Please Roger, come to Australia. Agree it was brilliant last time. The best sounding show I've ever heard. Would love U2 to return to arenas and have a sound set up like that. Perfect clarity and not boomy. Clearly Roger cares about such things.

I'm not even sure The Wall is in my top 5 favorite PF albums and I still had my mind blown.

If you're OK with the performance being note-for-note and not being able to really see the band/don't care if they exhude emotion, it's probably the best thing ever. The visuals are so fucking good and Roger sounds great.

The best reason to go:

There's no way to even describe how good "Run Like Hell" was. Never mind the fact that the rest of the show was almost as good. And The Wall is hands down my favorite Floyd album. Hell, it's one of my favorite albums period.

I've got a few pics, but I couldn't zoom in because my phone is broken, I'll upload some later.

When I was a kid, I always thought how much it sucked that I was never going to get to see The Wall live. The fact that this opportunity presented itself to me was definitely a high point in my life. Just so great.

It was definitely even more than I expected, to be hyperbolic. I had such a good time.

Not long ago I watched 2010 live version of "Comfortably numb" on Youtube. My feelings were so strong... I want to go on this concert despite that I wonder why Roger is "rotate" classic Pink Floyd album and don't want to record one more solo album.

And what do you think about Roger's solo works? As for me, I can't say I like them. For me it's too little melodies and much conception. Most of all I like "Amused to death" because it is most melodic and there are some beautiful songs (and on the first album I hardly could tell one from another, the second album is too pop for me and for Waters, I suppose), such as "It's a Miracle" and "Perfect sense".

We listened to The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking on the way to the show, which is the only solo Roger I've ever heard before. I really enjoyed it, but I have no idea how indicative it may be of Roger's solo career overall.

Note for note. Yeah, a problem with what is essentially a tribute band. Little chance for some stretching out, which the Floyd might have done. Me thinks, with Gilmore there, you would have said Comfortably Numb was the highlight. But Roger sounds great.

Not seeing the band. Strange, huh. But the way the wall is built is cool, half the time you don't even realize it's getting larger, cuz your suddenly lost in the music.

Glad you guys had a great time. Roger knows how to do a spectacle. I'm really looking forward to it now.
The Hammers?

"Comfortably Numb" was wonderful, no doubt, but emotionally at any rate, it, surprisingly, couldn't touch "Vera"/"Bring the Boys Back Home" and "Run Like Hell". It didn't help that Roger was making the most hilarious/adorable hand motions to the chorus of CN.

Not seeing the band made "Hey You" kind of awesome. Then it went on a little longer, and it started to feel awkward, but when Roger reappeared during "Nobody Home", I didn't really notice any more because the visuals truly took over at that point.

Three days later and I'm still not quite over it. It's going to be a while, methinks.

i fucking love Vera. it's in my top five or six from The Wall. i'd probably definitely go to this if he comes to Australia.

this must be quite surreal for you hardy, given you saw it in the 80s and all.

Gilmore performed Comfortably Numb from the top of the wall. Don't know what he was standing on, but it was something.

The Hammers?
Maybe it was just me, and maybe they aren't there anymore, but during Waiting for the Worms or The Trial, when the whole fascist paranoia comes to life and the goosestepping hammers are marching across the wall.... well, that made a lasting impression on me. :couldhavebeendrugs:

I think I remember this as the part Roger sings sitting in a chair halfway up the wall, watching a tv set. Great moment.

Ahh, a sign of a memorable show



Cobl04 -It's certainly bringing back memories.

And I can't imagine Roger not taking this monster all around the world before it's over. So start saving your money

I kndew what hammers you were talking about, they're in the film as well, I just didn't get what your face meant.

I'll spoiler the rest if you don't want to see read about the show.
 
the hammers are projected on the screen during...waiting for the worms I think. Very very cool. I took some decent pics of that. Keep meaning to link to my review and forgetting, but there's a link to the pics in the review that I wrote on the blog in my sig.

As for Comfortably Numb, the replacement guitarist performs from the top of the wall, but the guy singing is nowhere to be scene.

Nobody's home is exactly as you described it.


Can't wait for you to see it so I can hear from you about it, Hardy.

Cobbler, I have faith you'll get to see it. Geez I wish I could see it again already
