    I would love to see this, but it is too expensive. I hate these shows where plaza level tickets are still $200+. McCartney did it too. The best tickets I landed for Roger Waters were 1) floor row 26 for $275, and 2) way up in the rafters with a side view of the stage (almost behind it - it's basically an obstructed view), which would just completely suck for his kind of show, since there are so many visuals that you're not going to see properly. That is $100. Broooootal. I would probably pay that if I could get a seat in the rafters but with a better view of the stage, but of course those are all sold out. Sigh. When I saw Pink Floyd on the Division Bell tour in '94 a good ticket cost me $30. Man I miss the 90s, lol.

    I think the album is brilliant. Extremely pessimistic and depressing (in other words, honest), with some fantastic music, great musicians, strong lyrics and messages. This is Roger Waters at his angriest, and I think I like it. I do miss the (slight) subtlety that albums like Animals had, when compared to lines on this album like "Imagine a leader with no fucking brains", but that's my biggest complaint and it's a minor one.

    I haven't listened to the album but the new songs he played at the show were fantastic.  I think he did like four new ones right in the middle of the first set and then one during the encore.  I thought they flowed with the show great.  It made me want to get it.
