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 fifty-three of the tour, and a return for Roger to Budapest. As our friend Werner Haider, from the Pulse & Spirit website told us, during the concert Roger mentioned "Juliette" just before Mother when he said what a fucked up guy he was! As to which Juliette this is, we're not's a clip from that moment in the show:

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.


This was the second time I saw Roger on his wall tour and though the first time was "on my own turf", I have to say that Budapest left a far better impression on me. Mostly to the fact that I was very close to the stage. In Zagreb we thought we should be in the center of arena to see the projections right and to get that feel of good surround sound this tour has. What we got were assholes with beers roaming around during quiet parts and distant view of the old man, with lots of iphones and shit in the air, blocking our sight. The crowd in Zagreb was "better" in terms of loudly enjoying the gig, but this is The Wall, and to be honest, that didn't suit me that much.

Budapest was quite a different thing. We were close, some 8-10 meters away from Rog, I saw everything the band was doing, we felt we were right infront of the action. I had "the golden circle" tickets and the crowd was standing quietly in front of the stage and listening to the concert. Apart from two drunk bastards that ruined part of Goodbye Blue Sky and Mother, I felt like Rog was playing this gig for me and couple of folks around me. We weren't standing tight like sardines, we could breathe and watch the show. Excellent!

The band was really great; there have been some changes in the projections; Rog added practically a whole new song after abitw2; the sound there in the front was really great, far better than in Zagreb, probably because of the fact that I could finally hear those low bass tones that were missing in Zagreb, cause he has powerful woofers below the stage, and I could hear them with my whole body. During the infront of the wall nazi part, you could actually hear Graham Broad's drum playing, instead of the sound coming from the PA.

I was sceptic at first about seeing the wall so close to the stage, but looking at the band so close, seeing the white in their eyes was a great experience for me.

I met with Werner from P&S after the show again, "poor" bloke is tired from all the touring - that was his 11th and last concert on this tour. We booked a hotel, spent the next day sightseeing, Budapest is beautiful.

I am so glad I bought another ticket to see Rog. It's like I saw a completely different concert. If he tours this monstrosity somewhere near me again, I'm going!


Hopefully coming soon - we welcome all contributions!

YOUR HELP NEEDED! We want to cover Roger's concerts the best we can, to share the experience with everyone, especially those who won't be able to attend the shows. We'd love to see ANY pictures, tickets scans, reviews, newspaper reports, and anything else you come across for this show - we look forward to hearing from you!
