I might go fishing for a cheap pair or mid-range single as the shows get closer. Anyone else going? What night(s)? Any pre-show talk? Greek Town or Little Italy would both be convenient.

Anyone have an extra they want to unload?

I'm going on the 20th. I think you can easily find a single at a decent price for any one of the four shows. I'm considering looking for a cheap seat for another night of the Wall.

what are the "cheap" seat prices? when the tickets went on sale almost every ticket was the same price of a ticket as if it was pink floyd touring

I saw Roger Waters' last tour and thought he had more "soul" than Pink Floyd. He definitely had all the toys and effects. I'm hoping to score a ticket for a second show around $100. However I might forgo a second Chicago show in favor of an Omaha show later in the Fall. It just depends on the dates and Iowa Hawkeye games.

Thought about it, but I saw Pink Floyd do the Wall in NY, and I'd rather keep that memory. I have seen Waters 3-4 times, and he always puts on a great show. If you haven't seen the Wall live, you should go see it.

I have the Berlin show on VHS, and I liked it, too

Got my tickets for October. And hoping it's the show where David Gilmour pays back that debt but will enjoy regardless. I've never seen a bad Roger Waters show and I've seen a few

Being from Indianapolis we were very disappointed that Waters chose to play 4 shows in Chicago and none in Indy. Especially since I don't think any of the Chicago dates are actually sold out? We chose to go to the Columbus show in October. The tour should really be rolling by then and I am sure Gilmour will be attending the Ohio show I have seen Waters on his past two tours. Both were excellent. I love the tour with Doyal Bramhall and the one that he played Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety was pretty damn good too.

No thanks, I was DONE with Floyd when the Wall came out, never could understand the sucess of that one, maybe if it had been edited down to one record!
