Roger Waters headlined the main stage of Coachella on Sunday
Perfected after a week of rehearsals at the Forum arena in Los Angeles, all of it was matched with the sort of special effects and spectacular images Waters and Pink Floyd are known, like the giant inflatable pig covered in graffiti ("Don't be led to slaughter") that floated above the crowd during "Sheep" to explosive sparks of electric guitar by Dave Kilminster before being allowed to break free as spotlights crisscrossed the sky. Waters' night ended with songs from The Wall, with fiery virtuosic soloing by violinist Lili Haydn taking over Gilmour's original leads on "Comfortably Numb." During "Run Like Hell," a pair of dudes in baggy shorts responded on the grass with a lengthy interpretative dance -- falling to one knee, finger pointed in the air, stepping forward and back, bowing and swinging their hips -- a routine no doubt practiced back home between multiple bongloads.
