For me (rather surprisingly), this:

Yeah, the verses are a bit choppy and he's shortening notes here and there, but on the choruses his tone is strong and he manages to hit the high notes without having to seemingly push the veins out of his head.

Which song/performance do you think has been Jon's latest real vocal highlight?

Or:

I don't consider the BOR performance posted above to be good as it is mostly a shoutfest.

If you've got to disect a song into pieces in order to find a vocal highlight it's not really a highlight now, is it? It's a bit of a stretch to say his tone is great in the chorus when he's still singing tanaijujujujt instead of tonight. What's next, pointing out syllables and say he's pronouncing the second half of a word really well? Sure, this sounds better than most of the shit from last year but it's still really awful and at times he sounds like a pub singer doing this for karaoke night.

He's "lucky" he's singing this in arena's with loads of echo and crowd noises. Would he do this song in theaters he'd be a lot more exposed and a lot more people would realize his voice is shot to bits. I really don't understand why people on this board think this stuff is acceptable, it's as if they've got no proper benchmark and/or no musical ear at all.

Salaam Aleikum,
Sebastiaan

Jon just can't sing anymore.

It's been many years since he had a good vocal performance live.

Are you thinking about this, maybe?

If some of you think like Seb does and put it as Jon having completely lost his singing ability right after Lisbon 2011, it's alright - I'm not trying to make anyone change one's opinion. But still, in my opinion, Jon delivered his last (quoting Walleris) "vintage vocal performance" in Hyde Park 2013:

https://youtu.be/VNtLjw1DKsM (These Days)

Say what you want, but he's actually singing here instead of shouting - and even hitting the notes.

And Dave, that Prayer performance from Vegas '18 is absolutely horrible compared to any pre-mid-'13 version of the song, so it's not a good one in any way for me.

Well, if you consider his voice started to sound a bit nasal by 2000/2001... so, I guess this was the last tour he sounded GOOD, like.... REALLY GOOD.

Doesn't mean that his voice was shit in the subsequent tours (well, apart from nowadays and 2013), but yeah... since you used caps in GOOD, then, for me, Crush tour was the last.

Lost Highway-era I guess. Although it depends on what "good" is. Given how great JBJ used to be, "well that's a good performance" can mean many things.
