But fortunately for most, the lapd made it known what their plans were. So, being Pink Floyd fans, we all took appropriate measures before entering.
Wow, yeah, that scene where the cops are slamming the kids up against cars outside a stadium is based directly on all of that nonsense. I just had a listen to the commentary between Roger Waters and Gerald Scarfe on my DVD, and here's what Roger had to say about it:


WATERS: "The scenes of the police hark back to some gigs that we did in Los Angeles. Um, I think the police chief was called Davis, in those days, that name is lodged somewhere in my memory. And he decided to attack rock 'n' roll in general. And Pink Floyd in particular, because we dared to put on a rock 'n' roll show downtown in LA in a building called the Sports Arena, which I think hadn't been used for rock 'n' roll before. And so they decided to attack us. And that was I think on the Animals tour in 1977. And they searched every single kid with a ticket that went into a show, and made tons and tons of arrests. Which led, I'm happy to say, the aftermath of that was a class action taken out against the Los Angeles Police Department on behalf of everybody who went to the shows."


So you and your friends witnessed a piece of music history right there! That's awesome. Not for what the LAPD did, of course, but for the fact that you got to see something that inspired a scene in the movie.

FANTASTIC four cam video of Dark Side performed in its entirity. It looks pro-shot, but I think most of it is taken from the video screens. This is from Columbia 2007. Incredible! On the negative side, the audio feed seems to be from the in-ear monitors, so you can hear the click track and Roger's count-ins. Even so, this is by far the BEST video production put together of the show.

If you want to download it directly instead of watching online, click here: http://divx-348.vo.llnwd.net/stage6vid/1316087.divx

This just makes me want to see the last show of the tour even more.

I took some 20 second clips with my camera phone (that's the limit). I'm emailing them to myself and will see if I can open/upload them later

The clips stop at 2 seconds. Hope you and HardyHarHar had a great time. The two of you have to tell us about the show.

Another great performance. Because it's so close to the summer solstice, the sun has barely set by 7:45, the time last years shows started around. At 8:00 I'm actually into the songs being played on the radio that begins the show. I want them to go on so it will be darker when they hit the stage. Around 8:10 they roll out, but for me things don't really kick in til Set the Controls. Shine On kicks as does WYWH, Perfect Sense, Fletcher Home. Sheep is phenomenal. Roger says they're taking a "15 minute break, and I mean 15 minutes". Then we'll be back to perform Dark Side of the Moon. Huge cheer for that brings a big grin to Roger, as he turns to walk off. People charge for the smoking area. I don't know why.

I've always liked the long intro to DSOTM, the beat that gets louder and louder leading into Breathe. But none of that tonight as the abbreviated screams leading into it throw me off kilter a bit and Breathe sorta slips by. On the Run though is awesome, and there is no let up from there on. Prism effects are tremendous tonight and the sound for whatever reason seems louder.

Because of the config of the bowl, the people at the front are never closer than say 20 feet from Roger and the band. GibsonGirl, you lucked out at your venue getting so close. It probably isn't like that at every venue.

As great as the concert was, I couldn't get the nagging thought out of my head why the Floyd aren't doing this themselves. I'm sure Mason & Wright would jump right on board if the two prima donnas could just get over themselves. Just something I was thinking about last night. Oh, the possibilities.........

One more tomorrow night

I'm glad you liked the show. Oh and HardyHarHar, need you really ask why everyone rushed to the smoking area? It's DSOTM afterall.

The Hollywood Bowl's configuration looks like a terrible place to watch a show. I'm surprised so many artists go there.

It's actually not a bad place, just real big. And the seats the normal person can afford are kinda far back. But you can bring in food and drink, and there are great hidden picnic areas inside where you can party a couple hours before the shows begin. Sometimes the stage is extended out into the seats, that helps quite a bit. And for surround sound like last night, it can't be beat. But generally, yes, the Forum or Staples, Greek Theater, etc.. give you a better opportunity at getting close to the band.

Screwtape - I checked at least one of the clips just now, and it still says 20 seconds. That's as long as my stinkin' cameraphone will record. Maybe you can retry.

The Hollywood Bowl, I believe, can hold about 20,000 people.

Oh, and Screwtape, hardyharhar was being his witty sarcastic self with the smoking comment
