    I would like to know from my fellow GF members if they have a favorite group, artist, or song and have seen it live or know there's a recording of it. Sometimes singers and bands perform better in person than on a CD.

    Personally, I like The Killer's performance of "When You Were Young" at the Royal Albert Hall, it was just a lovely event and the crowd got really into it :D

    Axl always, ALWAYS switches it up when he does it live. As in this video he starts at... um, about 3:30 and from his yell at the beginning to his yell near the end of the song always feels different each live performance. You never know what you're gonna get isn't just from Forest Gump, it's also for GnR! He (...and I'm giving Axl 100% of the credit) really knows how to give his fans a fantastic live concert.

    You can feel the emotions from the crowd, they extend their song and it just has a way better vibe than a CD.

    Anything from Michael Jackson and I know I might be repeating myself like an old record but if you actually took five minutes to take a listen to Michael Jackson you actually understand what I'm trying to say. He's so amazing live.

    Cheap Trick's Live at Budokan contains some classic live takes on fairly forgettable studio songs ("Ain't That A Shame", "I Want You to Want Me"). They were definitely one of the best live bands I ever saw.

    And then there's this.

    Any MJ performance was pure bliss.

    He had it all....stage presence, entertainment, talent, and awesome set of dance moves.

    Muse!!! Omg they are just amaaaaaazing!

    My favourite ever live version of any song has to be Eric Clapton - Layla.

    Amazing. It's so resigned and beautiful.

    P.s MJ WAS an amazing performer before the mid 90's. I loved his early stuff....like the entire first disk of the History albulm...after that....it was just painful. Sorry. He was a legend though.

    NIN is amazing live, and so is DMB. I'm too lazy to look it up, but you can find them both on YouTube. Try to find video from NIN's Lights in the Sky tour.

    i have a threeway tie betwen metallica (i was sick, fell asleep and was throwing up but stayed the whole time cause it was so amazing went to the hospital after it was over), queen (they played with a huge screen of freddy singing and playing piano, pure magic), and i know this is out of place here but panic at the disco (love them or hate them those guys know how to put on a show. at one point a contorsionist climbed out of a suitcase that was so crazy small like one of those standard rolling bags and when she was out she had to have been at least 6 ft tall)

    The best Live Performance I ever attended was Chris LeDoux at the Eagle Mountain Casino Theatre.

    It was a small venue, maybe 500 people if that. But I'll tell you what, I've never been to a more electrified concert. LeDoux was amazing, I'd heard prior to that show that he was literally the best Live Act I'd ever see in any Genre. He came through, Rode a mechanical Bull in the middle of a song (He stopped singing obviously to let the band riff). Then he literally unplugged everything, sat on the edge of the stage and played acoustic. Sounded Perfectly like he did on the Albums. I'd like to hear some of todays Pop-Goons try that, they'd all be lost without their voice being altered.
