Top 10 Bands with the Best Live Performances

The Top Ten
1 Queen Queen are an English rock band formed in London in 1970. The original lineup was Freddie Mercury (lead vocals, piano), Brian May (guitar, vocals), Roger Taylor (drums, vocals), and John Deacon (bass guitar, vocals). Before forming into Queen, Brian May and Roger Taylor had played together in a band named Smile. Freddie Mercury was a fan of Smile and encouraged them to experiment with more elaborate... read more

You can't talk about bands who have the best live performances without having Queen in at least the Top 5 and I'm glad to see it at Number 1. All 4 original members are absolute legends. John Deacon and Roger Taylor are absolutely underrated as a bassist and drummer respectively, who both created some of the most iconic riffs and beats known to rock music. Brian May is one of the greatest guitarists of all time, playing an instrument that he and his dad built themselves when he was a teenager and showing a mastery of various different guitar styles that the band was able to incorporate into their discography. And you absolutely cannot forget about the prodigy on the piano, the three-octave vocal powerhouse, the genius behind Bohemian Rhapsody, a flawless performer, as well as the most iconic frontman of all time; Freddie Mercury. If all of the above isn't enough to sway anyone's opinion by itself, I have two words left for you: Live Aid.

2 Metallica Metallica is an American Heavy/Thrash Metal band formed in 1981. The original lineup was James Hetfield (Vocalist and Rhythm guitarist), Dave Mustaine (Lead Guitar), Lars Ulrich (Drums), Ron McGovney (Bassist). The group came into mainstream from their Self-Titled album and the hit single "Enter Sandman"... read more

Its true bon jovi and queen are brilliant during the live performances... But Linkin Park above Metallica impossible. Kirk hammett is awesome as usual and so are James Hetfields vocals... His variation is simply brilliant. The live songs like creeping death, for whom the bell tolls, ride the lightning are just too good!
Metallica rocks!

Metallica is always searching new Ways to make the impossible posible, they take 80's Back every show, just amazing. Great in every single way sound, lights, effects. Just take a look to Concerts like Binge and purge live in Seattle or The full Arsenal. , /

I like to watch their live performances. They're the best live acts alongside Led Zep, Queen and AC/DC. I don't get LP, they never sounded better than their studio recordings.

3 Iron Maiden Iron Maiden are an English Heavy Metal band formed in Leyton, East London, in 1975 by bassist and primary songwriter Steve Harris. The most critically acclaimed period for the band was from 1983-1989. With vocalist Bruce Dickinson, bassist Steve Harris, lead guitarist Dave Murray, rhythm guitarist Adrian Smith, and drummer Nicko McBrain. Smith left the band in 1989 and was replaced by Janick Gers... read more

I don't think anybody who has seen Maiden live within the past ten years would disagree that they should at least be in the top three. Not only have their performance skills gotten better with age but somehow age doesn't seem to affect their high energy levels either. Even if heavy metal isn't your thing, I can't believe Iron Maiden isn't at least in the top ten.

Always imitated, never replicated is the theme that's been going with Iron Maiden since their inception back in the mid 70's. Unforgettable hooks, melodies, stage presence and an uncanny ability to always sound and perform better live is nothing short of amazing.
There's no question about it, they are the greatest band & live band of all time!

Without a doubt, the best Live performers out there. Always flawless, the crowd is always involved. Bruce's vocals reach new highs, the guitarists shred. Janick Gers is a fabulous showman, and their stage presence is unmatched. Very few bands sound as good live, and even fewer sound better. Iron Maiden surpasses both of these. Live, they are unmatched.

4 Linkin Park Linkin Park is an American rock band formed in Agoura Hills, California, in 1996. The members currently include Mike Shinoda (vocals, keyboards, rhythm guitar), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums). Linkin Park are associated with a mixture of Alternative Rock, Hip Hop and Techno. Some of their influences include Nine Inch Nails, Deftones, The... read more

Linkin Park must top the list. Most bands today do not perform as good as they do in their album auditions. But LP truly outperforms everyone with their phenominal music and they would even perform better in live concerts through improvisations. LP times the song sequences perfectly and we've seen the crowd blend with their music every time..

