6 Best Live Concerts All Time

We just love to see our favorite artists perform live, just being there with the crowd, singing along, and simply enjoying great music is an unforgettable experience. Some artists managed to pull off spectacular performances, the following are six of the best history ever recorded.

1. Metallica with the San Francisco Symphony, at Berkley Community Theater, California 1999
Metallica was already a much appreciated heavy metal band at the time of this performance. Still, the band was inspired by the preference for classical music of their late colleague, Cliff Burton, deciding to combine symphonic harmonies to their music. And so they did, back in 1999, stunning both the fans and critics, with a completely new dimension of their music. The band performed well-known songs, but also brand new ones, specially made for their collaboration with the San Francisco Symphony.

2. Daft Punk, at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, California 2006
Almost ten years passed since the French band played in the United States before this event, so no one knew what to expect. But, with their electrifying music and stunning visual effects, Daft Punk managed to make their performance remain in everybody’s minds. Some amateur images from the show prove that it was quite a spectacle.

3. The Beatles, at Shea Stadium, New York 1965
Even if the Beatles were on an ascendant loop towards success, it was the concert at the Shea Stadium that started out the Beatles mania. More than 55,000 fans attended the event, this musical gig representing the start for the numerous outdoor musical events that were about to happen in the future.

4. Led Zeppelin, at the Royal Albert Hall, London 1970
The band was in a tour around the UK when they played at this prestigious venue in London, known later as a milestone for Led Zeppelin. This performance was considered to be one of the most important live performances ever in the history of music, the concert being video recorded and mastered later on to be presented in a DVD form.

5. Jimi Hendrix, at the Woodstock Music and Art Fair, New York 1969
Jimi Hendrix is probably one of the most talented guitar players of all times. Back in 1969, at Woodstock, Hendrix started his performance on a Monday morning, but even so, he still managed to break the house down with his electrifying guitar. Let us not forget the distorted version of the national anthem, played by Hendrix at the event, which remained in the memory of everyone for years to come.

6. Queen, at Live Aid, Wembley Stadium, London 1985
We chose to end the list of extraordinary live performances of all history with Queen, because it is hard to witness anything similar to what happened back in 1985, at the Wembley Stadium. Only Led Zeppelin and the Who could compete against Queen, although they have managed to completely steal the show at this venue. It will take a while until someone will be born with a similar voice to Freddy Mercury. It took just 20 minutes for the band to enchant the entire crowd, and the spectacular showman talents of Freddy Mercury managed to make 72,000 fans to sing along.
