The best live performances that I watched and listened to in 2016!

If I counted correctly, I’ve seen 78 bands/performers (including at festivals and maybe I missed an opening act here or there) performing live in 2016 (excluding coverbands). The festivals I attended were Pinkpop Festival and Sziget Festival Official and I also visited the Popronde Heerlen (a travelling festival for up and coming Dutch bands).

In the end I made a Top 15 list of best performances, but first some special recommendations for bands/performers, that didn’t make that Top 15.

Muse was one of the headliners atp szigetfestival and although I never was a huge Muse-fan, it was perhaps the best festival performance I ever saw by them, musically very persuasive. Rammstein was the best headliner at Pinkpop 2016 and also Skillet and newcomers Nothing But Thieves played very well there. In the category newcomers I would also like to mention the Australian band DMA’s, a very nice performance at the Luxor in Cologne. Talking about Australia, this year I also saw AC/DC again, a band, which already wun my concert-yearlist twice, a.o. last year. At Werchterpark in Belgium it was a great gig again, and this time it was with guest singer Axl Rose, who did convince me in this role, which promises a lot for the Guns N’Roses concert I will be attending next summer. I watched the show from a considerable distance this time around and because of the repetition it moved me a a bit less than the concert last year. Repetition, this is not strange for my visits to concerts of Fish, ik saw him in 2016 for the 11th time, no other artist I saw more. Perhaps this was the last time, as he has been talking about retirement. The circle is round, because I saw him first in 1985 with Marillion and now it was the tour in honour of 30-years “Misplaced Childhood”, the first and last show by Fish therefore included a fully performed version of that album.

Also some honorable mention for the best opening acts, starting with Sundara Karma (who opened for Wolf Alice). Tyler Bryant and The Shakedown I saw twice opening, the first time for AC/DC,but they really made an impression when they were the pre-show for The Cadillac Three. There are 2 more opening acts I like to mention, which I both saw twice too in 2016, Slaves already made an impression on Stage 4 at Pinkpop, but as opening act for Foals at Budapest Park they really were the best opening act of the year!. Yet one other mention and this is local pride Storsky, I saw them first during the Popronde Heerlen and later as opener for Drive Like Maria, and they did well! And know that I mentioned the Popronde Heerlen, the band I liked most on that occassion was Orange Maplewoord.

Enough honorable mentions, without delay we move on to the TOP 15:

15 Halestorm – Pinkpop Landgraaf (NL) - 11/06/2016
No nonsense hard rock with a real rockdiva, the 4th live show very good again.

14 CHVRCHES – Sziget Boedapest (HU) – 15/08/2016
Sadly enough I didn’t see the concert in its entirity, because of a doube schedule with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, but what I did see and hear made such an impression that they did reach this Top 15.

13 Editors – Sziget Boedapest (HU) – 12/08/2016
Not on the main stage, but in the (mega) A38-tent, still the best show of Sziget 2016.

12 Doe Maar – Pinkpop Landgraaf (NL) – 11/06/2016
A feast of recognition with the most popular Dutch (language) band of the 80’s, but also still extremely good.

11 Puscifer – Pinkpop Landgraaf (NL) – 11/06/2016
No Tool this year, but this band with their singer Maynard James Keenan has shifted musically more into that direction and that’s nice, because their earlier work wasn’t really my thing, but now I really enjoyed that phenomenal voice and the funny wrestlingshow.

10 Battles – Doornroosje Nijmegen (NL) – 20/09/2016
An entirely instrumental and experimental band is not for everyone, but obviously I dig it.

09 Foals – Budapest Park (HU) – 17/08/2016
Foals are a regular in my concert-yearlist, last year the gave the best festivalperformance of the year (nr. 4 in de total list) and this year I even saw them twice, the gig at the Sziget After Party made the best impression.

08 Lionel Richie – Pinkpop Landgraaf (NL) – 12/06/2016
My favorite festivalshow in 2017, pure nostalgia maybe, but I loved it.

07 Indian Askin – Oefenbunker Landgraaf (NL) – 18/11/2016
A formidable new Dutch band, super-enthusiastic, a very mixed style of music, which rocks live even more as on record.

06 The Cadillac Three – Luxor Köln (DE) – 16/11/2016
Southern booze rock at its best and a guitarist in Jeff Healey-style.

05 Holy Holy – Merleyn Nijmegen (NL) – 22/09/2016
Real classic guitarbands, they still exist, maybe you have to import them from the other side of the world, but than you really got something.

04 Drive Like Maria – Nieuwe Nor Heerlen (NL) – 30/10/2016
The best Dutch concert-act of the jaar, here also great guitar riffs and amazing new songs, they would have deserved an even fuller house.

03 Wolf Alice – Club Bahnhof Ehrenfeld Köln (DE) – 12/02/2016
Behind 2 older acts, the leaders of the new music generation in this lijst, how amazing they already are at this time!

02 Billy Joel – Commerzbank Arena Frankfurt (DE) – 03/09/2016
Finallly I saw the ‘Piano Man’ live and what a pleasure to liste to, although there were some sound troubles at the start, which seems to be not rare at that venue. But standing just in front of the soundtower I enjoyed it from start to end.

01 Queen + Adam Lambert – RheinEnergie Stadion Köln (DE) – 27/05/2016
Of course Freddie was (a big part of) Queen and there is no comparison, but closer to an original Queen-performance I will never get anymore and Lambert does have a great voice as well as, maybe on another level, a similar charisma. Besides that Taylor and May are still top musicians, Freddie occasionally on screen and only classics, a night edged in my memory.

Well it is a good mix of old/experienced and new/fresh bands, I would say. Next year we will hold on to that, I already mentioned Guns N’Roses, but also Phil Collins is on the schedule, but also concertpremieres for Airbag and the young hounds of Highly Suspect, which I am really looking forward to.
