In this thread, we post tales/videos of our favorite live musical performances that we have attended/seen on video. By "live," I just mean non-studio stuff. Doesn't have to be some big concert or anything.

My favorite live musical experience ever was a few years ago, seeing Prince here in Chicago. Specifically, the acoustic set he did. Just him and an acoustic guitar. One of those very, very rare moments when you get to see just how talented an artist truly is. Really amazing.

But alas, I have no video of it. So I'll post some others.

Here's one. One of the few bands I know of that sound just as great (if not better) live than they do in studio:

I saw Arcade Fire last year, and they are absolutely electric live.

A few years ago, I saw Wolf Parade in Montreal and they were the best live show I've ever seen. I would say they are better live than recorded. I took the coach from Winnipeg to Montreal (32 straight hours), got off and went right to the show. I often wonder how much better it would have been if I wasn't in so much pain...

I would say these two experiences were as close as this atheist has come to a religious experience.

I seen Elvis Costello when i went to see Bob Dylan a couple years back.

I always kinda thought of Elvis as being songs like Pump it Up and such so never gave him much of a listen. BUT GEES he was amazing. He played acoustic and told jokes between songs.
I so wish he would put out a decent acoutic/solo album.

Besides that... I seen Lamb of God with Hatebreed a while ago as well. Loved every second of that. Usually I go to show and there is like a mosh pit here and and mosh pit there. It was just pure mayhem, loved every minute of it.

Haha, that is fine, I'm just teasing Beanstew as he seems to be in love with quite a few female singers.


I think that my favourite concert ever was NIN.

Here's one of my pictures of Lykke from the other night.
