Mixing and mastering track for live performance with a pop-rock band

Hello! Does anyone have experience with mixing and mastering track which is going to be played live with a pop-rock band ? Should it be raw as possible? Is loudness important and is there any standard numbers in metering?

As long as it's well balanced and controlled it will work fine. Loudness is not an issue. The FOH engineer will curse you if there's unruly subs. And go easy on the high mids; they can get a bit strident on many PAs.
