The words on the screen and voice from the sound system were crystal clear. One minute before showtime, the mood was set. “….if you can’t stand Roger Water's politics, you might do well to fuck off to the bar right now…” And we were off to the races.


The Pink Floyd Co-Founder hit the “in-the-round” stage for his second sold-out appearance at The Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. By far, it was the most anti-fascism, pro-human rights, anti-wealth, pro-immigration, anti-violence, and much more, concert I ever attended. Roger is promoting his This Is Not A Drill Tour and the 23-song setlist favored heavily from The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall and three of his solo tunes “The Powers That Be”, “the Bravery of Being Out of Range” and “The Bar.”  Whether you believe in his viewpoints or not, whether you are blue or red, right or left, it was a show not to be missed. He brings his tours…and opinions to Madison Square Garden at the end of August. (30th & 31st)

My name is Steve Cerf and concert photography is my passion. I got into concert photography after seeing a young Freddy Mercury mesmerize his audience at the Philadelphia Civic Center back in 1977. Since then, I have photographed countless live performances of all kinds. Located in Philadelphia, my ability to experience the show and a performer’s essence and “sweat” is what I incorporate into my images.
