2.0 star rating David from San Francisco, California


Production values are great but it all feels a bit preachy and also out of touch/hypocritical (i.e. RW is worth 300 million and lives, among other venues, in a 7000 square-foot Manhattan penthouse. The truly incredible media screen was devoted to preaching on every social justice topic you can conjure, moving regrettably into cliche territory (one point even criticizing the Roman Empire!) As I said it feels like a bit of a shtick: I do think he believes what he’s selling but it’s oversimplified in some ways, and delivered as a cudgel that left even us liberal, devoted PF/Waters fans, exhausted. You can sense that his heart is in it and he believes in the messaging, but there’s an underlying sense of indulgence/narcissism that is undeniable and uncomfortable. He’s been a rock star for 60 years, and it felt like he’s perhaps not as tuned in to nuanced reality as many of his audience (and band) members.

All the good lost when the thump of the bass (and lesser extent drums) distorts the speakers. Far too loud/ overpowered the mix for most songs.

2.0 star rating Roger Thomason from Phoenix, Arizona


The sound mix could have been better... too much bass and distorted. It was also too loud for the venue. The Sound Effects were more like sound torture. Also I like to leave behind the severe problems we are facing in our Country and the rest of the world. This includes politics.. when I seek live entertainment I would rather not be reminded visually and musically of the problems and injustices in life for so many. Every song played were layered with visions of oppression, war, injustices.... A song or two with visual dystopian nightmares layered on thick would be acceptable. But slamming that apocalyptic viewpoint for the whole show was unfathomable and not very enjoyable.

2.0 star rating Michael from Dallas, Texas


Love Pink Floyd. The Roger Waters concert is depressing since many of the words & images are so negative. A lot of hate with no real focus on solutions like love one another or get involved. Maybe capitalism has it's faults but shirts and sweatshirts were $50-$100. Who benefits there? The sound quality was terrible. . Huge bass at high volume throughout the concert. Love bass but it was too much. Many of the song's words were barely understandable. Roger Waters needs to let go of his hate, perhaps get some therapy, and use his stage to promote coming together and positive solutions. Suggest re-look at the cost of t shirts for his fans. They love Pink Floyd and Roger Waters and they are being ripped off. Still the lines were huge to buy. Lastly why is it that a 8:00 concert starts at 8:30? Found out being a half hour late happens at every concert. Shows no respect for his audience.

1.0 star rating Badly disappointed from Detroit, Michigan


From one of the biggest Pink Floyd fans my entire life. I will never pay money to support Pink Floyd or especially Roger Waters ever again. Roger Waters turned some of the best music in the world into the worst far left radical political show I've ever been to. Biggest waste of money ever, I would wait to see David Gilmore if he ever comes.

1.0 star rating from Cincinnati, Ohio


I went to the show with a buddy who also has been a PF fan forever. Everyone expects a little politics from these people whether qualified or not. This show was anti American, anti capitalist and as far left as anything I have ever seen. The beauty of PINK FLOYD music was lost in his hatred and disgust of just about everything. I can now understand why the band “excused” him in 1985. It is difficult to understand a man who benefitted from American and worldwide capitalism is such a hypocrite about it in public. He’s an old man trying to stay relevant and is willing to do or say anything to try to achieve it. We left after the first song in the second act. It wasn’t art. It was hypocrisy. PF left him and he’s on his fifth wife. Makes sense! Waste of our time and money in Cincinnati.

1.0 star rating August West from Ohio


PF has a history of rich iconic music with a an underlying political theme. I was excited to finally see the performance live. What a disappointment. The music was just okay and played second fiddle to Roger Waters political beliefs. Those beliefs took center stage and were larger than the music. The theme: America is horrible, conservative political thought is horrible, christians are horrible, and leave if you don't agree. If you fall under any of those categories save your money and stay home. PF lost a fan that night.
