Montevideo, Nov 17 (EFE).- The Centenario stadium in Montevideo vibrated this Friday with the music of the British Roger Waters, who gave a show of about two hours as part of his farewell tour.
Dressed as a doctor, the legendary leader of Pink Floyd entered the stage of more than 50 meters accompanied by the song ‘Comfortably Numb’ and by the first ovation of those who attended the historic stage where the final of the first World Cup was played in 1930. soccer.
Minutes before, the giant screens that accompanied the show and on which different messages and images could be seen issued a warning: “If you are one of those who like Pink Floyd, but can’t stand Roger Waters’ political stuff, you can go to the bar.” “.
Then they stood up a few meters and the audience could see for the first time everyone who was with Roger Waters on stage: Dave Kilminster, Jon Carin, Gus Seyffert, Robert Walter, Joey Waronker, Shanay Johnson, Amanda Belair and Seamus Blake.
‘Another Brick in the Wall’ began to play and the audience quickly left their seats to sing one of the songs by the group Pink Floyd.
Meanwhile, the sky over Montevideo gave clear signs that rain was about to approach, something that finally happened in the middle of the concert and suspended it for a few minutes.
“I am very happy to be here with you in Montevideo,” said Roger Waters in front of an audience that at the beginning chanted his name, an ovation that the 80-year-old musician thanked by dancing.
‘Is This The Life We Really Want?’ and ‘Us & Them’ were other songs that were played, as well as ‘The Bar’.
After a brief break in the middle and when the rain had stopped, the musician born on September 6, 1943 in the county of Surrey returned to the stage in a wheelchair and wearing a straitjacket.
“Are there any paranoids in the stadium?” he asked before continuing to sing and throwing a T-shirt he was wearing to the audience.
The music did not stop and the show was coming to an end, in which Roger Waters took the opportunity to speak again with an audience that also enjoyed the song ‘Wish You Were Here’.
After the last two songs, the Briton came forward on stage with those who were with him and said goodbye while the music continued playing.
Now, the co-founder of Pink Floyd will give a new show in Buenos Aires on November 21 and four days later he will do so in Santiago, Chile.
