Have a good show. I am already looking forward to going to Milano next year!thumbs up

Thanks. Enjoy your's next year, too. I'm still beat up from last week's Nine Inch Nails roadtrip but there was no way I was going to miss this. 1 Waters & 2 NIN shows in a month is a very good month indeed!

I just saw NIN in Las Vegas! Good show but doesn't hold a candle to the 7 shows I saw 1994/1995 but nothing does, really.

I was the one who sent you a note about NIN in Oregon in comments on your website (chuckrh). I'm glad you were able to get a ticket. I saw them in 94/95 more than once, the best being the show with Bowie. My all time favorite concert. I also saw the very first show on the Downward Spiral tour in Seattle. I've seen them a lot. It has fun been watching Trent grow as an artist. He's a very different artist now. NIN is the rare band that gets better as they evolve. The current live band are all amazing musicians & the lights etc are always stellar. + near perfect sound. My email is listed on my profile if you ever want to get in touch offline. I know we have at least 1 mutual friend. I hope someone got a tape of Vegas. winking smiley

More shows to the European tour 2023, today have Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen been added.

A question to those who have seen Waters on the current tour:
Where is the best place to see the show? Close the stage or from a distance? Do you miss more of the visual effects if you are too close?

Do you see the band from behind as much as from the front wherever you sit?

I recently saw Waters at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. I was in the upper bowl, but I feel the spectacle of the show would be more enjoyable from the lower bowl. There's an inflatable pig and ship that do laps around the lower bowl (maybe 3 meters above the patron's heads). I could see it from where I was sitting, however I wondered what it would be like to have going over my head and to be that much closer.

After the opening song, the screens (shaped like a t) rise up above the stage and all band members are fairly visible from almost any vantage point. Waters seems to make a point of singing from each corner of the t-shaped stage. Hope that helps.

I think the sound will be best at either "goal/basket" or midcourt on either side based upon location of line arrays. I am close to the stage again like I was for Madison Square Garden.

BB and daspy are right. I had front row seats in the lower bowl (not on the floor) and my friend had a suite. First half of the show I was in the lower bowl and the second half I was in the suite. The lower bowl was far superior to the suite in all aspects. That said, it’ll be a great show wherever you are. The lower bowl is almost sensory overload (in a good way!).

Thank you Beasty, Daspy and Nashville!

No problem! That's what this board is for, when we're not being petty. Haha!

He has just cancelled both Polish concerts. Seems he is not interested in playing to people with different views to his. Imagine the whole arena full of people with Ukrainian flags and poor old Roger in the middle. Or the tickets just didn't sell due to backlash.

I think a lot of people have different views to his, not only the Poles…

True, however not necessarily with public backlash this size exercised.

I went last night in San Francisco (had the tickets since Jan. 2020). Sat in the first row off the floor, and it was perfect to see the screen, all the effects, the inflatables, sound, and the entire stage. The floor was great for the 2017 tour, but just off it in the first section is better for this "in-the-round" business (and "cheaper" too).

There's a story about his abrupt cancellation in Poland in the Independent. Maybe he can play a free gig for Vladimir's call-up instead, being as he is on the side of pigs and dogs now.

Gerard Depardieu, Steven Seagal, Roger Waters... What a good company.

Saw the show in Sacramento. I totally get the what he's trying to do with the combination of live performance and visual presentation. I had great seats at "the 40 yard line" 10 rows up in the lower bowl. Once they lifted the screen, I had a great view of the stage. This is not a Rolling Stones show where you get some variations in the set list. It's the same exact set list, every night to stay in sync with the visual part of the show.

The band is outstanding. But it's more like an Eagles concert than a Rolling Stones concert... Every note is played perfectly. No improvisation. Same "Have A Cigar" solo every night. Of course, they nail it.

Waters walks around and waves. Of course he does. What more could you ask from a 79 year old front man. Oh wait! I know another 79 year old front man...

IMHO, I'd prefer to see this band without all the visuals. In spite of his "@#$%& off" message before the show, it's not about his politics. The band is more than good enough on their own. I found the visuals distracting from a tight band doing a great job playing a solid set list of songs. I've been to lots of basketball games in arenas with radio controlled blimps and the like, so floating sheep and pigs aren't exciting to me.

Just my 2 cents. Bash away.

This is the same guy who writes " Kill all the queers and the coons and the reds and the Jews" on The Wall.

He spit on a guy in the crowd during the Animals tour.


Doesn't this pretty much contradict the stuff he presents us with in his shows?

A KNOWN JEW HATER. There's a group that demonstrates at his shows to make this fact ultra clear. If he crawls into NY, I will be happy to join that group.

I'm sorry to inform you that he actually just was in New York playing two shows at the MSG, so you missed that opportunity to join that pathetic group. But it seems you are more into crying online and label other people as antisemits without restrain. If I had your Outlook, I might report your stupid posts here.

And why would you label that particular group pathetic? No surprise there. I had heard he was going to do a show in NY but when I looked, I couldn't find it unfortunately or I surely would have been there. I knew that speaking out on this might get me banned from the site but I feel strongly enough about it and I simply had to. FYI, there have been other issues regarding religion that I have contacted BV about and he is completely sympathetic having had his country attacked by the nazis during world war II. But you do what you need to do.

A new message from Roger Waters:

THIS IS NOT A DRILL

HEY! LUKASZ WANTUCH, "LEAVE THEM KIDS ALONE!"

Correction Roger Waters didn’t cancel Krakow Gigs.

To Nadeem Badshah at The Guardian
And Anna Piatkowska at Gazeta Krakowska

Dear Sir and Madam
Your papers are wrong in their assertions that either, I or my management, has cancelled my forthcoming shows in Krakow, we haven’t.
It is true that a town councillor in Krakow, a Mr Lukasz Wantuch has threatened to hold a meeting asking the council to declare me “Persona non grata” because of my public efforts to encourage all involved in the disastrous war in Ukraine, especially the governments of the USA and Russia, to work towards a negotiated peace, rather than escalate matters towards a bitter end that could be nuclear war and the end of all life on this planet. Not withstanding that this chap Lukasz Wantuch seems to know nothing of my history of working, all my life, at some personal cost, in the service of human rights, he, in an article in a local newspaper urged the good people of Krakow not to buy tickets to my show. Not very democratic sir? If Mr Lukasz Wantuch achieves his aim, and my forthcoming concerts in Krakow are cancelled, it will be a sad loss for me, because I have been looking forward to sharing my message of love with the people of Poland, something I have been doing on many tours over a career that has lasted in excess of fifty years. And also, regrettably, it will deny the people of Krakow the opportunity to see my current show, “This Is Not A Drill,” which is an important addition to a lifetime's body of work. His draconian censoring of my work will deny them the opportunity to make up their own minds.

Yours,
Roger Waters

He's playing a character, George.

I'm worried you'll call the FBI and tell them you know who killed the Kennedys. "I have it on tape! And CD! And vinyl! And mp3..."
