"No gimmicky light show or practiced cover band can match the majesty of seeing Roger Waters recreate his visionary work with Pink Floyd. And even though he’s currently touring under the guise of performing the legendary 'Dark Side of The Moon,' that’s literally only the half of it. 'Dark Side' was originally performed as Act 2 of a Floyd show - exactly how Waters did it last night before a capacity crowd for the first of two gigs at Mansfield’s Tweeter Center.

For all the anticipation surrounding Act 2, the first set was a much more compelling display. That’s not to knock Floyd’s 1973 masterpiece, which the musically muscled 11-piece band did commendable justice to. But hearing him lead his troops through crisp renditions of 'Have a Cigar,' 'Sheep' - during which an inflatable pink pig circled the venue - 'Wish You Were Here,' the opener 'In the Flesh' and 'Shine on You Crazy Diamond (Parts 1-5),' complete with multiple images of the late Syd Barrett flashing across the video screen, was infinitely more satisfying."
