At the end of last term, six lucky students from across New College Lanarkshire’s Music and Sound Production department accompanied lecturer Bertie Fritsch to see Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) for his Us & Them world tour at the SSE Hydro Friday 29th June. Students got exclusive VIP access to witness the band’s afternoon rehearsal, sound check, visual set up, choreography and run through with local school children from Glasgow, for the chorus on Another Brick in the Wall, before attending the show.
The 2-hour show included many seminal tracks from classic Pink Floyd albums Meddle, Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Wall and Roger’s latest solo release Is this the Life We Really Want? In the interval the students got to meet the rock legend backstage for a quick photo call. The day was an unforgettable experience all around.
