Welcome to the Live Archive, where Andy (aka Concert Boy) regales you with a recap of one of his many concert experiences through the years. Feel free to review his overall list and make a request for a future Live Archive post.

THE ACT: Roger Waters

THE SCENE: Tweeter Center in Mansfield, MA - outdoor pavilion & lawn seating (09/06/2006)

Roger Waters was one of the principle songwriters and creative forces of Pink Floyd. He went solo after he left in 1984 while David Gilmour carried on with the Pink Floyd name.

I was more of a Waters fan and was not interested in the post Waters albums and tours of the late 80s and early 90s.

I saw Waters in 1987 on the Radio KAOS tour and it’s one of my favorite shows. I saw him again in 2006 when he toured and played the Dark Side of The Moon. The first set was comprised of Pink Floyd classics and assorted songs from Waters’ solo catalog. The second set was the entire Dark Side of the Moon and the encore was all songs from The Wall.

The show was great and the band was incredible. Go and catch Roger Waters this year when he tours The Wall.

    I HEART Roger. I saw the Radio KAOS tour (front row!) in Indianapolis and nearly had heart failure from the excitement. Now, if only I could have seen the tour for Pros and Cons...with Clapton...my life would be complete.
