Comments:
Third night of four at Chicago's United Center, the fifth date of "The Wall" tour.  I'm not sure I can add anything that hasn't already been written; the show was visually and sonically spectacular, and the musicianship impeccable.  I went in with relatively low expectations, with visions of the 1990 Berlin Wall debacle in my mind, and was astounded.  To put it mildly, this show was worth the 30-year wait.

Truthfully, I am pretty sure I haven't listened to this album since about 1986; I played it endlessly throughout my adolescence and really burned myself out on it.  It turns out that it's actually pretty good!
