Maybe not what op had in mind (first two have no vid and the other two are street performances), but they all fit the word 'astonishing' in their own way:

I think this John Martyn clip is astonishing, he even says as much at the end. Dobro solo is off the hook!

Then for sheer raw rock power, this 1992 Melvins set would be hard to beat.

Love this. Fondly remember the first time i heard their music, probably linked on here actually several years ago. Huge fan of Sharrock's playing

I love Yussef Dayes' precise but animated intensity on the drums in this, and Mansur Brown's guitar, particularly when it takes flight around 4:40. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwVtIPeYIeQ

More Yussef Dayes brilliance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_IZI7YQLsU expanding on a Stanley Clarke motif.

That’s great! What a killer drummer.

This Pat Metheny Group performance is phenomenal:

Yeah, I love it. Amazingly close to the sound of the studio version, but with extra fire in it. I always enjoy his collaborations with Lyle Mays.

Speaking of Pat Metheny, I've been bingeing on live Joni Mitchell performances of late, and this version of 'Amelia' from the '79 Shadows & Light Tour, with Metheny accompanying, is one of the most incredible live performances I've seen on YouTube. Joni's playing and singing is so precise yet so soulful, and it's one of her most beautiful songs of course. And Metheny's closing solo is equally amazing. Not sure if Joni walks off to give him the spotlight or, more likely, to sneak a fag.
