Top Ten Concerts and Live Performances

The Contenders: Page 4

61 T. Rex (Top of the Pops 1971)
62 Evanescence (Rock Am Ring 2004)
63 Gary Moore Wild Frontier live at Montreaux 1987
64 Michael 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.

The end of Motown (jacksons) the beginning of The Michael Jackson. When pop had a king.

Not only Michael Jackson but the whole concert is just unforgettable

65 Timbaland (MTV Video Music Awards 2007)

With help from Nelly Furtado, Keri Hilson, Justin Timberlake, D.O.E. and Sebastian, Timbaland created magic. Awesome!

66 AC/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

Best concert ever it rocks with all of their things set up like the giant head, giant rosie, and giant bell an amazing concert that should be #1

This should be under the Top 20! Nonstop Power from beginning to end with AC-DC in their Prime! Incredible Sound and an unbelievable Show!

67 HIM (Digital Versatile Doom - Live at the Orpheum Theatre - 2008)
68 U2 (Madison Square Garden 2002)

I have seen them 3 times live. They put on some show.

69 D'erlanger - Rose Tinted View (Hibiya Yagai Ongakudo 2007)

comeback concert of derlanger, I have a download copy of it. amazing - ronluna

70 Foo 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

71 Daft 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.

72 Rush (Exit...Stage Left)

the best concert of all time, including progressive rock anthems such as 'tom sawyer' and 'closer to the heart'.

Even though I prefer newer concerts, this one tops the charts.

73 Bon Jovi (Giants Stadium New Jersey 2001)

great concert!
3 night show - richie4life

74 Rammstein (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.

In my opinion, Rammstein is one of the greatest bands ever with practicaly every song of theirs being unique in its own way and they are definitely the greatest band live. Their music has transcended any perceived language barrier out there.

75 Madonna (Confession Tour 2006)

My girlfriend made me go to one of her shows a few years ago. By far the worst concert I was ever at and the shortest performance by a headline act I have ever seen (while we were slowly making our way home we could see her helicopter leaving 10 minutes after show) My girlfriend apologised after it was so crap.

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.

Flawless production and performance. Her best concert hands down.

76 Nirvana (Live at Reading 1992) Nirvana (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 - nivvAna
