Roger Waters Resurrects The Wall

Remember last May when Roger Waters announced that the July 21 show in Quebec City would be the end of not only The Wall tour but also his touring career?

Well, no so fast.

Waters will resurrect The Wall once again next summer to take it on the road to large venues around Europe. The new tour starts July 20 in Werchter, Belgium and runs through September 18 in Dublin, Ireland. That’s thirty more shows to add to the 192 that he has already done.

Waters said “I’m extremely glad to be playing The Wall in Europe again. It’s going to be a lot of fun for all of us. I’ve reworked the show to play outdoors in large stadiums. It’s really good. Even more moving, engaging, dramatic and thrilling than the arena shows.

“I’ve had to rethink the whole thing about stadiums. This wide wall stadium show couldn’t have been done 40 years ago. We couldn’t have filled the space in a way that would have been emotionally, musically and theatrically satisfying. Technology has changed. Now we can.”

The dates:

  • 07/20 – Werchter, Belgium – Festival Site
  • 07/23 – Split, Croatia – Poljud Stadium
  • 07/26 – Padova, Italy – Stadio Euganeo
  • 07/28 – Rome, Italy – Olympic Stadium

  • 08/17 – Goteborg, Sweden – Ullevi Stadium
  • 08/20 – Warsaw, Poland – Narodowy Stadium
  • 08/23 – Vienna, Austria – Donauinsel
  • 08/25 – Budapest, Hungary – Puskas Ferenc Stadium
  • 08/28 – Bucharest, Romania – Piata Constitutiei
  • 08/30 – Sofia, Bulgaria – Levski Stadium
  • 09/01 – Belgrade, Serbia – USCE Park
  • 09/04 – Berlin, Germany – Olympic Stadium
