Wow.. I can't believe some of you said that Prince's set was better than Waters.. Let's see what the overall consensus of the board it. If you didn't see both, then don't vote.



Waters may have been my favorite performance ever.

This is like saying Pizza is better than Burgers. Both are great in their own right.

Prince was magical. Roger waters does too much ambient shit.

I was high on LSD for Prince and that made it that much more Awesome! Roger Waters I saw sober and I was blown away! I can't really vote on who was better but all I know is that Roger waters did the first ever Main Stage intermission! CRAZY SHIT!

Prince is probably a better individual performer, but Waters had the better show. I'm sorry, but I love Pink Floyd, the song choices were great, DSOTM is amazing, the sound effects were incredible, the light show was fantastic, and the props/flames/fireworks were just too good. Great way to close the festival.

Sorry Prince, but Roger out did ya.

prince was fucking better than anything i could have hoped for. that being said, somehow roger waters was even better than prince's set... within the first song.

why do we need to compare them? why the need for a competition?

Exactly. You can't compare quality. I'll go for Prince but that's just my musical taste....

Both were so good. I chose Waters because it was a better "show" but they were both fantastic.

yeah apples and oranges.

ive never been a fan of prince or really listened to much of his music before but i have to say i was blown away by how amazing of a guitarist and performer he is. i could tell the crowd was totally into it. still, my favorite parts were the more familiar "come together" and "creep" covers.

that being said, roger waters still put on the most epic show ever. he's known as a great conceptualist for a reason and he can package and express his ideas and songs brilliantly, especially on stage. how can you argue with a graffiti pig flying over the audience alongside airplanes dropping political flyers onto the audience (the obama flyers never made it to the audience of course, as the wind carried them onto the unsuspecting lawns of nearby residents).

maybe its just because im a fan of pink floyd, but for me, roger waters had the better show, hands down.

As I weaved through the crowd to get closer, I heard people saying it was the best of over 500 concerts they'd been to, and I remembered then the talk I heard growing up that you never saw a concert like Pink Floyd in the 70s, and then it hit me, I was transported to a different place and time, and what else is cool is Waters doesn't pull any punches, he says what he wants to say about a lot of things, both with the lyrics and the patter. He's his own man and I respect that.

im gonna have to go with waters, but if Sheila E played a set on the drums, id have to go with her. I couldnt believe how she fucking put it down.

Exactly. I'm not voting. There should be a tie choice

Same. I voted Prince even though he's not really my thing - he's just too fucking good to be human. I bet he doesn't have a belly button.

I thought I was looking at a drag queen on the stage during prince's performance...he was really good and surprised me with shiela but roger blew it out of the water...

I'm kinda having a hard time getting over the pollution his show generated...a lost pig, propaganda pamphelts and the debris from all the pyrotechnics/explosions...Don't get me wrong I loved his show I just didn't agree with it's eco impact...

What about Coachella in general? Coachella should sell those "Reverse your Carbon Footprint" pieces of crap, so all the douches can think they are saving the environment.

wow...randy is so right we are a bunch of light show monkeys. C'mon you guys are going to pick someone who uses backing tracks vs the single greatest live performer alive today.

Both were amazing but I have to give it prince, maybe its cause I was way in the front with the die hard fans but the way he got the crowd going like nothing I have ever experienced

Jesus Christ, guys, Waters came in late and ended early on every fucking part he sang. Watch this clip and try and tell me that wasn't a fucking sing-along concert. He cuts every single note short, usually at least a half-second short of how long it's supposed to last and a full second short of the rest of the crowd. It's just sad.
