Greatest live performances
6.71. The Flaming Lips
I saw The Flaming Lips in Ruisrock 2007, I had only heard maybe one song from them in advance and didn't have much of a clue what they were about. I had lost my friends at the festival, and I was all alone, but damn did gig was mindblowing. I became an instant fan, and I still think that they have had the best live performances I've ever seen.
I went to see them again in 2009, and they didn't disappoint me.
If they're coming to Finland again, I'll be there to see them!
If you wanna feel like a child again, go see their shit.
7.22. Faith No More
I saw them in Kaisaniemi 2009, and in Ilosaari 2010, and both times they rocked.
6.93. Skunk Anansie
Skunk Anansie performed in Finland 2010, and I guess they hadn't done much gigs for years, and I don't know how they performed back in the days, but I really loved the gig, and This was probably one of the best gigs I saw in 2010.
Nice atmospheric gig in Nosturi, I loved that they had lots of different instruments on stage.
I hadn't seen their live performances before the come-back gig, and that ruled. Felt like the whole crowd was singing the songs through.
Such a happy feeling at a nice summer day.
6.86. Rise Against
I listened to their album before I saw them in Ruisrock 2010, but didn't like them at all. But when they actually played, I danced like a retard for the whole gig, and actually enjoyed them. I haven't listened them since thou..
I've seen them twice, and they have given great performance both times. I love the bass-player, he's really into playing, you can see that :).
7.59. The Gathering
How the fuck can Anneke sound even better live than on record?
Great fucking gig, it was their last gig I saw, and the atmosphere was happy and sad.
My friend has hyped this band for a while, and he had extra ticket, so I went to see them. Great gig, and it was sweet that they had two drummers, and they played great together!
Saw them some years back, and it was a great gig, I can't remember much of it, but I can remember I enjoyed it :)
Saw them in Tuska 2010, great performance! They played about completely the "Now, Diabolical",
Saw them twice last year, and the gig in Ruisrock was awesome. I don't know why it didn't strike me at the first time, but the feeling was incredible in the second gig.
Hadn't listened to them before, but the gig was so good, that I got interested.
715. Devin Townsend Band
Devin Townsend Band played two gigs in Tuska 2010, both were great. On the first day they played the Ziltoid The Omniscient, which was entertaining, but as I hadn't listened to that I didn't enjoy it completely. On the second day they played songs from their other albums, and they rocked! Devin is a real character, and it was a joy to watch him play.
The gig wasn't that crowded, but the didn't matter. Great performance, and music.
8.617. The Dillinger Escape Plan
Very energetic gig, seemed like all of the band members enjoyed playing. The performance was great, as they jumped above speakers and the guitarist hung from the light-frames at some point. Great stuff, I want to see them again! :)
7.718. Godspeed You! Black Emperor
7.519. Roger Waters
Roger Waters: The Wall
Well this was worth money well spent. The visual stuff was great and so was the music. I've never been to a big concert like this, but I doubt that they rarely are nearly as good as this was.
6.820. Aphex Twin
Saw him in Ilosaari 2011.
Saw them in Ruisrock 2011. It was hypnotic to watch the bass playing!
