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 forty-six of the tour, and the show arrives in Winnipeg for two, back-to-back concerts. The Winnipeg Free Press reviewed the concert, and asks "Hey you... Wasn't The Wall a ball?". In their review, they note that: "Roger Waters brought his giant stage show to Winnipeg Thursday for the first of two nights at the MTS Centre, and turned his semi-autobiographical tale of isolation, alienation, loneliness and delusion into an over-the-top antiwar special-effects-filled event that will probably go down as one of the most ambitious concerts ever produced.

"...The telling was masterfully rich in detail, with every song featuring some effect to further the narrative, which was given a new antiwar subtext. After the emotional climax, Waters finished the night with his band playing Outside the Wall on an assortment of acoustic instruments, ending off a thrilling multimedia show that turned a bleak concept album into an amazing one-of-a-kind spectacle and a celebration of humanity."

If you went to this show in Winnipeg, 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.
