Yes Roger, I can now see where you were coming from all those years ago.
'I'm alright, keep your hands off of my stack'......did I really see a figure near £250 for a Hyde Park ticket?
It seems to be in vogue now to charge the punters huge fees if they want a decent view of the concert nowadays.
It seems to be getting slightly 'corporate'!
I actually find this outrageous especially when he once penned a song for those 'at the rough end of monetarism' or something? I certainly remember him using that phrase.

Needless to say, I will not be going to Hyde Park. You can shove that where it doesn't shine Roger.
Don't forget that Hyde park isn't his show - he is just headlining it along with 4 or 5 other artists on the main stage plus a secondary stage of artists doing their thing. There is also other entertainment going on throughout the day. General admission is £70 and Gold circle which is close to the stage is £129 - not too extortionate for a whole day.

That's one thing about Roger tho, I was at his show yesterday and he blames occident, he blames money, during ''Dogs'' he imitate rich people behaviors.

But that very same guy is in the 0,0001% of the wealthiest people alive.

Me too - Friday gig. I'd already paid out on one of the pre-sales for the Friday gig when the Saturday gig was announced on the morning of the general sale. I would've preferred the Saturday, but what the hell! Also considered Hyde Park, but I'm not sure that the he'll be using the whole stage set-up so I'll give it a miss.

Lucky sod. I'll be Hyde Park Gold Circle in the company of a couple of erstwhile NPF'ers. Will be going to see old Robin Dublin too.

Friend (local boy), and his Dublin nurse gf are going there too.
Glad you are on the move with the Floyd related gigs again Bren. :)
