Best Live Band
« on: August 08, 2006, 02:02:58 PM »
I went to the Family Values tour yesterday. I thought Tool was the best concert I had ever been to, but now I have to change my opinion. Korn is now the top dog. Instrumentally and vocally perfect! They are not just a band they are entertainers!!! :-D Right before they opened it began to lightning and rain. The mood was dark and beautiful. What a wonderful night! What band or bands that you have seen live fork over a good performance???? :@0

Maybe it's because is the latest concert I've been attending... But thinking it over perhaps this is not the reason... so Depeche Mode.  :-o
Gahan's voice is to die for. Great gig, though I'd have chosen a different playlist.  :| Or maybe added some more tracks even if they have been performing for two hours and a half.  :-D
Demanding. Who, me?  :roll:

Tool, Perfect Circle, White Zombie, Pantera, and maybe Beck. Aerosmith puts on a pretty good show.. I don't like Metallica too much, but saw them twice and both performances were very visual and sounded great..

Haven't had the pleasure of seeing them live yet, but I'm sure Pearl Jam and Bjork put on excellent shows. I've got many of their 'bootleg' concerts and live recordings.

Roger Waters is coming in late September to do the full 'Dark Side of the Moon' presentation, but i'm broke and it's probably already close to selling out... :cry:

Before I wouldve said Hatebreed or even Rob Zombie, but yes DeadHead, i agree, Korn/deftones are now on the top of my list!

How dare you? I think they are one of the best. And I love the Red Hot Chili Peppers as well.
Pearl Jam, I saw them so many years ago as opening act to a U2 gig. They were brilliant and I like them much more than U2  :|

yeh they are pretty perfect but... I find Korn seem to play their songs faster live than the CD versions... due to this I find Foo Fighters the best. Considering I haven't seen anyone else apart from Korn and Foo Fighters lol

Tom Petty.

He was touring to promote his album "The Last DJ", which tells a lot of the dirty side of the music business.

I loved it.

Morticia, Tom Petty recently did a show here in Houston. It was the last stop on his tour. Guess who showed up....Mrs. Stevie Nicks herself. I noticed your interest in her. I heard it was a masterpiece collaboration! Wish I could have been there though. I would have given you some good details!

Iron Maiden is always good! have not been to one of their concerts personally, but i have friends that have, and they have praised them over the skies, and i have seen them on TV live! =P lol...
Maybe it's because I'm Swedish, but i love In Flames live! One word: Monstrous
the Swedish hardcore-band Raised Fist is a great live band too! just awesome!!!
There are many great bands from Sweden!! =P
