Ive now been 2 a wide range of concerts n just wondered wot evry1s opinion was on hu the best live band is.

Personally some of the best that Iv seen are U2, Foo Fighters, Axl Rose & Backing Band, Pink Floyd and Velvet Revolver

The worst band iv seen were the Chilis. I was so disappointed with them.

Simple Plan live rocked!

LOLZ. That hurt. Actually I was standing in line for beer when they were on.

The best I've seen is Metallica, but then not too many bands come to SA. Metallica rocked.

The Allmans, Pearl Jam, and last but not least DMB. They all put on a great show that can't be touched.

-Led Zeppelin could play the same set list at 2 diffrent concerts and have one last for 4 hours and the other for 6.
-The Who destroyed all of their stuff at the end of every show.
-I would give my left testicle to see a Grateful Dead show.

as for bands that we can see today. (you can still see The Who.. but its not the same without Moon or Entwistle)

-Dream Theater was awesome when I saw them great muscianship and live Metallica and Rush medley's > stage presence
-Motley Crue was good, but only because of Tommy Lee's 'Titty Cam'
-Barenaked Ladies are actually very funny onstage.
-as are Great Big Sea.
-I had the sweet sweet chance to see Robert Plant, he kicked ass
-and Trans-Siberian Orchestra shows can make you blind.. seriously, there wicked

I heard that they are one of the worst bands (musically speaking) ever.

The Crue have a ton of energy live and they are a blast to see, but other than Mick Mars, they blow musically.

Almost any jam band is going to be a good live act.

Check out bands such as The Allman Brothers Band, The Grateful Dead (disbanded), Phish (disbanded), Phil Lesh and Friends, Trey Anastasiom String Cheese Incident, The Dave Matthews Band, Umphree's McGee, The Derek Trucks Band etc.

Another band, not very well-known, is a band from India called Indian Ocean. Easily one of the most talented bands I have ever heard.

Agnostic Front, the Suspicion, Shadows Fall, the Repercussions, the Queers, and a bunch more I'm not gonna bother to write out now are really good. Also, even though I don't really like them on record, the Unseen are awesome live.

Also, pretty much everyone really needs to go to some shows in a more intimate setting, rather than sitting in a stadium, watching some band in a seat from a couple hundred feet away. Trust me, you'll like it.

Pearl Jam


-Huge changes in setlists. B-sides, covers, improvs. Not to mention tags at the end of Daughter,Betterman etc.
-Change in lyrics to go with where they are/issues in politics etc.
-Excellent interaction with the crowd- after taking pictures of the front row, Eddie said "these are pictures of the best singers in the world."
-3 hour gigs.
Friends, applaud the comedy is over.

I saw The Living End live and they were absolutely magnificent. They played everything perfectly, and did quite alot of improv which was awesome. The were so energetic, with Chris Cheney running around the stage, climbing on Scott's bass and the bass drum and stuff.

I heard that you need to buy The Carnival of Sins Motley Crue DVD, look on Youtube for live performances, or go to one of their concerts instead of making stupid assumptions and/or relying on what you have "heard".

So, yeah, Crue and Aerosmith

bingo.

Pearl Jam is BY FAR the best live band out there. i have been to 10 different shows by them, and each and every single time the setlist was DRASTICALLY different. that is due to the fact the have a larger catelogue of awsome songs than any other band out there.

and yea they play longer than anyone out there as well.
