    I gotta go with U2, saw them once a long time ago in Madison Square Garden and they did sound like the record.

    I was especially impressed by this musical moment since I"m not a musician, it was very cool to see the transition from one instrument to the other live.

    cued up.

    That song, yeah. But some of their effects driven stuff from the 90's sounds little like the record. Say like, that guitar sound from Mysterious Ways - the jackhammer thing that begins in the intro. Wasn't replicated live.

    Yeah they got overproduced in later years. I probably saw them around the Rattle and Hum or Achtun Baby era in the early 90s.

    Saw the Eagles in 2007. Pretty much like the record. I think I remember reading an interview with Henley or Frey and they said they play their live shows pretty much like the records because that is what the fans want.

    I've seen rush 10+ and they are pretty much close to the records as well. I think they have to be when they play such complicated music.

    Rush (they're just pros)

    U2 (back on the Joshua Tree tour)

    Midnight Oil (and they did it with some of the best stage energy I've ever seen)

    Bluegrass Bands sound pretty amazing.. a lot of them play very tight, and sound the same as the recordings.
    Doyle Lawson & QuickSilver top my list, followed by Ralph Stanley.

    On the Rock front, I thought Frank Black & the Catholics sounded identical to their album, as did Rush (back in the early 90's)

    You-tubing live stuff, the Pop Band "Muse" sounded pretty close.

    Ditto on the Eagles. Best band I've ever seen live.

    Tesla is also a great live band

    Scorpions were the first that came to mind. So much so, that I thought it was boring.

    U2 for sure. I saw them when Boy and October came out. Very good. Raw, but much like the albums.
    Joshua Tree tour too- but by that time, they has so many click tracks as Edge got technically proficient. Pedals and loops for everything.

    None of them. One of the many reasons I don't like going to big shows.

    SRV did come really close...

    Primus was like listening to an album. They played the complete Frizzle Fry album and it was awesome.

    I also saw Trooper once a couple years back in a smaller bar. Probably only 60 people there and they rocked it like it was a stadium.
