To date, this is the best purchase I have ever made on Kalahari.net! I was a bit sceptical about a "Pink Floyd" concert with only Roger Waters - no Gilmour or Wright. BUT WOW! WHAT A SHOW!!! I was spellbound!

Is Pink Floyd really Pink Floyd without Roger Waters? Or is Roger Waters Pink Floyd? Who cares, this concert wouldn't have been better with the rest of the band, although it would look nicer on the title. This is a historic concert filmed a year after the fall of the Berlin Wall on site, the emotional significance of the concert to most the audience can be felt. Musically and visually this concert is the ultimate show. It has all the ingredients needed. This and Queen-Live at Wembley are compulsary collection fillers.
