According to Billboard, Pink Floyd's Roger Waters is performing the band's legendary album The Wall in full this fall -- and the tour is coming to St. Louis. The date is October 29 at Scottrade Center; info should be up on his official website in a few hours. The Billboard article says:
Prior to this, the 1979 concept album has only been performed 31 times -- by PInk Floyd in 1980-81 with limited engagements in Los Angeles, London, Uniondale, N.Y. and Dortmund, West Germany, and an all-star presentation by Waters in July of 1990 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Waters, who played The Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety during 2007-08, will reportedly take The Wall to Europe in 2011, but no dates have yet been announced.
The show will be a state-of-the art affair, featuring a 240-foot-wide and 35-foot-tall wall constructed and subsequently torn down during the concerts. Other props and special effects are expected to be part of the show as well.
