    Pink Floyd at Live 8

    I agree - "Wish You Were Here" & "Comfortably Numb" were the highlights of the day for me.

    Still on a natural high after the Floyd. Great to see Roger Waters back, smiling and looking in such good form.

    Amazing to see so many youngsters singing the lyrics - there's hope for music yet.

    Pink Floyd, The Who and Paul McUpMyOwnArse were dull rubbish and should have stayed at home! The gig ramped up nicely towards the end with the crowd rocking only for these OAP's to come on and kill the atmosphere stone dead. Even Peter Kay got a better reaction from the crowd.
    Pete Townsend gives me the creeps!
    While we're on the subject, what was all the hype about the Killers for? Are they supposed to be good or something?
    Shíte!
    Travis were fairly good.
    REM were ok but Stipe seems to have lost his voice.
    Snow Patrol were good.
    Snoop Dog was shíte.
    Madonna was good.
    Robbie Williams was excellent!
    Joss Stone was good.

    If they really had to be there then they should have been on early in the afternoon. They killed the concert but perhaps the were on late to disperse the crowd.
    I'd nearly go to a Robbie Williams concert, he was so good!

    Robbie Williams was absolute muck imo boring rubbish,he was out of it during the day while being interviewed and made a bit of a cnut of himself on live TV.,he was more concerned about getting his h0le .Pink Floyd were amazing though,Razorlight and Velvet Revolver were good.

    The majority of the crowd, it appears, would disagree with you on that.

    Im not a pink floyd fan, and would not have bothered to watch them - I heard them because it was on in the pub when i got there. They were ok IMO I guess its like all of the bands, it depends what your musical taste is.

    As much as it pains me to say it , I agree with Peadar on robbie Williams. Much like Madonna, Im not an obbsessive fan(I like a good bit of what they have done) but everyone was raving about him, and he is a born entertainer.

    I think i would have changed the running order, and Pink Floyd should probably have been on earlier.

    Purely out of curiosity, in the same way that people go the Natural History Museums to see Dinosaurs!

    The whole day was leading to the big anti-climax that was the long and winding road, so it was as well to put pink floyd in near the end to slow the tempo a bit.

    Plus, it's 11.00 on a monday morning and pink floyd are on the radio, so at least some good came from it.

    I'm simply talking how entertained the crowd were, Lionel.
    You can't deny that they all sang along, and he got them going.
    He worked his socks off for that crowd, which is a lot more than can be said for the dinosaurs.
    Just a pity that Freddie Mercury wasn't with us.

    have to agree with teh majority on this thread, the more musically eclectic, i mentioned it on a thread on off topic, but the majority of people there enjoyed robbie more than anyone, these people going for the simple reason it was a free concert, not the real reason that is. The majority of people who appreciate(d) music were blown away with the likes of the who and pink floyd ( im not a pink floyd fan ), there really really was something special with the latter. anybody watching on the tv was like my god its floyd etc, and i was watching it in a pub as well.

    peter kay imo was quality. "!eh shutup ********" he must have been rotten. but was quality, the best comedian on it, that little britain thing was ****e. how do some people get away with outputting scouring muck??

    Madonna was good.

    Jesus Christ, Peadar, you're in right form lately????

    Pink Floyd were brilliant - that dinosaur slag is itself a dinosaur -the NME was using that in the 1970s. They got a better reception than Snow Patrol or Madonna or Josh Stone and many young people knew Floyd's lyrics which seems to indicate that good music from original bands still remains good music. What the fcuk has age got to do with it?
    Madonna was good? Snow Patrol were good? Travis were fairly good? Ah Jesus, you are kidding.
    Josh Stone has a great voice but her anaemic white soul is bland and her backing band sound like a bunch of session musicians having a studio work out. She needs better material and got a woeful reception. I really felt sorry for her.
    The timing of Floyd was excellent and their music brought the later stages of the concert to a lovely solid conclusion. The positive and loud reaction to Floyd seems to indicate that they upped the atmosphere rather than diminish it.

    Madonna was her usual BS self - great backing choir to her tuneless warblings (that'f id she wasn't lip synching as usual which Dave Fanning said she did for all her Slane gig.

    Thought Williams was his usual, cheeky self and he knows how to work a crowd for sure - charisma he really does have.

    I'm convinced you're taking the p!$$.

    Maybe, young man ( ) the shock of seeing performers who can play their instruments and can sing came as a shock with all the over rated $h!te that's around these days. LOL

    You're definitely taking the p!$$, Corky Boy.

    Don't mind him - he's only trying to rise us Conor 74 - McCartney's set wasn't that great - he seemed tired and kinda distracted.
