That'll teach you!

By the way, have you seen the VH1 documentary The Night James Brown Saved Boston? It is about the Boston performance listed.[/QUOTE]

I think most of these aren't remembered for the music specifically but for the vibe surrounding the music or the buzz the event itself generated. Let's face it, U2's Live Aid version of Bad wasn't all that great musically (I saw/heard it -- via tv -- on the day). It was Bono being over-the-top-Bono (aka normal for him ) that made it memorable.

And the person making this list doesn't claim these are just known for the music played as this quote makes clear:

Quote:
performances that had relevance beyond the notes that were played and resonated well beyond the time and place of their occurrence.
The Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake silliness did resonate far and wide and did indeed have major impact on broadcasting. Sure, no one remembers the music, but you can bet your ass they remember the consequenses of the stunt. That's impact.


(and of course while I was doodling around with my comment, everyone else pretty much said the same things. )

Yes, they have/had. But what live performance of theirs did resonate beyond the show (and if so, in what way)?

Great list without Phish or Janet.

Their performances of Tommy and Quadrophenia at Royal Albert Hall.

I don't think Janet's nipple resonates

Never heard of them. What makes them so special?

Showing my age again, but I remember seeing 5 of these performances on TV when they happened; The Stones and Doors shows I heard about on the radio the next day--I remember vividly--it was all anyone could talk about (but me and my older sisters were into music so maybe it was just in our house). Except for the James Brown show, I have seen all the others on video. With the exception of Phish, a band I never cared about, this is a list of unforgettable shows.

How about Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock? Or U2 on top of the Liquor Store? Or The Beatles on the rooftop (or on Ed Sullivan)?

Did you read the list?

I agree with the list for the most part - nipplegate.

They are joke because only a few people actually remember these things for the music.
Did you even the criteria for the list?

Quote:
What follows, in no particular order, isn’t a list of the best live concerts ever staged. That would be a somewhat academic exercise, populated as it would be with large scale efforts like Woodstock and Live Aid. Rather, this list – which in the spirit of Spinal Tap goes to 11 – consists of a group of performances that had relevance beyond the notes that were played and resonated well beyond the time and place of their occurrence.
