In the Flesh – Live is a two-disc live album that captures performances from Roger Waters' three-year In the Flesh tour. It's also considered as the tour of the album "Amused to Death", because it's the first time he plays songs from that album.

Overview[edit]

"My view is that I've been involved in two absolutely classic albums – The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall," Waters told Classic Rock. "And if you haven't got Amused to Death, you haven't got the full set. So this album – the live one, which pulls together songs from all three albums – hopefully redresses the balance."[citation needed] The album features selected songs from a number of Pink Floyd albums, Waters solo efforts and a new song "Each Small Candle".

DVD[edit]

A DVD of the same title was also produced, and the two were released in a new package in 2006. A SACD featuring both stereo and 5.1 mixes was also released.

The material for the DVD was taken from a 27 June 2000 performance at the Rose Garden Arena in Portland, Oregon, while the double CD contains various recordings drawn from four performances in Phoenix, AZ; Las Vegas, NV; Irvine, CA and Portland, OR.
