COMMENTS

Roger's tour of The Wall continues its run at The O2 Arena in the Greenwich area of London, with a show added following strong sales of tickets for the first three announced dates. Our thanks to Kevan Porter for the ticket scan shown to the right.

General sale tickets went on sale on June 6th through this direct link to Ticketmaster.co.uk. The public sale will also see a limited number of VIP packages made available for each show on the tour.

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 thirty of the tour, and the third of six shows at London's O2. As expected, this show didn't include David making another guest appearance...despite him making it clear that he'd just be doing one, there was a slight air of hope amongst a few audience members that he might be back, but generally there seemed to be a feeling of relaxation, with everyone knowing that "all" they would get is a pretty spectacular show, performed by a band at the heights of their abilities!

The first half in particular seemed to be blighted with people using their camera flashes repeatedly which proved a bit of a distraction, not least with the stewards trying to stop/warn the perpentrators.

In terms of overall performance, the band are getting better and better, and with little tweaks to the performance there's always something new to see.

If you went to this show in London, 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 PICTURES by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Alex Wrigley

Our friend Alex Wrigley was at the show, and took a number of pictures from his seat in what looks like the O2 Arena's level 4 area, fairly much face-on to the stage. From personal experience, this is a good position to watch The Wall from as you really get a great sense of The Wall itself, seeing the projections properly, enjoying the 3D effects, and more. You can see all of Alex's pictures over at his Facebook gallery.

CONCERT REVIEW by BD CONTRIBUTOR, John Ramsay

I just got back home to Glasgow after seeing The Wall from the 8th Row of the stalls in London's O2 (14/05/2011). I have to say even although I'm gutted I missed Mr Gilmour's appearance on 12th, it has to be the most astounding experience of my life!

I've loved The Wall since I was a sprog and I never in my puff thought I'd see this performed on stage in my lifetime. Roger has seriously outdone his artistic vision with this production and kicked its ass right into today's Sound & Vision Matrix. I can't wait to see the DVD when it's released!

Thank you so much Roger for bringing The Wall back to life for us who missed it first time around, and for all your finely chosen musicians who helped you re-create the Legend! We salute you!!! \m/ O \m/
