COMMENTS

Roger's tour of The Wall hits the Big Apple and is sure of a warm welcome at MSG, a venue that Roger knows well from many years of performing there both on his own, and with Pink Floyd in days passed...

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.

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 thirteen of the tour, and by the sound of it, not unlucky for anyone (apart from those who weren't able to see the show, of course). The production has arrived in New York City for the first of three shows at the legendary Madison Square Garden - two shows at the start of October, and the third a month later.

Initial reports are that this was another good show, with the band and crew really going for it. BD's own Elliot Tayman noted that it was "another great gig - all went smooth. Another top performance". Having said that, he thought the children's choir was better in Chicago ("those kids rocked!"). Members of the Boys' Club of New York joined the band onstage for Another Brick - each venue features a different local vocal group.

There's a great, and very extensive, photo gallery over at the Broadway World website which is well worth a look. Elsewhere in the mainstream media, the New York Times reviewed last night's show, noting that it featured the "same words, [but a] different 'Wall'", noting the political and ideological updates to the presentation. The New York Daily News said that "If no one could deny the portent of this work - which addresses the most famous wall since Humpty-Dumpty's - last night's rendering of it found relief both in its brilliant use of sound, and in its architectural sense of theater."

If you went to this show, 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 COMMENTS by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Bill Haun

Was a great show! Waters seemed to really enjoy himself. The sound was astonishing.

CONCERT REVIEW by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Simon Wimpenny

I've never really thought Madison Square Garden (The Garden or MSG as its know locally) to be anything special to be honest, I know it's a legendary venue but the inside is actually a bit smaller than most arenas these days although I guess in its day it was the venue to play at and still is really.

The first show was great but a lot of mistakes both music wise and projection wise! It was great to see a show with my friend Jason who had flown over from the UK. We were 10th row on the left hand side but right on the aisle so close to the middle block. Jason was blown away by the show, I love seeing peoples reactions during the shows and after and hearing what they think about things. I looked over to Jason several times and his face was just sheer delight!

Make sure you check out Simon's blog at SimonWimpenny.blogspot.com where you'll find full details of all his travels, along with more pictures and videos.

YOUR HELP NEEDED! We want to cover Roger's concerts the best we can, to share the experience with everyone, especially those who won't be able to attend the shows. We'd love to see ANY pictures, tickets scans, reviews, newspaper reports, and anything else you come across for this show - we look forward to hearing from you!
