Roger Waters really puts a lot of effort into the show and he sounds as good as he did on the original album. We were hoping Dave Gilmour might put in an appearance but as he’d already played in London it wasn’t to be.
The only downside for us was the Lucy and I were standing and the majority of the crowd were falling over drunk, smoking, spitting, snogging and doing anything except paying any attention to the concert. I really don’t know why they went. These weren’t young people either, they were middle aged. To be honest it’s the worst crowd I’ve seen at a concert, they were very intimidating.
We stayed at The Gibson Hotel and had the rooms booked since last year. They made a mess up though and we had to wait a while for the rooms to be sorted and be near each other. They also gave us an early morning wake up call at 7.30am which I didn’t ask for! So much for a relaxing morning. Then we realised Lucy left her headphones in the hotel room so I phoned to ask if they had found them. They called the following day and said they would post them back but are charging for postage! I think that’s mean to be honest. We’ve stayed there before and have dates booked again. I have no idea how much they are going to charge me for postage.
Apart from all that, we had a lovely time.
