Pink Floyd 1977 LSU Assembly Center
On this date, 44 years ago. Quite an eye opening experience for a then 17 year old. I knew of PF and had only really listened to the Dark Side of the Moon album at this point and liked the band. This concert turned me into a huge fan. The sound, lights, video screen, characters floating around the arena........and I was high as giraffe poosy. It was nothing less than a spectacle. This show was years before MTV but PF had a video screen showing corresponding music videos behind the band the entire show. $8.50 was the cost of the ticket. we were so lucky.......

I was there and was 17 as well. The best concert I ever went to.

However, we got so "disorientated"* that we somehow ended up on Airline Hwy trying to walk back to NOLA. After what seemed like forever some hippie in a Volkswagen bug picked me and my friend up and dropped us off at Airline and S Carrollton where I had to call my dad to come pick up his "eyes still dilated" son up at sunrise.


God Bless that hippie in the bug.

Funny thing is I remember this concert as well as any I ever went to. When the animal sounds started coming from the back of the arena I kept looking around for the dogs and the sheep.

When I hear a cash register ring I think of the song Money.

When people ask me if pigs fly I say of course they do because I seen it happen!!

Yep was there on floor on left stage near the front! Just a great show. Went with girl friend who I'm married and still together! Animals is a really great album. Man $8.50 on the floor. Paid $350 on the floor to see John Waters in Houston. The new floating pig at that show was awesome! But John Waters is so political had to bring that into the show. But was not surprised.

I was there and also had not previously been a Pink Floyd fan. I really didn't care for Dark Side of the Moon and had heard nothing of the Animals LP that Pink Floyd was showcasing. I just went because I had heard they put on a very good show.

It was definitely one of the best concerts I've ever attended. I immediately went out and bought the Animals LP. I loved it but really haven't care that much for their music since then, including the Wall.

But, if they were on tour and coming to an area I could reach, I dang well would try to be there. (Yea, I know they aren't a group anymore.)

Was at the show in Houston. Agree with everything you said. Best Buy has a blu ray dvd of a concert on that tour
