Rush should definitely be up there but Waters should have been higher. I was happy to see Prince in there, he's an excellent live performer.

It's good to know that I've seen a third of these live acts. Doubt that I would ever try to see Beyonce, U2, Coldplay or Lady Gaga... btw where was Madonna? Isn't she suppose to be popular?

How can Rush be the best live act???
They don't deviate from anything; close your eyes & you would think you were listening to a record.

After having seen Rush on Monday, I would have to agree.

I agree with Rush being at the top but the appearance of Coldplay in the list negates any validity.

Awful list. There's no band in it I'd really want to see. Was it a public poll? In that case I'd respect it as the expression of a certain demographic. (But what mag/website has a demographic that encompasses prog fans, r&b and rap fans? Geek)

^ A good question, its a magazine that focuses on musicians and not biased to one genre for sure,but I think it is heavier to rock in general rather than hip hop/r&b or jazz. I read the articles/interviews pretty much, I am not a musician so I don't have interest in the equipment they discuss or promote. Their tagline is "The No 1 website for musicians".
I do like the list, don't think its awful at all, because it does have a variety of artists so I don't get the sense it is about just pop music....I mean Lady Gaga was #19, seems this list was not compiled by a bunch of kids or radio stations.
 
Just the fact that an artist like Porcupine Tree are in the top 10 tells me it was very well done..it was a poll voted on by the readers of the magazine. One has to assume a lot of the readers are musicians.
I would say that is a pretty good set of voters.

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.

Some complain about ticket prices....but you do not get short changed at a Rush show.

Glad to see prog bands are far above in the list compared to some of the beginning acts.

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.
