EPIC

One of my first shows in Dubai was the Roger Waters concert in Dubai Media City on February 21, 2006. I made it just in time for Roger to take the stage. And though I was a few stone throws away from the stage, I had a pretty good view of the huge screen behind the band. I didn't care much for the music or the vocals once the screen began playing because Roger made sure his theatrics got done what his voice couldn't say.

As my fellow blogger Ash put it the show was indeed much like an 'epic'. And like her, I have never fell short of words to use from my vocabulary (if I do say so myself) until now. But I gather the English language has no words to match the proportions of his message. I wish people had stopped drinking and dancing for a bit to listen to what he had to say. Quite an eye-opener. Reminded me of the things I believed in but had forgotten over time. Thank you, Roger!

Easily the best gig I've ever been to. I wish he had performed more of his solo tracks but I suppose in a town like ours you just cater to the masses. Too thought-provoking and deep for some.

Aye, folks out here pay good money not to be thinking thawts, see. ;)
