Roger Waters performs ‘The Wall’ in its entirety

Update: A clip from last night already on youtube ~ Comfortably Numb

11/28/10: Saw the show last night in Phoenix. THE BEST CONCERT EVER BAR NONE. If you get any chance to see this amazing, knock you on your ass show, take it. Awesome doesn’t do it justice. Roger sounds fxckin amazing, guitar solos fxckin amazing.

The visuals, Jeebus they made the show I saw with Gilmour in ’88 fade away, but that’s to be expected. The teacher, mom, ‘Georgie O Keefe on acid lover’ were ginormous puppets  and the Pig sailed over the crowd red eyes blazing but it’s MIC message wasn’t alone – ‘Trust Us’ was answered with a ‘No Fuckin Way’ across its giant ass.

Roger updated the film with cuts of current conflict. Royal Dutch Shell’s emblem was prominent, I wish Goldman Sachs had one, you know it would have been there!!. Obama made the film with the other corruptocrat leaders, the applause was very definitely in recognition of his full of shxtness, I was hooting wildly and so were a lot of awakened Obama fans let me tell ya. Then the clips moved to our brave soldiers returning from serving to their kids. I have seen this film on AceHQ, children surprised in class by their Dads home from the war and sure enough I cried. I have never seen such pure naked emotion as on those kids faces. Then I cried knowing Roger’s Dad and so many others never make it home.

Roger LIVED the performance for us, just incredible. The sound was everything every Floyd fan ever wished they could produce at home, surrounding themselves in the music. I could feel the buzz of the electricity the crowd was generating back at the stage during You Better Run and I wasn’t even trippin.

Second Side of the album is my fave, and by the time the Wall was built across the stage separating the band from the audience I knew I would have followed the show to the nearest state for the next night if I still lived back East. I want to see it again. And again! BEST SHOW EVER. Thank you Roger!!!

Here is a youtube from the Boston show 10/1/10, In the Flesh, Run Like Hell:

I’m so excited!!! It’s finally here!

Excellent review from the NYPost on the beginning of the tour:

When Roger Waters finished building “The Wall” in its entirety, at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, it was just another brick on what was the best arena concert I’ve ever been to. Period.

The show, a theatrical experience that brought the great 1979 Pink Floyd album to life, was simply fantastic….

…Musically, Waters kept his 12-piece band true to the original charts — it seemed that no notes were added or changed. Even the searing guitar solo by David Gilmour delivered 30 years ago on “Comfortably Numb” was re-created with note-for-note precision — even though Gilmour and Waters parted ways 25 years ago.

The concert’s structure was also faithful to the double album: Sides one and two were played before intermission, sides three and four after. After the final song, “Outside the Wall,” Waters and his band just bowed and left the stage….

Atlanta Journal loved it:

Visually jaw-dropping and acoustically flawless, “The Wall” anniversary tour might be the most technically phenomenal show ever staged in an arena.

The dive bomber careening over the audience and crashing in a fiery explosion. Those menacing, mammoth blow-up marionettes associated with iconic characters from the album (the schoolmaster, a wife, the pig). And of course, the wall, slowly being constructed, brick by cardboard brick, as the show progressed and used as a 240-foot-wide projection screen….

…Roger Waters claims this will be his last-ever tour. And, really, it should be, because he could never top bringing “The Wall” to life.

He’s also managed to contemporize the semi-autobiographical Pink Floyd album, which, even after three decades, works as a complex study of politics and psychology….

Times Picayune reviews the Houston performance:

…Because the audience knew the set list in advance – the entirety of “The Wall,” in order – it was up to the production to supply suspense, drama and surprise. The opening pyrotechnic salvo concluded with a World War II-era British fighter plane screaming in from the upper balcony to a fiery “crash.” All evening, a stellar audio mix enhanced surround-sound effects, such as the helicopter that seemed to clatter overhead in “The Happiest Days of Our Lives.”….

CAN. NOT. WAIT!
