    Another Brick in the Wall

    I know we have a lot of music fans on here.
    Has anyone else watched Roger Waters' "The Wall" movie.
    Being a Pink Floyd fan I have enjoyed the soundtrack for many decades but this was the first time that I had seen 'the movie'.
    I was absolutely blown away. I don't think I have ever seen a "music video/movie" as clever, accomplished, moving and spectacular as this.
    It must have been an absolute mind-blower for the fans lucky enough to attend a performance. Certainly the shots of the audience indicate that they were totally caught up in the performance.
    The album was always a work of genius but this movie production really lifts the whole thing into a different dimension.
    Absolutely fantastic.

    Absolutely amazing! A must see for any Floyd fan!

    Roger Waters is coming through here shortly on his US+THEM tour which he's proclaiming to be his last ever tour. I'd LOVE to see him again but given the crazy high prices for any decent seats I don't see that happening. :\

    Yeah i watched it on SBS? Maybe the other night so should be on catchup or whatever they call it. Ive watched the original many many times and it was interesting see this interpretation. The duet he did with himself was a cool touch

    I'd forgotten about the 1982 Movie. Don't know if I have even seen it. I am going to buy the Roger Waters one so may as well buy the other one too.
    Waters is one of a handful of genuine music geniuses and it would be great to see his tour. I will keep an eye out for it. The price for the seats doesn't bother me, it's the hassle of transport and accommodation for us country kids.
    Brisbane is a pain as the Entertainment Centre is out in the boonies.

    I watched it on their catch up, but it can vary how long they stay available for.

    If this is considered hijacking the thread, I apologize. I was thinking about starting a new thread about music performances that play like a good cup of coffee, taking you for a joyous ride with the same mix of suspense, surprise, and well known warm feelings. As a thread like that would probably sink like a rock, and since I've now got this performance stuck in my head, I'll post it here, as it's got some connection to the topic. Here's David Gilmore playing a Pink Floyd song (though from a time without Waters) in quite a different setting. I like it a lot!
