Ok ... that was the most incredible thing I've ever seen... well close enough.. and Dave was not only singing great.. but playing exceptional. Roger looked like he was having the time of his life... but what was up with them not showing Rick at all????

I'm crying as I type.. I had chill bumps all the way thru, but if I could blow up MTV I would right now.. because their frigging vjs came on to tell a stupid story right in the middle of Comfortably Numb and then cut out to a commercial right in the middle of David's solo.... that is absolutely unforgiveable!!!!!!!!

I hope someone gets this as a download soon so I can see the rest of it!!!!

Dear TF, I make your words mine, allthough we were lucky here in Brazil since we got an uncut and pretty clean image and sound during the whole performance...and what a performance ! ! ! Pink Foyd is Sheer MAGIC ! ! !

I think Roger said something about Syd Barrett at the beginning of "Wish You Were Here", I couldn't quite make it out though.

Except the laid back "interlude" in Money ... but on the whole, they were all amazing.

He said something to the effect of, they are playing this song for all tht people that aren't here, but esp. for Syd.

At least thats what i got.

Roger said how it was quite emotional to be on a stage with 'these three guys' (arm motion to the rest of the band) and dedicated the song to all the people who could not be there but 'especially Syd'.

Lump in the throat time for me....

What a fantastic show they gave to us. When they played Money, I was shocked. That song was not on the playlist for the show.

Excellent show, an hour or two more would have been nice tho. Roger really looked like he was enjoying himself up there, it was great to see. I hope this means the band is on good terms, because they looked as if they were getting along.

I was watching the internet broadcast, and in the middle of comfortably numb it came on the tv, so i started watching that..AND THEY CUT OUT AFTER MONEY! Only an american tv network would cut a god damn FLOYD REUNION half short. That really chapped my ass. I hope i can find the video because i want to see the rest of comfortably numb.

Nah, Nick was Nick. The Floyd's music isn't about crazy time signatures. Nick doesn't standout, but he's never been "crap".

They rocked!
Great show, would rock even more if it was longer though...

btw, NRK(the norwegian channel I watched it on) did NOT interupt with commercials of anything like that.

o ya, nick was good, and he never was jaw dropping but he is much better live, and they didnt exactly pick songs for him to go crazy on like he does with carefull with that axe or echoes.

but yes, he did do good, very mellow like the rest of the music

Nick did get a bit carried away at one point and stumbled all over Gilmore's guitar solo with some unecessary fills on Comfortably Numb,but other than that did fine.Great show by Floyd although Waters voice is now totally 'shot' ..old age taking its toll.
