It’s been selling out stadiums around the world, and finally it’s Australia’s turn to witness Pink Floyd’s former bass player Roger Waters playing their landmark 1979 album The Wall in full. The Wall, written and produced by Roger Waters, was first performed live by Pink Floyd in 1980 and was only performed 29 times by Pink Floyd during 1980-81.
Originally released in November 1979, The Wall was America’s top-selling album of 1980 and is still in the US Top 5 best-selling albums of all time. Then in 2010 Waters brought it to life live, performing the album in its entirety – including the anthemic ‘Another Brick In The Wall’, rock classic ‘Comfortably Numb’, ‘Mother’, ‘Hey You’ and ‘In the Flesh’.
The Wall Live features all the classic Roger Waters special effects, with bells and whistles including the original Gerald Scarfe imagery, the crashing aeroplane, quadraphonic sound, pyrotechnics, gigantic inflatable puppets and flying pig, and adds the latest projection technology, video mapping and many elaborate effects.
With Waters leading the performance, visuals are a show by themselves, projected onto the infamous wall that is being built brick by brick during the show. In all 424 bricks are used to construct an imposing wall 230 feet long and 35 feet high, dominating the arena.
