Held the recorder on my knee out in the aisle when I wasn't getting up for people making bar runs. My seats were almost diretly under the seats from dhughes53 (Recorder 1), about 20 feet lower and to the left. Talkers and beer drinkers constantly throughout the show but only two bad ones one the recording. One drunk face plants at my feet during Deja Vu and another leans into the mics towards the end of Wish You Were Here. I lost track of how many times I had to get up to let idiots get past for beer and nachos, 10-15 times at least. A massive floor to ceiling and wall to wall screen backs the stage. The projections consist mainly of a camera walking through ruins and interstellar backgrounds with occasional overlays of the stage performers. Most of the visuals are new but they do use some of the traditional Floyd footage for Time and a piece of what looks like Gerald Scarfe animation for another song. Tickets said "Roger on stage promptly at 8:00". That didn't happen. At about 8:20, he finally hit the stage after a lengthy show on the back screen of a woman sitting on a sandy hill overlooking a shoreline (Intro on the track listing). Roger dressed in his usual all black but looking really haggered and needing a shave. Sound was good and the band is tight and professional but nothing spectacular. One of These Days has a couple of stumbles on the bass line. The vocals on Great Gig are ok but I've also heard better from some of the "tribute" bands. The best part is they project the heads of the singers on a space background to give it kind of a cheesy 70s Dr. Who/floating heads in space look. I liked it. The real show is the start of the second set when the come out with Dogs/Pigs and the Battersea Power Plant replica is created in 3d complete with minature pig and working smoke stacks. They use the side screens that create the replica for most of the second set in various ways, projecting various things on them and manipulating them up and down. During the middle section of Pigs, those in the band not playing put on pig masks and sat down around a table for a little champaign in the spirit of the song. The first four songs of the set all feature lots of anti-Trump language & visuals. The flying pig makes a appearance with anti-Trump language as well. After Brain Damage/Eclipse, there is no real pause for even a chanting of "encore" as they launch into Vera/BtBBH/Comfortably Numb right after the band intros. Lasers/lights make a giant pyramid in front of the stage for the last part of the show while projecting Roger in a "Wizard of Oz" type fasion on the big screen overlooking us all. Overall, the visuals are what make this a great show. Enjoy, SJ
