Roger Waters

Recommended Posts

Anybody seen him and his band on their current tour? I saw the concert tonight and it was, without doubt, the best one I've been to in at least five years. It was almost religious in it's intensity, a deafening ovation at halftime and at the end. :D

 

The set list:

1. In the Flesh

2. Mother

3. Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun

4. Shine On You Crazy Diamond

5. Have a Cigar

6. Wish You Were Here

7. Southampton Dock

8. The Fletcher Memorial Home

9. Perfect Sense, Parts 1 and 2

10. Leaving Beirut

11. Sheep (absolutely f'n brilliantly done)

 

15 minute intermission, then Dark Side Of The Moon in it's entirety

 

Encore

 

1. The Happiest Days of Our Lives

2. Another Brick in the Wall

3. Vera

4. Bring the Boys Back Home

5. Comfortably Numb

 

Very, very political too, Waters didn't pull any punches at all. :D

Won't have a chance to see him here in Brew town, but I did just watch Pink Floyd: Live in Pompei and it was f*cking awesome

I got to see him last September and again a month ago here in Philly. The two best shows I have ever seen by far.

little tidbit,

Roger brought both The Wall and The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking to the band and said which one do you wanna do...

I quit listening to him when he became a yellow bellied scum traitor.

The concert was definitely uberpolitical. If there were any Republicans / right wing Christians in the audience, they will have been wincing or heading for the exit. Judging by the noise and applause that greeted Leaving Beirut, there weren't many Bushistas there.

 

The pink flying pig was covered in graffiti calling forthe impeachment of Bush, criticizing all religions, etc, etc, too.

That is pretty much the set list he played when I saw him back in 2000 cept Comfortably Numb wasn't part of the encore.

Ursa, a friend of mine was at the X as well.

 

He had 2nd row center. Said it was the best show he'd ever seen.

Did he actually sing ok? When I saw PF's appearance on the Live 8 show last year, he sounded like he could barely hold a note without warbling and I thought he sounded pretty bad. Dude can still play though!! (hey didn't there used to be a thumbs-up smiley?)
