Roger Waters to bring The Wall to Wembley (2013)
Story by Jack Foley
ROGER Waters has announced thereturn of the historic production of The Wall at London’s Wembley Stadium on September 14, 2013, plus 24 dates in Europe during 2013.
His aural and visual masterpiece of alienation and transformation will be performed in its entirety featuring a full band and state-of-the-art production.
The Wall live has played 192 shows around the world to more than 3.3 million fans making it one of the most successful tours in rock history.
Roger Waters tickets go on-sale at 9am on Wednesday, November 21.
For these large open air stadiums, Roger Waters has re-designed and scaled up The Wall show to create the ultimate stadium event, bringing The Wall experience even closer to fans wherever they are sitting and making the production even more encompassing in large venues.
Roger Waters says: “I’m extremely glad to be playing The Wall in Europe again. It’s going to be a lot of fun for all of us. 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. I’ve had to rethink the whole thing about stadiums. This wide wall 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.”
The Wall will be at London’s Wembley Stadium on Saturday, September 14, 2013.
