Up until recently, the only wall allowed in Boston's Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, was the mighty Green Monster. That is until yesterday (July 1) when Roger Waters rolled in with a wall of his own. Building 'The Wall' of the Pink Floyd era double album variety in the historic ball park, Waters made quick work of the legendary stadium, making it his own musical playground.
While he might be currently looking in the rear view mirror, celebrating the legacy of Pink Floyd’s classic ‘The Wall’ album, the experience has put Roger Waters in the planning mode for a new solo album, which would be his first proper solo release since 1990’s ‘Amused to Death.’
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.
As Pink Floyd's Roger Waters played around South America on his 'The Wall' tour, the newlywed sold out nine shows at River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires, breaking the previous five-night record set by the Rolling Stones.
Pink Floyd's new massive "Immersion Edition" box set edition of their 1979 album 'The Wall' offers a wealth of new demo material that reveals tantalizing clues as to how the epic concept album was shaped.
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. But one show that has not yet been revealed is a much-rumored stop at Boston's Fenway Park, where 'The Wall' would fit in quite nicely next to the ballpark's famed 37-foot-tall wall in left field known as the Green Monster. It almost seems like destiny that 'The Wall' would be performed next to the wall.
