Top Ten Concerts and Live Performances

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Queen (Live Aid 1985)

20 minutes that changes music. How this is ranked so low?!?!?

How the hell is this not number 1?


62 Nirvana (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

63 Pearl 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

64 Linkin 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.

65 Bruce 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.

On July 19, 1988, Springsteen held a concert in East Germany that attracted 300,000 spectators. Journalist Erik Kirschbaum has called the concert "the most important rock concert ever, anywhere", in his 2013 book Rocking the Wall. Bruce Springsteen: The Berlin Concert That Changed the World. I year later the wall was down. This is the most important concert ever

If its Bruce Springsteen, everything just make me feels great

Went to Bruce Springsteen last night. Him and his E Street band are amazing.

66 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

67 Timbaland (MTV Video Music Awards 2007)

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