Let's be clear: this is Roger Waters doing a tour, NOT Pink Floyd. And at those prices, give me a break. And let's also rememeber that The Wall was mostly a Roger thing and contributed to the split of him from the others.

I hate when hashbrown makes sense... I do...

I like Pink Floyd... but pink floyd - waters, or Water + 0 pink floyds members just doesn't cut it.

Im willing to accept Pink Floyd without Wright

Re: The Wall, 30th Anniversary tour, Zurich 2011.

Roger Waters seems to think that people in Switzerland have more money than sense

Manchester prices are £75 + £9.00 handling fees. It would probably work out cheaper to fly back to the UK for the concert.

Re: The Wall, 30th Anniversary tour, Zurich 2011.

Thanks for your offer but, and my jaw is still on the floor, not only did I get on the pre-sales list for Zurich, but to date I can also try for tickets in Ireland and Manchester. As was already mentioned, the prices are much cheaper in the UK so I'm going to check out that option. Once again, thank you very much for the offfer.
I should buy a lottery ticket!

Hi!
I did register on the website and got an e-mail offering me tickets. Looks like some are already sold out. However, it states that tickets are not transferable. I would be happy to help you get them...not sure how we could do it though........

You can put your name down for up to five locations. I am in the list for Manchester. No guarantee of tickets though.

Re: The Wall, 30th Anniversary tour, Zurich 2011.

I can only assume it's freight costs that add to the price. I'm looking into going to Manchester, but it seems complicated. He's starting to annoy me!

Re: The Wall, 30th Anniversary tour, Zurich 2011.

Just received Zurich pre-sale prices in UK. Tickets are £207.47 (EUR237.00) including charges.

(Tickets EUR211.50 plus EUR25.50 handling)

There seem to be some strange prices. Buying your tickets in the UK seems to be a better option.

£207.47 ~= 350 CHF. The tickets yesterday (excluding the first five rows), were offered to me in $, and with conversion came to over 300CHF.

Re: The Wall, 30th Anniversary tour, Zurich 2011.

Being a Floyd fan since I could manage to get headphones over my ears, I was rather annoyed at the ticket prices for Zürich. It's not that I can't pay the high asking price, I just won't!

€ 176 or € 211 per ticket to go and see one quarter of Pink Floyd and the freakin' bass player at that! No way!

Considering that Roger Waters always scolded Gilmour and Mason for playing with their cars (ie. blowing thier money on boy's toys) in a couple of his solo albums; these tour ticket prices are obviously sticking to his strict socialist principles - er, not!

Re: The Wall, 30th Anniversary tour, Zurich 2011.

I'm going to Zurich. For me (controversial I know) Roger Waters was/is Pink Floyd. I used to listen to The Wall many times a week for years as a teenager, so I have to see this. I don't mind at all that it's just Roger, so long as the guitarist rips the solo from Comfortably Numb of course.

As far as I can tell (the presale process is a little confusing), I have two tickets to Zurich. I tried to convince some friends to go, so as it stands I currently have one ticket free! 1 year and 4 days to go.

A free ticket! Great. I'll take it. Or do you mean "available".

These tickets in the presale are for the premium spots. When they go on general release, I expect them to be considerably cheaper. I hope so, anyway.

Frankly I'm surprised a four star daydream didn't get higher priority around here.

For the sake of all attending EFers, I truly hope Mr. Waters puts on a better concert than "Pink Floyd" was doing in the 90s. I really love classic PF, but the last few concerts I attended (including that "Pink Floyd" concert) left me pretty burned out on big-name live shows. Maybe I'm just getting old (and cheap?), but I'd rather kick back with the home audio and my favorite libations, etc., than pay CHF300 to play deaf sardine for an evening.

Phew, I was saved by a homonym!

Yes, it's "available" or unallocated I suppose.

I got the cheapest of those expensive tickets.

RIP.

Of the friends I invited to use my spare ticket, most were Dave Gilmour bigots, with a couple of Syd fans and me in the middle.

Re: The Wall, 30th Anniversary tour, Zurich 2011.

A second date has been added in Zurich: 7th June 2011.

Roger Waters seems to be on a good little earner there

(Two more London dates also added at O2 Arena)
