Roger Waters to bring The Wall alive on fall tour

, Staff

Pink Floyd bassist and legendary songwriter Roger Waters has announced plans for a fall tour on which he will perform the Pink Floyd classic concept album The Wall in its entirety. Waters is set to hit Boston’s TD Garden on September 30. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $57.50 to $252.50, go on sale Monday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation.

The tour is set to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the seminal rock album and will feature an all new state-of-the-art production as Waters performs the album in its entirety, a spectacle Waters has only done 31 times before, including the 1980-81 Pink Floyd Tour in support of the album. He also performed it in July of 1990 in Potsdamer Platz in celebration of the recently fallen Berlin Wall.

The Wall, which still remains one of the US top 5 best selling albums of all time, is considered one of the most influential records ever recorded.

“This new production of ‘The Wall’ is an attempt to draw some comparisons, to illuminate our current predicament, and is dedicated to all the innocent lost in the intervening years,” said Waters in a press release. On his last tour of America, Waters performed Pink Floyd’s 1973 classic The Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety.

Various reports also indicate that Waters continues to work on his next solo release, which would be his first since 1992’s Amused to Death.
