Best UnPlugged Performances Rock/Metal
« on: January 02, 2018, 09:30:38 PM »
We don't have a category on here for the best of the Unplugged performances, be it the MTV Unplugged series or other live unplugged tours and performances. There have been some great memorable ones. I'll post some of my favorites. A few of these I'm sure have also been posted in the band's threads on here who performed them.

What are your favorite unplugged sessions/tours?

Obviously the Queensryche MTV unplugged session from 1992 is a favorite
