    Been busy , anyway, Tuesday night saw Roger do The Wall at the HP pavilion.

    The venue was very good as they closed off the 'back' third of the arena for the pops etc.

    Roger did his thing; the wall being a straight up political-concept album ( opera?) imho ( some could make the case Animals was too and of course the Final Cut,I don't disagree) it was tad dated in that roger still had Bush up there next to Stalin and Mao with Ipod ear-buds too, and visual messages speaking to “I-” this and “I-” that, it appears roger has a case with Apple....didn't know that, I think its funny but hey roger has always gone his own way.

    The show was start to finish top notch, due to probably imaginative filtering roger sounded very good. The musicians played it as faithfully as they could as to David Gilmour and Rick Wright.

    The visuals were stunning, they started the show with a pretty massive fireworks display to go along with the album sounds of ‘In the Flesh’, if you have heard the wall and the song that leads the album you’ll know the lead song is and the rhythms and sturm and drang involved.....

    I have some great video, they didn’t even bother to try to stop any pics etc and announced roger doesn’t mind pics just no flash because it might white out visual screens he was ruining all the time etc. If I could post the vids I would, oh well.

    We did a sing along for ‘Hey You’ which inho is a poignant song and went very well.

    Anyway, I will post some pics here, they built the wall as they went played behind it for 2 songs then collapsed it after the verdict was announced by the judge, they had huge mobile mannequins which are seen on the upper right of one of my shots etc....well done, plus they also had a half size stuka dive bomber on a a zipline fly the length of the arena high up and crash with flames etc....the pic is blurry but you’ll see it in the upper right barely it came from over my right shoulder surprising me....the whole show was well worth the coin...enjoy.

    the first shot the plane is on the upper right, yellow wings you can see the line it rode, the explosion I missed by a fraction but it was fantastic to go with the rest.

    the other pics are pretty much self explanatory.the second is pre-show shot of the wall before they started building it up during the show.

    =( !!!!!!!!!

    YOU ARE SO LUCKY.

    I was going to go with this girl, but we never got the ball rolling, and by the time we did the tix were like $600 on resale. Sooo disappointed. Then the same thing happened with Rammstein.

    Oh well... Awesome that you made it, though!
