^ truth.

Love Shows will always be the ultimate experience for music lovers.

Unless the band you like sucks live.

It's just a matter of time before internet live shows become more popular. Problem with internet live show is that the sound is still in mono and it can sound ****ty.. once the technology gets better and sounds get better internet live shows will become more popular

They may become more popular but I would still much prefer to see the band but if it's a one off gig in a different country then the net would be great.

Live shows won't die. The reasoning is because of performers like Trans-Siberian Orchestra, watching on the internet won't give you the fire, the tons of metal and lights flying around a sold out stadium, and the guitarists running up and down the aisles getting hugs from random women. Internet shows may get more popular but live shows are going nowhere

I'll be honest and say that I don't really care for the visual aspect of music at all, whether it's videos or seeing a band live. Give me tapes anytime. I freely admit that I'm not much for going out, whether it's to a club or a mall or a gig...

I've had my best experiences with music while listening on headphones and talking a walk, or putting something on the stereo and closing my eyes.

But will live music die off? No.

Live shows aren't going anywhere. They're social experiences and humans are social animals. It's just like bars, people still enjoy going out for drinks with other people even though it's more expensive than sitting at home drinking by themselves.

IMO Music's a sociable thing, and most bands want to play, and be heard at max possible volume. They also crave the buzz of the crowd interaction. It's a pretty 'up their own arse' band who would prefer not to play live and be content with their fans hearing the stuff on bad quality MP3.

The internet is full of social and interactive experiences- the lack of social interaction is not a good argument against online bands; you can easily combine the two. I watched the show again last night, and in one month he's gone from 500 people to 1600 people watching his live weekly concert online; there's also a live chat room and interactive contests and prizes. Live shows won't die, but online shows are the wave of the future- you can reach MORE people, MORE easily.
