Interesting topic. This article raises its picks. For the most part, they are bands that I do not know, which is actually kinda helpful. I own the live albums that you would think I'd own (the TTB "Everybody's Talking" and "Live at Oakland,", the ABB's One Way Out, etc) as a member of this site, but this list points me in some new directions:

A few possibilities for Derek Trucks Band (Live @ Georgia Theatre, Songlines Live, Roadsongs).

Jeff Beck Live at Ronnie Scotts

Didn't Allison Krause put out a live album with Union Station in the early 2000s? Or was that late 90s?

That list is a little too hip for its own good. Trying a bit too hard.

I do have the Wilco, My Morning Jacket, White Stripes and R.E.M. from their list though.

Zambi's list is good, I would also add

Clapton/Winwood At MSG
Gov't Mule The Deepest End
Iron Maiden Rock In Rio
Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band Live in NYC
Jason Isbell Live From Alabama
Los Lobos Live At The Fillmore

Just off the top of my head...

I read this earlier today, some interesting choices. I've always liked the AV Club, but their music coverage isn't their strong suit.

Off this list I have and really like Okonokos, by My Morning Jacket. Great live album to workout with.

The Neko Case selection is pretty good also.

Have no idea why Roadsongs by DTB is not on this. Version of Anyday is my all-time favorite.

Another couple are Live In Atlanta by Lucero and It's Great To Be Alive by The Drive By Truckers.

I listened to Alive & Wired by Old 97's the other day. Very good.

Joe Bonamassa, Live From Royal Albert Hall is very good. Clapton & Paul Jones kick butt.

Great call on the Lucero Live in Atlanta release.

I would guess that Joe Bonamassa has released roughly 50% of all of the live albums in the 21st century.

The R.E.M., Wilco, My Morning Jacket, Sleater-Kinney are all good. Should check out the Tom Waits one sometime.

I like the Hall of Fame releases Umphrey's McGee puts out every year. They highlight some of the best live songs from that year.

Dave Matthews Band- The Central Park Concert
Live In The Classic City- Widespread Panic
Wood- Widespread Panic
Hill Country Revue- North Mississippi Allstars
Before The Frost...Until The Freeze-Black Crowes (Recorded with a studio audience)
Live at the Roxy- Brothers of a Feather
The Woodstock Sessions- Rich Robinson
I like what I have heard from the Betty Blends releases from Chris Robinson Brotherhood

I can think of anything earth shattering as far as live albums of the 21st century. Some decent recordings I am sure but the live albums of 70's seem to reign supreme.

I could go through and make a great mix of the ABB, Mule, The Crowes with all of they're live stuff put out to download. Deep Purple has been pretty prolific with live releases also.

We have been listening to Redbird- live at the cafe carpe quite a bit over the last few months. Good stuff.

Rich Robinson -Live At The Knitting Factory is a good listen.

Cool to see Lucero getting mentioned here. That live album has been in constant rotation on my commute for a few years now. They don't sound like the ABB at all to me but I have a feeling ABB fans would dig them.
As a friend says, they're rock, they're country, they're Otis, they're Neil Young and All Memphis.

They remind me of the Radiators in the way that they have a small but extremely loyal following that will travel far and wide to see them and the band is very cool to and appreciative of the fans.

Steve Winwood just released a live album this past year and it's great. Highly recommended.

One of my favorite shows from last year produced one of the great live discs of the 21st Century.

John McLaughlin's Live At Ronnie Scott's.

Other than the tic a tac a tic a tac a stuff which I didn't really get the album is stellar and it's a mild tic a tac a.

I love them. One of my favorite bands of the last 15 years. Ben is a great songwriter.

My only complaint is how little space the lead guitarist is given. I don't expect 7 minute ABB solos but Brian Venable is a good guitar player and is criminally under used IMO.

On their list I agree with REM Live at the Olympia. 39 songs and spans their entire career and is excellent. I have a few live Pearl Jam CDs since they released individual shows but I do not have the one they list.

Possibly, my most played live album is the Jayhawks - Live at the Belly Up from 2015. It's download only and tremendous. It shows why the Gary Louris lead version of this band (sans Mark Olson) is actually a better band. Here is the HD FLAC version:

https://us.7digital.com/artist/the-jayhawks/release/live-at-the-belly-up

I also agree with the pick above about Alison Kraus & Union Station Live. It's the one Alison Kraus CD to own if you only had one. Band is so good.

In the Allman family.....Roadsongs by Derek Trucks Band is indeed great. Love ABB Fox Box. The Live from the Fox Oakland is the better of the two TTB live albums to me. Gregg Live from Macon is another solid live album that we play alot. Warren's Live from Bonaroo solo acoustic got a lot of play when it came out.

Maybe it was the Black Crowes "Freak And Roll... Into the Fog (way too many words for a live album) Live At The Fillmore" that was being referenced.

Am not familiar with alot of bands on that list. Didn't know Shudder to Think every got back together either.

Seems I have downloaded more audience live recordings I like as much or more than any official releases I've bought. Do Instant Lives count?

Here is what I listen to with some frequency:

ABB - One Way Out
Eric Clapton & Steve Winwood - Live From MSG
Gregg Allman - Back to Macon
Govt Mule - Deepest End
Levon Helm - Ramble at the Ryman
Sean Chambers - Long Island Blues Warehouse
Tab Benoit - Night Train to Nashville
Tedeschi Trucks - Everybody Talkin
Tinsley Ellis - Highway Man
Widespread Panic - Live From the Classic City I & II
