COMMENTS

Roger's tour of The Wall stays in Belgium, with a second show at a venue that Roger has been in a few times, both as a solo artist and while he was still a part of Pink Floyd, added due to lightning fast sales of the first night.

General sale tickets went on sale on June 4th, through LiveNation.be. The public sale will also see a limited number of VIP packages made available for each show on the tour. Our thanks to Hans Greven for the ticket scan shown to the right.

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-nine of the tour, and the second of two nights in Antwerp. The tour now moves to Paris for the first of four nights there (albeit split with two shows in May, and two shows in June).

RTBF reviewed the concert, and their nicely illustrated article can be seen in full through this link. Our thanks to Julien Piscione for sending us this link.

If you went to this show in Antwerp, 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, Thierry Carne

The last time I've seen Rog in concert was at the same place in 2002. It was with mixed emotions for me because a Pink Floyd best of set without Mister Gilmour is just weird near uncomfortable. I was a bit disappointed. Rog just doesn't know how to sing Gilmour parts of songs. Not the same voice tonality. Listen to Wish You Were Here in Live8, 2005, to compare.

I was a little bit worried before the show this Saturday night. But the problem didn't exist. Why? Because The Wall is a story and the main character is Roger and little parts were sung by Sir Gilmour...

The show was just breathtaking from the begining to the end. The sound (too loud in 2002) was perfect to enjoy the music, voices and special effects!

The reorchestration of Mother and Run Like Hell were very good. The Comfortably Numb solos were well executed. David Kilminster has really improved over the years with Rog.

I've rediscovered some songs like Young Lust and In The Flesh? - very good and punchy! Too bad that David Gilmour has never played Young Lust since the Wall shows in 80-81.

The projections were superb except old films during The Trial, I think that new images would have a better fit with the rest of the show for this song.

Roger was very warm and friendly with the audience and very humoristic with his machine gun!

It was a great and lovely experience that I will remember for ever like Pink Floyd in Chantilly in 1994.
