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!

The penultimate show in New Zealand, and also the first chunk of the 2012 tour. One final blast of The Wall before the whole production makes the long journey over to Chile. If you went to this show in Auckland, 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.


An awesome show! Everything I hoped it would be and yet more! The subtleties in some of the projections were sublime, such as the silhouette of the small child walking along the stage during the finger pointing bit in "another Brick pt2", but hated the new ending to the song. Just doesn't fit!

Comfortably Numb, the guitar solo was fantastic, dare I say better than Gilmour from the last few PF Tours? YES I CAN as it was, Gilmour just seems to be going through the motions with it now. Snowy just blew it away!

The show was over just way too fast.

My only criticism would be the overtly politicalness of it. The original Wall was anti-war yes, but the main theme was alienation, and the new images just don't seem to gel to this, so the message was very heavy and laboured, and to the point of overkill.

Anyway, I'm glad I didn't miss it, Possibly the best show I've seen since RW in 2007 in Christchurch.


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!
