Roger Waters brings 'The Wall' to Wembley Stadium in
Pink Floyd's Roger Waters will
be bringing his epic live production of 'The
Wall' back to the UK, reports NME.
The bassist will appear at London's Wembley Stadium on 14th
September (2013) as part of a 24 date European tour.
Waters said of the European dates:
"I'm extremely glad to be playing 'The Wall' in Europe
again. It's going to be a lot of fun for all of us. I've reworked
the show to play outdoors in large stadiums. It's really good. Even
more moving, engaging, dramatic and thrilling than the arena
"I've had to rethink the whole thing about stadiums. This
wide wall stadium show couldn't have been done 40 years ago. We
couldn't have filled the space in a way that would have been
emotionally, musically and theatrically satisfying. Technology has
changed. Now we can."
'The Wall' was first performed live in 1980, following the
release of the 1979 Pink Floyd album of the same name.
In 1990 Waters and producer Tony Hollingsworth created 'The Wall
- Live in Berlin', to commemorate the fall of the Berlin Wall eight
months earlier. Between 2010 and 2012, Waters performed the album
on his worldwide tour, 'The Wall Live.' The recent shows
incorporated a much wider wall with updated higher quality
projected content and leading-edge projection technology.
Since 2010, 'The Wall' has already played 192 shows to over
three million fans.
