I saw David Gilmour last night

for anyone who is interested. I bought the album and thought it to be a bit too mellow. However, after hearing it performed in person, I must say it was great. That man puts on a great show. It was a small crowd at Massey Hall in Toronto and the sound was absolutely fabulous. Richard Wright performed with him, which was a bonus. If you have the chance to check him out you should definately go for it!!!

You won't be disappointed! It was my first time seeing him and, in my opinion, he performed better than the meltdown dvd I have. Good times!

By the way, ulove2, I heard Dave and Rick performed Echoes in Toronto? Is this true? I haven't been keeping up with his setlists because...I don't really care. But it's cool if they played Echoes.

The second half of the show is Floyd stuff, I am not sure what you mean about how light the show is.

This was the setlist from Toronto 2:

First Half: Castellorizon; On An Island; The Blue; Red Sky At Night; This Heaven; Then I Close My Eyes; Take a Breath; Smile; A Pocketful of Stones; Where We Start

Second Half: Shine On You Crazy Diamond; Wearing The Inside Out; Coming Back To Life; Dominoes; Breathe/Time/Breathe Reprise; High Hopes; Echoes

Encore: Wish You Were Here; Comfortably Numb

Amazing concert! Dick Parry does this incredible move during SOYCD, playing a bari sax, with a tenor slung over his back. Then, in about two beats, he lets go of the bari, does this flip with his body, and has the tenor in his hands and is playing it The entire show was phenomenal!

The *only* tiny little thing that was disappointing to me was that Polly Sampson didn't come out and sing backup vocals on Smile, but in the grand scheme of things, it wasn't that big of a deal.

The entire second half of all shows is completely Floyd - that ran from about 9:20 till 11 pm.

The light show, while not behemoth, and certainly not up to Floyd standards, was still really cool. Subdued on some songs, completely blinding to the extent that I thought the images would be burned into my retinas for weeks after during others. And you've gotta remember, he's playing small venues. Massey Hall in Toronto holds approx. 2,500, so the lighting was suitable for the size of the venue.

Boy do I feel like an ass. Sorry Eliv8, I don't how I could miss read something so obvious (better get my eyes checked). Anywho, what VintagePunk said. Now I must hide my head in shame.
