Live music, grand projections and visual effects, they’ll all be part of a live production of “The Daddy” of concept albums The Wall, by Pink Floyd. Founding band member Roger Waters will lead the live performance of The Wall in Piata Constitutiei on August 28, next year. The performance in Bucharest is part of a second tour of The Wall by Roger Waters, after he broke records in 2010 with over 3.3 million spectators at 192 concerts in Europe, Australia and the Americas.
The cult album was the last recorded by the classic Pink Floyd line up of Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Richard Wright and Nick Mason, who had become one of the most successful rock acts of the 70s with albums like Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here. Keyboard player Richard Wright left the band immediately after The Wall’s release in 1979. The remaining members produced one further album – The Final Cut – and split soon afterwards.
A film version of The Wall was made featured a mixture of live action and marvelously disturbing animation by Gerald Scarfe. The film was shown at the Cannes Film Festival and starred Irish punk rock singer Bob Geldof, who later led the Band Aid and Live Aid charity concerts.
The Wall cemented its place in history when Roger Waters performed the album in Berlin to 200,000 people in the immediate aftermath of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. Surviving members of Pink Floyd David Gilmour and Nick Mason joined Roger Waters for his performance sof The Wall in London during the 2010/11 World Tour.
The tickets for the concert are on sale on www.MyTicket.ro, starting November 16, and will later be available in stores.
