I'm watching old videos of rock bands playing live, and it looks like a majority of them saw it necessary to wear some out-of-left-field garb while performing.
 
What's everyone's thoughts on bands that wear uniforms on stage? Does it add, take away, or do nothing to the experience of the show? Have you ever seen a band that plays concerts dressed up in any particular attire?

I think it's fun; helps lighten things up and sometimes makes the music more immersive. I sometimes forget that Jethro Tull is from the 1970s and not medieval times, or that Yes is actually from Earth.

Much of the fun of attending Yes concerts in the 1970s was to check out their fashions!!  Chris Squire in particular was a fashion plate! 

The "Relayer" tour saw the boys in fine garb, Steve Howe wore this ensemble....

Not a uniform but probably more 'out-of-left-field' (Diaper Man, of Parliament-Funkadelic)

I agree, the visuals indeed help the performance and enhance the music, adding to the experience in a positive way.

well, Glam rock had its impact onto the other fringes of rock; i bet Peter Gabriels outfits stems partly from influence of glam rock like Bowie, T-rex, Alice Cooper but also influence from pantomime can be talked about and Arthur Brown had an impact on stage costumes. Roxy Music had also impact on bands wearing outfits on stage and uniformality.
