Final post on The Wall

Time to wrap up this series on Roger Waters performing The Wall Live last week. I can’t get the show out of my head even though a week has almost past, but I will put those of you who couldn’t care less out of your misery with today’s final post on the topic. Tomorrow we will be back to our regularly scheduled program.

I will end this with a video I took of “In The Flesh.” Notice the flying pig. Also take note of Roger pointing at me when he says “There’s one smoking a joint… and that one’s got spots!”. Speaking of pot, I haven’t seen so much weed at a concert since the 1980s. With the decriminalization of marijuana in California, (many people have cards and even those without are only charged with a misdemeanor for a first offense) there was no search upon entry and security didn’t seem to care that people were openly getting high all over the place.

Another interesting turn of events is that not only were cameras tolerated (as they usually are these days), but an announcement was made just prior to the show to turn off your flash while taking pictures.

And finally, speaking of the pre-show, the warm up songs were some old Neil Young tunes and John Lennon’s “Imagine”. Lennon was killed just a few hours shy of 30 years to when this performance of The Wall took place.
