When you are busy with all the live shows and bands, world music and jazz music, it takes time to come back and do a pop album. It needs its own length of time.
Shankar Mahadevan
I have loved doing live shows and that gives me a pump.
Mandira Bedi
We’re seeing how the videos translate to the live shows and how the technology is really reaching kids.
Willie Aames
I feel, in my live shows, I can be as dynamic as I want. It’s my comfort zone. When I get in the studio, it’s more of a solitary experience, which can be good creatively.
It’s been a very strange trajectory because I struggled for so many years. I mean, I was doing these videos, I was doing these live shows, I had a lot of fans in New York, the press would write about me, but I couldn’t get a paying job, and so my father and I were really like a team.
Billy Eichner
I didn’t think of myself as a lead player, especially when we did live shows, because me and Keith used to switch around all the time. He’d take a lead, I’d play rhythm. Sometimes even within one song. It wasn’t strict and regimented.
Mick Taylor
I get a lot of inspiration from the audience feedback to our live shows.
Donnie Iris
Our fans are so rabid, the live shows, they actually feel like concerts.
Sal Vulcano
I think that live shows are more important for singers than composers, because composers still get a lot of recognition as compared to a singer.
Armaan Malik
The best part about live shows is you have a script, and you throw it out after the first five minutes.
Valentin Chmerkovskiy
There are three things we need to do for a band. We need to make a great record; we need to get the record played; and we need to find an audience for the live shows.
Kiefer Sutherland
I’m ashamed to say it, but I watch YouTube videos of our live shows, wondering if it actually sounded the way it sounded when I was playing it, and the consistent thing I see is that you can feel the anxiety and the tension and it’s over-aggressive a lot of the time.
Justin Chancellor
The only goal is in the process. The process is in the thing with little flashes of light: those are the gigs, the live shows… it’s the life in between. That’s all I’ve got.
Jeff Buckley
I always tell my audiences not to listen to such artists who play audio CDs at their concerts. Such shows shouldn’t be called live shows. People like AR Rahman, Sunidhi Chauhan, and Arijit Singh are the ones who hold true concerts.
Guru Randhawa
My only general rule was to steer away from things I played with the band over the past couple of tours. I was interested in re-shaping the Rising material for live shows, so people could hear the bare bones of that.
Bruce Springsteen
I go to New York to see live shows, not movies.
Gad Elmaleh
Well, for the reasons I mention above, although I am not sure the live shows were really so brilliant – but nobody could hear much so perhaps it did not matter! It was certainly a very exciting time for us all.
Peter Asher
I worked with Carl Perkins on a number of shows. Live shows. He just showed up and played. He just killed. Killed! Man… he was amazing!
Lesley Gore
One reason I do the live shows – and the monthly speeches at public radio stations – is to remind myself that people hear the show, that it has an audience, that it exists in the world. It’s so easy to forget that.
Ira Glass
When I go to my live shows it’s often a multigenerational audience, a family bonding experience.
Al Yankovic
We love ‘I’m a Celebrity,’ ‘Britain’s Got Talent,’ ‘Saturday Night Takeway,’ but they’re all live shows.
Ant McPartlin
Well, it’s been an interesting career. Since I last appeared on ‘Top Of The Pops,’ I’ve been doing about 150 live shows every year. The live shows have always been well received and they consistently worked, it’s just the records that haven’t been very good.
John Otway
I love acting on television and look forward to more roles, for sure. And I also love and need to perform live shows.
Michael Carbonaro
I’m a seeker of transcendence through music, and that’s kind of where I’m at with the live shows – wanting to help people get out of their heads a little bit.
Cody Simpson
I love to perform. I love live shows.
Jordan Fisher
Live shows were always religion for us. We never played a show – whether it was in front of 15 people or 15,000 – where it wasn’t everything we had that night.
Neil Peart
I do really long DJ sets – I play for five or six hours sometimes – but the live shows are a bit more compact. The arch of how to tell a story, where the energy is, where you have peaks and drops, where things go up and things come down, that’s all being informed by DJ-ing.
I think people need to have fun with whatever they’re doing – makeup, their clothes, music, live shows – anything you don’t need to take too seriously, don’t take too seriously.
Through the years I’ve found that I prefer live playing to recording. I still do lots of recording – but I treasure the live shows.
Tony Levin
At the end of the day, a playback singer has to depend on live shows as their source of income.
Armaan Malik
I only want to do live shows. What happens with TV shows is you can’t always do things live.
Nadine Coyle
There are some commercial artists that have number one

There are some commercial artists that have number one after number one, and you go to their show, and the show’s one-note. Yeah, they’re all hit songs. But there’s no emotion, because they’re the same kind of hit songs, because they’re what works at radio. That kills live shows for me.
Eric Church
Live shows have been going on for so long, can you really do something that’s never been done before?
Tyler Joseph
Very early on, when I started doing these plays and live shows, I would travel from city to city, and there were a million shows out there… so I wanted to step out among it, and I started putting my name above the title.
Tyler Perry
I love watching live shows from different artists from different stages of their lives. I’m always interested in the mastery of the live performance.
Stjepan Hauser
It’s not like making records is terrible. Still, I do find the writing of the songs and the live shows to be the things that give you the most clear picture of what it’s all about.
Steve Forbert
I think from doing so many live shows it gives you a real appreciation of being present. You don’t know what’s going to happen, you don’t know what is around the corner.
Declan Donnelly
We’ve always wanted to do it, something you could dance to, and deep down we always thought we could bring something to the table if we could do it, but the live shows always made us pull back and be a rock band.
Frank Iero
If you really see how many live shows are going on… you can start to do things that are out of the ordinary.
