What about The Stones?  They were head and shoulders above The Beatles live, 
as were The Who in 1965.  Kinks maybe better also.  Beatles were awesome and 
their shows were huge events, but it wasn't the great performances that made 
the concerts big, but rather the fact that they were THE BEATLES!  Yes, the 
music itself was amazing but their live act itself, with some exceptions in the 
later 60s (Lennon playing piano with his elbows), were not that great.
