Whou would have thought that I would have the opportunity to go to a world famous rock concert in Brazil? Thanks to the generosity of one of my Brazilian friends, I was able to do just that and see the Roger Waters "The Wall Live" tour in Porto Alegre. Since the first concert I ever attended was Pink Floyd after Roger Waters had left the band, this was like completing something unfinished. As far as putting on an amazing show, these were without a doubt the best I've attended, especially in terms of visuals and special effects.
It was held in a soccer stadium called "Beira Rio" in Porto Alegre, far and away the largest venue I've ever attended. The fuzzy object in the background was supposed to be the airplane in the next picture.
We were asked not to use flash photography once the lights went down, so the rest is on video. Sadly, you can see just how many people cannot follow instructions, as camera flashes were going off constantly throughout the show.
Having massive problems with my video editing software, so I'm going to go ahead and publish this post and hope I can get it sorted out later.
