5.0 out of 5 stars Great Concert, July 28, 2000

This review is from: The Wall-Live in Berlin [VHS] (VHS Tape)
True there are some faults with this show, but come on folks, this was one great concert. Read the reviews and you will see how many people contradict one another. The only problem I had was Sinead was barely audible when singing "Mother". Members of "The Band" singing the mother's part was good. Roger in concert 7-13-00 at the Garden sings his part and has the female vocalists sing the mother's part. I like to hear good artists doing other people's music. The fact that so many major acts of that time showed up, shows the respect that Roger Waters gets in the music industry. I feel that they stayed as true to the music as possible. His band, The Bleeding Heart Band can play this piece as well as Pink Floyd did. Rick Difonzo plays his guitar almost exactly like Mr. Gilmour. Mr. Waters still has some of these great musicians in his band today like Graham Broad, Andy Fairweather Low and Snowy White. Rent the video and if you don't like it then you don't know a classic show even if it bites you on your behind. The Scorpions did an excellent job with "In the Flesh" both parts and I'm not a Scorpions fan. Van Morrison did a very soulful version of "Comfortably Numb". The Orchestra was superb, they probably never preformed in front of such a large audience. Any one who claims to be a Waters fan or a Pink Floyd fan should enjoy this CD and the video. I wish this would be released on DVD, then you have the best of both worlds. Any chance to see Roger Waters in concert no matter what band he has or music he chooses to perform should jump at the chance. This concert was an historical event and is a must for any collector of live shows.
