Lightbulb Put the good live shows here

Honestly have we ever done this, because I have maybe…three random shows on my hard drive that I've ever listened to

And I don't know what the legendary gigs are, from any era

So here you're just going to put your favorite show and maybe link to it on archive.org, which seems to be a legal thing to do, and we can all sit and enjoy happier times when we thought the abusive-household relationships within the band were kind of funny and cool

And the horrifying extent of Billy's soul-crushing defensive toxicity toward everyone who's ever cared about him was something we saw through a haze of rock idolatry

And you could tell others you were a Pumpkins fan without thinking, like, please don't have heard anything about Billy lately, please

Baby, let's rock

Some favorites:

Rio - January 26, 1996 (Hollywood Rock) - the one where they are all on drugs.
Washington - January 6, 1996 - (9:30 club)- genuinely seem to be enjoying themselves here.
London - May 15, 1996 (Brixton) - peak form

Agreed on all counts.

Fucking insane XYU at Rio:


Brixton was the last time they ever did Jellybelly live, and the last time they ever did the opening acoustic set

I have a short list of all the pro-audio shows that have the best fidelity and proper mixing. It's surprisingly short. I'll dig it out later.

Most of the soundboards (esp all those Machina ones) sound pretty dry. Most of the FM rips are ran through a compressor (last UC show) and sound weird

Phoenix on the Arising tour...one of the best quality boots, and the only show where it actually sounds as if they're all having fun. Banter from Billy, D'arcy, and James, and 1979 as an additional encore.

Eurockéenes 1997. Probably not the best, but it has always been a personal favorite. Has an amazing Ruby version as well

Wow that's cool. Didn't know 1979 even got played on that tour.

I love that one. If Jimmy had been there and they had played “Today” and “Zero” I would consider it perfect.


The back to back guitar solos during that version of “Ruby” are insane

This is so fucking accurate, although I was too young to be a fan in the 90s sadly

Bercy is fucking amazing, especially that AUD source

Shows like that are why I'm so upset Jeff is still in the band

They did play Zero but Billy in his infinite wisdom cut it from the DVD, just like he cut 1979 from the Adore reissue DVD.
