My wife and I saw The Wall in Columbus back in October. Our seats were not the greatest, upper level and one of the props (the "scorpion wife" doll) was blocking part of the round screen behind the band. As our luck would have it, my wife ran to the bathroom right after Mother, she bumps into a ticket person who asked if she wanted her tickets upgraded. She said, umm, YES! Ran up, got me, and we ended up down on the floor, center stage, right by the mixing booth! The following week a friend and I saw it again in the Twin Cities. Our seats were right across/kind of behind where the hotel room drops out of the wall and Roger sings, I got a little black book with my poems in . . . I've seen Pink Floyd, David Gilmour, and Roger so many times and it never gets old. No matter what incarnation of the band. David's "On An Island" tour was awesome back in 2006. He is The Man.
With that said, nicneufeld, I'm surprised to see you mention Mark Knopfler. A lot of people look baffled when I mention him as one of my favorite guitarist, though, they know Dire Straits. We've seen every one of his concerts since he's went solo and he only gets better with age. A couple years ago, 2008 I think, we saw him at Red Rocks in Morrison. That was totally amazing. And a couple nights later, or maybe before, we saw Alison Krauss and Robert Plant at Red Rocks as well. Talk about an old guy who can still belt out the vocals!
