Roger Waters Revives 'The Wall' For Open-Air Tour
Roger Waters has announced plans to tour his acclaimed "The Wall" show in 24 open-air venues for the first time next year - and promises it will be bigger and better than ever. It will be the first time he plays the show at an outdoor arena. Back in 2010, he said: "It's something I've always wanted to do outdoors theatrically. If you don't come there's something f--king wrong with you." A world tour for "The Wall" began in 2010, and according to Prog magazine Waters has performed it to over three million fans across 192 concerts. The new tour will take place at 24 outdoor venues across Europe. "I'm extremely glad to be playing "The Wall" in Europe again. 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 shows," he said. "The 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." In other Roger Waters news, he recently revealed plans to write a brand new concept album. Details are scarce, but he said at the time, "I'm sort of obsessed with the idea that religious extremism is a maligned factor in most of our lives."
