It was the unthinkable. Roger Waters, the creative force behind Pink Floyd's 'The Wall,' was left out of the band's mid-80s reunion. The group initially split in 1983, but David Gilmour and Nick Mason got the itch to reunite two years later. They added exiled keyboardist Richard Wright, which left one stumbling block.
Roger Waters has been crossing the borders on ‘The Wall’ tour since 2010 and now he’s planning to go out in smashing fashion. While the tour was originally scheduled to wrap up in Philadelphia on July 14, Waters has had a change of plans, adding another brick in the wall.

Former Pink Floyd rocker Roger Waters has already announced a bunch of dates for his 'The Wall' North American summer trek, which is scheduled to kick off May 1 in Houston and run through a July 14 gig in Philadelphia.

It almost seems like destiny that 'The Wall' would be performed next to the wall.
In a recent edition of our Celebrity Look-Alike feature, we commented on the resemblance between Roger Waters and big-time Hollywood actor Richard Gere. Apparently, we weren't the only ones who noticed this. On Waters' recent visit to the Howard Stern show, the talk show host brought up their facial similarities, but the Pink Floyd legend doesn't seem to agree.
Just as he announced he would late last year, Pink Floyd's Roger Waters has tied the knot with his longtime fiancee, filmmaker Laurie Durning. The two were married last Saturday (Jan. 14) during a ceremony at their home in Southampton, New York, in front of just six guests.
As 2011 draws to a close, Billboard has released its list of the year's top-grossing tours -- and while veteran acts didn't dominate the box office as heavily as they have in recent years, plenty of classic rockers spent the year playing to sold out arenas.
