The Greatest Live Bands of All Time

List Criteria: Only a band's live show and not their studio albums. No pop stars

List of the greatest live bands or artists of all time, created and ranked by music fans worldwide asks the question "who is the best live act of all time"? What band or artist had such an impact up on that stage that it took their music to a whole new level? Maybe they had a spectacular stage show - like Floyd - or maybe they just overpowered you with their live presence - like Bruce. Or maybe their music just sounded better in person. Whatever your criteria, vote and rank the musicians you think had the absolute best live act of all time. If you see a group or artist that is missing, be sure to add to this list of the best live bands of all time!
