]Roger Waters, co-founder and principal songwriter of the archetypal progressive band Pink Floyd, is commemorating the 30th anniversary of the original release of The Wall with a monumental tour featuring a full band and a newly-mounted state-of-the-art production of his epochal masterpiece of alienation and transformation performed in its entirety.  Roger Waters: The Wall Live comes to The Palace on Sunday, October 24 at 8 p.m.

Up to date details on Roger Waters’ The Wall Tour, and more, may be found on the artist’s newly relaunched and redesigned website, RogerWaters.com.  Waters is personally involved with the site and will be communicating with fans through it.

The Wall has been previously performed live in its entirety by Waters just 31 times including Pink Floyd’s 1980-81 tour in support of the album.  A spectacular Roger Waters solo staging and performance of the rock opera in July 1990, celebrating the fall of the Berlin Wall, drew nearly a half million fans to the Potsdamer Platz.

The New York Times (March 2, 1980) declared, “The Wall show remains a milestone in rock history, it will be the touchstone against which all future rock spectacles must be measured.”

Originally released in November 1979, The Wall was America’s top-selling album of 1980, is one of the top-selling double albums of all time, and is still in the U.S. Top 5 best-selling albums of all time.

The Wall was made into a metaphorical musical film, directed by Alan Parker with screenplay by Roger Waters, in 1982.

One of the most profoundly influential albums in the history of recorded music, The Wall continues to affect pop culture while resonating with generations of music fans.
