A man after my own heart

Best gig of my life was 2 visits to the Pulse gig at Earls Court in 94, loved it!

Had the best of both worlds as 1st gig was 4 rows from the front, in front of David Gilmour, and the 2nd gig (2 days later) was right at the back up on the Circle so got full benefit of the lazers and flying, crashing planes, the pigs, the crystal chandelier at the end ..... oh the lot!

Loved it!

Only time I ever see them, but have spent many a night crashed in the sofa after a good listening! ........ oh the odd beer and funny fag too ...

They'd better follow it up with a concert in oz then!!

My father was a floyd freak. I listened to floyd every single day of my life starting from birth until they day I moved out of home. (Then I still listened on my own because it had been drilled into me!)

I've seen them four times at Wembley, London arena and twice at Earls Court.

I'd have a seizure if they played a gig and I missed it, especially as I've never seen them play with Gilmour.

and mine!

Managed to get to The Division Bell tour 2 and a teeny bit times in 1994.

Once at Foxboro in MA.
Once in Earls Court.

and a teeny bit (approx 30 seconds) at the Earls Court gig when the seating collapsed and the concert was stopped.

We heard a cymbal like crash, our seats started to wobble like a roller coster and we all went "wheyyyyyy!, what will they think of next? Moving seats! Brillant!"

Well, how were we to know?

*edit* Foxboro did it for me. A low cloud and rain storm came in at the end of the gig which just enhanced the lighting.
