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 sixty-one of the tour, and just eleven shows left. The 2012 dates have flown by! Brain Damage visitor Stephane Pellerin reported back quickly to say "Just came back from the RW show in Montréal... It was amazing!!!"

The Montreal Gazette were there. Their review starts: "As the likelihood of a Pink Floyd reunion becomes increasingly distant with each passing year, this second go-round of Roger Waters’ The Wall Live Tour serves as good a Pink Floyd finale as any fan could ever hope for – and then some. Waters worked hard for the money (top ticket price last night was $268), with grotesque marionettes and hallucinogenic multi-media projections worthy of Syd Barrett, not to mention a clean, crisp audio wall of sound that made sonic rock classics like Comfortably Numb absolutely soar.

"Pink Floyd’s original, ill-fated The Wall tour back in 1980 lost millions, something Waters’ 2012 version most surely will not. New technology has transformed this rock opera into a fast-paced and seamlessly orchestrated spectacle for fans raised on MTV and weaned on video games.

"In this city – even during Montreal’s maple spring/summer of discontent – Waters can pretty much do no wrong, not even after his famous onstage meltdown at Olympic Stadium in July 1977 during a Pink Floyd concert that is often cited as the catalyst for Waters writing The Wall. “I was a miserable young man 30 years ago,” Waters said last night. “I’m happier now.” Fittingly, when the 15,323 fans at the Bell Centre gave him a five-minute standing ovation, Waters wiped his eyes with his hand."

If you went to this show in Montreal, 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.
