Roger Waters Announces Super Deluxe Edition of ‘The Wall’ Concert Film
This edition, available exclusively through Waters' website and scheduled to ship in early 2016, comes in a lavishly designed triple-gatefold package that boasts hand-applied graphics and measures more than five feet across when fully opened. Inside, fans will find the film's score — newly composed by Waters and available only as part of this set — and soundtrack spread across four LPs of 180-gram colored vinyl, each with a unique engraving.
The box also bundles in a two-CD set containing the soundtrack, as well as three Blu-ray discs featuring the complete film as well as an array of bonus material that includes a new documentary, a Q&A session with Waters' former Pink Floyd bandmate Nick Mason and footage from Waters' 2011 concert performance alongside Mason and David Gilmour.
In addition to the wealth of audiovisual content, the super deluxe edition of Roger Waters The Wall also includes a download code for digital soundtrack files, as well as a 170-page hardcover book that offers full-color backstage and live photos taken throughout the tour documented in the film.
Even though the boxes won't go out until next year, Waters has taken pains to ensure that those who purchase them as holiday gifts will have something more than a receipt to show for it: Pre-orders come with a "special hardcover save-the-date folio that contains two art prints," shipping in November.
Roger Waters The Wall: Super Deluxe Edition lists for $500, and is available for pre-order through Waters' site now.
