Here are my favorites. What about you guys?

Iron Maiden

These guys have to be near the top of anyone's list. They have so much energy while playing, It would blow any metalhead's mind. Here are a few of my favorite live songs

2 Minutes to Midnight - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihbRtLrK36Y

Run to the Hills - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQW9wD00Twc

Flight of Icarus - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zFy8Xv1C-k (Truely UNDERRATED song imo)

Aces High - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJq1eJe-sto

*BONUS* Here is a clip of BLAZE BAYLEY trying to perform "Number of the Beast"
Number of the Beast - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ccD4pbfZdf8



Children of Bodom

These guys are simply amazing live. So much energy, it's incredible. Hopefully I will get to go see them on Mayhem later this year. Yes, I know, all of these are off Follow the Reaper. That's because that album has all of my favorite songs on it.

Bodom After Midnight solo/Follow the Reaper - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r4mvcfBwCNQ

Kissing the Shadows - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MK7jFV1H9-Q

Mask of Sanity - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X59Cgz7wPCk

Children of Decadence - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdqNP0rt1X4



Dio

Amazing. End of story.

Holy Diver - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7d6ZwUlXpPU

Mystery - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lHTYMmuu7cg

We Rock - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qaxTHMxwv8Y

Rainbow in the Dark (with Bruce Dickinson & Nicko Mcbrain from IRON MAIDEN) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qo8b9fwbLco



KISS

I know a lot of people hate KISS, but their live shows are incredible. I have to admit, I am a member of the KISS ARMY.

Love Gun - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QoLx8RsHN0A

Deuce - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R001nMbt3uc

Shock Me - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOGE5x0MTdY

Firehouse - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuQR_fZPYmI







There are TONS more, but I'm going to keep it limited.

I gotta say Rush is among the best live bands I've ever seen. They play 3 hour shows, create films for each setlist, and have been touring almost nonstop for the last 5 years. They have lots of energy and sound pretty damn good for a three guys that are 59-60. I had one of the worst seats in the arena, yet it was the best show I've ever been to.

Iron Maiden is another great live band, don't need to go into detail about them

Alice Cooper is a very good showman, he puts on a very entertaining set.

Buddy Guy is also a very good showman when performing. He doesn't rehearse and improvises throughout his shows. He likes to interact with the audience a bit more and moved through the audience soloing and singing to random women. He had a very commanding stage presence and can play and sing very well for a 76 year old.

my favorite shows are ones where its more physical, not necessarily mosh pits, but constant moving, jumping, circle pits what ever makes thing more fun for me, makes me feel like im more there or something, or part of the performance. thats not entirely on the band (crowd needs to be receptive), but the band does have an effect. ill also throw gogol bordello on here even though they aren't metal. seen those guys 7 times- for good reason

Well now that i've been to quite a few shows, I have to say there are a lot of great performers. Aura Noir put on about the most energetic show I've been at. Got my braces smashed in a mosh put during that one. Even Marduk, who came on after, couldn't match them. Minus the Bear is GREAT live, seen them 4 times and they never fail to amaze. I am seeing Rush this summer, and seeing Ensiferum, Tyr, Heidevolk and Trollfest soon so that should be epic. Haven't got to see any folk bands yet, and Ensiferum and Tyr are two of my favorites. And trollfest is just crazy fun. Coheed and Cambria, Devin Townsend, Obscura, Ra Ra Riot, The Shins all get honorable mentions. Skeletonwitch too, great live band.

Hell yeah I'm going to paganfest! Not too familiar with Helsot, but I like/love the other four. It's going to be a booze-filled day of adventure!

Iced Earth and Bolt Thrower are probably the best live metal acts I've seen: I mean I'm not even a BT fan, but they are undeniably awesome live. Watching Carcass play the whole of N:DtI is up there as well.

In terms of non-metal, Muse put on the best live show I have ever seen. Words can't describe the atmosphere, energy and sheer presence the band brings to their show.

the only metal I saw was the Big Four when they came to Yankee Stadium, and I must say that all of them were quite good, 'Tallica and Slayer were the best.
Non-metal wise, Richard Thompson is quite awesome.
