    Well... I know it's an old band and their Dark Side Of The Moon has been released some 30 years ago but it's still, to me, one of the absolute best groups to ever grace the Rock scene of the last 4 decades or so.

    Roger Waters is touring again and he will be stopping over in Phoenix for a live performance of the Dark Side Of The Moon. I couldn't resist, I got tix! Can hardly wait for Oct. 3rd now...:drool:

    Well........yeah...... :thumbup:

    Geez. I didn't know he was touring. You're gonna have a blast. No doubt he will be surrounded by superb musicians, and it will be flawlessly played. I'd hook up in a heartbeat, too!

    Not likely a band of that influence will grace the music scene again. If they did, these days they'd have to learn a dance routine first to get an audience. :roll:

    Oh yes. I prefer the albums before DSOTM and certainly everything after The Wall was kind of superfluous (except maybe The Final Cut - I was about 18 at the time, the threat of nuclear war still seemed very real, and perfectly captured in Two Suns in the Sunset), but they are in my top 5. Actually, they are in my top 2.

    I watched the 'reunion' last year for the Live 8 concert and it brought tears to my eyes. Waters' voice isn't what it once was, but in every other way they were fantastic. Dave Gilmour looks like someone's grandad, but there aren't many (and there never have been many) who can hold a candle to him on guitar.

    Generally I wouldn't think of going to a Roger Waters concert, but live DSOTM? Wow, I'm jealous. I wonder how many Airmiles points I'd need to fly London to Phoenix...?

    Hey, you only have to worry about the plane ticket and the tix for the concert. You have a place to stay here, if you want. :)

    Hang in there! I sense a shift back to good music very soon. It's been a couple of decades but I feel things are going to turn around soon.

    Really? You think so? :scratch: I'm not used to such optimism from you regarding the music scene. You must be playing out again. :razz:
