Touch choice for me between Springsteen and U2. I've seen them both twice, but the Springsteen shows are fresher in my mind

My favorite show has been Floyd. Never really seen anything like it since.

I think Michael Jackson was the greatest live act. Especially after he got the boob job.

I'm going to say him and be absolutely serious, too. His live work is just utterly and totally flawless. Pristine. He's not my favourite singer, but his show was astounding. I've been thoroughly surprised by who is actually an unbelievable performer. It's a funny thing to remove bias from it and see that, yes, Phil Collins is the fucking shit! Paul McCartney - not the biggest fan (didn't think I was a fan, to be honest) but man can he put on a show... Metallica, love their studio work. But in concert? Not so much. They just weren't as good as I reckon they could or should have been. Criticism spread over a few things there, from setlist to technical failings.

But no, best in show? Michael Jackson. Hands down. I'm serious. He's a freaky, freaky man.

Sorry, but no way was Michael Jackson the best live act ever. His only good tour was the Bad Tour in the late 1980's.

The Grateful Dead had a pretty long run of good tours. They could arguably be one of the best. Springsteen, U2 and the Rolling Stones are up there. But, no way Wacko Jacko.

If the How the West Was Won album is in any way exemplary of their typical concert atmosphere, I'm going to nominate Zeppelin.
