What albums have you heard live in its entirety!

Recommended Posts

I am always excited when I can say I heave heard every song of an artist album live. I know some of you heard a bunch of Wilco albums live in its entirety but was wondering which albums by other artist have you heard in its entirety either in one show or over multiple shows. Ie it took me 18 shows to finally hear all of Born To Run Live...Meeting Across the River is a rareity that I was fortunate enough to finally hear live!


So here goes my list


My first one I heard live


1. Dido-No Angel...I went because Travis was opening. I liked a song or two of hers and stuck around and ended up hearing every song on the album at the concert

2. Guster- Lost and Gone Forever Took me 18 or so shows and finally heard Rainy Day!

3. Beck- Sea Change..heard the full album at one show...have the setlist to prove it!

4. They Might Be Giants- Flood album themed night...all in sequence!

Yeah, I thought you were referring to bands performing an album live, start to finish. I've only witnessed that once, and was lucky enough for it to be the White Stripes - Get Behind Me Satan, on 8/31/05 at the Auditorium Theater in Chicago. :wub


No it doesn't have to be in order or an album themed night. But if it was let me know :) That show would have been awesome to see!


Beethoven's 9th?

The Nutcracker?


Point taken...extra points if it was performed by the original artist! :stunned

I'm pretty sure The Strokes played Is This It straight through when I saw them at the 7th St. Entry in Oct 01.


I heard the European Version of Is This It live with NYC Cops...but the US version is different and features asong they rarley played live..


Radiohead 8/13/08-In Rainbows


I didn't verify this, I read it in a review.

Roger Waters performing Dark Side Of the Moon

He had a crack band and it was a pretty amazing show.

Hell yes! Wow.


Aside from the ATP/Don't Look Back Pitchfork shows of the last few years, I'm pretty sure I've completed a few of the Pearl Jam and My Morning Jacket records. I'd have to check my bootlegs to be certain.

I don't think I would know if I have heard every song off every album. I can only recall the whole album in its entirety thing:


Bonnie "Prince" Billy: I See A Darkness

Ted Leo: Shake the Sheets

Sonic Youth: Daydream Nation

GZA: Liquid Swords

Slint: Spiderland
