Night forty-two of the tour, and the arrival in Seattle. BD visitor Timothy Brakke told us that it was a "Wonderful show in Seattle. Roger was in good voice and he was clearly enjoying himself."

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.

BD visitor Nelson was clearly looking forward to the concert, and sent in the following pictures prior to the show itself. Click the thumbnails to see them in greater detail:

CONCERT COMMENTS by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Nelson

A dear friend at the show summed it up pretty well, "Roger Waters' The Wall 2012 was the greatest concert I have ever seen. Just awesome."

CONCERT REVIEW by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Rod Lacheney

I have been huge Pink Floyd/Roger waters fan since 1974. I've never tired of listening over and over. Just last week I finally got to go see Roger Waters the wall in Seattle. I have never had the chance to see him and always wanted to. I have DVDs of their concerts and was thrilled to get a big screen t.v. and surround sound. But to be there in person and to see the over the top most epic concert was just mind blowing for me and my 19 year old son.

I will go to my grave being so glad and thankful I got to see Roger Waters live with this wall tour Mr Waters put out millions for this tour and I can't thank him enough for thinking of his fans to give them the best of what there is to offer with today's technology not to mention he always has.

I know that Mr. Waters gets mail constantly from fans and most probably say the same thing. But I would love to look him in the eye, shake his hand and say thank you for your love of music and reaching into your soul and writing the most beautiful music that has carried me through so many years and has touched me deeply. Just recently I discovered Sirius radio Pink Floyd station. My wife and I actually go for drives in the car just to listen to it.

Thank You from Rod Lacheney in Gig Harbor Wa.

Below are some photos I took of tonight's Roger Waters show in Seattle. It started at 8:15pm. Pretty similar to the other shows but he did mention in the 60's he played at the Eagles Auditorium. They played there in 1968. Sure wish I had a tape of that show!

CONCERT REVIEW by BD CONTRIBUTOR, John Rivera

To put it in simple words or word.......AWESOME!!!!

I can honestly say I may have been one of the few fans (if not the only fan) in the arena who witnessed this magnum opus of rock in 1980 while living in Southern California.

I thought the 1980 concert would never be outdone. Mind you, I have seen a great many shows in my time but I always thought experiencing The Wall in 1980 was "It", until this tour.

I purchased my seats via the Roger Waters web site and thought "uh oh"! But to my surprise, the ticket agents were extremely courteous and even helped me with a small issue. Our seats were beyond outstanding. In fact I would say perfect. We were not on the floor but I was glad because we were able to experience the whole Wall.

The venue was perfect for this show. Just large enough to accommodate Roger's Wall but small enough to be able to see him strutting around without binoculars.

To hear the beginning chords reverberate throughout the arena and through my head with such clarity was amazing to say the least. To watch the puppets come to life took me back 32 years. To watch each brick get placed and then come to life was something I would never in my life thought I would see in person.

People watch movies and admire the special effects but to see these effects in person in front of your eyes still brings chills to my back.

Roger's voice was as good as he was in 1980. The band was, well AWESOME. Sadly it was not David playing guitar, Nick playing the drums or Richard on the keyboards but it was truely the next best thing. The musicians honored the founding members by playing each song note for note.

The solo on Comfortably Numb by David Kilminster was awesome. He it the solo note for note. The guitar even sounded much like David Gilmour's guitar.

Favorite parts of show? Snowy Whites Les Paul, Mother, In the Flesh??, Run Like Hell. And Outside The Wall.

Roger looked tired but he looked like he enjoyed Seattle and his fans. He looked at the crowd for longer than I thought he would and thanked us several times.

I may not totally agree with Roger's political views but I agree to disagree and would tear down any wall with him.

Roger Waters The Wall Live was just that, "Live" and I was able to enjoy it with my wife and son and can say that I am one of the only fans to have experienced it in two different centuries.

AWESOME!!!!
