COMMENTS

Due to exceptional demand for tickets to see Roger's new tour of The Wall - they sold out in an hour - it now remains for a third night at the Rod Laver Arena, which Roger last performed in back in 2007.

The general sale of tickets through Ticketek began on Monday, July 11th at 9am. The public sale will also see a limited number of VIP packages made available for each show on the tour. Our thanks to Peter for the ticket scan shown to the right.

SET LIST - highlight the following with your mouse to read...
FIRST HALF: In the Flesh, The Thin Ice, Another Brick in the Wall Part 1, The Happiest Days of our Lives, Another Brick in the Wall Part 2, Mother, Goodbye Blue Sky, Empty Spaces, What Shall We Do Now, Young Lust, One of My Turns, Don't Leave Me Now, Another Brick in the Wall Part 3, The Last Few Bricks, Goodbye Cruel World
SECOND HALF:
Hey You, Is There Anybody Out There?, Nobody Home, Vera, Bring the Boys Back Home, Comfortably Numb, The Show Must Go On, In The Flesh, Run Like Hell, Waiting for the Worms, Stop, The Trial, Outside the Wall, Waltzing Matilda.

 

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 eight of the tour, and the third of four nights at the venue. Waltzing Matilda was aired again and the band do seem to be getting into this addition to the end of the show! If you went to this show in Melbourne 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, Peter

When I got tickets on the day they went on sale, I had no idea what to expect from this show. I purposefully tried to avoid as much as I could - pictures, video, audio. I knew the album well of course, and couldn't fail to see the odd snap or mention on the news down here in Oz, before this show, but nothing can prepare you for the sonic and visual onslaught from the moment the puppet is brought on stage by the guards, right through to when the wall itself falls down right at the end.

I was sat in the Upper section and was worried that not being down the front, my view would be spoiled. It wasn't. If anything I think the show is better from further back to see the screen properly and to take in the many messages shown on it.

Musically it sounded like they all nailed it. The audience was pretty quiet which I was surprised at but it meant we could all hear better. The band seem to love doing the show, and that probably helps with the performance.

I now wish that I'd got the money together for tickets to another night as one was just not enough! Thank you Roger! You've made my year!! It was fantastic!

CONCERT REVIEWS and PICTURES by other BD CONTRIBUTORS

Hopefully coming soon - we welcome all contributions!

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!
