Roger Waters' Tour comes to the St. Pete Times Forum Next Tuesday
Limited number of seats remain!
TAMPA BAY – Roger Waters, co-founder and principal songwriter of the archetypal progressive band Pink Floyd, is commemorating the 30th anniversary of the original release of The Wall with a monumental tour featuring a full band and a newly-mounted state-of-the-art production. This colossal event comes to the St. Pete Times Forum next Tuesday, November 16at 8:00 p.m.
The Wall has been previously performed live in its entirety by Waters just 31 times, including Pink Floyd's 1980-81 tour in support of the album. A spectacular Roger Waters solo staging and performance of the rock opera in July 1990, celebrating the fall of the Berlin Wall, drew nearly a half million fans to the Potsdamer Platz.
Aaron Leitko of The Washington Post recently reviewed the Roger Waters’ The Wall North American Tour and said, “[f]orget the Blu-ray, the DVD, the planetarium laser-light show -- the arena is the superior format for “The Wall.”
Originally released in November 1979, The Wall was America's top-selling album of 1980, is one of the top-selling double albums of all time and is still in the U.S. Top 5 best-selling albums of all time. The Wall was made into a metaphorical musical film, directed by Alan Parker with screenplay by Roger Waters, in 1982. One of the most profoundly influential albums in the history of recorded music, The Wall continues to affect pop culture while resonating with generations of music fans.