This is band is perfect live. They don't use all that computer bull crap like some of these new popular bands. They use their on vocals and their own creativity. I respect a band who is really good live and I give this band all my respect because of how good they are live and how good their music is.

Hey what the hell. Linkin Park should top of the list. They are best live act for ever. And received so many live act of the year award. So please vote for them. And I'm personally requested to Linkin Park please coming to India. A million of fans waiting for you. Even if your not with us, but we are with you.

5 Muse Muse are an English alternative rock band from Teignmouth, Devon, formed in 1994. The members are Matt Bellamy (lead vocal, lead guitar, piano, keyboard), Dom Howard (drums, percussion) and Chris Wolstenholme (bass, backing vocals). They've won several awards including 5 MTV Awards, 8 NME Awards, 2 Brit Awards, and 2 Grammy Awards.

Why the heck did I have to scroll all the way down the page to find Muse?! This is ridiculous, I saw them in Washington this year and it was one of the most spectacular things I have ever seen. Scratch that, it was the most amazing thing I have ever seen. Matt, Dom, and Chris are bleeding with talent! If one was to compare their recorded songs and their live ones, they would throw the studio albums in the trash and listen to the live for the rest of their lives. That is in no way because their recoded version sucks, in fact it is stunning, but compared to their live performance it is definitely inferior. Muse is the best.

Muse puts on really cool concerts. I attended a Muse concert last Tuesday - or perhaps it was Wednesday. I have a bad memory - and it was awesome. At the beginning, drones flew out, which makes sense since their latest album is called Drones. The venue was filled with lights. It was an amazing spectacle.

They also had these cool sheets hanging from the ceiling onto which they projected various images. For example, during their performance of The Handler, they projected an image of a person with hands and strings. The strings appeared to be connected to two members of Muse, making it look as if the projected figure was controlling them. If this description doesn't make sense to you, I recommend checking out a video of it on YouTube. The band continued to impress us with more projections and lights throughout the show.

Toward the end, confetti was shot into the crowd, adding another layer to the fantastic light show. Beyond the visuals, the band's musical skills are exceptional. They sounded just like their album recordings, and sometimes, they even sounded better live.

My dad and I attended the concert, and we both agreed it exceeded our expectations. It was so good that my art teacher, who also attended the concert, wore Muse merchandise to school the next day. She had on a Muse shirt, necklace, and earrings. In art class, we discussed our concert experiences. Another student in the class had attended a One Direction concert the same night. She claimed it was better than the Muse show, but both my art teacher and I strongly disagreed.

The next day, my art teacher was checking out live recordings of Muse performances from other shows. As I mentioned before, Muse is incredibly talented at live performances, and their shows are a sight to behold. I've also been to a Foo Fighters concert and seen Ed Kowalczyk, formerly of the band Live, perform. While those shows were great, they couldn't compare to the experience of seeing Muse live.

6 AC/DC AC/DC are a Australian hard rock band, formed in November 1973 by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, who continued as members until Malcolm's illness and departure in 2014 . They were fronted by Bon Scott until his untimely death due to alcohol poisoning in 1979, after which they hired Brian Johnson to front the band. Commonly referred to as a hard rock or blues rock band.

AC/DC. No. 25.
I'm sorry. Something is clearly wrong.
No band on this planet can COMPARE to AC/DC's pure, raw energy on stage! Back in the Bon Scott days, they were epic! Bon was one of the best frontman of all time, and Angus was incredible. Angus was the guitarist we all imagined when we were little kids. But then we grow up to find out that it's not in a guitarist's nature to go absolutely crazy, headbanging and rocking out on stage.
Except for Angus Young.

And that, friends, is why AC/DC is, was and will be the best live act you will EVER see.

Linkin Park at number 1. Puh-leez...

Led zeppelin was a terrible live band overall because jimmy page often screwed it up. Angus young never does that, but he always puts up a good show, and they can really get the crowd going. There's nothing like AC/DC live!

Simply go on YouTube, type in Highway to Hell, and watch the music video. Live performance in Argentina. I won't say anything else, just watch it.

7 Rammstein Rammstein is a German Neue Deutsche Härte and Industrial Metal band consisting of Till Lindemann (vocals), Richard Kruspe (guitar), Paul Landers (guitar), Oliver Riedel (electric bass), Christoph Schneider (drums) and Christian Lorenz (keyboard), that formed in 1994 in Berlin .

