Sometimes fans aren’t lucky enough to see their favourite metal band live, either they don’t live in the right place, or they are too young of a fan to see one of the pioneers of metal music live.

It’s easy for stuff to get a little bit out of control when there are nine member of the band. It also makes for a very interesting live show! No matter where or when Slipknot performed, they were always able to keep their fans entertained and keep them coming back for more. It is truly a feast for the eyes, so have a look at their shows online, it’s not the same but it’s as close as you can get for now.



If you are looking for fire and pyrotechnics, then look no further then Rammstein live shows. They seem to be able to always take it to another level and just keep setting the bar for themselves higher and higher. The Rammstein signer has even spent songs engulfed in fire before. If that’s not enough to keep you on the edge of your seat, nothing will.


Iron Maiden

One of the best heavy metal bands of all time, for a reason, and one of them being that they are awesome live performers.

Black Sabbath

While some of their earlier shows didn’t have much of the way of set design and other features to look at, fans didn’t really mind, all they cared about was the amazing voice of Ozzy Osbourne (before he got the boot in 1979) and the other members of the band. If you are looking for classic metal live performances, make sure you check out some of the performances from the great Black Sabbath.
