Saw the show three times in arenas vack in 2011. I'm seeing it on Zurich on wednesday. Can't wait!

Hi Frank

How was it? Comapred to the arena shows?

Was there a pit? or seats on the pitch?

So excited for staurday, except I think its going to rain!!!

cheers UKJ

Sorry for the late reply.

It was impressive as usual. Bigger that the area show in everything (though not necessarily different or better). Perfect sound.

Yes, there was a (big) pit in the standing area. For sure it was a paying pit, given that it filled just before showtime.

T H E moment of the show for me.

@ sound

I've never heard better sound at a stadium show in Vienna. And everybody I spoke to agreed. So it is possible. Even at huge venues.

so, rogers got round to making a movie of the recent wall shows (2010 -13), just had its premier at the Toronto film festval.

Looks like its great, but not a straight concert film, of course.

here are a few comments.

I just saw this on Blu Ray and it's like nothing I've ever seen before. Nothing. It blew my mind. I can't even begin to imagine how amazing the actual shows must have been.

I did the iTunes pre-order thing for the new album, although I will get a physical copy as soon as I can.

First track available is Smell The Roses... Wow... Classic Roger, some new sounds, reminders of Animals...

Starting to get very excited for Is This The Life We Really Wanted.

I think I like that,  especially the somewhat familiar bass line!

Second track available today, Deja Vu. Sounds like an outtake from Amused To Death. It blows my mind that album is 25 years old.

I am getting very excited about this album...

So in Roger news, the tours underway lambasting trump as it goes,  with 4 or 5 new song in it too, the Floyd fans are moaning about tiny things, but it seems they are worse than us lot at that! :D. Apparently it's more visually astounding than the recent wall shows ?! 

the albums out tomorrow, to pretty good reviews, but has few if any guitar solos in it! 

Rog has had a go at Dylan over his recent covers albums.  Bobby has released 11 albums since rogers last  (rock) one , ok 6 are covers, but still.  4 of them have been very very good , and that's not counting the bootlegs either.

On my first full listen to the album now. Classic Roger of course and I'm liking it a lot.

My goodness, this is one terrific album. I'm amazed just how great it is. I'd hoped of course but the album fulfills in every respect. Last 3 songs meld beautifully into each other. My only (very slight) criticism is that maybe there's just too much of the radio/TV clips but they push the narrative.

Now off to listen again1

Is This The Life We Really Want

 

[Intro: Donald Trump]
So as an example you’re CNN. I mean it’s story, after story, after story is bad. I won. I won. And the other thing, chaos. There’s zero chaos. We are running- This is a fine-tuned machine


The goose has gotten fat
On caviar and fancy bars
And subprime homes
And broken homes
Is this the life, the holy grail?
It’s not enough that we succeed
We still need others to fail


Fear, fear drives the mills of modern man
Fear keeps us all in line
Fear of all those foreigners
Fear of all their crimes
Is this the life we really want?
It surely must be so
For this is a democracy and what we all say goes


And every time a student is run over by a tank
And every time a pirate’s dog is forced to walk the plank
Every time a Russian bride is advertised for sale
And every time a journalist is left to rot in jail
Every time a young girl’s life is casually spent
And every time a nincompoop becomes the president
Every time somebody dies reaching for their keys
And every time the green land falls in the fucking sea is because

 


All of us, the blacks and whites
Chicanos, Asians, every type of ethnic group
Even folks from Guadeloupe, the old, the young

Toothless hags, super models, actors, fags, bleeding hearts
Football stars, men in bars, washerwomen, tailors, tarts
Grandmas, grandpas, uncles, aunts
Friends, relations, homeless tramps
Clerics, truckers, cleaning ladies
Ants – maybe not ants
Why not ants?
Well because its true
The ants don’t have enough IQ to differentiate between
The pain that other people feel and well, for instance, cutting leaves
Or crawling across window seals in search of open treacle tins
So, like the ants, are we just dumb
Is that why we don’t feel or see?
Or are we all just numbed out on reality TV

So, every time the curtain falls
Every time the curtain falls on some forgotten life
It is because we all stood by, silent and indifferent

Fantastic album! If only it had featured a big fat stratocaster solo somewhere (you know what/who I mean) it would have been perfect.