Rammstein is one of Germany's most successful music artists, and one of the few that gained notable chart success... read more

Never been to stadium concert b4, couldn't really justify the expense. Was hanging around the stadium on friday at my home town and for the 1st time felt I was on the wrong side of the fence. Got the ticket to sold-out concert from a tout to a bad seat for saturday show and was blown away. Got a Feuerzone ticket for next summer in a neighbouring country and seriously considering another one. Or perhaps I should go to a gig in a german speaking country...

Rammstein live is the best live rock opera ever. The performance, the effects, the brilliant light show and the dynamics are second to none. You don't just watch a show you feel it. You could go to a show and not even like music and still be blown away. If you have seen them live other live bands just don't seem as exciting any more.

Rammstein are the most incredible band I've seen live, they really deserve to be number 1! It's more of a performance than a gig, you just can't beat them live. Trust me, you won't get bored at a Rammstein show, even if you don't like Rammstein's music.

8 Kiss Kiss is an American hard rock band formed in New York City in January 1973 by Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons and the band's original manager, Lew Linet.

Just like Alice Cooper, KISS is the best show on earth I mean pyro, lights, blood, costumes, smoke, skulls! I dare you to find another band that can mix all with fun rock anthems and put it into an entire performance

KISS should be a LOT higher what could be better than a band playing rock songs while flying, breathing fire and dribbling blood!

Saw them twice. My make-a-wish wish was to meet them. They did more than what we thought. Great people with a great stage presence, both on and off stage

9 The Who The Who is an English rock band formed in London, England in 1964. The most recognizable lineup was Roger Daltrey (lead vocals), Pete Townshend (guitar), John Entwistle (bass guitar), and Keith Moon (drums). They are best known for their live performances and hit songs Baba O'Riley, My Generation, and Won't Get Fooled Again. Some noted achievements were their rock operas, Tommy (album), Quadrophenia... read more

See them 6 times! First time was at The Forum in 2004 and I was right at the front! Absolutely amazing experience. I've also seen them at the o2 twice - once on the Quadrophenia Tour2, twice at Wembley Arena and twice at Hyde Park of which the recent one in June 15 was the best of the bunch. I'd have loved to have seen them with Moon and Entwistle but even 'The Two' as they are now are outstanding performers and nobody plays guitar like Townshend! Phenomenal live band. Add to that Live at Leeds and Isle of Wight and you can hear they were clearly the greatest ensemble there has ever been!

The Who, in my opinion, define the way a live rock performance should be done! Powerfully played and sung with a lot of passion and feeling!

With loud, thrilling, exciting, badass and overall, some of the best live performances of all time, they could make Jason Voorhees cry like a baby and even bury Chuck Norris alive! The Who were to rock music exactly what Fyodor Dostoevsky was for literature and Steven Spielberg for filmmaking!

This legendary band consists of Roger Daltrey, an excellent frontman and flawless singer with a high vocal range, Pete Townshend, a unique guitar player and a brilliant songwriter, who tends to do insane things while on stage, John "Thunderfingers" Entwistle, a.k.a. The Ox, one of the greatest and most talented bassists of all time (he's just too damn good to describe with my own words, truly a one of a kind bass guitar player) and Keith Moon, a.k.a. Moon The Loon, the mad, wild genius on the drum kit! They made some of the most groundbreaking and immense rock songs and albums of all time and were, overall, a great studio band, but when these 4 musicians performed on stage, they were a totally unstoppable force of power you can't find anywhere else!

What else do you want? How could you hate an amazing band like this?

This is my opinion on one of the greatest bands of all time. I'm sorry if my comment was too long.

10 Slipknot Slipknot is an American metal band formed in Des Moines, Iowa in 1996. The band is best known as one of the pioneers of the New Wave of American Alternative Metal during the late 1990s - 2000s and are distinguishable by the band's clothing choices, consisting of black/red jumpsuits and horror inspired masks... read more

Saw them at Mayhem 2012, which was their first tour after Paul Grey died, and it was a very emotional performance in which they poured every ounce of energy, blood and sweat into one of the greatest sets ever performed.

