Aussie Floyd... just a few short months ago
Might have been March this year? I've tried to forget it to be honest.

I was never a Pink Floyd fan or listened to Dark Side of the Moon *awaits flaming and the usual 'best album ever' comments by the people who pretend to like them* but my mate had 2 tickets, said he'd seen them last year at a mini festival and they were great. Always up for something free, don't get out much in my advancing years.

2 pints outside Newcastle City Hall and a smoke too for old times sake.

If anyone on here reads this and was at that gig - It was me snoring 25mins in, right hand side, half way towards the front - isle seat. I fell asleep. It was horrendous. Some tramp on stage playing keyboards in a cowboy hat, no-one in the audience seemed interested, all sat down in cramped, seats with zero atmosphere as they rambled thru self indulgent track after another. It was torture. And then, an massive inflatable mouse appeared at the end - possibly Kangaroo being Aussie's - for no reason.

Maybe i'm not a floyd fan. or a sitting down for gigs fan. Either way, it sucked hard - and i saw the Pet Shop Boys do the alternative soundtrack for Battleship Potemkin at Swan Hunters Yard.

Pink Floyd should be illegal.
Tribute acts should be illegal.
Sitting down gigs should be illegal unless you're in a proper concert hall.

I should be king.

Pink Floyd are like Brussel’s Sprout’s. Nobody actually likes them, they just say they do because they think it makes them look unusual and interesting.

I like Pink Floyd & Sprouts
From the Syd Barrett early days through to the Final Cut but not the later Floyd though that's shit

Meddle is a work of genius. 'Dark side' on headphones really bloody loud.... epic

Sprouts with bacon and white wine butter shed loads of black pepper...epic

All gigs should at least have one area for those of us who want to sit down.
When I saw Steven Segal in St Albans, I had a balcony seat, and so was free to sit or stand as I saw fit, with no impediment to my view of the proceedings. Best gig ever, so far as I'm concerned.

"and i saw the Pet Shop Boys do the alternative soundtrack for Battleship Potemkin "
I read that in the voice of a "YOU WEREN'T THERE MAN!" Vietnam vet.

It sounded a bit to me like:
The blade-runner ending soliloquy.
