Its 11/11, I bet you’re wishing for some great live performances to watch on this blue Tuesday, I know I sure as hell am. Well on this rendition of Tuesday’s top videos, I’ve put together some amazing live shows that’ll have you blown away. Sit back, hold tight, and watch some these crazy performances you probably would have never guessed happened.
In tribute to the end of Arcade Fire’s epic Reflektor tour, here’s a little piece the band did on The Tonight Show before going on tour. Win Butler does an interesting selfie point of view shooting of parts of the video and creepily staring into the camera might I add. Also, here’s one of my favorite songs from The Suburbs, they played this wonderful song live in L.A. at the Forum during the Reflektor tour.
What do Jay – Z, Linkin Park, and Paul McCartney have in common? Well, not much that I can ever really think of, but at the 48th Grammy Awards in 2006 they came together to put on this epic piece for the audience in attendance. After Paul had played “Fine Line” and “Helter Skelter” he came back out to put on one more performance and trust me it did not disappoint.
Jack White took to the road this summer after the release of his new album Lazaretto. It seemed all summer long Jack White and Arcade Fire kept going back and forth with insane live performance after insane live performance. This little clip features White shredding “Icky Thump” into a Jay-Z piece I think many of you may be familiar with at Forecastle Music Festival in Louisville.
Here’s a tribute to the King of Pop, the man who made live performances and music videos something more than the mere playing of songs. At the 30th Grammy Awards in 1988 Michael Jackson performed “The Way You Make Me Feel” and “Man In The Mirror”. The performance showcased some of the moves that made the King of Pop arguably the best dancer off all time. In addition, the lower video shows Jackson doing his famous moonwalk for the first time live.
