Gonna see it in Izod.

I told my friend to buy tickets specifically in MSG and he got them there instead.

Saw him at Jones Beach a few years ago, and I've gotta say it was kinda meh.

The light show and theatrical setup is pretty amazing, but don't expect to be blown away musically. Roger can no longer sing, and he was never that great of a bassist to begin with.

I was much more impressed by Gilmour's show when he toured 4 or 5 years ago. Seeing him (with Rick Wright on keys) at Radio City was and still is one of the musical highlights of my life.

That being said, you're definitely gonna have an amazing time at MSG.

haha yeah I saw The Dark Side of The Moon tour in 06 at MSG, and 07 at Izod... much better at MSG, but you'll still have a sick time.

We paid $160 a seat for the front of section 341, which is pretty much the most I'd ever pay for a show unless they dig up Morrison.

God this work day needs to end!!

Gilmore has stated he will sit in at one show. The rumors have been either MSG or O2. My $$$ is on London but we can dream

The most I've actually paid to see a show was $300 a seat to see Jimmy Page and the Black Crowes front and center in Philly. It was worth every penny.

Yeah I doubt it would be this show if it was MSG, possibly in November, but yeah... London would be the logical choice.

Never has there been a more clear example of the whole being greater than the parts

Waters = great

Gilmore = great

Gilmore singing Waters lyrics = Divine touched by god kind of vibes.

Saw the 1st and 2nd shows in Chicago two weeks ago, it was amazing.

I will say his 2007 Dark Side tour was a bit better imo. He played more songs. THe Wall tour has a ton more "stuff" though, you'll see.

Will not be seeing this show.

The last time I saw Roger at MSG was when Pink Floyd was touring "Animals" in '77.

Roger was strumming an acoustic section alone on stage when some knuckle head in the audience tossed an M-80 at him. I watched it sail over his head and explode behind him against the stage curtain.

The Waters temper is legendary and it was on full righteous display for a few minutes. The poor guy had the crap scared out of him. Some guy in the audience got the **** knocked out of him as the house lights went up.

Eventually the band came back and finished the set. Animals is still some of Water's best music with the Floyd imo.

Hopefully Gilmore and Mason join him for a show or two on this tour. That would be nice to see.

I'm going to the show in Ft. Lauterdale in Nov.

Interested to hear how the shows are.

Great article in Rolling Stone with Waters on the cover (great shot with a brick wall behind him... sounds pedestrian but it's actually a cool shot).

I've heard it's a fairly spectacular display of imagery. Sorry I am missing out on this one. Have fun.

Bought tickets to a Pink Floyd show back in the late 80's (Momentary Lapse of Reason tour) the day of the concert.

center, 17 rows from the stage...face value

Saw them again years later around 95 or 96 in Yankee Stadium - Free

Both were equally awesome
