To quote the late,
great Jimi Hendrix: ‘Music doesn’t lie. If there is something to be changed in
this world, then it can only happen through music.’ The infinite power of music is almost
unfathomable, and throughout the ages there have been so many defining moments
that has shaped its legacy, from the release of Beethoven’s 9th symphony, to
‘the day the music died’ and the inauguration of MTV and the cultural phenomenon
it would eventually become.
At its core, music has always been about the connection
between the artist and the audience, and because of this the live music experience
can become so iconic for several different reasons; they can be shaped by the
current political climate or world events, they can be the comeback of a once
iconic act or can simply be the debut of a legendary artist.
For one reason or
another, the events within this article have had such incredible historical and
cultural significance that they have remained in our collective consciousness
throughout the ages, and will no doubt live long on in our memories.