I have seen Slipknot live three times; most recently in Des Moines, Iowa (the bands home town) in August of 2016. THEY WERE AMAZING. The entire band gave so much and with Corey Taylor who is such an amazing frontman at the helm Slipknot is such an unstoppable live band. They should be top ten 100%. If you do not believe me search "Slipknot live at Sonisphere 2011".

Saw them at Rock on THE RANGE 2015 and just my god...they were absolutely phenomenal. Nobody could ever top them in my personal opinion.

The Contenders
11 Pink Floyd Pink Floyd are an English progressive rock band formed in 1965 in London, England. They achieved international acclaim with their progressive and psychedelic music. The band consisted of 5 members - David Gilmour (Vocals and Guitar), Syd Barrett (Vocals and Guitar), Nick Mason (Drums), Roger Waters (Vocals and Bass), and Richard Wright (Vocals and Keyboard). Barrett was replaced by Gilmour in 1968... read more

I've been to several hundred concerts and have seen Floyd 3 times and Rogers Waters twice and they just aren't a show; they're a theatrical production. Hands down all in my Top 10, with David Bowie, Zep, Queen, the Boss and, most recently, Muse. Flo and the Machine have also jumped into the Top 20. However, the show as a whole may provide a different list than the best performers or lead singer category.

What where is zeppelin. Bands like 30 seconds to mars and linkin park above zeppelin and Floyd. They both have sucked in some reunions but you people must have short term memories cause those 2 are the best live performers of all time

If you think Pink Floyd is a bad band you have not seen pulse or herd of Dark side of the moon plus they out did them selves on pulse live IT was amazing!

12 Green Day Green Day are an American pop punk/punk rock band formed in East Bay, California in 1987. The members include Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals and guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), Tré Cool (drums) and Jason White (guitar). Green Day are associated with punk rock, pop punk and alternative rock. Some of their influences include The Ramones, Sex Pistols, NOFX, and Bad Religion. They are best known for their... read more

Admittedly, I haven't been to a lot of big concerts(I grew up in the middle of nowhere) but out of all of them, there's an energy with Green Day that's impossible to match. The emotion that Billie is able to consistently put into his singing is on point, Mike still flawlessly plays his most famous bass lines, Tre just keeps getting better with his drums. Combine that with perfect lighting, decade defining songs, some of the most energetic crowds since Queen played at Live Aid, and you have a one of a kind experience that is absolutely addicting and life-changing.

Green Day has over 300 songs, and at the age of 41 has more energy then any of those bands in their prime! I have seen 30-40 bands, Green Day was the best by far! Green Day was probably in my bottom 10 favourites but after the concert, insistently became my favorite! Now I can't get enough of them! Nobody brings the intensity like Green Day, loud as hell, crazy energy, awesome crowd interaction, could hold a note as long as anyone, could scream with anyone, plays guitar behind his head, loyal fan base that also brings the energy! God for sure!

13 Bon Jovi Bon Jovi is a hard rock/pop rock band formed in 1983, which had a streak of successful albums in the late 1980s. The band originally consisted of lead vocalist Jon Bon Jovi, guitarist Ritchie Sambora (left in 2013), bassist Alec John Such (left in 1994), keyboard David Bryan, and drummer Tico Torres. The band's most famous album is Slippery When Wet, released in 1986, and had multiple hit singles... read more

Just the entertainment they throw in. I haven't seen a live performance as of yet but videos I have seen are amazing, December 2010 however. Bon Jovi in Melbourne and I'm there

What tell? The most best band performer of the time! Energy, very good songs, generous with fans, generous with all of the world! I love your music, your kind, your hearts! BON JOVI FOREVER! And I hope, early in France!

Drives me nuts when I see Bon Jovi on any "greatest" list. Absolute drivel.

14 U2 U2 are an Irish rock band from Dublin. Formed in 1976, the group consists of Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen Jr. U2's early sound was rooted in post-punk but eventually grew to incorporate influences from many genres of popular music. Throughout the group's musical pursuits, they have maintained a sound built on melodic instrumentals. Their lyrics, often embellished with spiritual imagery,... read more

U2 is far better then #9, who still sells out there concerts, and not only in the US, but the whole world. I won't talk bad about the other bands because in their own right are great bands, and of course its all about personal opinion and taste, but what band these days can still put out good work, good songs and great concerts, only a hand full and "U2" is among a hand full... GOD BLESS U2 FOR EVER!... E Moreno

U2 are simply a superior live act to most bands - even their biggest shows filled with their biggest songs do what other artists in this list cannot, and make fans feel like it's just them and the band. This is what live music should achieve.

