Roger Waters Bringing “The Wall Live” To America In 2012

Roger Waters is bringing his live production of ‘the Wall’ back to America next year for what may be his last major tour. The Pink Floyd founder and bassist says he plans to take the show outdoors in 2012, but after a run of major American cities, he’ll likely hang up his black t-shirt for awhile. We have the full story from Ultimate Classic Rock.

“They’re trying to get me back to Europe next year,” he tells Rolling Stone in the most recent issue. “But I think I’ll be completely cooked by the end of July next year. I’m not sure I want to go out and do the greatest hits again,” he says. “What I love to do is theater in a rock & roll context. I think if I did any more in the future, it might well be smaller.”

Next year’s tour will focus on cities he didn’t get to as he traveled the United States over the past year. It’s the first time he’s tried to take the show outdoors. “We’re going to be projecting (the on-stage videos) over 140 yards,” he says. “We’ve done light tests at 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.”

No American tour dates are listed at Waters’ official website. He’ll begin the year in Australia and New Zealand before touring across South America. On Tuesday night, Waters was joined by the Foo Fighters for a performance of the track ‘In the Flesh?’ on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.’
