Roger Waters Bringing The Wall Tour to American Baseball Stadiums
Good news for fans…Roger Waters back in 2012. I would hope the tour comes to Target Field in Minneapolis this time round. Ticket prices might be an issue, but for the die-hard fan like myself, it’s time to start saving our pennies.
Roger Waters is making plans to bring his highly successful Wall tour back to America in 2012. The show will hit venues he missed the first time around – as well as baseball stadiums in a few big cities. “There are quite a few markets we didn’t cover last time, like Austin,” he says in an interview for the new issue of Rolling Stone, on stands and available through Rolling Stone All Access on September 30th. “But we want to base the tour around Saturday nights in baseball stadiums. As we speak, I’m at my office working on an outdoor version of the show.”
Pink Floyd played live versions of The Wall in 1980 and 1981, and Waters spent the last year reviving it – but it’s always been an indoor show. “We’re going to be projecting over 140 yards,” he says. “So now it’s going to be 1,500 pixels wide. We’ve done light tests and Fenway Park and Wrigley Field and Yankee Stadium just to see what the ambient light is like. And it’s fine. It works. We’ve taken part of the Wall and the projectors into those three places.”
