A non-Roman post

Not my normal type of post, but the concert I went to last night was so amazing, that I feel the need to mention it. Pink Floyd’s The Wall hadn’t been performed for over 29 years in London – until 2 nights ago. Yesterday evening was the second performance of four at The O2 arena in east London, and I lucked onto a ticket when a friend unexpectedly had a spare. If you like Pink Floyd’s music, then you’d love the show. The stage features a massive wall of bricks that is built up during the performance, and against which images and film of the original movie, plus lots of other dramatic pictures are shot. It was a quite incredible experience. If you get a change to go to the show, do so! Or when the live DVD comes out, splash out on a copy. Tremendous stuff.

    I remember when Roger Waters performed this at the Brandenburg Gate after the fall of the Berlin Wall – and even more emotionally watching the original film in Sale, Manchester with my first serious girlfriend when we were the only two people in for the late night showing. In the film Bob Geldof is remarkably good as Pink!

    @Paul: didn’t see it in ’89 in Berlin, even though I loved the music at that time. I haven’t ever seen the film – I don’t know why. Bob Geldof being in it is even more reason for me to want to see it. No excuse really!
