Might like to go to the show." ( The Wall, In The Flesh?)
Mr Waters knows how to give a concert an impressive opening. He did so Saturday night at an open air concert in Lichtenvoorde, a rural place in Holland near the German border. My nephew Lammert, my sister's son, and I were among several thousands of lucky ones to attend. It was an open air festival with several other big names like Ray Davies, Deep Purple and Def Leppard.

Those who have seen Waters's In The Flesh concert will know what to expect, because the line-up was very similar.
What was different was the choice of repertoire. It seems Roger Waters refused to play much of the old Pink Floyd repertoire after he left the group. Here we saw a radical change of direction: the majority of the songs were good old Pink Floyd material. Crowning it all was an integral performance of the Dark Side Of The Moon, played while behind us a real, huge full moon rose from between the trees - and that was not a special effect!
My distance to the stage was too far to even consider taking photos, but our dear friend Renate has quite a few on her blog, along with a really good review of the concert, and a link to more photos!
