SINGLE TIME they knock it out of the park! My husband has seen a lot more main stream metal concerts than I have and thought I was exaggerating Korn's awesomeness. This past summer was his first experience with Korn and he agreed they crank it up and create an energy that is just something that I haven't yet been able to compare to another band. We are not HUGE Korn fans, they just do a very, very good job in concert. Thanks, Korn! See you next year!
One of the best and heaviest bands going today.
How is this band down here? they should be above avenged sevenfold at least, at music festivals this is the band that get the crowd going nuts more than almost every other band every time
I can't believe they aren't even on this list. The Dire Straits were masters playing their songs live. A live song was always different than before, and some songs were double the length when they were played live. They made every second count.
I never take any vote based charts seriously, because so many heroes are overlooked, not unlike these guys... I feel bad for people who haven't seen these guys perform live, because they are truly amazing) 119 places to low if u ask me.
I just saw Alice Cooper live last night and let me just say, it was amazing. There was not a dull moment with Alice onstage.
It has got to be Cooper. He set the standard for all theatrical rock shows. The guy is still an amazing live act. - hardrockfanatic
What is Alice Cooper doing At %53? He invented the live show!
Saw him with Motley Crue and Alice Cooper destroyed the Crue.V 1 Comment
Being at 63 is a DISGRACE to rock fans everywhere. Simply epic performances and light shows. And, where is Gabriel on the list?
simplement is the best band in the world.
in 2007 they were the best band live in the world.
sorry for my inglish
Very very special live performances.
They are better than almost all of the bands in this list.
The best band I've ever seen live...and it's not even close. I've never seen a vocalist that compares, either screaming or singing, to Chino Moreno.V 1 Comment
Just watch their live set from Reading in 2013, outstanding!
Leeds 2013-pretty damn good!
Most underrated live band of all time
