Tag Archive: Rock am Ring

Hey! Been working on this post all evening/night, and finally done, I don’t want to wait any longer to publish it. Inspired by Loudwire’s list of 10 unforgettable crowd participation moments (which you can find here), I wanted to make a list myself. It contains my favorites, including many of the suggestions made in the comment section on YouTube, which, in my opinion, were far better than many of the one’s on Loudwire’s list.
This is in no particular order, so don’t come complaining about that to me. I’m doing it this way because many of them are equally great in different ways, with their own qualities and moods which they evoke.

Avenged Sevenfold – Unholy Confessions (Live in Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA, 2014)


Foo Fighters – My Hero (Live in Bogotá, Colombia, 2015)


Linkin Park – In The End (Live at Rock Am Ring in Mendig, Germany, 2004)


Metallica – Creeping Death (Live in Moscow, Russia, 1991)


Slash, Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators – Sweet Child O’ Mine (Live in Mumbai, India, 2015)


Disturbed  – Down With The Sickness (Live at Rock Am Ring in Mendig, Germany, 2008)


Evanescence  – My Immortal (Live in Paris, France, 2004)


Rammstein – Du Hast (Live at Download Festival, Leicestershire, England, 2013)


AC/DC – Thunderstruck (Live in Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2011)


Machine Head – Darkness Within (Live in London, England, 2014)


So, here you have it. I personally think these are just as good or even better than the list Loudwire made, even though several of the ones on Loudwire’s list were great (I couldn’t just copy it either, could I?). I could go on and on about things you should notice, like the band’s reaction to the fans, or the sheer loudness and harmony of the crowd. This kind of interaction between artists and fans is an extraordinary phenomenon.
I want to know what are your contribution(s) to the list, what do you think I should check out? Are there even better versions of the artists and songs I’ve chosen? Please leave a comment below.

Hey there! I though that since so many enjoyed the last live show of Evanescence, I could post a great video shot from Evanescence’s concert at Rock am Ring in Germany this year. This time it’s the entire concert in one video (thank God!). The only thing that sucks about this live take is that we miss the beginning of What You Want because of the show hosts, but otherwise this is a great concert by Evanescence, that really rocks! (Of course, it’s called Rock am Ring for a reason!).


Slightly disturbing those huge yellow balloons they trow around, but otherwise a great show. Thought it was a bit funny when Amy repeatedly said “Danke” (which means thank you). Also loved the idea that they started with a new song, and ended it all with Bring Me To Life. The audience was much better here than in Morocco, though. At this concert they actually sung along and cheered a lot, and I can’t help myself but smiling when they went wild between every time Amy sung “I can’t see your star”, (in the song Your Star, obviously!) and it seems Amy couldn’t either.
