    I went to see Roger Waters and his band at the Air Canada Centre last night.
    The tickets said 8 PM sharp but it was still the usual half-hour delay. Needless to say, the lateness of the show was no indicator of the great live performance the band put on.

    The Set List:

    In The Flesh
    Set Controls for the Heart of the Sun
    Shine on You Crazy Diamond (Pt. 1 Abridged)
    Have A Cigar
    Wish You Were Here
    (Some solo stuff)


    Speak to Me
    On the Run
    Great Gig in the Sky
    Us & Them
    Any Colour You Like
    Brain Damage
    Another Brick in the Wall (Pts. 1-2)
    Bring the Boys Back Home
    Comfortably Numb

    Roger came out rockin' with In the Flesh? and didn't look back. The whole show was overall very tight. Props included a blowup pig with glowing red eyes and writing such as "Impeach Bush" on its backside during their song "Sheep" off of their album "Animals". For the second set, they performed Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety, almost flawless with an amazing light/video show including a bit of pyro for good measure! The band included three guitar players, Three backup singers, two keyboardists, a sax player, three backup vocalists, a drummer, and Roger himself, which lent to a huge full sound.

    And they closed it off in style with Another Brick in the Wall (pt. 1+2) and Comfortably Numb. Great show!
