I can't see every band I like when they tour my area (it's so expensive these days!) and some bands I will never get to see because they have long since broken up. However, a great alternative is concert DVDs. Unlike YouTube they're always high quality, and even though you're at home you have the best seats in the house. Check them out! Happy listening/viewing.

The Battle of Mexico City

Outside Mexico City's Sports Pavilion, hundreds of young Rage Against the Machine fans rattle metal fences and throw rocks at the increasingly nervous police. Inside, a seething crowd of 5,000 lucky ticket holders cram into the cavernous pavilion chanting anti-government slogans and poking their middle fingers into the thick, sweaty air while waiting for Rage Against the Machine to storm the stage. One of the greatest live acts in music history, Rage only affirms that fact with this show.
