I recently came across a great post on Earvolution, where David Schultz wrote about what he believes are the “Eleven Most Resonant Live Concert Performances of all Time.”
A group of performances that had relevance beyond the notes that were played and resonated well beyond the time and place of their occurrence.
I liked David's post so much I figured it'd be cool to capture all the great concert videos he recommended so you can watch them right here on Jamtopia.
Here's his list. Just click a link to jump to the concert video…
