WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD!

Do not read on if you don't want surprises to be spoilt, regarding what the band played!

The second show in the North American leg of Roger's 2008 Dark Side Of The Moon mini tour, and this time an indoor arena. Reports have now arrived, and attest to another cracking show that all seemed to enjoy hugely!

One day's break for the band (and crew) before they arrive in Dallas for the first of the Texan shows.

CONCERT REVIEW - by BD contributor, Drew

Wow,Wow, Wow!! is all we can say... the band was tight, sound was awesome (the best the Pepsi Center has sounded) and the crowd was into it. Excellent selection of songs. After reading previous reviews of Coachella and then reviews from the 2007 tour, this had to be right up there with the best of shows...

Wish you were there! Hats off to Roger and his band! If we had time and money we'd be off to Dallas and Houston to see it again.

CONCERT REVIEW - by BD contributor, Tom Lippi

Last night was the first time I've seen Roger Waters perform in thirty-six years!!! I attended the concert at Denver University in 1972. The only song they (Pink Floyd) played was "Money" because the album hadn't come out yet. My friend "Pinky" climbed up into the speaker and was "tripping". Best song of the night was "echoes".

Last night I saw Roger Waters' show and it was fantastic! I felt like a space ship captain. I was sitting in the front row of the balcony in the center, facing the stage. WOW!

CONCERT REVIEW - by BD contributor, Michael Pittman

The concert at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado on 4/30/08 was awesome!!! I had floor seats in the DDD section. I've never been to a concert ever where the entire crowd of around 20,000 gave an almost entire concert-long standing ovation. Incredible.

I'll never forget the version of "Sheep" from the Animals album. Incredible flames from the stage and the huge radio controlled inflatable pig that was keeping an eye on the crowd just 10 to 15 feet above me, starting from behind the stage to cruise all over the indoor arena.

The band then went to about a 25 minute break, then the second half, Dark Side of the Moon, from start to finish nonstop. Total energy. During "Brain Damage" the background video showed countless brains floating towards the crowd with lightning bolts shooting towards the ground. There was also a 3-dimensional "prism" erected above the stage that was rotating with the white light entering and rainbow colors exiting the other side during "Brain Damage". The entire concert was about 3 hours of an absolutely unforgettable experience.

CONCERT REVIEW - by BD contributor, Kim Davidson

Absolutely amazing!!!  Something that I didn't see mentioned in the other reports: tons of Obama confetti poured down on us (my group was sitting in the first row of section FFF on the floor) and Roger was clean shaven. And, WOW! Girls, you gotta check out Harry's hair - it's soooo long and beautiful!

I've seen Roger perform several times, but this was the first time that no one was yelling at me to sit down, it was great to see everyone as happy as myself.