Literally puts on a show, the I&E your wasn't just a regular concert, but a story that was told with music that's lasted for over 30 years. Not only the best live act of all time but the biggest band in the world right now.

15 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American heavy metal band, that was formed 1999 in California. Their longest lineup of members was M. Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums).

Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan (Drums), their most notable drummer, passed away in 2009, being temporarily replaced by Mike Portnoy, who was replaced... read more

Metallica number 2, how funny. Hatefield just sucks at live. Lp and queen are great but no near where to this guys. So before voating just see a live show of them. I am sure you will give your vote to them. Greatest band ever, no offense. A7x, my love, my heart, my inspiration.

Why are they only number 10!? Seriously!? They are amazing live, maybe even better than on their albums. They put on a good show and they sound awesome, simple as that. Don't believe me? Check out their concert live in the LBC.

Their show was the greatest thing I've ever seen in my life! The pyro was amazing and the quality of their music was just as good or even better than on their albums... A7X foREVer!

16 Guns N' Roses Guns N' Roses is an American hard rock band from Los Angeles formed in 1985. The classic lineup, as signed to Geffen Records in 1986, consisted of vocalist Axl Rose, lead guitarist Slash, rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin, bassist Duff McKagan, and drummer Steven Adler. Apart from hard rock they are also associated with heavy metal... read more

For Sure Guns N' Roses is one of the best live bands, but please no reunion!
I don't want Slash's perfect guitar sound behind axl's terrible voice...

One of the best live band performer I wish for a reunion!

This band is great live, axl's voice may not be the same although he puts effort into his vocals, slash's riffs and solos are good as always, duff's bass playing is always good, fortus' rhythm playing is as good as Izzy's was

17 Judas Priest Judas Priest are a British heavy metal band that formed in Birmingham, England, in 1969. They are often referred to as one of the greatest metal bands of all time, and are even commonly called “The Metal Gods”, after one of the songs on their 1980 album “British Steel”.

They are known for several of their hit songs, which include “Painkiller”, “Breaking The Law”, You’ve Got... read more

What? Number 22? Are you kidding.. Judas must be TOP 10..

Amazing band! Rob Halford all the way!

18 Bruce Springsteen Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, and humanitarian. He is known for his work with the E Street Band. Nicknamed "The Boss", Springsteen is widely known for his brand of poetic lyrics, Americana, working class and sometimes political sentiments centered on his native New Jersey, his distinctive voice, and his lengthy and energetic... read more

Saw him at Wembley Stadium in 2013 and he is by far and away the greatest live performer I have ever seen and I've seen The Who (who are the second best), Paul Weller (3rd), Muse, Van Morrison, Green Day, Roger Waters performing Dark-side of the moon and many many more but that day at Wembley Stadium will always stand out as the greatest show. Top band, top songs, and a man at the top of his game with a set of 3+ hours including Darkness on the edge of town in it's entirety. Outstanding! Even my friend who doesn't really like him had to admit it was the best show he's ever seen.

Without a doubt the greatest performer in rock history.
No one else comes close.
He is the greatest songwriter ever.
He is an incredible guitarist, great on harmonica & more than holds his own on piano.
An amazing arranger, athletic performer leading the worlds greatest band.
A Springsteen concert is a religious experience.
Stones have become their own cover band & haven't made a great record since Some Girls (1978).
U2 comes in 2nd, but Springsteen is way out ahead.

19 The Rolling Stones The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962. The first settled line-up consisted of Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica), Keith Richards (guitar), Bill Wyman (bass) and Charlie Watts (drums).

Their best works include songs like Paint it Black, Sympathy for the Devil, Satisfication (Which ranked no. 2 in The Rolling... read more

If Beethoven were alive today he would be queuing in the rain for tickets to see The Rolling Stones. If seeing them is not on your bucket list you probably don't have one.

