The problem with music lists is that die hard fans of every band not included are going to have an issue, and die hard fans of bands included who think their favorite band should rank higher are going to have a issue. A fan’s love affair with a band and its music can easily be destroyed by a less than impressive live presence, however there are a few select bands who have gone down in history as the most amazing to see live. Unfortunately for us, a lot of rock’s best live acts are now considered “Classic Rock” and we will never experience them at the peak of their fame. Take a look at some of the best Classic Rock acts to ever grace a stage and packed venue.
9. The Grateful Dead
The Grateful Dead without a doubt have one of the most devoted fan bases of all time. Formed in 1965, they are still touring today, as fans (Deadheads) dutifully follow them from show to show. One of the best things about The Grateful Dead is that fans never know what to expect. Organized and rehearsed shows were never a part of their game-plan resulting in a slew of the best performances ever put on by a band.
