The final show of Roger's 2006 tour ended on a high note, with a great, celebratory show in Seattle. Comments are now arriving that suggest the band played their hearts out, and it all bodes well for the (currently rumoured) 2007 shows. Our thanks to Jake Nist for the pictures on this page.

We hope you've all enjoyed the coverage we've given to the tour - which wouldn't have been possible were it not for the generosity of Brain Damage visitors who took the time and effort to contact us with their thoughts, pictures, and other information relating to these shows. And for those who weren't able to see Roger this time around, we hope that our coverage gave you an insight into the shows and the atmosphere there.

Finally, our thanks to Roger, Nick, Andy, Snowy, Dave, Jon, Harry, Ian, Graham, Pat, Carol and Katie, along with all the unsung heroes working away behind the scenes, for bringing fans in Europe and North America a hugely entertaining show!

There will no doubt be reviews of this show in a number of the local newspapers, and we will give you details of these, and the websites you can read them on, here. The first of these can be found at the Seattle Post Intelligencer.

Just got back from the show...........excellent. Forgive me for not being more in depth, but I'm a bit tired.

I guess you all know the set by now so I'll just say that the show was worth what I paid to get to the 5th row on the floor. Only hitch was Rogers' mike not being on for the start of the vocals on Brain Damage(?). No problem........they ran another strain and all was fine. Otherwise it was great.

For being the last stop of the tour they still had good enthusiasm and energy. I was a bit disappointed in the crowd, but seeing as how the average age of attendees was around 45-50 I guess it should be expected to some degree. But the call for the encore was much more like the concerts of my younger days..........very loud and raucous. They came back and treated us to "Brick in the Wall" and Comfortably Numb". I liked Kilminsters' play a bit more than Bramhall.

Some random thoughts about the Seattle show: A fantastic show to capture the end of this leg of the tour. My wife (first RW show ever) was as impressed as I was. Roger was in good form and the band was full of energy.

Roger's acoustic guitar was acting up just for second, then all was well. It's great to see him playing a bit more bass, especially on the DSOTM numbers. Great to hear Sheep in concert, and there were even barking dogs in the effects.

The crowd was really into it. The acoustics at the Key Arena are OK for concerts, but the venue is more suited for sports events. Having said that, the crowd kept things alive, especially during the encores.

Sound was mixed well- damn Kilminster is loud! Loved the encores, especially with the inclusion of Vera and Bring the Boys Back Home segued into Comfortably Numb. Roger was really into working the crowd tonight. He would go far stage right, then far stage left, beckoning those even in the upper sections to join in with his energy.

Leaving Beirut was well received, and it was funny to see Roger "dancing" around the stage when he wasn't singing. It looked like he wanted to be playing the drums. Jon's voice sounds different now as compared to Dogs in 99. Did anyone else think that? On the Run was fantastic, with a ton of extra sounds. Come back soon, Roger!

Well what can I say! Roger never disappoints. Making the trip from central BC Canada to Seattle was well worth the effort. I was fortunate to be at Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon tour show at the Autostad in Montreal in 1975 and then to be present here tonight in Seattle. No, it was not Pink Floyd, but it was a fresh take on an extremely well known piece. Technically, the sound was impeccable.
