Top Ten Concerts and Live Performances

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Red Hot Chili Peppers (Slane Castle 2003)

Best concert I've ever watched. Chad Smith is the most stellar drummer of our time. Flea is an unparalleled bassist. Frusciante was at his prime. And Kiedis sings on point (rare). Best performance I've seen.

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

Simply perfect!

52 Iron 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.

53 The 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.

54 Led 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.

55 Guns N' Roses (The Ritz 1988)
56 Led Zeppelin (Boston Tea Party 1969)
57 Beyonce (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.
