CONCERT REVIEW and PICTURES by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Harry

Stating the obvious, this show was phenomenal!!! I am a veteran of many shows, Floydian and otherwise, and I am at a complete loss for words that will even come close to doing this performance justice...

CONCERT REVIEW, VIDEO and PICTURES by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Simon Wimpenny

We sat next to a couple of guys who had received complimentary tickets from Roger. They worked in a restaurant one was a waiter and the other a bar tender. A couple of nights before Roger had been in the restaurant and was so impressed with their service he offered them two comp tickets to the show! Today was also Veterans Day and there was a whole row of Vets tonight slightly off to the right side off the floor.

Roger has again been working on the visuals and has the last couple of shows added even more animation and changed the projections about a bit! During the lyrics "a snapshot in the family album" he's added a picture on Mr screen of Roger with his mom and dad, its the old black and white pictures that's been seen online for years but they have coloured it red to match in with all the other graphics for Another Brick! There's also a nice subtle change to the camera animation that's on Mr Screen during Mother, the camera now gets covered by the red animated "blood" that covers the whole of the wall. It's a little thing but works really well.

Last night there was also a change in the animation at the end of Goodbye Blue Sky, normally all the symbols (shell logo, $ sign, Mercedes logo, cross, Star of David) that are shown coming out of the B52 planes usually fade in and out and fall all over the wall around, however last night they all "bounced" down from the top of the screen and bounced around at the bottom of the wall. Similar to before but different, you have to see it to know what I mean. Roger also spoke of the veterans at the beginning of Mother and thanked them all.

The crowd tonight were better than the second show but still not as good as the first one, they all remained standing up but the energy just wasn't as good as the first night. There was a lot of "action" around our seats as well, a lot of people coming in and out and changing seats and moving around which kinda took the edge of a couple of things for me.

After intermission, we headed back out to the floor and watched the second half from the right side, about 5 rows from the stage. We had a great vantage point to watch Jim try grab the armband from here too!

I'm still not liking the little "oohh ohhh oohhs" that Robbie is doing in The Show Must Go On, it just doesn't sound right to me! I am however really liking the new graphics for Comfy Numb, as we couldn't see Dave on top of the wall due to being so close I watched Roger and the new graphics all the time. They just seam to fit perfectly. Made me laugh when Roger changed up his normal line and said "Are there any paranoids in the city of brotherly love tonight?" I didn't quite catch what he said at first 'til Kami heard it also and heard what he actually said.

After Waiting For The Worms we watched the scramble on the floor around Jim as Roger threw his armband!! It was hysterical, there were people everywhere scrambling to get it! Jim later on told us that it seemed like everyone knew tonight that it was going to happen and even though everyone around them were different people from the nights before they still knew where and when Roger was going to throw it.

Security started moving people early on before the wall fall, the whole of the right section was full of people tonight, even though the yellow caution tape was still there and had blocked off about 4 seats from the stage all the way down the section they started to tell people to move out of there seats in the first 5 rows. Kami and I were right on the border where the wall would come down and moved back a row and in towards the arena a couple of seats. Had we not done we would have been pleasantly hit on the head by falling bricks!! Oh if only!!

Roger thanked the crowd again and said how much of a music town Philly has always been and how much the crowd have always been appreciative, he then introduced the band as normal and they all left the stage once again for a final time in Philly.
