Pigs On The Wing!

Time to get out a bigger umbrella. Pigs apparently can fly!

Roger Waters is re-joining Pink Floyd to play the Live 8 concert on July 2nd at Hyde Park in the UK.

Or as a friend of mine aptly quoted:

"Pink is NOW well, he's come back from the hotel
don't need to send along, a surrogate band
you fans are going to get  just a one night stand!"

I saw Pink Floyd in concert back when they were doing the Division Bell tour. I saw them in Minneapolis and at Soldier Field. The Soldier Field concert was awesome. It was raining but the rain fit in so well in two places.

It was a nice slow drizzle during "Wish You Were Here". The rain hitting the laser show made it look like it was raining diamonds. Very neat.

The coolest part of the rain during that show was during "One of These Days". I remember that it was more than a drizzle during most of that song. However, when all hell breaks loose during that track they opened up two rather large pig-like things on either side of the stage that had spotlights for eyes. At that same exact moment, it started to pour! Screaming Guitar! Screaming Fans! Pouring Rain! It was a life defining moment I can go so far as calling it that.

Oh, how I wish I could be there. Bummer that I'm working that week and I'm OnCall too! I guess that I'll just have to annoy my wife by putting on some Floyd really loud.
