CD starts in middle of Learning To Fly ('...Can blow your soul right through the roof of the night.')

After Learning To Fly.

Dave: Thank you very much. Good evening. (reacting to applause?) [Lovely, lovely.] We're [gonna/going to] play some, uh... new songs from our current album, The Division Bell this half, and plenty of oldies and goldies for you later. This one is called What Do You Want From Me.

What Do You Want From Me.

A Great Day For Freedom.

Sorrow

Take It Back

On The Turning Away

Keep Talking

One of These Days

Dave: Thank you very much, we're [gonna/going to] take a 15-minute break. We'll be right back.

Shine On You Crazy Diamond

Breath

Time

High Hopes

Wish You Were Here

Dave: Thank you very much, hope you're all enjoying yourselves. (Referring to the lightning and thunder) We've had this laid on specially, at great expense...

Another Brick in The Wall

Great Gig In The Sky (first few piano chords)

Dave: Well... the piano seems to have stopped working, I've no idea why...umm.... It's awful damp up here... and down there. Shall we play something loud with the guitars, then? Shall we get straight on with Money then? You want to do that one? 'Cause the piano doesn't work, we'll do Money instead. I hope you're all having a great time, 'cause we are.

Money (with no cash register sound effects at beginning.)

During Money, lightning and thunder can be heard, the audience screaming and applauding every time as if it's part of the show, and David laughs occasionally.

Dave: (lightning and thunder) Well I think we might have to concede defeat on this one. Marvelous isn't it? Thought it was supposed to do this in England not in Texas. Right, we'll try one more, and if everything doesn't break down up here, which most of it has already, we can all go home then. Sorry about that. Unless it calms down a little bit.

Run Like Hell (guitar cuts out, and song breaks down midway through, after only one verse.)

Dave: Well, due to circumstances entirely beyond my control, everything up here's stopped working. So thank you very much for coming, I'm really sorry, but we're gonna have to love you and leave you.... Goodnight.


Second transcription

by Mark Schutte.

This is the show that was cut short due to thunderstorms, gales and driving rain. I believe it is the only Pink Floyd show ever to be rained out.

Floyd performs the entire first set. After "One Of These Days."

Dave: Thank you very much, we're gonna take a 15 minute break and we'll be right back.

Floyd performs second set. David speaks after "WYWH" (I believe it is at this point in the show when it starts raining.)

Dave: Thank you very much, I hope you are all enjoying yourselves, we have this late old specialty at great expense.

Band then performs "Another Brick In The Wall Pt. 2" by this point all the equipment starts to break down.

Rick starts to play the opening of "The Great Gig In The Sky" then stops.

Dave: Well, the piano seems to have stopped working. I have no idea why. Ah, it is a bit damp up here. Then we'll play something live with a guitar solo. So we'll get straight on with "Money." It's a good tune, we're playing it because the piano doesn't work. I hope you all understand. I hope you all are having a great time tonight... (The crowd erupts in cheers) ...'cause we are!

The Floyd perform "Money" without the piano. The coins sound effects before "Money" also did not work. You can actually hear the thunder and rain coming down.

After "Money":

Dave: Well I think we might have to concede defeat on this one.

(Fans scream "bullshit!")

Dave: Marvelous, isn't it? It's only supposed to do this in England, not Texas. We'll try one more, and if everything doesn't break down up here, which most of it has already. We can all go home then. (laughs) Unless it calms down a little bit.

Gilmour rushes into Run Like Hell and skips his guitar intro. The band gets through half the song and stops after the words "and the hammer batters down your door, you better run."

Dave: Well due to circumstances entirely beyond my control everything up here has stopped working. So thank you very much for coming. I'm really sorry, but we have to leave now. Goodnight.

Crowd screams "Bullshit, fuck you, bullshit, fuck you...!"

Due to the weather "The Great Gig In the Sky" "Us & Them" "Comfortably Numb" and "Hey You" were not performed.
