Madison Square Garden
I love me some Floyd man, but I never saw them in concert as ‘Pink Floyd’… and I never will (doesn’t help that most of the band are dead and the ones that are alive basically hate each other). I was always on team Roger Waters, and was blessed to have seen him 4 times in the past decade – twice for his Dark Side of The Moon tour and twice for his The Wall rebuilding. Somehow I didn’t give David Gilmour the Gilmour guy love that I should have given him – I mean, this is THE fcuking guitarist for Pink Floyd!!!
The last time Gilmy was in the states was briefly in 2006, and before that even more breiflyerer in 1988, so I didn’t have many chances to jump at something I wasn’t exactly jumping for. But ever since I saw Waters, I was like man, I really should see Gilmour, before he or I die, and boom – Gilmour came to the states to support a (decent) new album, stopping by 4 cities only in North America, and boom – here we are
And so? Dude, David Gilmour is THE fcuking guitarist for Pink Floyd – perhaps the most guitaristishy band the world has ever known. And dude, David Gilmour can SHRED that fcuking guitar, man – creating soundscapes that CANNOT be escaped from. I mean, dude, why weren’t you there? I WISH YOU WERE THERE!!!! with me!!!!
Gilmy played new songs, he played Floyd songs, he played BS Floyd songs from the time where Pink Floyd was basically juss him, but whatever he played, it blew my ears, and my penis, and my mind, and your mind, even though you weren’t there. Man, I truly wish you were there
If you weren’t there, I bet you wish you were there, and I wish I could say that there’ll be many more times he’ll come back and be here, but I think that’s juss well wishing, for wishes that may never come true again. Oh well
