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 twentytwo of the tour, and second and concluding night of The Wall Live at the Bell Centre in Montreal. The show went much more like clockwork than the preceding night, with none of the technical errors that affected a couple of the songs then. Roger seems to be enjoying the shows, and the audience reaction, hugely - plain to see from his demeanour.
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, Simon Wimpenny
Last night's show was the second one in Montreal and while the crowd were not quite as loud they were yet again fantastic and certainly the best crowd of the tour so far!
The show had no technical issues like last night that I could see and the music and sound were fantastic. Last night I was on the right side when the crowd were cheering before Mother but tonight I experienced the sound like never before, the crowd cheering on the floor from where I was sat was amazing, I've never heard anything like it.
Roger again spoke to the crowd in French and made mention of the infamous spitting incident, and then saying "...but enough of that I wont be doing that tonight!"
At half time I decided to go and watch the 2nd half of the show from the right side again but go a bit higher this time. I was able to take a fantastic panorama from my seat that came out real well.
The second half went again without fault and the wall coming down was like last night, only the centre section came down and the ends stayed up.
It was yet another fantastic show and probably in the top 3 of the tour so far as far as I'm concerned.
