Lucky you!! Animals is by far my fav era for Floyd. Sadly, only a couple very good sounding recordings of that tour even exist. What I would give to have witnessed that!Pink Floyd, 1977, Soldier Field, Chicago.
I was supposed to get a ride to the concert with some older guys who worked at the TV shop with me, but they decided at the last minute they didn't want a 15-year-old kid along and told me I couldn't come with them. So I bought a train ticket, walked from Northwestern Station to Soldier Field, and attended the concert by myself. The people sitting near me were appalled that my "friends" had stiffed me, and sort of took me under their wing. They were very generous; that's all I'll say.
As it turned out, the guys from work got a late start, and by the time they arrived, all the good seats were full. They had to sit behind a speaker and couldn't even see the band, whereas I had a great view of not only the band, but the giant projection screen above the stage, and the floating inflatable pigs and sheep.
