CONCERT REVIEW - by BD contributer, Lori

This was my fifth Roger Waters solo show (I started with “Pros and Cons”) and this was by far the best I have ever seen. I thought Radio Kaos was something to remember until last night. The band was just fantastic. When I closed my eyes you would almost think the David Gilmour was there. Snowy White has Gilmour’s licks down to a tee.

We did not hear the boos that I read about from previous shows. But you could feel the tension in the audience. I felt that “Fletcher” was done with power behind it. I noticed that some people did leave their seats for this part of the show. I guess that is better then the boos. Having 10th row seats you could see Roger thanking the ones that did not. I noticed there was a few times He would mouth the words thank you.

My husband summed it like this. “You really can not tell people how great he was because he was better then you could describe.”

Thank you Mr. Waters for another breath taking show.

Everything was the same as the other shows except after a successful flight the pig came crashing down and was crowd surfing. Then, guys in black turtleneck shirts hauled him back in as people tried to rip it to shreds:

CONCERT REVIEW - by BD contributer, William Simpson

Visited Roger's show, but was a bit disappointed by the hot, sweaty atmosphere, causing sweating musicians, Roger barely croaking his "Thank You". Muddled sound, sounded like a high school band. I left before the end of DSOTM.

However, I had great ride down from Boston on a new Goldwing.
