I've got 2 or 4 tickets for Dallas, in hand for cash exchange, in section 325 row N, $200 each...same section a few rows down are going for $197+bull$#@! charges = $260 on ticketcity.com
Took my daughters to see it here in St. Louis a couple of weeks ago. Absolute chills (of course, I'm a mammoth Floyd fan). While G.E. Smith is in the band (as someone mentioned), Dave Killminster (sp?) plays lead. GE plays rhythm and bass.
I won't spoil the show for you, but Mother was the absolute highlight for me. It was surreal (you'll know why once you see it or click link above). Also, don't expect that they're going to rip into some WYWH or DSotM as an encore - the show ends with Outside the Wall.
I'm taking hope from DG and RW playing together this summer. For the first time, it was Gilmour's idea (Top 5 guitarist of all time IMO). By all accounts, they were quite chummy. It's all on youtube if anyone wants to check it out.
Are the speakers confirgured for surround sound?
As I've posted earlier, I'm going to see the show with two friends of mine who I have known for 46 years. We saw the Animals tour together in '76 and this will be a killer reunion for us.
I picked a bad time to quit smoking dope but that's the way it goes.
LOL. Clouds of it. Everywhere. Pray you don't get drug tested the next day at work.
This should probably go in GM, but any Dallas-ites out there know what the food situation is like around the AAC? I have to pick up my tickets at the will call, so we're gonna try to get down and park pretty early. On google looks like a bunch of ritzy places are pretty close, I'm just looking for a pub or something lower end (Pluckers-esque) to kill the time in, got 2 teenage boys with us so something fairly cheap within walking distance would be nice. Thanks in advance, I'll hang up and listen...
If the Dallas show is like Houston, you can pick up your tickets starting sometime that morning.
Yeah, I got an e-mail from Waters' website saying they would be available starting at 10am, just looking for a cheap place to hang out and down a few pints before the show...
Another side note, for anybody who has already gone, are cameras allowed? I've seen a lot of people on RW's Facebook page say yes, but I'd like confirmation who has actually been to a show. I heard no lenses larger than 2 inches in diameter and no attachable lenses, but otherwise anything goes. Would love to take my wife's $400 Sony digital, get some really great shots...
never been to Neo's, but it's gotten fantastic reviews.
Thanks! Just noticed that El Fenix is nearby, that might be the spot. That or $#@!'s, just keep the booze flowin' so I can be comfortably numb...
Great, thanks! Have floor seats, about 16 rows back, I should be able to get some awesome shots. Been waiting since May for this show, kind of put it out of my mind since it was so far away, but the excitement has been building all this week. I put on "Is There Anybody Out There" (the live release that came out a few years ago) in my car this morning, man, when the first bombastic notes of "In the Flesh?" hit, that arena is just going to explode. Cannot wait!

For sure the first time I've ever been to a concert where there were more 50+ than teenagers.
In addition to not clicking the above links, I switched the radio this morning when Floyd came on...want to go in cold.
PS - I still got some extra tickets available for Dallas.

For those who have seen the concert is there an intermission?
Haven't seen it yet, but from what I've read on Roger's FB page, yes there is, 20 minutes or so... And the show pretty much begins on time, 8pm, though I've seen a few people report 8:10-8:15.
I think it was around 8:15 for the start, and there was a solid 25-30 minute intermission.
Already excited, been building all week, about to head up do Dallas, enjoy a night with my brother and family, then spend tomorrow getting "comfortably numb"...
Czech are you anywhere near section 111?
I am actually on the floor, Section 11.
Less than 24 hours. I can't $#@!ing wait.
That was amazing. Who was the guy walking around on the floor level with the homeless sign?
From what I've read, just one of the roadies, doing a little pre-show performance...
Huh, we were sure it was someone famous by the way people were going crazy when they saw him and getting their picture taken with him.
That show was easily the most amazing thing I have ever witnessed in my life. Absolutely jaw-dropping. Everyone who is going to see this is in for a ride. I will never forget this show.
Yeah, it's the best concert I've ever seen. No other show I've ever been is ever comparable. I thought my ear drums were going to burst during the last solo on Comfortably Numb, but it was so $#@!ing awesome. Roger Waters could sell out shows while putting forth very little effort, but he goes all out and the production of the show is fantastic. The scenes they showed during Bring the Boys Back Home of the little kids being surprised in class by their dads getting back from overseas were really powerful. Especially the last one where the little girl completely lost it when she saw her dad. I've never seen anything like that concert. I'm so glad I went.

I saw it in Houston last night as well. The staging was the most impressive thing I have seen in a concert setting. Completely different experience from the Dark Side of the Moon tour a couple of years ago. I liked the overall experience for Dark Side better as they did an intro set, played Dark Side, and then did an Encore. For The Wall, it was straight into The Wall and nothing else. Which makes complete sense, but you alway want to see more if possible. Highly recommend the show to anyone, even if you are not a huge Pink Floyd fan. It is really great theatre at the end of the day. My highlights were Mother, Vera, and Comfortably Numb........ Chills through all three and close to tears during the last two.
$#@! yeah, just got confirmed, suite tickets!! So $#@!ing pumped!!!
Unbelievable show. It exceeded my high expectations and is easily my favorite concert of the year, if not my lifetime. I want to talk about everything I loved about it, but will keep my mouth shut while everyone else sees it. The intro, Mother, Comfortably Numb, the animation, the props, the ending, wow. Makes the "cool visuals" at other concerts look so tiny and uncreative in comparison. I wish I could see it again already, but probably will never have another opportunity.
Glad I'm not the only one that thought it was one of the more amazing concert experiences they've ever had. I still get chills thinking about it. And for $#@!'s sake, I hope they recorded it for DVD release this time...
Went last night in Houston. Unfuckingbelievable.
Also, offical motion to rename this board "Brick in the Wall" after that amazing performance last night.
Holy $#@!ing $#@!....just got back. The solo at the end of Comfortably Numb was up there with one of the best moments of my life. I was in a suite basically parallel to the stage and I have never been to a show where the crowd was singing so loud. The production was amazing. Did I mention Comfortably Numb? The machine gun he was shooting was a little tense but who cares. Amazing.
edit.....holy $#@! I just $#@!ing saw Pink Floyd.

My God. That was, without doubt, the best concert experience I have ever had. As someone else posted earlier on this thread, I'm not even sure you could call it a concert. Comfortably Numb was definitely the highlight of the evening.
Words fail me when trying to describe this experience. You just have to see it to fully appreciate it.
finagled some suite tickets, as well, to Dallas' show tonight. I don't have anything to add other than another vote that it was amazing... it felt more like some sort of acid trip Broadway show than any sort of traditional concert. unequivocally the most impressive stage set i've ever seen.
Wish there was Dallas video but this is pretty close. The Pig came within about 20 feet from us at the most. Just an amazing experience.
I am still too pumped up to go to sleep and I picked a bad time to quit smoking dope.
No $#@!, same here. Plus I might have done some other additives.
Great show. The technical aspects of it are amazing. Too stagy for me to go totally insane about it, but it was $#@!ing awesome. Might be my 2nd favorite show of all time.
Just got home from Dallas show. Words can't do it justice.
Seriously. If you missed this chance to see this show you will regret this till the day you die. I took a buddy last minute 9who got a ticket literally given to him today) and said that he went from being someone "who knew a few PF songs" to they are now his favorite band. He said that the live performance of that show "makes him want to learn an instrument and play just that album".
That wasn't a concert. calling it a concert is an injustice. That was an event. I felt like I just witnessed VY cross the goal line.
Unreal. Now I am going to eat my 4 Jack in the box tacos because I have the munchies.
