I thought it was listed in order and started twitching lol. 

This list really the shows how depleted we are when it comes to raw, live talent anymore. It's like someone just said 'Shit, we need at least one more from this dismal decade of music. Let's throw 1989 in there' Utter bullshit. She has no place on this list of legends. 

And I strongly believe that DWT should have been on this list. That show was ahead of it's time once again when it came out. Steps above the rest of the bubblegum pop concerts that were littering stadiums.

It was going along great till Taylor Swift and Beyonce (I'm guessing Gaga couldn't buy herself a spot?) came up. Janet's Velvet Rope or Rhythm Nation Tour should be in there instead of those two.

Yeah, I'd throw one of Janet's tours on there. The Velvet Rope tour really was fantastic. In my opinion, she was at her best during this tour. I think she was a little shaky on the Rhythm tour. 

Opinions of Beyonce aside, she's one of the best live performers of this shitty generation. the Formation tour absolutely deserves to be on that list.

Wait...Michael Jackson missed the list entirely but Taylor Swift is there? :sneaky:

Well they probably demanded a certain ratio of live singing to make the cut.

LMAO No it doesn't!! Take away all the pyrotechnics and the huge screen and you got yourself another basic Unbreakable Tour. Same old leotards, same old hair flips+angry stare choreographies from 8+ years ago set to the same remixes from 8+ years ago, with no narrative, no nothing. I'll never understand the constant Beyonce asskissing. There is absolutely NOTHING groundbreaking or revolutionary about that overrated bitch and her overrated basic tour.

Last time I cared about one of Beyoncé's concerts was in 2008.

Couldn't have said it better.  It feels so forced to see her name on these types of lists.

and Taylor Swift too?  Give me a break.

I'm glad Madonna is on the list, but there are some real questionable choices there.
