Most memorable live performances?

I know we have a thread about memorable concert experiences, btu that only seems to be about full concerts you've actually been too.
This thread of more for performances of specific songs whether you've seen them live or just watched the performance over the internet or off a DVD.

So which performances have been really memorable for you?
Which performances have been the most touching, fun, energetic, moving or powerful in your opinion.

Here's my little list:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3A6ASY0WFc
^^^
Oboetete ii yo (Live in Yokohama arena 2006) - KOTOKO
(Another song chosen for the 'fun'-factor, and also audience participation, she actually out there in the audience running around them and playing with massive balloons, occasionally having them bounce into her and then she ends up laughing. You don't usually have this much audience-artist interaction)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InoIKFubE6Y
^^^
Can You Celebrate? - Namie Amuro
(This one was chosen because of the raw emotion you can see here. She's not doing a lot, but you're drawn to it because she's just sharing her emotions through the song.)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxixVtQuIwI
^^^
Hurry Up! (Live from TRICK tour 2009) - Koda Kumi
(I choose this one because it's so incredibly energetic and so much fun. Her vocals are amazing, really powerful and she really has fun with the song. It doesn't look too polished or perfect or choreographed, she just looks like she's enjoying herself)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3oc_uDjyW8
^^^
Moon Crying (Live from TRICK tour 2009) - Koda Kumi
(Amazingly emotional song, she starts crying half-way through, a huge contrast to Hurry Up! and yet she performs it perfectly)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8DIgQvPHLsc
^^^
Ashita e no Sanka (Live from the -voice of you- 2010 tour) - alan
(This one, well the only thing that can really describe it 'OMFG HER VOICE IS EPIC', that's really the best and most accurate reaction to it. Those notes she pulls off here, well, it best just to listen to it rather than have me describe it)

And now we come to the woman with some of the single best concerts you will ever see (She needs a mini-list of her own) Everything she does seems to be so filled with emotion, you can really feel how important her songs are to her. You don't get that with many artists now-a-days.
Ayumi Hamasaki

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGNHXUJG1Jw
^^^
I am... (Live from Arena Tour 2002)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJj2HQtsYVQ
^^^
A song for xx (Live at a'nation 2009)

Right I'm not gonna bore you with Ayumi's video, but I will post this last one, and if you're only going to watch one fo these videos then let it be this one, because it really is just jaw-droppingly amazing. One of her definitive live performances, it's not fancy with lots of props and light, it's just so powerful and epic and so emotional.

Nirvana Unplugged Live in New York. Watched it because my buddy turned it on-and it just blew me away. Made me a Nirvana fan right there and then.

Re: Most memorable live performances?

One of the best live performances I ever saw was Mandy Patinkin in concert, singing "Sonny Boy," in honor of his friend Joseph Papp, who used to sing that song with his son at parties. His son died of AIDS, and Joe asked Mandy to sing the song at the funeral. A few years later, Joseph died. Mandy said that he always thought Joe died of a broken heart.

Mandy then sang the song, and the entire audience just dissolved into tears. It was a hell of a performance.

Are we talking about TV performances or just concerts that we've been to?

Either... can be from TV, from a show you've personally attended or from a live DVD concert
As long as you find it memorable in some way

Ok, in that case, for me it has to be last year when I went to see Bachman Cummings, ie Burton Cummings and Randy Bachman of The Guess Who and performing both BTO and Guess Who hits. It was a very epic evening. One of my favourite moments of the night was when during American Woman, Burton hands Randy a drumstick and starts doing an amazing guitar solo with it. It was incredible.
