UK and US Bands slug it out for bragging rights in new poll.
What do disco era super band The Village People and UK rock legends Led Zeppelin have in common? Anyone? Well both groups made the top ten run off in Madison Square Garden’s Greatest Concert of the 1970’s – 2000s poll.
The ‘world’s greatest arena posted 100 of their best concert performances on their homepage and asked visitors to vote for the final ten bands now in the running for the top spot. The illustrious selection of 10 bands might hold a few surprises for some of you.
