Oh god...  you’re gonna have to give me a genre...

I put on Van Halen live right here right now earlier today. Gotta include live without a net if you’re going that direction

ive got all of Dream Theater’s live dvds. Not only is the music tight. But their commentaries are actually pretty informative and funny. 

the G3 dvds are worth it.

David Gilmour, Live at Royal Albert, Live at Gdansk, etc. There are lots of David Gilmour live vids on Youtube.

If you want heavier, Johnathan Davis, I Play Alone.

If you want symphonic metal, Nightwish, Wacken Openair.

If you are really cool, A Perfect Circle, Stone and Echo.

All on YouTube.

Wow, thanks folks, great suggestions. Gonna create a library of shows for my pole barn (man cave) and just installed a 70" flat screen. Mish mash of sound: Yamaha receiver, soon to be replaced cheapo Magnavox DVD player, vintage Infinity subwoofer, vintage Sony 3 way floor speakers (rear), Polk towers in the front and a Klipsch center. Nothing super high quality, but everything except the DVD player is nice stuff and the sound inside the finished 45x45' barn is terrific, to me.

For what it's worth here's an incomplete list of my collection so far.....

Sheryl Crow - Cmon America, Dayton  '03

REM - Perfect Square, Wiesbaden Germany '03

Jake's Leg - 30 Years Show, St. Louis, '06

Los Lonely Boys - Texican Style, Austin '04

Widespread Panic - Austin City Limits Halloween Show '00

Dead - a bunch, I like them all

Festive Express Various Artists, Canada '70

U2 - Rattle and Hum, '88

Yes - Philly '79

Neville Brothers - Tell It Like It Is, New Orleans '89

I'm waiting for a right mood to play Pink Floyd Pulse (mushrooms) and an INXS (beer and whiskey) show, just got them.

 

Thanks again folks, please keep the suggestions coming.
