To mark the 30th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s concept album, The Wall, Roger Waters is bringing it back on tour. Waters thinks that hidden in the personal story of “Pink” lies an allegory for universal, political, and social themes that are still relevant today.
The last time The Wall was performed live was in Berlin, Germany, on July 21, 1990 to celebrate the fall of the Berlin Wall. A sell-out crowd of over 250,000 people attended with an additional 100,000 after the gates were opened; along with fifty-two countries broadcasting the concert. It featured the building of a 550-foot-long and 82-foot-high wall during concert, which was then demolished at the end.
The new tour will feature the construction and deconstruction of a 240-foot-wide and 35-foot-tall wall, along with other props and special effects.
Waters believes this will be his last major tour; his swan song. The tour kicks off on September 15, 2010 in Toronto, Canada, and will conclude on December 13, 2010 in Anaheim, California.
