But you're ok with Kanye and Muse? O_o
 
Coldplay does put on an excellent live show, I personally think you just don't like the music which if that's the case, just say that.

Not sure that's entirely true, however I get your point.

I think the level of professionalism, the slick stageshow and lights, the blindingly accurate musicianship, as a package it is hard to beat.

I have to say when these lists come out, they are just that, a list. A bunch of company people got together and said 'hey it's time to do a best of list' usually to boost views /sales. What other purpose is there to put one together ?
Everyone has their favorite and everyone will dispute the list at one point or another.
As a veteran of the touring industry I can honestly say that Rush does have a great production. The best ? IMHO, No. Some artists mentioned above are also very very good. But there are too many ambiguous factors to do such a list, putting one group at the top.  We are talking music and personal tastes. Add in the fact that many musically stellar groups would like to do big productions but cannot because of label budgeting for tours.
To me lists like this are as meaningless as award shows.
