Mar 30 2010, 20:45 di IlyasAhmedКонцерт был впечатляющий. Приятно было увидеть множество друзей и знакомых. Чрезвычайно радостно встретить (боюсь перечислять, чтобы кого-то забыть).
Очень плохо была сделана зона танцевального партера - и это вызвало гневную реакцию Роджера Уотерса. Он выходил в народ специально, чтобы пришедшие люди увидели его, и со сцены также обращался к многочисленным фанатам в танцпартере ("What are you doing over there?"). И мы даже не могли воду передать - охранники вели себя крайне грубо. Помню, даже ко мне подходили, не разрешали вставать.
У нас были места в дальние сектора сидячих мест. Но мы заняли места ближе - первые сектора с дорогими билетами не были заполнены.
Меня впечатлило звучание группы и обещанные квадроэффекты. Солидное оборудование сцены включало экраны и пиротехнику.
Магия записей Pink Floyd передалась и в концерте. Концерт начался с In the Flesh, затем Mother. Песня, которая отправила меня в транс - Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun. Восторгу не было предела: 1967-68!! Вот это да. …
Ott 10 2009, 18:07 di TorenkownageSo this makes my third year in a row seeing The Australian Pink Floyd Show. They were amazing in 2007, fell off a bit in 2008 (the setlist wasn't worth writing home about), but now they're back on top and in perfect form! The Aussies have topped themselves yet again! It's a greatest hits setlist with a few surprises thrown in. The lasers and lights were flashing, the inflatables were jumpin' and the band did not disappoint!
Firm in my seat, the lights were low. A blank Mr. Screen. A drum set to the back-left, the keyboards in the front-right, and various guitar rigs set up inbetween. It felt like a Floyd concert before it even started. The lights dimmed all the way, Mr. Screen showed signs of life, and the iconic heartbeats slowly faded in. "...I've been mad for fucking years, absolutely years, over the edge for yonks...", "...I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like most of us have...". The thumping and maniacal laughter reached a breaking point, to where it could get no louder…

The Australian Pink Floyd Show
Heineken Music Hall, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
March 1st 2009
This was the second time I saw the Aussiefloyd live. The last time was in Nijmegen (http://www.last.fm/event/446023) where they did The Best Of The Wall, now they were back in a bigger venue with the complete version of The Wall.
We (my dad and I) were sitting on row 1 right in front of the bass player. So we had a great view of the stage.
At 8 PM exact the house lights went down and the tune of Outside the Wall started to play. In the Flesh? came suddenly and started with a blast. Awesome. Crystal clear sound coming from the stage. What a sound and what a light show! Simply awesome.
They played almost a note-to-note rendition of the original Wall show in 1980 and 1981. Instead of real brick wall they used a backdrop screen showing animations based on the original Wall footage, The Wall movie and ofcourse their own Australian humour.
Mag 12 2008, 13:20 di rikvanorsouwSun 11 May – Roger Waters
Finally I got to see Roger Waters “in the flesh”. And it was a great day and performance! The weather was beautiful and around 4:30 PM we arrived at the entrance of Megaland. There were already people waiting in front of the gate, but not as much as I expected. Around 5:15 PM the gates opened and we were walking towards the stage. We had great places! Just about 5 rows in front of us and we were facing the backing singers. We spend some time drinking, eating and talking with all the people around us. Around 8:15 we had some movement on the stage and it started!
I’m not going to mention everything but here are some highlights for me:
Mother: Sylvia Mason-James did a great performance of the ‘Mother’ part but she looked so tensed and stressed about it. I wonder where that came from.
The Fletcher Memorial Home: Roger was really in his element this one of his best songs.
Perfect Sense: a stunning solo by PP Arnold. Really awesome.

21. Pigs On The Wing (both parts)
The happy song on Animals. The other three are full of Orwellian references and Waters heavy-handedness, but this is an escape. I listened to this during biology today. Teacher didn't notice.
20. Astronomy Domine
There are actually two versions of this. One was on The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, an album mostly known for being "the one with Syd Barrett." The other is on Ummagumma, and the length is nearly doubled. Myself, I prefer the original. The voice reading out the names of stars at the beginning is the band's manager at the time.
19. See Emily Play
This sounds like a Beatles song on even more acid than usual (for a Beatles song.)
18. Point Me at the Sky
This didn't do so well in 1967 when it was released, and it is one of the most difficult songs to find. It is also the one that I just got a week ago. (Thank deity of your own choosing for BitTorrent. …

I didn't think I was going to make it. I had a rehearsal and I thought it was going to run much longer than it did. But I got lucky and got out early and also lucky because the band didn't take the stage until 8:30 so I only missed the first 30 minutes of the show. I heard Wish You Were Here while I was walking over the hill to the venue which was dotted with dozens of people who couldn't get tickets. I missed the next song because when you crest the hill and are directly behind the wall you can't hear anything. As I was walking to the venue I met a very nice guy who reassured me that I hadn't missed much of the show at all and that there was plenty of the set left.
I got there just on time to hear Perfect Sense followed by Leaving Beirut during which I could stop myself from sobbing openly. I work day in and day out with hardcore neocons and to be surrounded by people as angry and passionate as myself about what is going on in this country just was overwhelming. …

Mag 19 2007, 7:59 di BobbyTheNinjaFri 18 May – Roger Waters
This concert was amazing with Roger Waters playing mostly Pink Floyd music. He played 3 of his solo songs and THE REST Pink Floyd songs. During the song Sheep they brought out this giant pig balloon and it had these two people walking around with it through every hall way around the seatings and the lawn where I was, holding on to it with strings:
One side, "Habeous Corpus Matters (Kafka rules)". On the other, "Religion Divides Us All" (Under that says "Is that Democracy?") and "Tony Blair, good riddance!" On the Bottom, "Free At Last", The rear, "Impeach Bush Now".
They also had this giant prism appear OUT OF NOWHERE during Dark Side of the Moon:
The following was the set list and it was an AMAZING set list:
