Saw him in Denver about a month ago. Awesome show! We need a Pink Floyd pin!!!

We need 2 LE's of Pink Floyd. I would buy both "The Wall" and "Dark Side of the Moon." They would be awesome in sound, toys and artistically. Unfortunately, I think licensing is very difficult here.

We are on the field just in front of you. We don't have our seats because we have to pick them up at 5:30. It's like a fan club VIP thing. We are between rows 4-10 in either D, E or F. I will PM you my cell if you want to find us.

You suck-diddly-uck! I saw him in 2007 when he did his Dark Side of the Moon tour. Easily one of the top three concerts I have been to. I would buy a NIB PFDSOTM pin in a heartbeat!

I bought front row center VIP tickets when they came out almost 8 months ago...Cost a pretty penny but I'm such a huge floyd fan I had to bite. Show is in July in my area and can't wait.

More Awesomeness!

Perhaps the most powerful 2 hours a human can ever experience in a show. Its truly a emotional roller coaster of tremendous highs and terrifying lows. I did a paper on the wall in a 2nd year Class of discovering the human mind. Its truly a amazing visual aid of psychosis and and manic depression based on stereotypes and modern society.


#26 3 years ago

What a fantastic concert!!! I'm not even sure concert accurately describes it. It was truly one of the most awesome things I've ever experienced. I'm so glad we decided to go at the last minute. Anyone who is even remotely a Pink Floyd fan needs to see this show.


#27 3 years ago

I saw him in Grand Rapids on Wednesday. Life changing.
Goosebumps just thinking about it.

But....have you tried it...ON WEED!?!?! lol . I can tell you this, back in the day a floyd concert required psychedelics, and what a trip it was seeing those shows that way! "I've got some bad news for you sunshine..." When the hospital gurney with a live person struggling on it flew over my head from the back of the stadium - that was a moment in time. There were 8 of us, all twisted in ways completely unappoved by the FDA, the Dallas Police, and our mothers.

Blaring floyd from the wall at 6.30 am this morning. Still the best band for a concert show. Let me ask y'all who went to see roger, did ya miss dave ? This is the only band I really cared about getting back together. Watching the live video from 1979? of the wall in san francisco...that's what got me started. Now I much prefer the stuff before the wall, before rog went to the "I am the band" mentality. Trivia - who is the singer on "have a cigar" ?

What about Roger's stuff after floyd? Amused to Death is one my favorite all time albums. I love the premise that we all just amused ourselves to death and the monkeys wonder what happened. If you could turn back history to ruin a band, all you would have to do is make sure Roger's dad lived to raise him. All motivation and song inspiration for him seems to stem from that, even his current stuff.

Then there is Dave...he was the band in the 80's and 90's. But even at those concerts which I loved, I KNEW his frikkin wife had written the lyrics to two songs, and he did not write learning to fly, all those little things and knowing rog would NOT be making a surprise appearance. The d-lysergic acid diethylamide worked out the kinks though.

Back in the 90s I was a floyd bootleg collector. I still have my stuff, although all on cassette tapes. Took about two years to get it all together, but it ends up being a chronicle of their live stuff in the late 60s. They used to perform their stuff live prior to putting it on an album, so the early dark side of the moon performances beofore the album came out are INCREDIBLE. You can tell there were some innovating bootleggers back then, some of the recordings are clearly from the sound board as opposed to hand held recordings. Roger telling audience members to go fuck themselves, getting pissed if someone gets too close to the stage, small venues, really interesting stuff.

Anyways...if you can't tell I am a HUGE floyd fan, I need to see roger!

Do THC laced ginger snaps count?

I did. The lead guitarist that Roger has touring with him was absolutely incredible, but there were definitely some key moments where I found myself longing for Dave's voice (i.e. the chorus in Comfortably Numb). Fortunately, The Wall doesn't suffer as much by not having Dave as some other Floyd albums would. Roger sings an overwhelming majority of the material on The Wall, and his voice still sounds just as good as it ever has.
