Live shows are awesome. Full of energy. Full of people. Full of sweat. Some artists like to recreate their music as close to their records as possible, others like to add a little spice to their live performances. Either way, we love seeing are favourite artists in flesh and blood.
For me, the best live performance I've seen was from the band Deafheaven (this music isn't for everyone so proceed with caution). The energy in the room was incredible. When the gig was over, I felt like I'd just been chucked of a speeding bus. They sound was amazing and replicate the record perfectly. I'm looking forward to the next time they're in the UK.
For me, the best live performance I've seen was KEANE in Jakarta 2012. Tom's vocal on live performance were so awesome and in my opinion it's better than the record. The crowd was also incredible and we all sang along to their songs. I'm really looking forward if someday they will ever come to my city again.
