Do not read on if you don't want surprises to be spoilt, regarding what the band played.

The first of Roger's two performances at this event had a nice, varied selection of songs - one of his, four Floyd songs, and two covers. Roger was augmented with My Morning Jacket as the backing band, GE Smith on guitar, and Lucius providing backing vocals. As a nice surprise, for the final song, Neil Young joined them all to duet with Roger, both of them strumming acoustic guitar.

The set list above is as shown on the website. If you went, please let us know what you thought of the show (and if the set list above is correct).

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!
