|Best Live Performances |
Best live performances i'v seen...
Reading Fest 08. Amazing performance, thought they were dead. I was wrong. The band were tight, fire works were cool, new music seemed good. 10/10.
Reading Fest 07. So loud! Had not realy heard much of them before. Bought 3 albums soon after. A massive surprise.
|3||Rage Against The Machine|
Reading 08. Been a huge fan since I was about 16. I never thought i would get a chance to see them. Yet I managed to get a reading ticket at the last moment. One of those definfing moments for myself. Excellent performance. Incredibly violent crowd which I was part of. Memorable.
Portmouth Guildhall 04. First gig I ever went to. So it is naturally one of my favs. Great performance, although they did make everyone wait about an hour before they got on stage which pissed a lot of people off. Permanently damaged my right ear as well, due to being literally squashed against the speaker. Got lost and missed the last train as well. Mates dad had to pic us up at about midnight! Classic night.
|5||Kings Of Leon|
Reading Festival 07. Dont like the band much now. But that year they released 'Because Of The Times', which i loved. So seeing them live added to the enjoyment. Hot, sunny day with a beer. Good times.
|6||The Mars Volta|
Brixton Academy, London, 08. Always loved ATDI, and transfered my interest to these guys. Excellent performance, especialy the drummer who is an absolute beast! Pulled out the tracks from De-Loused which were fantastic. Great performance.
|7||Manic Street Preachers|
Reading Fest 08. One of those bands you hear as kid, but avoid!! A friend persuaded me to see them, and as the alternative was the Killers, i though i'd might as well! Shocked. They were excellent, the crowd were going mental, and I found I actualy quite liked a few of their tracks. Covered 'Pennyroyal Tea' by Nirvana as well, which was about as close to Nirvana I will ever get. Excellent.
Reading Festival Again. 08. Never been that fussed by them, but as I like punk in general I thought i'd give them a go. They were excellent, the tent was ramed, with mosh pits galore! A good feel band, would recomend to anyone.
Reading 07. Loved 'Fake Sound Of Progress' about what seems like ten years ago. Really do not like the way the band have gone. Anyway, nothing much else was on, so me and a mate thought we might as well see them. We arived half way through the set, and seemed to have missed the lame stuf. These guys are quality performers, got the whole crowd jumping. To cap it off 'Shinobi' was the final track, which resulted in several circle mosh pits, and brought back many good memories. Very good performance.
|10||Nine Black Alps|
Portsmouth Pyramid Centre, England, 06. Most of you will probably of never heard of this band, or if you have, just put them down as a lame indie band. However back in 06 they were not! I love the whole grunge edge they have to them, or had should I say. They were surprisingly heavy live, and resulted in many a fight. It turned out to be one of those gigs when you get someone who stands there and defends their girlfriend in the middle of the mosh pit. Man i hate that. But the music and the amount of punches the guy took, made up for it. Would recomend seeing the band if they are round your area. God know what they are up to.
|You must live nearish me haha, although judging by the venues for 4 and 10 you'd probably hate where I'm from heh.|
I'm jealous of 2, 3, 6 and 8 :(
I think Nine Black Alps are playing round here this month, or it might've been last month... but i'll check them out if it's this month.
|Southampton then!! I'm studying at Winchester as it happens. I dont support Pompey though! Yer see them, pretty good live.|
|Hahaha yup! Oh right nice one, studying music?|
Yeah, I just can't stand football all together so I don't have anything against Pompey in general haha.
|Just as well you dont support Southampton! Bad times for their fans. Anyway, I'm actualy studying history, but im in a band as well- so naturally see quite a few when i can out of interest. You ever been to the Talking Heads venue? Played their last night! Great little venue.|
|Smashing Pumpkins at Reading has to be the best gig I've winessed! was incredible, sound quality was amazing, Jimmy was ridicuously tight and played seemingly effortlessly. Overall it had a kind of drug-like effect on me, quite hard to explain. Was incredible|
|1 and 4 are amazing live|
|I saw 6 open up for RHCP and they were beyond horrible, Omar was damn near incoherent. |
|NIN and Iron Maiden were the two acts I've seen live that I've been blown away by. I'm dying to see Metallica sometime.|
|metallica are well worth seeing, definitely in my top 5. I got to go free as well so that kinda made it even better.|
|I checked on livenation and metallica is going on another tour at the end of the year, but I'm not sure If I want to pay out the ass for tickets. |
|They are also headlining Sonosphere Festival. I think thats how to spell it!|
|So pretty much all the shows you've seen.|
|Rush dude, they are so epic live.|
|Saw nine black alps at coachella a couple years ago.. Great band|
|i agree METALLICA should be at N1 their live performances are mind blowing |
