Muse - before seeing them live they were just another band I liked a lot, now they're my biggest musical crush since U2 back in 2000,

Lisa Gerrard - her voice is magnificent on records, but listening to her live made me feel as if I was in a presence of some celestial being from another universe. Absolutely mesmerising.

I've seen Radiohead last Summer, and it really SUCKED!

Franz Ferdinand is a lot of fun (even if Kapranos doesn't sing well)

Have you see them play OUTSIDERS live?

There are quite a few bands that I looooved live, but the one that sticks out the most in my mind....other than U2 is Bon Jovi. Ok, so my New Jersey native throws us back to big hair 80's rock, but they still produce a fantastic show, especially at Giants Stadium!

I don't know why, but when I see this live video and it hits de 0:31 mark, the sight of Richie Sambora, the camera... I don't know, but I get paralyzed.... its amazing

The Stone Roses are probably the best live band ive heard.

Watch this clip of them at the Manchester Hacienda.

Franz Ferdinand ARE a lot of fun!


They're not my favorite live act aside from U2, but they are very good live. I've seen them 3 times at festivals and EVERY time I've been very impressed and had a lot of fun during their set.

Franz live =

Yes Franz how could I forget them? Well they're among my favourites aswell (not as much as the other two I mentioned), just because they transmit such a great positive energy at concerts... They may not be great musicians but they know how to make and exelent show, and that's just their goal: to have a good time and make fans have a good time, not to see a piece of art.

I just don't agree when you say Kapranos can't sing... He's not a great singer (far from that) and he goes out of key sometimes, but I like his voice. Very low and smooth... Just listen to Swallow Smile and you'll know what I mean (if you haven't listened to it yet...) And live he's amazing i my opinion... He has a certain aura around him.

I was gonna post a different clip that really showed how well the stone roses could play but i couldn't find "i am the resurrection" on you tube .
Having said that though i still believe the stone roses had a better guitarist, a better drummer and better singer than U2 have. Im not disagreeing with you that there are probably 20 bands better than them live, there may well be, but from what ive seen the stone roses were an amazing live band and id rate them above U2 easily.
