I may be in a minority here, but post-Syd Floyd bores me. I live those early 45’s and the Piper at the Gates of Dawn album.

I love that album, although I also enjoy very much their 70s stuff pre-Animals.

Going on Saturday at the Wiltern - both shows Sat. and especially Sunday sold poorly.
All unsold VIP's - and there were many leftovers for Sunday - were converted to standard pricing.
Not surprising as the original VIP prices for the first few rows were an insane $450......
Looking forward to it - paid $62+ fees for a decent balcony seat when initial sales started.

Sold poorly? It was all resale and VIP until they dropped pricing on VIP. Good seats at face all sold in the first 48 hours.

I am going Fri in SF and Sat in LA. Got great seats for LA and needed to pull a favor for good SF seats.

Would love to see him and that setlist but unfortunately he's charging way too much in NY. Can't afford $70 cheapest tickets for Nick Mason, and $100 for a halfway decent seat. Would love to see him, but the most I'd spend is like $60 for fairly decent seats. Incredible setlist though and Nick is absolutely a legend. Still just the drummer though.

I'm pretty sure there was always a smattering of standard priced tix for the first show - some are still available even now (maybe they were converted from platinum).
And then when extremely overpriced VIP's sold poorly, they were converted to standard pricing - but even those aren't selling very well at the reduced standard prices.
As for the second show, the resale option was never avaialable, and as of this minute all seats in the mezzanine have dropped from $62+ down to $29+ for a 50% discount.
Most of the pit is still available - what was once $450 VIP's have been reduced to $178 standard, and even those aren't selling.
If it continues to sell poorly, might be able to get in for peanuts for that one, or at the least get a free upgrade.

Some friends and I are meeting at Beer Belly a couple blocks away before the show daspy - would be cool to see you again.thumbs up

If the second night seats going real cheap I might stick around for the 2nd night.

Doubt I will have time before show. I am driving down from Nor Cal in the morning and hoping to get to LA by 4, meeting my friend and getting there around 6.

I saw the show last night in SF and it was stunning- literally like stepping back in time. Walking in that room and it was 1967, London in a dark smoky club. To say it was psychedelic would be an understatement. The music was oozing Syd Barrett. Mason can still play the drums with reckless abandon and tunes like Arnold Layne, the Colour is Green, Fearless, Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun, See Emily Play and Bike were all living, fire breathing vital songs while the light show pulsated and time became fungible. It was an astonishing experience!

Just got back from the Wiltern show and ditto to the above.thumbs up
Very impressive, and what an incredible band of musicians he has. A friend I was with is a friend of guitarist Lee Harris who joined us for the pre-show meetup - total down to earth guy, and then to see him on stage blazing away some amazing Barret and Gilmour guitar riffs and licks...his slide on One of These Days was perfection. Syd era Interstellar Overdrive, Astronomy Domine, and Lucifer Sam were an astonishing way to blast off the show, and the Gilmour era Fearless and Childhoods End were amongst the highlights for me. Anyone a fan of early Pink Floyd who has a chance to see this show really should. While I might have referred to it as Nick Mason and his glorified tribute band previously, well perhaps that's really what it is...but damn it was good!

Thanks for those reviews Woz and Hairball. Less than a month until I see him in Boston - I’m giddy with anticipation for this show.

Thanks for the reviews, Woz and Hairball. I'm really pumped for this. Five shows are within a reasonable driving distance from me here in Ann Arbor. I've opted for a primo 2nd row center ticket for the show in Akron, and may hit the show in Detroit on my way home the following night.

No, there are a few jack holes over there I prefer not to deal with and have them step on my threasd. Will be on Planet Rock and possibly Dime.

Seeing this in Denver, can't wait. I know I am in the minority but I have big Floyd fan but not a fan of the Wall. Early Floyd is my favorite so this is very exciting for me.

I've had this discussion with many Floyd fans. I'm a massive Pink Floyd fan and for years I couldn't stand The Wall. I grew to appreciate it and I really enjoy it for what it is, but I still almost don't consider it Floyd. Its Roger Waters, as is The Final Cut, although at least The Final Cut is a little more musical. To me, The Wall, while being a great album, is exactly what Floyd NEVER was. Its not really musical, its insanely story driven, its not collaborative. To me, for years, The Wall was an INSULT to Floyd, which is why I always thought it was so funny that its some Floyd fan's favorite album. I didn't really understand how you could appreciate all of Pink Floyd then call The Wall your favorite album by them. When it finally clicks, its a solid record, but I maintain its still not really a "Pink Floyd" album.

To me, that middle sweet spot of Floyd is the best. Starting with Meddle and going through Animals. Meddle is when they finally gelled and were unstoppable. To me, Dark Side is like when I say Psycho is my favorite Hitchcock movie. Its so cliched to say, but it really is just so perfect. Then Wish You Were Here is arguably better, Animals I always have a special fondness for. But then early Floyd is also outstanding. Atom Heart Mother is excellent. Obscured By Clouds is great. The first two records, many of those early singles. Its more experimental, but a lot of it works. By Meddle they had the formula down, but the pre-Meddle stuff is super interesting because its totally uncompromising. Which is why I'd love to see this Nick Mason thing, cause its great music and it rarely gets appreciated these days.

THE WALL IS AN ABSOLUTELY GREAT PINK FLOYD ALBUM!!!!!

What are really NOT Pink Floyd albums are the one's released after Roger Waters left the band.
