COMMENTS

Roger's tour of The Wall arrives in New Jersey, and a venue Roger is fairly familiar with. Formally known as the Brendan Byrne Arena, and the Continental Airlines Arena, it's a place that he's played in on previous tours.

The newspaper advert shown to the right (click thumbnail) was supplied by BD's own Elliot Tayman.

The RogerWaters.com presales began starting Wednesday, May 5th. Starting May 3rd, American Express Cardmembers could get advance tickets, with seating available to Gold Card, Platinum Card and Centurion members. US fans could also get early access to tickets via iTunes beginning Thursday, May 6th, by purchasing the 1982 film The Wall from iTunes by April 26th. For both the American Express and iTunes presales, please note that the presale offers were available in select markets and ticket quantities were limited.

General sale tickets went on sale on Monday, May 10, via Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com. The public sale also saw a limited number of VIP packages made available for each show on the tour. Use of our links to Ticketmaster gives much needed assistance with site hosting costs without any additional cost to yourself - and we appreciate it!

WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD!

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

Night twenty-nine of the tour, and following a couple of days rest, the resumption of the fun with the first of two shows at the Izod (where the final dress rehearsal show took place on September 12th!). Unsurprisingly, David Gilmour WASN'T at this show either... Initial comments are that this was another great concert - the show is getting tighter, with more little tweaks happening all the time to improve the event.

If you went to this show, please let us know what you thought of the event, and if anything interesting or different happened if you've been to previous shows and can compare.

CONCERT REVIEW by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Dominic Cordisco

Just a short note to say that I was at the Nov 3d show at Izod, and Roger did do something that he hadn't done at the Boston show: he had an MP-40 Schmeisser which he used at the end of In The Flesh to shoot, repeatedly, at the audience, complete with sound effects. Also, when the wall came down, some of the bricks ended up in the front rows of the audience -- at least it looked that way to me from where I was sitting.

I gotta say the Bob Dylan onslaught before the show started was not terribly uplifting. There was also less of the audio intro -- in Boston, there were extended excerpts from George Carlin and Monty Python bits. None of that played last night.

Overall, the sound was much tighter. I was I could say the same for the projectors, as the bass in the hall was making the derrick shake, so the projections on the wall kept shaking, which was kinda uncool. I wish someone had tightened those bolts down a little harder!

These are minor quibbles, tho. All in all, a stupendous show, as well as my last opportunity to see it -- unless Roger circles back in 2011. After all, the place was sold out. Here's hoping...!

CONCERT REVIEW and PICTURES by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Lori Foote Latteri

I saw The Wall 30 years ago in New York. All I can say is thanks to the technology we have today so that Roger could bring it back to us in such an extreme way. Being a diehard David Gilmour fan I did not think Dave Kilminster could step into his shoes, but he did and ran with them. His solo's were amazing. Mr Waters picked all the right people to tour with him. They were very tight, and it's only the beginning of the tour. I could just imagine what the last leg will be like. I am still trying to find the right adjective to describe the show...
