What are your thoughts? Have you ever been to see a band, or seen a recorded live performance and been disappointed?

For me it would be 'Evanescence', their recordings are really well mixed but the vocals are horrendous live!

Muse, however, are excellent.

I love the Fleet Foxes album, but they sucked at Glastonbury on the Pyramid Stage, me and my mate were really looking forward to listenin to them. They sounded poor and quite nervous. They probably would have been much on a smaller stage, something a bit more intimate. The Rakes were pretty **** as well.

Neil Young later in the day and Blur on Sunday were immense. Leonard Cohen in Manchester was also quality.

I was SO going to say Evanescence. Amy Lee is a terrible singer live, but she sounds good in the recordings. For this reason I prefer Within Temptation =)

Funeral for a Friend. They really just don't give a ****. They sound alright, but then finish half an hour before curfew, with no encore, and play way too much of their post-Hours stuff.

30 Seconds to Mars, god they were awful. Luckily I didn't pay for the ticket as it was a freebie from a friend who had a spare.

The Fratellis were absolutely awful when I had the misfortune of having to work one of their gigs. The lead vocalist can't sing for ****.

The Big Pink were dreadful also. It was so mind-numbingly boring, standing there while they droned on.

You sir, have excellent taste.

I've watched a lot of their live performances on Youtube. Orgasmic stuff :yep:

not really surprising to be honest, seeing as they're **** recorded as well.

Evanescence I saw them in their early days and she was terrible then too. She needs to learn breathing exercises and how to control her voice better.

I saw Nightwish (with Tarja) live and they were spot on though.

Touché, good sir.

Worst part of the night though was the fact that, after having the Fratellis aurally rape us all, the DJ for the clubnight afterwards decided to play Chelsea Dagger later in the night. Had to hear that **** twice in one night!!

Probably going to upset a lot of people here, but Red Hot Chili Peppers. Saw them at Reading a couple of years ago and they were just boring.

Also Vampire Weekend.

And a fair few emo bands I saw back in the day, but I won't embarrass myself by mentioning them...

I also saw RHCP at Reading a few years ago and they were *****, however at Earls Court they were amazing. Not sure what went wrong at Reading, but it didn't do their live performing justice at all.

I saw the red hot chilli peppers about 6 years ago performing with James Brown as a support act (I know wth?) in Cardiff.

Let's just say James Brown blew them out of the water.
