It’s been reported that many fans at Roger Waters Wall shows in Holland were in shock at the shows on the 9th & 11th April when Roger produced an imitation machine gun and pointed it at the audience. (This we might add is a normal part of the show). Sadly however, on Saturday the 9th a crazed gunman killed 6 people in the Ridderhof Mall in the town of Alphen 13 miles southwest of Amsterdam by opening fire using a machine gun. Apparently some of the Dutch media were not impressed calling Roger ‘Shameful’ & ‘Insensitive’. It is not known at this time if Roger was aware of the tragedy prior to the show/s.
I was in the front, right in the middle and that was a big difference compared to Friday further away in the back on the side. This show was flawless and when you are this close, the show really grabs you by the b…..! Amazing and wonderful. After the show Roger held a monologue thanking everyone helping to tear HIS wall down over the last 30 years.
