Roger Waters to Bring The Wall Back to U.S. in 2012

Roger WatersRoger Waters will be bringing The Wall tour back to the U.S. in 2012, according to his latest interview with Rolling Stone. Though dates have not been announced, the former Pink Floyd bassist says there are parts of the country they missed and plan to visit.

“There are quite a few markets we didn’t cover last time, like Austin,” he said. “But we want to base the tour around Saturday nights in baseball stadiums… We’ve done light tests and Fenway Park and Wrigley Field and Yankee Stadium just to see what the ambient light is like. And it’s fine. It works. We’ve taken part of the Wall and the projectors into those three places.”

Waters’ latest reincarnation of the 1979 album began September of last year, and the 68-year old rocker says after the next year’s leg of the tour he’ll be beat.

“They’re trying to get me back to Europe next year,” he said, “But I think I’ll be completely cooked by the end of July next year.”
