Roger Waters Adds A New Song To 'The Wall'
Roger Waters wants to add a new song to his renown "The Wall" concert this year. 2013 will be the first time his show tours open-air venues around the world - something Waters has always wanted to do. The new song is called "The Ballad Of Jean Charles De Menezes", which tells the real story of a man who was shot dead by police in London in the wake of terrorist attacks and fear in the city. "It's a surprise to people," Waters said of the song. "They've never heard it before." The new show adds brand new special effects. One example: the plane crash sequence has doubled in length and ends in a "spectacular fireball" thanks to new HD technology and a bigger stage set. "It's beautiful," Waters told Something Else (via Prog). "I sometimes get stranded at one end. 'F--k, I've got to get back to the middle of the stage in about eight seconds!'" Watch a short documentary about the new open-air Wall tour here:
