Maybe the live running order was how the wanted it to be in the first place, but couldn’t do it because of the limited running time of a record side. The already opened with Raving and Drooling in 75.

I think it comes down to the pig. The big prop. It's a climax. The grand finale of the first set.

Maybe Rog wanted to let the audience know right at the start that they were just a bunch of sheep. :lol:
Well, didn’t he soon start creating a vision to build the wall between the band and the audience? :D

Ezrin has said that Waters showed him his sketch of the wall being built while they were in a limo driving through Hamilton, Ontario on their way to the final gig of the In the Flesh tour - in Montreal, the site of the infamous spitting incident. But if they played in NYC on July 4th, and Montreal on July 6th, why would they drive all the way around Lake Ontario when they could just drive North in half the time?

As early as in the middle of 1975, Roger began to create a vision of building a barrier between the band and a audience.

Roger Waters speaking after a show in Toronto on June 28, 1975:

''I found it all very unpleasant, un-nerving and uppseting '. During the tour Roger had an idea of building a wall across the stage, 'people can each other that there is no wall ...... between performer and audience, so I thought it would be good to build one out of black polystyrene or something '. However he didn’t follow through on the idea'.

They wanted to see Niagara Falls?
