I don't have to listen to the album. I wouldn't say what Rog says above either way. It's not just tact, it's the whole thought process that leads to 'what is wrong with you'.

I've never thought of him that way before - seen him twice and enjoyed both shows (more than I thought I would), but now I feel I've been deceived and defrauded. I'm a victim! I want my money back! No more wall building!

I can appreciate the sarcasm but I never said it was fraud. I said it was lame entertainment. I said it makes me doubt his sincerity. Those Wall and Animals lyrics...in hindsight it all just seems like obvious pandering. Pandering to his 1970s rock and roll audience. Run Like Hell sounds more and more like the real Roger Waters coming through. He is the biggest brick in the Wall.

^^^ More seriously, I pretty much agree with you. How many times can one wrap and re-wrap the same old music in yet another presentation of adolescent angst? Personally, I suspect - cynic that I am - that most of that angst is just part of the show anyway. And the obvious answer, I suppose, is: For as long as the punters will pony up.

The shows are a spectacle, he keeps the memories alive for those of a certain age, and introduces the music to those who are younger. I can't think of anything else positive to say about Roger Waters these days.

At least Rog has a new album to tour and is devoting a good chunk of the concert to it. Same for Dave w/ RtL last time he was touring. There are bands touring who pretty much don't play anything released in the last two decades.

Us + Them to be issued for purchase on 2nd October 2020 ... the 4K UHD version is available to watch now on PrimeVideo now but ironically only 'standard' Blu-ray and DVD are to be issued for purchase.

So I have seen two different versions of this. One finishes with Brain Damage/Eclipse and the other finishes with Mother and Comfortably Numb
