i tried most of the day to get on Ticketmaster after hearing the concert announcement.i finally got through this afternoon,and all that was left were crap seats for 178 bucks plus taxes and everything else they throw at you.i like Gilmour alot but not going to fork out close to a grand for 4 tickets.im wondering why only 4 North American dates.

I heard today that there will be a second ACC show added on April first. No joke!

That's just great. A gazillion dollars to hear a dinosaur goin' through the motions. I'll pass thanks.

Tisk, tisk, why so negative. :wink:
I saw the last tour. Was not expecting much after all these years, but was more than pleasantly surprised. Especially impressive were his guitar chops. Easily more happenin than the last couple Floyd tours. I hear his son is a hippie Phish head. Maybe Gilmour's hangin around with a new crew of young rockers and feelin inspired.
Last tour was only a few years ago (or so it seems). And a much smaller venue at Massey Hall. I got first balcony for around a hundred fitty. Those were the days. :D :shock:
Pretty sure touring hasn't gotten that much more expensive since then. But if the last tour/bluray is any indication, the new tour might just be worth the high price of admission.

Yes that Massey Hall show (with Richard Wright, RIP) was incredible. Hard to believe the upcoming shows mark 10 years since!

Last night's show at ACC was incredible. Probably the best guitar performance I've ever seen! Even better than the show from last decade, complete with extended solos every song!
SQ was loud and super..

As a person approaching dinosaurhood, I suppose I am a little more willing to take a risk when it's an icon. Saw Roger Waters (weak voice) but still very good show, McCartney (same) Springsteen (same), so I should have been hesitant to go and see Gilmour but, so glad I went. Some dinosaurs are like apples ( only good for a while) others are like wine (better drink it before someone else does) or you'll miss out.

A friend of mine, who is a huge Springsteen fan, told me that on his more recent tours Bruce has indeed shown a significant reduction in the power and range of his voice. It happens to virtually everyone not named Tony Bennett sooner or later.

That is my usual spot, perhaps "weak" is a little too strong a term.

well,i caved and spent 1500 bucks for 4 of us to go last night.it was worth every penny.i figured since he just turned 70,he wont be back anytime soon,as he will be touring Europe through the summer and fall of this year.sound quality was amazing for the ACC,kudos to his sound engineer.it doesnt get any better than what i witnessed last night,brilliant performance from David and his band.

Ya, just going by what my friend Tony told me. I'm not a huge Springsteen fan, certainly appreciate his talent, but have never seen him live. I know his concerts used to be legendary, sometimes approaching four hours in length at high energy levels with no breaks.

Probably more a case of perspective than anything else, or an off night. Everyone, including Springsteen, can have an off night.

Yes, I have no talent, apparently except for pissing off Bruce fans. Love his music.
