Back in 1990, Roger Waters put on a show in Berlin. Not just a "concert", but the single most epic piece of musical showmanship I've ever seen.I can't fathom the logistics to pull something like this off. Especially a quarter century ago.The stage was what.. a mile wide? Complete with a convoy of military vehicles going across stage, audience participation, an all star cast... it has it all.Except the video quality we've come to expect now days. Here's part one of the video: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xjy3n7_roger-waters-the-wall-live-in-berlin-1990-part-1-of-2_musicHere's the DVD album cover. This is my single most prized of all DVDs I own.
So on your suggestion I picked it up. I am watching it now, almost finished. I am working from home and have it on, so I am not watching it closely, but it is an amazing concert! Old school 4:3 video format, but that is about all I'd knock. There is a lot of cameos aren't there? I even think Bryan Adams plays at one point. I like the guy who leads the backup vocals on Comfortably Numb, that is an interesting harmony. Just looked it up, that was Van Morrison. I thought I recognized the voice, but didn't recognize the person. And yeah they had a massive guest list of tons of actors and singers/musicians of the day. I wasn't paying close enough attention but I did think I saw Sinead O'Connor.
Ok, so now I'm all excited about this DVD again. I did a little digging. Seems the "staging" of the event costs $10,000,000 to build. Read: http://www.rogerwaters.org/about_berlin.html
