      I did see Pink Floyd in Auckland (NZ) in 1988, but there were so many people in the stadium we had to sit up on a steep slope in the trees and you could only see half of the stage, very disappointing to miss a lot of the special effects, but the music was great.

      FANtastic lens, Sockii! I love the band and love this lens, a fitting tribute to a great band. i have to say, when it comes to the Floyd, the reason they're one of my fav's is that they have the 3 different eras of Syd, Roger and Dave. i loved The Wall when i was growing up but for sheer musical pleasure, i now find it hard to go past the Gilmore influenced Division Bell.