Clearly just a lot of dumb young Punks voting if The Stones are not number one, which they clearly are! no one performs like them. U2's bad at Live Aid 85 is the next best thing!

Should at least be top 5. I am a queen fan but I could not see the stones down in 13th

20 Aerosmith Aerosmith is an American rock band, sometimes referred to as "the Bad Boys from Boston" and "America's Greatest Rock and Roll Band".

This is embarrasing, Aerosmith is the greatest live band ever, 41 years performing and they're doing it better than ever and they don't need lights and big shows like U2 and Kiss.

21 Coldplay Coldplay are a British pop rock band formed in 1996. The band consists of Chris Martin (lead vocalist and pianist), Jonny Buckland (lead guitarist), Guy Berryman (bassist) and Will Champion (drummer and backing vocalist). Manager Phil Harvey is often considered an unofficial fifth member. The band renamed themselves "Coldplay" in 1998. Before making their debut album, they recorded and released three... read more

I'm from Angola, I enjoy every type of music, from kuduro to Jazz... Let me tell you this: I wouldn't call coldplay music as "Rock, Pop, or something else"; coldplay music is a therapy! Their song is amazing and makes anybody feel great regardless state of mind. I love you, and if Chris Martin die one day, please take me with you. I'm a straight man and I would love to be your friend. You seem to me a very blessed human being, not only you but the others members too. God bless you!

I've seen almost all of these bands live and Muse was my favorite act... until I saw Coldplay. I have never seen such an emotionally charged and passionate show... the lights, the band, and the crowd all singing together in unison brought me to tears. I wasn't SUPER into Coldplay at first but now that I've seen them live I am a lifelong fan. 10/10 best show ever, I would spend my life savings to follow them around on tour and die a happy man.

22 Faces

The loudest Rock band ever.

Never heard of them

23 Korn Korn is an American nu-metal band from Bakersfield, California, formed in 1993. The band's current lineup includes founding members Jonathan Davis, James "Munky" Shaffer, Brian "Head" Welch, and Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu, with the addition of Ray Luzier, who replaced the band's original member, David Silveria in 2007. Korn was originally formed by three of the members of the band L.A.P.D... read more

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!

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

One of the best and heaviest bands going today.

24 Alice In Chains Alice in Chains is an American grunge/alternative metal band formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1987 by guitarist and songwriter Jerry Cantrell and original lead vocalist Layne Staley.

Before you choose something else please just listen to this, feel the power in Layne's voice feel his high range, feel the emotion, hear Mike Starr one of the best bassists of all time just going insane on that base! Hear Jerry's kick butt riffs and the pounding drums of Sean. Notice all the little and big things this band did in the 90s to create an absolute fantastic band live.

Number 100? seriously?

25 Rush Rush was a Canadian progressive rock band that was formed in 1968. The band has had an iconic lineup since 1975, which included Neil Peart (Drums, Percussion), Geddy Lee (Vocals, Bass, Keyboards), and the guitarist, Alex Lifeson. Peart passed away after a 3 year battle with brain cancer in January of 2020. Because of this, Lee says there are no plans to keep the band going, so Rush is most likely... read more

A band that has been together for 40+ years. Simply the best individual musicians molded together to construct simply the best band. Absolutely terrific band that are respected by many other musicians in the biz! Often played for 3 hours without another band to start them off! Talk to anyone who knows anything about music and they will tell you that Neil Peart is the best drummer, Geddy Lee is one of the best bassist in the history of the instrument and tell me anyone else that can play guitar to any Rush songs, never mind all of the Rush songs. YYZ, La Villa Strangiato, Xanadu comes to mind specifically! This band was never appreciated or respected by many so-called music experts but Rush shamed all of those experts! Then they gained almost all of those experts as fans!

This band is all about consistency and longevity. Small talk between songs is taken out of the equation because this band believes in taking care of business, delivering the music to fans. They are Gentlemen and professional.
In addition to deep felt lyrics, written by the drummer who doesn't sing, by the way, these three musicians play a multitude of instruments which create a sound unlike any other band on the planet. I am a Conisuer of rush I've only seen them 42 times live which is minuscule compared to other
rush fans. Each musician graces us with their own unique personality, also, It's nice to witness the commrodery between the three. It's never boring watching rush live!
T. Marillo.
