Top 5 Live Performances Ever
Title says all.
READ THIS, THOSE WHO DONT WILL BE VISITED BY A LARGE HERON WHO WILL MAKE A MESS OF YOUR POST AND PANS.
Before commenting, watch the videos, dont minimize them, actually watch them. THEN and only THEN may you disagree with me.
YouTube - Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody/Radio Ga Ga (Live Aid '85)
Freddy Mercury had 75,000 clapping in unison during this show, nuff said.
YouTube - Hendrix - Star Spangled Banner (best angle)
Some of the greatest guitar work ever, this is probably his most famous and best performance.
YouTube - Blur Live in Cork 1995 This is a Low
The last half of this song, features an absolutely incredibly guitar solo and some great drumming. Damons vocals have never been better than in this performance, absolutely stunning.
YouTube - Red Hot Chili Peppers @ Slane Castle - Throw Away Your TV
Along with this being the largest outdoor concert of all time, this performance was absolutely breathtaking, the last 2 minutes are godly.
YouTube - Buckethead - Interworld / Animal Behavior Outro
Just....Just.. watch the damn video....

Please, stop these types of threads.
The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

all 6 parts of the above concert are very much worth checking out.
stanley jordan covering eleanor rigby - you will NOT consider the electric guitar the same way after watching this. YouTube - Stanley Jordan is GOD (Eleanor Rigby guitar cover)
squarepusher showing why he's the man when it comes to the electric bass guitar - YouTube - Squarepusher Tom Jenkinson Live Bass Show in Paris sept 2007
fantomas @ montreux - YouTube - Fantomas - Suspended Animation (Montreux)
as for flea and frusciante that slane performance from above is one of the weakest interplays i've heard between them. i'd rather see them do 3 hours of this - YouTube - Flea at the Trumpet - than hear just about anything the chili peppers have put out in the last decade.
as for buckethead having to wait 3 minutes to hear someone solo like david gilmour with jimi hendrix's tone with some default 80s shredding mixed in isn't exactly what i'd call mind blowing.
and for anyone who enjoyed my first few links here's a little something something - YouTube - Rahsaan Roland Kirk - I Say A Little Prayer - Live 1969
