Live. In the age of the studio and digital downloads, that four-letter word stands as the true test of the performers talent and the fans commitment.

The true greats deliver in concert, and every once in a while they deliver with a sound and fury that rings through the ages. James Brown at the Apollo. Led Zeppelin at Earls Court. Nirvana at Reading. The night Tupac, Biggie and Big Daddy Kane found a stage big enough to share at Madison Square Garden. Radiohead at Glastonbury. Some shows crystallize a particular moment in a great performers career, like Bowies farewell to Ziggy Stardust at the Hammersmith and Princes epic set at the Forum at the height of his purple reign. Some*the original Woodstock, The Last Waltz, Lollapalooza 91 and Coachella 99*define an era.

The live moment can be hard to capture with a microphone or a camera, let alone on the page. In veteran music writer Corbin Reiffs deep dive through decades of epic gigs*often including interviews with the participants*he brings these concerts crackling back to life with revealing and lost details about what it was like on the stage and in the hall. Here are the cultural contexts, the backstage dramas, the split-second artistic decisions and the technical details behind the best shows of our amplified age. Year by year, concert by concert, this is a book thats loud and guaranteed to start an argument.
