    Maybe it's because she isn't being "motivated" by her husband like Tina was...

    No video but I was there:

    Tool, 2 days after 9/11 in Detroit, emotions were high, they opened up with the Grudge....the fucking Palace exploded.

    No show can ever top that IMO

    There is a reason you only ever hear the live version of Feel Like I Do by Peter Frampton.
    Also Hotel California

    Danzig when he first started doing Misfits songs again with Doyle several years ago. Never thought i would get to see it.
    Henry Rollins and Keith Morrison doing Black Flag songs. There was no opening band, so Henry ended up doing a ton of songs, including Ramones covers. It was amazing.
    Second time i saw Morrissey he started doing Smiths songs again. He sang 'there is a light that never goes out' and it was goddamn beautiful.

    I like a lot of contemporary music, from indie rock to electronic music, metal (I was a huge metal head in my teens), jazz. But two of the best live performances I witnessed so far were from the "old dogs". Bruce Springsteen in 2006 and Paul McCartney in 2011. Both amazing shows and they both played for more than three hours.

    Oh...and the mighty Maceo Parker in 2016

    Every Alice gig I've been to deserves mention.
    Hanoi Rocks at a little dive bar. Several Nick Cave performances.
    The Nuge. Parliament-Funcadelic with an awesome line-up including Shider, Worrell, McKnight, Hampton. The Stooges. The New York Dolls. Supersuckers, Rev. Horton Heat and Nashville Pussy.

    Nightwish's End of an Era has to be up there, epic performance.
    Of the shows I have been to Rammstein were the most mind-blowing. They have gorgerous special effects, stage precense and crowd control.

    IMO she failed miserably. Tina is a lot better.
