Hey GMC! I don't remember if we talk about this in the forum but it's always great to talk about this! smile.gif You know that with my band Cirse are doing the rehearsals to begin to present our first album and I'm always wondering how to do a great, interesting, amazing show... so we are always trying new things and watching DVDs... I can say that I find Jane's Addiction Live Shows one of the most amazing.. however I only see them on DVDs... Talking about the bands that I could see in Argentina, I remember Nine Inch Nails show as one of my favourites. I also enjoyed Kiss live.

Jane Says

What the most amazing band to see live for you?

I remember when i saw iron maiden- the stage was awesome, Bruce was playing so well to the crowd and jumping off all sorts of things. I remember janick was insane- swinging his guitar around from his strap and spinning around and running about on stage while playing blistering leads- that was awesome.

Also dream theater- but i think it was more to do with "omg im watching dream theater". The video part of the show is really cool- but just their music is enough to make an awesome show. There are little parts during the show where you might see for example portnoy making a rude gesture about petrucci's extended soloing (as a joke ofcourse) and i think that was really cool to see them having so much fun on stage.

I think too many bands try to look cool on stage and the show just falls flat on its face- boring....

I was very impressed with Tool when I saw their live show last year, probably the best live band I've seen.

Rhapsody of Fire looks amazing live. Unfortunately I've only been able to judge off their live DVD, but hopefully they'll come to Michigan soon laugh.gif

Iron Maiden with Dickinson was awesome. I really enjoyed that show. I saw Dream Theater two years ago and they didn't sound good so I came back home sad... sad.gif

I saw them in an opened stadium and it was a day with strong wind. This place is very big and I never enjoy the bands that I see there...

For me it has to be Blind Guardian or Rhapsody Of Fire- i saw both on DVD's only (i saw G3 live and DT live) and those are 2 bands that really make an awesome "family" atmosphere on their concerts smile.gif

Iron Maiden, No one comes close to it, its just so amazing.

I must also mention Nightwish, beautiful shows, and The Black Dahlia Murder for being the most violent and intense show ive ever seen smile.gif

The problem with Dream Theater Live is that the vocalist Labrie is awful and has much editing on albums. My favourite bands live have been The Pixies, Muse, Iron Maiden, Pearl Jam, Mudhoney, Megadeth and that's it I guess.

This is DT playing Metropolis with an orchestra, James sounds incredible IMO:

That is an official release and so therefore would have been edited in studio. Get a video of him live that is an amateur shot off youtube. You willsee the difference. I've seen them 4 times. All times he has been awful. Rest of the band are always spot on.

I really like Lamb Of God. They have an awesome live show biggrin.gif
Stone Sour is nice too! Corey knows how to interact with the audience!

I saw Tool too, but I didn't find them that good...
But it was on a festival, and I was standing on the side of the audience...
Might have been that.

EDIT: And Maiden ofcourse! biggrin.gif
EDIT 2: And Black Dahlia Murder! Insane show! And their singer is a very nice guy
