By the name of our site alone, it’s obvious that we are enamored with the albums that come to fruition as a result of the days, weeks, months and, in some cases, years that artists and bands spend holed up in recording studios. But we’re equally inspired by witnessing the songs contained within these LPs come to life on stage firsthand, in our favorite venues across the globe. And it’s this shared devotion to the more experiential elements of our music obsession that has inspired our team to select what we believe to be the 50 greatest live albums ever committed to wax.
