“Still the undisputed master of art rock, this show was nothing short of magical. Stunning” – Daily Star
“It was hard to imagine a better blend of atmosphere, visuals and sound” – **** Daily Telegraph
“Something beyond merely giving the fans what they wanted… a spiritual experience” – **** The Times
“Gilmour rattles and roars again… when his guitar spoke it roared…. … unpredictably gritty… a blistering Run Like Hell had a punk undertow but still glistened…” – **** Evening Standard
