Pink Floyd is one of my favorite bands of all time, and was one of the groups that not only got me through high school but sent me firmly down the road of music collecting as I searched out rare pressings and bootlegs of everything they put out. And I am also a big fan of Roger Waters' solo work—I believe The Pros Ad Cons Of Hitchhiking
is terribly underrated and still listen to it frequently, and the original version of Radio KAOS
was much more interesting than what was eventually released (even if it is hampered by '80s production tricks and tropes)—so it seems unbelievable that I had never seen him perform live.*
Sunday night I finally righted that wrong and had amazing seats to see an amazing show. You can read my full review of it over on Chicagoist. It includes video of local singer Eddie Vedder joining Waters for "Comfortably Numb" that was a pleasant surprise but not even nearly the greatest thing about the show.
I shouldn't even need to say this, but if you get a chance to catch this tour you need to BUY TICKETS RIGHT NOW if you still can.*
I've never seen Pink Floyd either, but for some reason not having seen Waters has always bothered me more.
