Top Ten Live Shows of 2010

This year we had the pleasure of seeing some of our most favourite albums performed live across Canada and the US at some of our favourite venues.

There’s nothing quite as hard hitting as great performance and from Toronto to Montreal to New York to Toronto and back again, our favourite artists have given us great memories, enhancing our love for each often in less than a few hours. Some left us with tears in our eyes and every live set below left us wanting more. Below are Sidewalk Hustle’s picks from the many shows we attended in 2010 alongside our most favourite photos.
