Pink Floyd concert pictures ~ Bill O’Leary

A word from the photographer

ON THIS NIGHT: Pink Floyd “The Wall”

While I do not consider these images to be some of my better ones, I do consider this night to be a rarity as performances of The Wall have become legendary over the years. On this night, February 27, 1980, Pink Floyd were to perform the 11th. show of only 12 performances in the USA. Nassau Coliseum on Long Island in New York was the venue as this short and very expensive tour was wrapping up.

The Wall

Entering the arena I was amazed at the size of the production, the stage was enormous with part of the yet to be built “Wall” stretching from one side to the other up into the seats even. Considering my angle of view was not as close as I would have liked, I was sure to capture the enormity of the show. I was also “in the door” for a mere $19.00 US, the cost of a face value ticket. I was GLAD to just be THERE !!

The visual effects

The first half of the show started, right away I could tell this would be a spectacle and I had to capture the best images possible. They played the album exactly as it was recorded, complete with added sound effects as well as plenty of visual effects including a replica fighter plane flying over the arena floor before crashing into the wall. The video images cast upon the surface of the wall were spectacular for the time, but nearly impossible to capture on film.

Part two

After a short intermission, the show continued with “Hey You” as the bricks in the wall were continuously built in as the show progressed leading to completion of the wall with the band hidden behind the massive stage structure. After a few more songs, one of the most incredible concert moments I’ve ever witnessed happened when David Gilmour appeared standing on top of the wall as “Comfortably Numb” started. He was silhouetted by bright white follow spots coming up from behind and below him, making him look like some guitar god on top of the world, simply awesome.
