I did too. Made me sorta regret that I didn't get tickets, but pretty much any band that charges over $200 per ticket automatically pisses me off and makes me not want to go.

Never take your eye off of the Crazy Train....1/2 the reason I post on this site is to see if the Train wrecks or not that day.

oh and Madonna in my book can't do anything wrong. After I see The Police in November, she and Prince will be the last two artists I want to see perform live before I die.

If you would have agreed to be my sugar daddy, I would have gone with you last night. I don't feel nearly the moral outrage if someone else buys my ticket.

There were less than 5 memorable performances.
The Police were one. Madonna another.

Those disappointed are just douches.

This was so far underneath Live 8, it's regretable to say.

Roger Waters, he was pretty cool, among the highlights. Then compare it to the Live 8 performance with Gilmour..............

It just wasn't near as good.

Prince is one of the very few performers I've not seen who I'd still like to see. The Who, despite not quite being the Who anymore, are on that list as well. The Police were, now they're crossed off.

I can completely understand that. I agree that Roger interacts to a much greater extent with the audience. At one point in the Gilmour show I saw, just prior to an acoustic guitar part, David actually shushed the crowd. When he plays, he tends to get lost in it I think, he closes his eyes, or gets that faraway look that great blues guitarists tend to get. He may not even be aware that there's an audience there.

I probably came off sounding like I think Roger is satan or something, and that's certainly not the case. I obviously love them as a complete band - that's the ideal state of things. But solo, I just prefer David. Unfortunately, Roger's voice just rubs me the wrong way the way he currently sings many songs to the extent that I find them hard to enjoy. That doesn't diminish his previous work to me at all, though.
Definitely. Could you imagine one last Floyd tour? Gilmour's musicianship and Waters' love of the audience all rolled into one...would be out of this world.

I can see how you wouldn't like the tour vocal-wise. I'd be lying if I said I sometimes didn't wish I was hearing Gilmour/Wright instead of Carin/Kilminster on something like Breathe, those two times I saw Roger. But again, a live show means different things for different people. For me, the vocals are not a huge issue at all, it's more about enjoying the show and seeing a legend on his (probably) last tour ever.

If you lived within driving distance, you'd have been there.

This video is even cooler, because you see the pig, Roger smiling at the pig, me screaming like a lunatic, and shouting ROGERRRRRR:
Haha! That was great...nice scream! He definitely seemed into the performance, feeding off the lunatics in the crowd

I'm sure they'll also archive much of this on the main website, so it should be easy to navigate through what you want to see...on top of this, there's bound to be copious amounts on youtube.

U2 should have played...I'll bet they were worried about getting their messages mixed up in the public eye. They probably had high-end meetings about it.
