Best Live Act - Ever!

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
Following on from the post about 'Best Live Act in 2001', what is the Best live act ever?

For me, it would have to be when I saw Prodigy at the CIA in 1997. So much energy in their performance, was easily the best gig I've ever been too and I could possibly say ever go too (bit of guess work there!). What a night!

Oh and to top it off even more... who were the support act. Foo Fighters. Need I say more!

Two great bands/groups - 1 great night.

Whats your best?

    Don't really go to a lot of gigs or anything so don't really see a lot of live acts as such.

    The best DJ though, at putting on a show has to be Mark EG. Quality mad fucker!

    Slightly different, but seeing delirious live @ Soul Survivor 2001 in Manchester was really good. An absolutly great atmosphere and really good music.

    U2 at earls court was an inspirational gig,
    idlewild at shepherds bush was mental,
    stereophonics at morfa was my favourite as it was my first.

    Nirvana are one of the best ever live acts. have any of you seen their video - live, tonight, sold out! its a great way to experience their live shows and they can actually play decent when live to, not like many of the bands now, e.g Blink 182 <IMG alt="image" SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

    Actually, Glastonbury 1999 was awsome! I got a sun-tan and saw Fatboy Slim/Chemical Brothers headline the dance tent before catching the end of REM! I saw Ash, Muse and Hole that day too.

    Rage Against the Machine were jaw-dropping at Leeds 2000 too. Festivals rock!

    Manic Street Preachers March 2001 Manchester apollo brilliant!!!!!!!! they played some stuff off the new album and the classics and at the end Nicky Wire trashed everything sheer class. but i totally agree with the radiohead gig oct 2000 i went on the same night, good laser effects on optimistic!

    1.Rage Against the Machine - Wembley Arena Jan 2000

    2. LIT - Meanfiddler - Feb 2002

    3. Limp Bizkit - Wembley Arena - June 2001 (i don't care what you say, limp bizkit were bloody amazing live)

    many many other bands i've seen live have been good too, including System of a Down, Disturbed and papa Roach, but these stand out.

    Best live acts EVER? Not one before 1996!

    I saw Queen live in 1984, fucking awsome. No-one could contorl a crowd the way Freddie could.

    I've also seen The Who, and can only wish I had seen them when Keith Moon was alive (and I'll bet none of you even know who he was - bloody kids), he was totally outrageous.

    Perhaps this thread should be the "best live act in my lifetime..."

    Oh, FYI, I agree with most of your posts, the choices are some pretty cool bands...I just wouldn't say they were the best ever

    Red Hot Chili Peppers @ Parken, Copenhagen, Denmark. They were fucking awesome!!! The support act: Papa Roach and Iggy Pop. I bet you can all imagine the vibe there.

    Though I am sooooo sad that I never got to see Skunk Anansie, they were my favourite band ever, and now they have split <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="frown"> *1 minutes silence* But i hope that Skin will go touring solo, and then I will sure buy front row tickets!!!
