Top 50 Live Performances of 2008

2008 was a huge year for us. We thought it might be easy to count down the best live performances but we saw so many good shows in the end we could only narrow it down to the best 50 shows. This is the last post of the year and hopefully this will keep everyone occupied for the next few days. We also want to thank everyone that helped us out all year, those that came to the shows with us and most importantly those and that check this blog everyday. We will be back on the 1st ready for a new year and with a very special announcement. Till then.....
