A show ÚNICO
Nov. 7, 2018
With a monumental staging, Roger Waters enfolded El Único with images and sounds on Tuesday night; the 45,000 souls lived a unique sensorial experience.
One of the most emotional parts of the show was when Waters and his band played The Wall. The audience shouted, sang, vibrated and gave a standing ovation to the kids who choreographed the song wearing a t-shirt with the word “Resist” on their chests. And then, a long list of the British artist’s big hits followed the emblematic Pink Floyd’s song published in 1979. The crowd was a mixture of adults and kids enjoying the historic songs of this international musical artist, who left a mark on the 70’s and 80’s generation and has become a legend.
A 66 x 25 meters stage, a stadium- width screen, 236 sound boxes and more than 300 lighting devices were part of the infrastructure setup for Roger Waters' show .
Eight shows in Brazil, one in Uruguay, and another 10 (Chile, Perú, Costa Rica, México) after these two performances at El Único will complete the LatinAmerican leg of the US + THEM tour.
But this is not the end just yet, there is still one more show. On Saturday, there will be another mythical night by Roger Waters.
The playlist was the following:
Speak to me/Breathe
One of these days
The great gig in the sky
Welcome to the machine
Wish you were here
Happiest days brick
Us and them
Smell the roses
