I saw Pink Floyd at Arrowhead in the 90's. I was on the ground level about 3/4 of the way back from the stage and there was this drunk chick next to me who was all over me while her boyfriend was passed out next to her. Good times...good times.

Arrowhead in 87, and Texas Stadium in 92-93, somewhere in there. The Arrowhead show was the better of the two, however.

Wow. Small world. Had to be the same concert because I'm pretty sure it's the only time they've been to central Iowa in a long time.

I remember being pretty unimpressed. I was pretty messed up, but I've been to a lot of other concerts that I enjoyed in that condition. I think I was too busy trying to score acid to really enjoy myself.

Ames was the only time I saw them, though I tried desparately to get tickets to The Wall a few decades ago.

I don't think Pink Floyd "live" is for the head banin' stand up and scream rock and roll fan. There was this young chick - like seventeen - in front of us that stood the whole time screamin' and yellin WOO HOO!!!. I just can't justify doing that to Comfortably Numb ya know!!!

They should screen the crowd then supply us with recliners or army cots or somethin' cozy to curl up on ,,,,,,,maybe some waitresses serving cocktails, beer, wine.,,,then let the show begin!

Or am I just gettin' old?

I was seventeen yrs old living in TN and tried to convince my parents to let me go to NY to see *this band I really liked*. Heh, naturally I was slapped down.

Well Syd would have been hard to see, wasn't born when he was somewhat "sane" in the band in the 60's and i guess being a total mess now, he would never perform...

He stuff was WAYYY OUT there...

Bite my "real" ass...

While there is no argument that Watters was by far their best lyricist he was also an ego driven control freak.

That kind of $#it isn't what the floyd was about. Thank God.

And while not the same, I'd argue they were better without him... 4321

If I remember correctly, I saw them in 1988 at Arrowhead stadium.

It was an absolutely perfect night for a concert- 75 degrees, a slight breeze, not a cloud in the sky. I went with my girlfriend, her best friend, a few of my buddies, my sister, her boyfriend, and a few of her hot friends. We rented a van and took my car as well.

We started the partying early that day with a BBQ at my place. A buddy of mine passed out as soon as the lights went out and the first note was played. I gave my girlfriend and her best friend the floor tickets as the rest of us sat in lower-level. The music was clear and riveting. One of the loudest shows I'll ever attend.

After the show, it must have taken us an hour to find our parking space and when we finally did- all I remember was pulling bong hits in the back of the van while making-out with my girlfriend at the time. It was a night to remember.

Hence the smiley, Junior. :p

I actually agree with everything you said. I blame Waters for breaking up the band, because his personal shit was crowding out everything else. Someone else here said "The Final Cut" was their favorite Floyd album, which I found ironic because I DESPISE that album -- too depressing, way too personal; it was little more than a Waters solo project. He had the opportunity to exorcise his demons on "The Wall," NOW ENOUGH ALREADY! Yeah, your dad got killed, war sucks, blah, blah. Got it. Message received. Now could we PLEASE return to "Animals" or "Wish You Were Here" or something?

All I know is it was my birthday present and we came from St Joe and had a blast...thank god I am alive. The highways were bumper to bumper for miles...just creeping along, you could of walked faster. People hopping out of one car into another....does that sound like the one you went to?

Bingo!
I was there as well. In fact, it was my last day of school, my senior year in High School. By far the best concert I have ever seen and I've seen many.

I also went to '94 PF concert at Arrowhead, but felt the '88 show was quite a bit better.

Missed both of those shows as well.
Had tickets to see the Animals tour when it was in KC, one of my crew mates got sick and I had to pull his mid-shift (stationed at McConnell in Wichita),

Had tickets to see the wall tour in London and got stuck with extra duty, something and Air Traffic Controller never has to do (never did figure out who I pissed off)(stationed at RAF Upper Heyford).

It crossed my mind, I was stuck picking up trash off of the softball fields so that the would look nice and pretty for a tournament they were playing over the weekend. It was one of the wing commanders pet projects.

He got his though a few months latter everything and anything that could go wrong on base did.
He was the only Wing Commander to leave Heyford without a Star on his shoulder, seved the lil putz right.

Yep. Took my last highschool class, loaded up the car and made the roadie from Hutch to Arrowhead. Wore my PF T-shirt under my graduation gown.

Saw them again in '89 at Wechter Park, Belgium. It was just a big grassy field. I worked my way up close enought that I could count the frets on Dave's strat. A lot of the effects were lost on me, being that close, but it was still pretty cool.

Final cut was complete horse sh*t, like everyone else said it should be listed a Waters Solo album.

Would luv to see Floyd do one last album even if it is crap, just so they would go on tour again.

Not sure if they could get out of their wheel chairs to do it again

I believe the Arrowhead show was in '94. The Mrs. and I were dating at the time, so I'm pretty sure it was '94, not '93.


Although, I spent a great deal of time watching the stage breath, so I could be wrong.

Dude....I wasn't trying to pick on you. If you read the entire thread, you will see that you were not alone in the amount of peeps who thought it was 1987 when in fact it was 1988. Just trying to help.
