Waters to recreate Floyd’s ‘The Wall’ magic
London: English singer and founding member of the rock band Pink Floyd, Roger Waters will be reviving the band’s hit and innovative album ‘The Wall’ after thirty years since it was originally performed.
When staged earlier, the show went to just four cities between 1980 and 1981 because the cost of logistics and building the wall was huge.
But Rogers will now be going on a 30-city tour of Europe performing the hit album. This will be followed by a series of performances in the US, reports a news daily.
“Thirty years ago when I wrote The Wall, I was a frightened young man,” Waters said.
“In the intervening years it has occurred to me that maybe the story of my fear and loss with its concomitant inevitable residue of ridicule, shame and punishment, provides an allegory for broader concerns: nationalism, racism, sexism, religion, whatever,” he added.
