Were you at this show CFDave? Heard it was spectacular....not surprising.

Great show, but not as impressive as the 2017 edition. He did a lot more of his solo material and less of the classic PF stuff than before.

With a 360-degree stage layout like in Dave's photo, there was a lot of time you couldn't see the musicians. I was hoping to at least see them on the big screen, but most of the material up there was imagery and political commentary.

Agreement or disagreement with the politics was not an issue; there was just so much of it that it (and the audience reaction to it) was a distraction from the music.

Layout-wise, I had a decent seat in the lower bowl, but it was right at the end of that runway in the lower righthand corner of Dave's pic, so I was staring straight at the butt end of that divider between screens. After a while, it felt like I was wearing Navin Johnson's glasses while trying to view the left and right sides.

All-in-all, I'm glad my sons and I took advantage of what might be our last chance to see a Pink Floyd member performing PF music. But TicketBastard's "convenience fee" was $50 per ticket, on top of the ticket itself. I'm not budgeting for any more entertainment in that price range when I retire!

Exactly why I wasn't there this time. I've seen him 3 times solo and once with PF. I'd pay it if he and Gimore could get over their butthurtness and do a Pink Floyd reunion, though.

I'd prolly also make an exception for that, as long as it was for good seats where I could see all the musicians for the whole show.

If I'm going to watch it on a big screen, it might as well be in my living room when they release the DVD.

FTR, I've seen Gilmour solo (1984), PF 2x w/o Waters (1988 & 1990), and now RW solo 2x. Gilmour in '84 and RW in '17 were among the best shows I've ever seen.

Agreed on not as good as the Wall show. For the amway I always choose the nosebleeds seats. I like it up there.
