I was so happy when I saw the Waters' Tour announcement!
The Wall! what an event! So I prebook the date for next year.It was before I saw that:
So, Mr Waters, do you really think that all we are in switzerland, abble to pay such prices?
Do you think you are so good that you can ask a 700 euros for the Vip package???
Hopefully the parking ticket is included in this price.First levels stars at 215 euros, so teh price of the PG Vip package.
Oh just one thing, some long years ago, as real fans, we were standing some few hours before doors opening, in order to be the closest possible of the stage. So now, for that, you don't need to spent time.just need to have more money than the others.BEURK = = =
Do I need to say that I won't go to see Mr Waters.?

I'm a fan of Floyd and the Wall but I have to say I thought the same, the ticket prices are crazy. Firstly I am one of those on the Gilmour side of the fence so would be more excited if he was doing a Floyd show (even though I admit the Wall is a Waters album) and secondly you can go and see the Australian Pink Floyd play the album note perfect and with 80% of the visuals for a fraction of the price - go see them instead.

With the collapse of the conventional music publishing biz, the main way artists are able to make money is through live shows, VIP package deals, erchandise and even cruises (I think John Prine recently held a cruise for fans.)
This is why I can only afford to see PG and no one else.
My sympathies, Krikri. Hopefully, artists will figure out a way around the current trend of ramping up ticket prices to three or four figures.
Hell, imagine how much money Waters could get for selling his sperm? :-]

I'm sure it will be a very cool event.But anway, first it is totally out of my budget and second, this are price rates of capricious divas , even if I would have enough money for that, I shall not pay in the similar price. Waters or not Waters ,his most cheaper rate is the most expensive PG's rate. When has to speak about artistic qualities, I think that PG has nothing to envy him Totally excessive!!!!
Mr Waters, don't you have an ego problem????
ciao, hasta la vista.I'm sure that I can survive ewithout the Wall!!!

So I'm curious for those who have attended all the below tours, which one was the most affordable?
The last Waters / or / Glimour show
The last Genesis tour
The last PG tour
Out of the above, I've only been able to see the last Genesis tour which was mighty pricey itself. But Waters current show looks like it takes the cake, cost-wise. Whatever it costs in euros pretty much doubles in U.S. monopoly $. =

There have been many Wall tours, so you probably aren;t missing much that hasn;t already been done. Isn't the one Waters did at the Wall in Berlin on DVD?
Also, this RW tour may come out DVD. You never know.

The only The Wall DVD I'd like to be released is the one from the 1980-81, but Roger seems unwilling to release it.
However, he gave a clue recently in an interview to Mojo Magazine saying he found a whole load of previously unknown footage from those shows and "has been busy editing it". Let's hope it's not another false alarm. . .
no there have NOT been many wall tours - Floyd only did a handful (3) and yes RW did the Berlin show
The Wall tour (in support of the album) originally ran through 1980, in Los Angeles, New York, and Earl's Court (London) (the nature of the material, and the scale of the stage production, prohibited a large-scale tour). When the movie was green-lighted, Pink Floyd performed five more shows at Earl's Court, which were filmed with the intention of being incorporated into the movie but the resulting footage was deemed unsuitable for use. Over the years, numerous suggestions have been made that this footage could be used to make a concert film, but Roger Waters, who owns all rights to the footage, has been working on remastering the concerts off and on in recent years
This show is extremly comlpicated to produce - I shall attend.
