BEST OF MUSIC 2013: LIVE PERFORMANCES

by Albert Rodriguez and Jessica Price - SGN A&E Writers

There are good concerts and there are great concerts, but there are only a handful of concerts that really blew us away. Here are the best shows we saw all year, in ranking order.

ALBERT'S PICKS

1. Paul McCartney @ Safeco Field,
July 19

Sir Paul serenaded a capacity crowd on a warm summer evening with a 39-song set list that included lots of Beatles classics, plus a jam session with Nirvana members.

2. Heart @ Key Arena (Bumbershoot),
August 31

The Wilson sisters were on fire at Key Arena, playing fierce renditions of 'Barracuda,' 'Crazy on You' and Led Zeppelin's 'Kashmir.'

3. Janelle Monae @ The Showbox SoDo,
October 30

Monae has so much energy and she put it to maximum use at a pre-Halloween show that included cuts from her new album, The Electric Lady, and covers of the Jackson Five and Prince songs.

4. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis @ Key Arena,
December 11

The second of three consecutive sold-out concerts at Key Arena, this show had everything from colorful confetti to smoke bombs to pyrotechnics. It was a superb hometown performance.

5. Suzanne Vega @ Benaroya Recital Hall,
February 5

Performing in an intimate 500-seat venue, Vega delighted fans with 'Marlene on the Wall,' 'Small Blue Thing,' 'Luka' and previously-unrecorded tracks.

JESSICA'S PICKS

1. Prince @ The Showbox at the Market,
April 18

2. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis @ Key Arena,

3. Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds @ Paramount Theatre,
