Waters bringing ‘Wall’ to Canada
Roger Waters will build his Wall across Canada next summer.
The former Pink Floyd bassist is bringing the latest incarnation of his acclaimed rock opera north of the border for six performances in May and June of 2012, according to online reports.
The Wall Live will begin its Canadian run with three Western Canada shows in May, then wrap up with a trio of Eastern Canada shows a month later.
Tickets go on sale Mon., Nov. 14 at Ticketmaster, and they’ll set you back between $45 and $270, depending on the city, venue and seating.
Released in 1979, Pink Floyd’s double album The Wall — along with its accompanying live show, which features the construction of a massive wall between the audience and the performers — was meant to reflect Waters’ growing alienation from his listeners. It was sparked by an incident during a Montreal concert in 1977, when the bassist spat in the face of a fan. Waters’ latest incarnation of the show — which does not include any other members of Pink Floyd — has been earning rave reviews for its massive production and visuals. The Wall is being reissued once again early next year as part of the ongoing Why Pink Floyd? series.
