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 three of the tour, and the first of a trio of nights in Brisbane.

Brain Damage visitor Andrew McMillen's review of the show was published on TheVine.com.au, and his comments are accompanied by a nice picture gallery. In the review, Andrew notes that:

"So here we are: in Waters’ world for two hours and change, including an intermission. All eyes upon a 68 year-old showman who is, clearly, in his element. This entire exercise is a business venture, yes; a very profitable one, as it were. But: this man doesn’t have to do this any more -- he probably hasn’t for a very long time. Yet he endures, touring this absurd concept throughout the world, because he loves it. There can be no other explanation. And we love him for it, because… among many other reasons, at which other rock show in the world do you get to witness a plane crashing through a wall? It is a wholly absorbing spectacle; at times, so much so that one wishes it to never end. There is a consistent narrative built into proceedings; they’re playing The Wall, of course, but much of the imagery and projections are taken from the film version. The wall gradually fills the stage over the first hour. By the halfway point, the animations and graphics being displayed are so mesmerising that it becomes a source of annoyance that the wall is incomplete, as we can't see the whole thing. Build the damn thing quicker!"

You can read the full review here. Nice work, Andrew! 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, Alex Jefferson

Seeing all three nights here and wow - am I pleased at that?! The show really exceeded all my expectations with the stylish blend of effect, music and message. All the band played really well. I was worried that I would miss the guitar and vocal of Dave Gilmour but didn't.

The show seemed to go by in a flash, especially the second half, and I felt really sad when Outside The Wall finished and the band disappeared not to return. I was hoping for an encore. I deliberately didn't read setlists so didn't know if they did anything else at the end.

However it was such an amazing show I don't mind! Looking forward to tomorrow night now!

CONCERT REVIEW by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Pat Smith

This review is a little different. My husband has always been a huge Floyd fan and he talked me into going to this show. I'd never seen any of them live before and I now sincerely hope that this was not the last time.

It was a spectacular event and it is clear that Roger has put a lot of thought into the presentation. I wasn't so sure about the naked woman during one of the earlier songs, in the first half, but hubby seemed to enjoy it!

The Bring The Boys Back Home segment was so touching and I, and many of those sat around us, had tears at the scenes of the soldiers returning home.

If we can get tickets, we'll see the show again. I cannot believe my husband's finally managed to convert me!!
