Greatest Songs Performed Live
The Top Ten
This is one of the performances that made me a lifetime fan of Miss Jackie Evancho. Simply stunning.
To say this is astonishing would be an understatement. Audience members who are not in tears by the end often can't remember breathing. - BobG
One has to see her performance of this sone from her first PBS Great Performances special: "Dream With Me - In Concert", available on YouTube, as well as CD, DVD, and Blu-ray. Taiko drums, traditional Chinese instruments, and full orchestra, with David Foster emcee and musical director. - Trancas
Nobody hits those high notes as Jackie does.
I have attended live concerts with LZ, along with the Stones, Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Michael Jackson, Sinatra, Beach Boys, Eric Clapton, and even Creedence Clearwater Revival. Yes they were/are all great. Jackie Evancho is absolutely on their level as a performer, that's why real, actual people vote for her.
Stairway to Heaven @ Earls Court (1975)... Greatest solo of all time...
. Why do everyone on TheTopTens think Jackie Evancho is the best.
Obviously Jackie Evancho is number 1. - 445956
Jackie sings this live on Fernando Varela's PBS Special. Outstanding performance of a difficult Italian tribute to Enrico Caruso! - BobG
Her amazing performance of lyrics so intricate with her wonderful voice makes me listen again and again.
Captivating, heartbreakingly beautiful
I love this song and the way it is performed
I love the fact that the sample features a live version! I wish I was in that crowd! - Metal_Treasure
I like the live versions much more than the studio version.
Checkout Jackie's performance of this on Britain's Got Talent, easy to find on YouTube. Her performance that night was unreal. If you watch the video, try to remind yourself its being sung by an 11 year old. Unbelievable. She's simply the best there is.
Jackie still sings this today, at age 17. For six years, she has been getting standing ovations for her performances of this difficult piece. - BobG
From her Dream With Me album / Dream With Me - In Concert PBS Great Performances special, available on CD, DVD, and Blu-ray. See the YouTube video.
Fan Favorite amazing live
Made in Japan. Oh my god. - vr46
As performed "Live" on the Ed Sullivan Show in February of 1964; the most important live performance in the history of rock music.
Great song live. Very powerful. - SOX3005
This song really comes to life when played live. I can't decide if I prefer the studio version or live version, as they're both wonderful. I recommend listening to this from Pink Floyd's live album P.U.L.S.E.
It is true the man was stabbed to death, but he had a loaded Smith & Wesson.357 revolver pointed right at Mick Jagger when it happened, so it was somewhat justified.
A man was stabbed to death right in front of the stage when the Stones performed this live at the Altamont Music Festival.
Filmed at Wacken Open Air, Germany on August 1st, 2008- incredible - calboye
