Looks like tickets go $51-77-$101 at the closest theater to me.

Kind of on the fence, but feel like I should go. But I don't know, won't it feel more like a cover band with just Nick on drums? I didn't feel that way with Roger's or Dave's tours because of their singing and playing, but with Nick...I guess Guy Pratt is a Floyd member if you look at it that way. I saw one of the Floyd cover bands once, think it was either Brit Floyd or Australian Pink Floyd and I wasn't really into it. This is different with Nick...but is it?

Anyone going? Thoughts?

This did catch my eye, think it would be cool, believe the Pabst Theatre, Milwaukee is closest to me, awesome place. Oh to be a paid music and food critic!!!....Go for meals and shows, get paid, then gripe about how it could been so much better!!! .........Peace........joe

Seriously considering the 3/31 St. Louis show.

The setlist is fascinating. I'm not sure the expectations would be the same on an evening of all early Floyd. You have to do Shine On You Crazy Diamond or Comfortably Numb at an arena or stadium, of course, but Lucifer Sam or Arnold Layne? Sounds like a lot of fun.

There's Mason and Pratt (one of the best around) plus Gary Kemp from Spandau Ballet on lead guitar. The UK reviews from back in September are pretty good, it sounds like at least an interesting evening.

At this point in history, where else you gonna hear A Saucerful of Secrets live?

True. If I'm going to hear anyone play it, probably shouldn't pass up the chance of Nick playing it. Hearing Obscured By Clouds > When You're In would be a highlight. As would IO > AD. Other than that I'm not a fan of alot of the Piper songs, but plenty of stuff like you say that Dave and Roger don't play that fans would love to hear. And we'll get to hear Nick sing his one lyric again!

I thought this tour sounded cool. Wish that the Michigan date wasn't on a Tuesday
