35 concerts have been announced for the North American leg of Roger Waters’ The Wall Live 2010 show but, according to Billboard.com, there are to be 57 European dates too on the European leg of the tour.

Full list of Roger Waters Tour Dates Tickets

This year and next represent the 30th anniversary of the original tour which was only played in two cities in the USA (LA and NY), one in London and one in Germany and was performed only 31 times.  Hence it is quite right to play what could be Roger’s last tour in 2010 and 2011 which represents the 30th anniversaries of the North American tour in 1980 and the European ones in 1981.

Waters and his band begin “The Wall” tour on Sept. 15 in Toronto. The show, which has only been performed 31 times before, will play 36 dates in North America — including two-night stands in Chicago, Philadelphia and Los Angeles — then move on to Europe for another 57 dates beginning in March. Waters says he’d like to take the show to other territories, including South America.

Show Production Technology

Roger said, “The engineering and technology has gotten better, especially the projection techniques,” Waters notes. “We can make a very bright image across the width of the arena, which we couldn’t do before.”

The Arrangement of the Songs

On the musical end, Waters says this version of “The Wall” will be closer to the Pink Floyd performances than to the 1990 exposition at Berlin’s Potsdamer Pltaz, which had to be arranged to accommodate his special guests. “Because it’s so visual, it means playing to clicks a lot,” Waters explains. “I personally don’t mind that. I’m happy to sacrifice the freedom of guitar players flailing about, doing anythign they want, on the altar of creating a show that moves people and that’s political and so on. It’s a piece of theater, so it has to be controlled…The lighting and the visual content has to be in sync with the music that we’re making. That doesn’t worry me at all.”

Filming/DVD?

The original Wall concerts were filmed but not to a high enough standard to release as a DVD from past reports. Perhaps in the coming months, some clips of what was filmed will be shared on Roger Waters website.  That would certainly be a treat.  There are a few videos on YouTube (one posted below) of the original concerts being performed.  And there was also the “Lost Wall Documentary” filmed by a crewe member that was on sale a few years ago which showed the “behind-the-scenes” elements of The Wall tour.

Waters adds that he hasn’t thought about filming or recording during the tour but says that “it’s very unlikely we won’t film it at some point.” Pink Floyd’s production was documented aurally on “Is There Anybody Out There? The Wall Live 1980-81,” which was released in 2000.
