    I got to see this concert one night by accident and I must say this the BEST sounding Metallica concert I've ever heard. James vocals were at it's best and they were all in sinc throughout the entire show. Also the venue was spectacular down in southern France, the fans were one the liveliest as well.



    Peace

    Honourable Mentions:
    NOFX - I Hear They Suck Live!!
    SNFU - The Last of the Big Time Suspenders
    Ozzy Osbourne - Live and Loud
    Rush - Exit, Stage Left


    All the PJ bootlegs are great but I went with my top 20 on wax. Once the Moline vault is on my turntable it will certainly make the list (top 5). It will be the only live album on vinyl in which I was in the audience. I know a lot of people were critical of that vault choice... but I love it. Can’t wait.  
    I don’t have any of the honourable mentions on wax (yet).

    I miss the days of the double-live album....many of the late 70s/early 80s metal bands released some killer live shows!
