So yeah, what is your favourite live band?

Or what do you think the best live band is?

My personal favourite is Rammstein... they put on an insane live show with lots of fire.. and the bassist goes out into the crowd on a dingy lol

Oh, and I used the searchbar and couldn't find another thread on this topic, and if there is then I apologize.

I write songs.
Currently Requiring Crits:
From what I've seen, HEaven and Hell and Yes were my two favourite shows.

I mean that in the sense they used props and set an atmosphere for their show and didn't jsut play their music.
Epiphone Les Paul (Modded with 2 passive pickups and an EMG81)
Yamaha RG guitar w/ Floyd Rose
Rogue Acoustic

BlackHeart BH5 Tube Amp

Danelectro Metal. Digitech Bad Monkey, Digitech CF-7, Crybaby Wah, Danelectro EQ.
I'd love to see Rammstein, their shows look pretty ****ing epic.

Opeth are the tightest live band I've seen.
In terms of effects and everything, I'll agree it's gotta be Muse.
But in terms of sheer brutality and getting into the music, for me it has to be Gojira.

Opoeth live didnt really do it for me, great band on record, a bit less energetic live than many other bands.

For me the best band live was probably At The Gates, might have just been because they put their all into a reunion tour, but thats how it was for me.

Gojira and Machine Head come close too

you're a funny, funny man, chimp in a tux... funny indeed.
^That's a point, they weren't particularly energetic apart from Mikael, who spent most of the between song time cracking jokes. But when it came to playing, absolutely spot on.

I saw ATG on their reunion tour too, it was ****ing incredible. Where did you see them at?

With the roar of cars and the lulling of the cafe bars,
The sweetly sleeping sweeping of the Seine...

I'll agree with this. I lost my festival virginity to Flogging Molly. They were the tits. I blame them for getting drunk on the first day and not remembering much else. Bloody Irish.

my favorite live band is an underground band called Doctor!Doctor!, f*cking amazing live

I love AC/DC live, I prefer them live to the studio.

other bands I like live, Slipknot, MCR, A7X I think used to be pretty mediocre live but sound much better now, Trivium, and BFMV

Quote by Baby Joel
Isis is amazing
Dinosaur Jr. in my opinion, sounds a lot better live than on their albums (even though the albums still kick ass). But also the Constantines and Foo Fighters put on some great shows.
