He's Coming Back

Roger Waters is coming back to town!
And I’ll be there. I have already acquired tickets through a friend who receives privileged pre-release date ticket options. His employer emailed him a page about the upcoming Rogers Waters concert in my city, and just as he was about to delete the thing, having no personal interest whatsoever…. he recalled that I had gone to see Waters in Montreal last September.
Do any of you also recall?

I went on and on about it, back then, hyper blog-ventilating of my love for Roger Waters’ music, but I never ever really did do a good review of the show.
This time I will not be so….. silent!
I will tell all!
I will give you a set list!
Tell you of every epiphanic moment.

So, thanks to my good friend, I did not have to sit on the phone for half a year, trying to get tickets during my own work day. No, this was effortless. All I had to do was respond to the email and say, “YES! NAB ME TWO TICKETS! DO IT! DO IT!”

And he did.
My fee? A measly $317.
A small price to pay to see Waters and his insanely talented assemblage of studio musicians.

For those of you who may not know who he is, [which constitutes a form of musical blasphemy I myself cannot imagine committing], Roger Waters is the creative genius behind the legendary group, Pink Floyd.
So it is that I will be at yet another Roger Waters concert in my lifetime.
That is, if I live until Monday, June 4th, 2007.

Check out the following tour schedule. Perhaps he is coming to a stadium near you?
If so……..
