Here is what a fellow Floyd fan had to say about attending this concert...

"March 17, 1973, my friends and I waited in line for hours outside Radio City Music Hall for good seats to the general admission concert by Pink Floyd. The doors opened at 11:55 PM, and we rushed to get front and center seats, about 15 rows back. Prime real estate! At the start of the show, the curtains opened and "Obscured By Clouds" began playing. However, nothing was on the stage. No amps, no band, just a low cloud of smoke. Slowly, the tops of amplifiers began to rise through the smoke! The whole set up, including the band, playing, rose from the smoke...then the entire set rolled forward, out of the smoke. Awesome!

During the show, I was introduced to surround sound, the mirror ball, and theatrics such as a flying spaceship, and an astronaut emerging from exploding fireworks. At one point in the show, the music was circling the hall in one direction, while the lights from the mirror ball were circling in the other direction. I remember sitting there, thinking "I could stay in this seat and watch this forever".

Unfortunately, the show did end at about three in the morning and my friends and I had to ride the subways until six, as no busses left the city until then. We all agree to this day that this was our ultimate concert experience. A perfect show."

He continues...

"I recently discovered that there may be a recording of that show, "The Dark Side Of Radio City". I contacted another collector who said that recent tapes from the Waterbury, Connecticut show have surfaced, and prove that "The Dark Side Of Radio City" was actually the Waterbury show. This was disappointing, and I was wondering if anyone else knew of this."
