Saw Roger Waters on Sat. night here in Virginia.

What a great show

playing the whole "Dark Side of the Moon" was awesome.

It's interesting to see how many of the PF/RW themes from 15-30+ years ago
are repeating themselves today, making the songs still very relavent.

Wonder if they're all sold out at the H. Bowl.

Scanned this in from the programme. Click for full version.



On a side note, I love how Harry Waters has his dad's characteristic glare in that photo.

No one comes to Alberta, eh? Looking at the past 5 years in Calgary alone, the following bands are just a cross-section of who has performed here: The Rolling Stones, The Who (in October), Franz Ferdinand, Death Cab For Cutie, U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, TOOL (twice), Broken Social Scene (three or more times), The Arcade Fire, Wolf Parade, A Silver Mt. Zion, Stars (four or more times), The Stills, Peaches, Wilco, Apostle of Hustle, Feist (who is from Calgary), K-OS, The Music (twice), Coldplay, Billy Idol, The Constantines, The Weakerthans, Weezer, Elvis Costello, Jason Collett (and dozens of other indie artists), etc. The only notable contemporary acts that I can think of that have not been to Alberta is Radiohead (since 97-98), The White Stripes, Bloc Party, and Sigur Ros. We probably missed out on Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, and Bach, but we're doing ok.

We have more than Nickelback to claim and to watch, if one is motivated enough to look.

Yeah, Alberta's doing okay. Be thankful that you're not living in St. John's Newfoundland, love_u2_adam. The only big names I can remember who've graced the Rock recently include Pearl Jam and Feist. We get plenty of the Nickleback, Swollen Members, Black Eyed Peas, Rex Goudie, Hilary Duff, Great Big Sea kind of crap, but very few bands and performers that are actually good. So consider yourself lucky to be living where you do.

Cool. I wanted to get the program during the intermission, but the line was too long. And after the show I left quickly to avoid the rush, but still had to wait an hour to get out of the parking lot . I hope the merchandise shows up online eventually.

Yeah - Harry is quite an intriguing character. I was reading Dave K.'s tour diary, which I'm sure you've seen. There were a couple of photos of Harry there away from the gigs - playing chess at Roger's beachfront home in Greece and at an Iceland museum. This tour has gone to some really interesting cities and venues.

I enjoyed the first show so much, I decided to catch another one in Chicago. Again, an awesome show.

And a couple of videos I filmed - not the best quality though:

need help here:

I saw him in Indy on saturday (great show - HORRIBLE venue). The pig was launched into the sky. Do they have GPS tracking on the pig and get it back - or is some poor Indiana farmer having a heart attack right now because there is a huge pig with "Impeach Bush" on its ass sitting in his corn field?
