    Default $10,000 Reward & 4 Coachella Tickets for Life

    I didn't see this posted anywhere else...but I heard this just now on the 10pm news on Channel 11 here in the valley!

    $10,000 Reward & 4 Coachella Tickets for Life for the return of THE FLYING PIG! That's what concert organizers are supposedly offering for Roger Waters balloon.

    Seems it got loose. AND neighborhoods as far as 2 miles away are also pissed and asking the city to clean up their yards after pounds of "Vote Obama" confetti were dropped all over their lawns.

    Who knew Roger Waters would cause such a stir! *LOL*

    I'm just wondering who ended up with the PIG! Was it local or did that sucker float off into Mexico? Maybe it's still airborne?

    Awesome. Thought it was intentionally released. Waters must have been thinking about the pig for the rest of his set.

    I have the pig and I am holding out for more money.

    The official Pink Floyd pig can go for way more than $10,000 on ebay!

    From what I understand, yes. My best guess about this is an unsubstantiated rumor/joke or a publicity stunt on someone's part.

    I have heard this also- that the pig is allowed to go pretty much wherever it wants to. I wonder if they just have a designated "Track Down The Wayward Pig" guy in the crew? I suppose though it IS possible that this time, they couldn't actually find that big fat fugger!

    I doubt it.
    It's an FAA thing.
    Something to do with air traffic.
    A pilot would know more on this subject.
    Could you imagine if the Pig were to take out an airliner.

    I would think they would have some sort of tracking system in that damn thing or a remore control or something. It is the fucking 21st century.

    well not sure if it was really "lost" i think they released it...
    It sure was a trip to see it floating arounf the crowd, and then rising up and away..... with crowd lazer beam ponters all over it.... And who knows where it will finally land or pop? Pig on the loose... Id say it could go all the way to the east coast... hopefully it wont finally come down in the middle of the ocean somewhere!!

    Are there any websites posting sightings of the pig?
    Are we sure that the pig isnt going to cause a plane to crash?
    Wait there it is! No no false alarm... looked in the mirror. Aww. Now im sad.
    You know what else was really intriguing was the confetti dropping plan that flew so low. That show was completely unbelievable. I feel really fortunate to have been there. And man i was able to get close during MMJ... does anyone know if they sold fewer tix this year.

    All I know is that he was released during the Hollywood Bowl show a couple of year band and they supposedly recovered him 20 miles away in Santa Monica. Here's a pic from that show



    Up up and away piggy!

    The releasing of the pig was an accident?? Could have fooled me.

    I was assuming it was on a line so they could pull it back down later, until it went so high it was beyond line of vision. I just couldn't imagine them simply letting go a balloon the size of a school bus. Talk about pollution. The Obama flier thing is so funny, though, THAT is ACCIDENTAL pollution. If they really had been dropped over the fest they would have had them cleaned up relatively quickly.

    getting it

    Now I know what Peter Frampton was talking about when he got pissed when they released the pig by accident and said that he had gotten it at Pink Floyds Yard Sale on that Simpsons episode when Homer tours on the Hullabalooza Festival.

    Did anyone see Widespread Panic at ACL in 03? They apparently had the original pig. Before their second set, which opened with Another Brick In the Wall, they played that Simpson's episode on the screens. It was the most entertaining thing I think Widespread Panic has ever done.

    I'm sure the pig is on a timer, and when the time is up, it begins to deflate.

    No, because most of them are indoors. But yes, it's been done before, and on purpose.
