Mtv: Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters announces The Wall Tour marking the original stage show’s 30th anniversary

Sheer Awesome. Haven’t seen Floyd for 20 years. Remember the flying pig and thinking the wet people in the audience that weren’t under the overhangs of seats were melting. And the great music of course *cough*

LiveDaily:

…Additional details regarding on-sale dates and a forthcoming pre-sale will be made available at Waters’ website.

According to a press release, the 1979 concept album has previously been performed in its entirety only 31 times, most of them by Pink Floyd during the 1980-81 tour supporting the set, and again in 1990, when Waters performed it with an all-star cast to commemorate the fall of the Berlin Wall….

Mtv:

Three decades after Pink Floyd’s epic double-album head trip, The Wall, blew a generation’s mind, the band’s co-founder Roger Waters will perform the entire rock opera in concert again on an upcoming tour.

Waters left Pink Floyd in 1984 but has continued to perform his iconic songs as a solo artist for years. The Wall tour will mark the 30th anniversary of the British psychedelic rockers’ debut of the now legendary stage show for the ambitious album about isolation and madness.

On the tour, Rogers has promised to perform an updated version of the original stage show, which included the construction of a massive white brick wall between the audience and performers during the course of the show. The band performed the album in its entirety on its 1980-1981 tour, and Waters revived it for a star-studded event in 1990 that was filmed in front of a massive 500,000-person audience to celebrate the fall of the Berlin Wall in Germany.

Waters’ 35-date solo tour will kick off on September 15 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto and is slated to wrap up on December 13 in Anaheim, California…

…The album, one of the best selling of all time, features such classic rock radio staples as “Comfortably Numb,” “Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2,” “Run Like Hell” and “Mother.”
