    Default Photos of Pink Floyd at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw.

    I found this nice series of photos on Flickr.

    The uploader has used the famous 1969 date, but I think these are from November 6th 1970. My rationale is that Dave is using his Bill Lewis guitar, and Rick has a Hammond organ onstage. Dave also has his black Strat, with a Roadrunner cartoon sticker, and Roger is using his sunburst P Bass, whereas the guys were using white instruments in 1969. The Revox tape recorder would presumably be used for crying baby sound effects during Embryo.

    Enjoy!

    Alrighty 300 + views and no comments? In the same time we've had about ten shit-tier Syd Barrett threads from the usual pack of fantasists?

    Can we agree that the Dope footage isn't all that exciting and doesn't deserve any more forum space already?

    You're welcome, I guess.

    I enjoyed! Apologies for not saying so -- perhaps I felt that I didn't have the time to do justice to the question of the date (though my instinct agrees with you that it's 1970, not that instincts count for much). Either way, it was nice to see these.

    I'd say you're on track with the instruments and all I can add is the length of Gilmour's hair seems to say 1970; which was a bit shorter in 1969.

    Hmmm, wonder what's on that reel to reel tape?!

    you are right for Gilmour's hair criteria to I.D; it looks 1970 rather than 1969
    But the neck of his guitar seems unusual ? at first I thought it was a Gibson SG but it is a fender, but the neck looks somehow different ? what's that guitar ?

    was there an Amsterdam concert at Concertgebouw in 1970 ? (by the way I don't remember having seen some pictures from the Amsterdam 69 show - whether it is the "Celestial Instruments" gig (August 69) or the other stellar gig - the VPRO now released officially)

    Nice set of photos.

    Anyone got any ideas where they originated from ?

    November 6, 1970 ? If they were as good as in August and late 1969 at the same place.... was this 1970 gig recorded by VRO ?
