What was the best Gigs / Concerts you were ever at? The best live bands that I've personally witnessed would have to be Behemouth, Avenged Sevenfold, Killswitch Engage,Korn,Tool and Metallica, all of them in Dublin. I've seen a ton of bands live, but these stick out as particularly great live performers.

I've only been to a few concerts so I'm not sure about the "best" but I loved seeing Muse perform live.

Papa Roach at rockfest. It was raining all day made it hell to get around cause there were two stages about a mile apart place covered in mud. I wasn't excepting to much cause i saw them about half a year before this and there sound was just off. But anyway they were so good this made this shitty day so much better.

I've been to a bunch of great shows. Some of my favourites were:
- The White Stripes on their Canadian tour. They were such a force of pure energy live that it pretty much took your breath away.
- David Bowie on his Reality Tour (which is looking like it's probably going to be his last tour though no one knew it at the time). Absolutely perfect show with the perfect backing band and a near perfect set list. One of the first shows I actually attended (I was a bit of a late blooming concert goer) and it set the bar impossibly high for everything that came afterwards.
- Adele in Montreal on her 21 tour. The show was booked and tickets went on sale before she totally broke huge, but she was a sensation before the actual date of the show. This meant she was actually playing a maybe 2000 person capacity little theatre in Montreal instead of a big modern arena. I ended up only a couple of rows back the stage in what turned out to be an amazing and intimate performance. As good as she is in studio, she really is even jaw droppingly better live.

Streetlight Manifesto shows are great. When the circle-pit gets going, you know you're in for a good time.

Joyce Manor was the best show I've been to. Their songs are short so their set didn't last long but it felt like hours have passed. The show was sold out so the place they were playing at, which was pretty much a bar, was packed full. Everything was perfect. Joyce Manor sounded great. Everybody sang along to their songs and moshed along the way. It was a visceral and spine-chilling experience unlike any other punk show I've been to. I saw Joyce Manor again last year but it didn't feel the same as the first. They were still amazing nonetheless. I don't think it'll ever experience something like that ever again.

I'd love to see Bowie live, the guy is a musical genius. I can see that being a tough live show to top.

Will never be able to see them live but Big Black seemed like such a kickass live act in the 80s from the recordings.

I've seen Pink Floyd live, and it was an impressive show. I'm not sure if I could call them the best live band. Still, it was an amazing spectacle.

I have to be honest; none. Although there was plenty of acid and pot going around. Just never really been my thing.

I saw Floyd during their last tour more than 20 years ago and Roger Waters performing solo in 2012 with his "The Wall Live" tour. Just amazing what these guys are able to do.

Was Division Bell really more than 20 years ago? Damn, time sure flies by.

I wish I could have seen The Wall Live, I have never seen Waters live.

I've seen Nickelback & 30 Seconds to Mars live and if i'm honest, Nickelback put on more of a show. They're both excellent bands but I personally think Nickelback have better showmanship.
