Release date for "The Wall" DVD
Posted by madhack on Oct 10, 1999
Release date for The Wall on DVD is set for November 9. You can place an advance order on CDNow. The DVD version of the movie includes commentary by Waters and James Guthrie, and Roger has suggested that Reel 7 (Hey You) has been added in as a bonus. Looks absolutely great. You'll also note on CDNow that it's being rereleased on VHS, for those of you without DVD players. I've seen nothing on the differences between the VHS and DVD releases, but hopefully the tape will have some goodies as well. Also note that some places are saying it's coming out on the 23rd; I'll note the correct date when I find out.

Woohoo! In case anyone cares, the Fandom received 1388 hits today - yet another record. That's the second record in the last 6 days. Keep 'em coming, I'm always striving to make this the best PF site on the net!

Yes, the site was down. Server lost its power supply and main hard drive. Some problems with the company I originally ordered the new power supply from ensued, but as you can see, the site is up. Enjoy.
In the Flesh rules
Posted by madhack on Jul 24, 1999
I just got back from seeing Roger Waters' second show, in Chicago, IL. It was incredible. I also met Michael Simone of REG - The Roger Waters International Fan Club. I will be putting up a setlist and a review shortly, possibly in a special tour section, but right now I'm too busy coming down from the show. I will say that it was simply amazing, however, and there were a few surprises - like when they played Dogs. I'm going to go glow some more. When I get back to Cleveland I'll write a review and put up the setlist. Maybe tomorrow, but no promises. Check back soon for more info on the show. On a concert-related, but different, note: if anyone is going to be at the Cleveland show on July 27 or the Baltimore show on August 20, I'll be the guy in black jeans and an orange short-sleeve buttonup shirt. Hope to see some of you there.
Roger's touring, Floyd isn't
Posted by madhack on Jun 14, 1999
Since no one seems to bother to read down past the first few news entries, here goes AGAIN: Roger Waters is currently touring. Any other Floyd-related tour rumours you have heard are false. What this means is that there is no upcoming Floyd tour, there are no upcoming Gilmour shows, there is no new album planned, and there won't be a millennium show in Egypt, Peru, England, Vegas, Brazil, or anywhere else you may have heard. Please don't email me about it.

100,000th hit recorded! It happened Sunday, June 6, and the person was using an ada.net.tr proxy server to surf the web... just thought I'd note the landmark.
