I've seen Pink Floyd too, it was an incredible experience.
Yeah, I was 14 when he bit it. Floyd was the best show I've seen, partly because the Division Bell tour was incredible, and partly because they've been my favorite band since I was in HS. I saw them in a sold out stadium on about the third show of their NA tour with 100,000 other fans.

Then you saw the Division Bell Tour too. Although I wish they had never broken up, I honestly don't think I missed Roger at that show, and I think the acrimony between him and David and Richard would have been palpable. It was probably a better tour without him. The production values on that tour were unprecedented and probably unsurpassed. It was as near a perfect show as I think you could put on at that scale. Getting to hear the entire Dark Side of the Moon live was unforgettable, as were the twin inflatable pigs.
