Lately I've been wanting to introduce some people to the band through their live performance, but once I got to think which concert should I show them I came to the conclusion that there's not a single video that would sum up what the band is all about. The two best perfomances that came to mind, recorded in Pro Shoot are Finsbury Park '03 and Rock Am Ring '01. The first one is almost perfect except for one thing: Mike Smith is there instead of Wes. The later one I feel it's pretty old, back when not even Eat You Alive was recorded.

 

So what do you think, which one is the BEST performance in Pro Shoot by the band and also which concert would be the best example to introduce new people to the band?

Rock in Rio 2012

Lisboa, Portugal

May 26, 2012

 

Hands down the best pro-shot footage of the band ever. It's a shame that it's a short set because that entire concert was just...the band was on fire, the fans were going wild to every song, etc. etc. I mean, that was lightning in a bottle for them.

 

Remember how jazzed we all were about that one when it first happened? Fred and Wes even took to Twitter only minutes after their set ended talking about, "That was fucking wild! Thanks, Portugal!" They never do that...or if they do, they do it hours after it's over or the next day. Hands down it's that one, VeLoCi.

That would be a very good pic,that show was phenomenal.

I'd also suggest,as far as pro-shot material,the Download 2009 set and the festival they did in France in 2011. There's Lethal as well,so...That's,if your friends don't want to spend more than 1 hour in front of a youtube video and only want crystal clear footage. Otherwise,if they're more patient and willing to invest in it,there are many bootlegs in very good quality of some headlining shows,like the Russian ones from 2013 and 2012. You have a wide choice. Just make sure to pick up shows from the comeback era 'cause their heyday is long gone and it wouldn't make sense to show your friends where the band was 14 years ago,making them look like has-beens.

I'd vote for Download 09, such a epic show from both the band and the fans.

Download '09 I don't like too much as the energy isn't the same as it was back in their prime, while it's true in Rock In Rio the band brought out the best they have now. The thing is, with older crowds you can see a massive sea of people all cheering for LB, while now you get one of their best shows while the crowd is a bit busy singing In The End.

 

Woodstock is obviously legendary and probably their best show ever but I don't want to show them that one as it not only is really old but also doesn't feature the most recognizable songs that they already know, like Rollin'.

 

So yeah, so far I'm down with Handprint's choice. Any more suggestions?

I'd vote Big Day Out 2001 if we had more than just "Break Stuff" out of it. 

 

But i vote for Rock Am Ring 2009.

 

Decent setlist, lethal does a reat job, wes outfit is dope, awesome camera work, great audio quality, great crowd interaction, germany always killing it.

 

Fred's vocals are not that great but we never know what happened, maybe he was just tired or sick.

Finsbury Park hands down! Amazing audio quality, sounds like a fucking chainsaw being put  next to your ear. Hot Dog crushes!  Close to that is Electric Factory Ballroom from 03. At that show Fred has given his best live performance ever!

Caution: listen loud!!

That show at the Electric Ballroom looked and sounded awesome. Fred and the band,despite the difficult time they were going through,really stepped up their game several notches in 2003. If more into the "just rocking the fuck out" side of LB shows,the RMV era shows are really good picks. Fact is every live era of LB is lacking in something,be it Wes,be it Lethal,be it some of the classics we grew to love etc. It depends on what you want your friends to take away most from watching a LB gig on the internet.

Holy shit, I've never watched the Monsters of Rock 2013 set before. LB came on stage to the Clockwork Orange theme, that's fucking awesome. How long have they been using that?

Just a little note, The Electric Factory doens't have the word Ballroom in it. But yes, That show was amazing. I was at that show and it was incredible, although Last year's show topped it since I was able to enjoy it more, and Wes was back.

 

Also, Woodstock is probably the best best performance, followed by Rock Am Ring 2009.

Rock Am Ring '09 their second best show ever? WTF?

 

After every 4 minute song they were taking 9 minute breaks on that one. The show itself wasn't too bad, but nothing too memorable to point it out as the second best in their career.

This might be my new favorite Pro-Shot show.  Fred acts like a huge dick during the show, but to me this best represents the band at the height of their power, when they had the fire, were on the verge of exploding but weren't quite the "pop superstars" they eventually became with CS.  Quality-wise I think this sounds even better than Woodstock, but ironically Fred is bitching about the sound throughout the whole show so it's probably not the best show to introduce the band with.  Still, this represents my favorite era of LB.
