If you catch it just at the right time you can hear the concert from 1974 with the original show video screen footage.

I might add Brilliant! 

 

Check it out.

The first time I ever heard 'Dark Side of the Moon' was at a Pink Floyd concert at the Waterbury Palace Theatre in Waterbury CT, during their first US tour of the album. They encored with 'oldies' like 'Set Your Controls for the Heart of the Sun'. All in quadrophonic sound. Three hours of live Pink Floyd. Stunning.

Ah, last night on breaks from working on a huge frakking case file swallowing my life... I took advantage of this nostalgia and checked it out...holy mindblowing flashbacks....I saw them with my cousin as one of my first concert experiences...first was Freddie Mercury right in my face on that long stage extension..where he danced in white....then Genesis and Pink Floyd. Damn hippies. they become Lawyers, doctors, and techies when they grow up, but they still play sing and jam....aint that the way it should be..?  I love me some chig.

@Photo...oh hi kid, btw. I hope youre hanging in there..got to..dont give up the fight

OH dear, I WISH there had been a concert with all 3 of those bands. Nope, I had a WAY older cousin in college who took me to my first concerts from about age 12, REALLY young because I was so into music and performing,, he was the only one who really supported and pushed me into doing it all...exposing me to all the BAD stuff...Queen was my first concert, then Genesis, the Pink Floyd...then it never stopped...

..ps I consider Mike Myers to be a comical genius and a twisted writer.  He's got so many characters...Wayne and Garth were SO cute, looking back... be well brutha.

Sorry the Floyd "Greatest Gig in the Sky" did not continue playing the next day.   I actually hit the Best Buy (cheapest place selling) The immersion box set of which one disk is what was playing on Youtube as "Greatest Gig in the SKy".   I had taped all those old Pink Floyd concert films off USA Night Flight in the '80s.   They were awesome videos to go with the music.   Now with the releases of the box sets, more people can experience them.

Somewhere I have a DVD set of Bizzarre.   A very very young Mike Myers showed up on stage with John Byner.   I

I saw them sans Waters when I was 19. It hurt that he wasn't there but they were still so awesome. I'm putting this on my list of stuff to check out,..right after TG's butt.

Pink Floyd = perfection!!! My musical development arrested somewhere around 1974.

 

Thanks!

Well, a friend of mine had found the flv just before they deleted it, but managed to get everything but the last two songs.  Anyhow, it is possible to relive the experience, mostly.

@ThatGirl, sorry for the misunderstanding, and thank you for the kind words. Pain and fatigue are the current life-sapping foes, but we will persevere :)

You are so lucky to get an early start on your musical education. I did get to see most of my favorite performers, but started in my 20's. I saw Queen with Mott the Hoople, (Mott's name always made my Dad laugh lol). Mott was the headlining act, it was Queen's first U.S. tour, and they did a one hour blistering set! Their song 'Keep Yourself Alive" was their hit off of their first album. Mott was tremendous also, I love Ian Hunter's voice. I never did get to see Genesis unfortunately. Enjoying reminiscing with ya!
