In 2018 I went to Manchester to watch Roger Waters on his Us and Them Tour.
When I saw that the tour was captured on film and it was to be shown at the cinema, I jumped at the chance to see it. Described as an “unmissable cinema event,” promising “state-of-the-art visual production and breath-taking sound.” I wondered; how would the producers capture this spectacle and would the film do the tour justice?
A family of fans
My wife, mother-in-law and eldest son jumped in the car and drove to a neighbouring city in order to watch the film. We were all in awe at the concept together with the footage. I am a fan of using cinema to broadcast live events. It extends the entertainment environment and gives many more people to get closer to their idols.
Roger Waters (of Pink Floyd fame) is a pioneer of stadium rock. He is in part responsible for some of the world’s most iconic music. It remains impressive to see such a wide demographic of people enjoying his music. I cannot recommend this film highly enough. For me at least, his music is enjoyed the most when watched as well as listened to.
