David Gilmour's 3rd night in Chicago, previously featuring a night at the United Center and an interlude at the (relatively) intimate Auditorium Theater, where Pink Floyd had performed legendary sets in the early '70s. Having caught the Auditorium show two days earlier, I will admit that the set grew on me; the first half (which was heavy on the newer material) was much lower-energy but I found myself appreciating the intracacies of the arrangements. The second half, which basically amounted to a greatest-hits set, was much more engaging to the crowd and a fun performance. I think the set was identical to the earlier nights in Chicago. 

In terms of performance, I thought it was solid but lacking in some of the "deep tracks" that were featured on the 2006 tour (for example, I would have killed to hear "Echoes"). If you're a fan of David Gilmour (and I will say that I got a new appreciation of what a guitar virtuoso he is during the two shows I saw), you will be satisfied with the performance. The recording quality surprised me; I was aghast at how inattentive my neighbors were during the show, and the couple from Brazil next to me spent literally the whole show Face Time-ing their friends back home (a first for me) -- the husband was very focused on sharing his real-time reactions with his Facebook friends list but very little time focusing on the show. Somehow most of the loud chatter is absent from this recording except for the quietest parts of the performance.
