Seeing Roger Waters perform Dark Side live at Coachella a couple of years ago was pretty awesome.  Though it was kind of bizarre they included all the incidental sounds and samples in the show, not just the songs. I know it’s the classic example of a concept album and therefore people really consider it all as one entity, including the sounds, but that was nearly taking a live show too far, more like it was a recreation, not a performance.
