Best live band or singer other than U2?

I don't know if this is the right place to post this since there are 1000 different sub-forums at this place, but the question being asked is:

What is your favorite live band (other than U2) that you have watched or seen and why?

Mine is Gavin DeGraw. I don't care what you think about his album. When I first heard it, I thought wow, pop cheesy. But, holy sheez, when I saw him live, he is absolutely amazing. He is one of the best male singers I have ever heard. He did this medley of Marvin Gaye, and for a white male singer, he did it perfect. I was amazed. It gave me goose bumps, haha. And it was fun because it was like a restaurant setting. Well a bar/restaurant, for there are reasons for that which I will not indulge, but it was phenomenal.

*Apologies if this is wrong thread.

You know, it's not the sort of thing that's safe to say on Interference, but I've already done my share of defending them here, so all of my skeletons are out of the closet. But. I really love Linkin Park

I'm actually pretty burned out on a lot of the songs from their first two albums (especially the singles), probably because I overplayed them all to hell when I was an emo-ridden teen, but they really are great live.
Chester Bennington gets so into the songs that he just goes out of control. Sometimes he's just throwing his body violently around, stuck in the emotion of the song. And oh how I love the way he screams

My most recent obsession is this Live Aid performance:

(warning, Chester's dancing during the guitar solo is extremely comical )

I'm loving the sarcastic replies to this thread, by the way Some people have nothing better to do, it seems.

I'll just add another Linkin Park link then:

I've seen a few videos of Travis playing live, and they absolutely go off. I'd love to see 'em, but they never come down under...

Anything involving Neil Finn, be it the Finn Brothers, Split Enz, or Crowded House.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

The current line-up of Wilco. Nels Cline is one of the best guitarists around. This clip is especially brilliant after the 2:00 mark.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band is just a great time. It's one big house party.
