Will Roger Water’s Live Concert From Prague Play On The Big Screen In The Hub City?
The rocker from Pink Floyd is cheekily announcing it as "from his first-ever farewell tour".
I'm going to come right out and say it, this is probably your last chance to see Pink Floyd's music performed live. I reviewed a sample setlist, and it's just amazing to look at. Surprisingly the songs from the epic "The Wall", in most cases, are not performed consecutively.
Water's show is a career retrospective featuring tons of songs from the aforementioned "The Wall", plus plenty from "Dark Side Of The Moon", and "Wish You Were Here" with a few odds and ends thrown in. It doesn't appear he does anything from "Animals", but the flying pig, or a version of it, from that tour does make an appearance.
Waters will be bringing some version of the show "This Is Not A Drill" live From Prague" on May 25th live to theaters. I was completely unable at this time to find
Tickets on sale on April 25th, and it will be shown at "over 1500 theaters", but I can't find any local listings yet. The actual concert will happen on May 25th.
I am hoping that one of our locals finds this an enticing opportunity. I don't believe they had any problems selling tickets to the Metallica album debut, so you'd think a full show from the Pink Floyd founder would also do well.
Consider this post "Not A Drill" but a chance for you to visit the film's site and get signed up for updates so that you'll know if it is coming to our local area.
