Bangin’ your heart against some mad bugger’s Wall

For those of us die-hard Pink Floyd fans, it’s getting less and less likely as the years go on that a Roger Waters/David Gilmour reconciliation will occur, and more importantly, that they will play together again (with Nick Mason) as Pink Floyd.  But an opportunity to see something that could be quite special has come up – Roger Waters will be doing a North American tour, and will be playing the Pink Floyd masterpiece “The Wall” album in its entirety.  He has not played this album in the U.S. in 30 years, and last played it in Berlin in 1990, following the destruction of the Berlin Wall. 

You can read all about it and see the tour dates here.

It looks like Waters will be keeping the general feel of the original “Wall” tour, utilizing the enormous stage show, building a 200+-foot wall and then breaking it down.  It would be pretty amazing to see this spectacle, I’m sure…but I’m also sure that tickets will be ridiculously expensive, which would be par for the course for all the baby-boomer artists still performing (McCartney, Springsteen, etc.)  But as this may be the last chance to see these songs live – it doesn’t look like Gilmour and Mason will be touring any time soon – it may be worth the price. 

P.S.  When is someone going to make “The Roger Waters Story” starring Richard Gere?

      Not bad…I don’t like that guy’s solo vocals though (the harmonies are nice). I have a Pink Floyd bluegrass tribute album, some of which sounds similar…
