Roger Waters Announces 2012 Tour Dates for “The Wall”

Roger Waters: The WallRoger Waters has announced North American tour dates for his production of “The Wall” for 2012. The 36-stop tour begins May 1st, 2012 in Houston, Texas and will include several outdoor stadium concerts at venues including Chicago’s Wrigley Field and Toronto’s Rogers Centre.

Waters, who revived the show in 2010 and has performed it over 120 times since then, says the show is just as relevant today as it was when he wrote it three decades ago.

“Thirty years ago when I wrote ‘The Wall,’ I was a frightened young man,” Waters said. “In the intervening years it occurred to me that maybe the story of my fear and loss with its concomitant inevitable residue of ridicule, shame and punishment, provides an allegory for broader concerns: Nationalism, racism, sexism, religion, whatever! All these issues and ‘isms are driven by the same fears that drove my young life.”
