As part of an epic three-year world tour Roger Waters, leader of legendary psychedelic rock band Pink Floyd, will play in Warsaw, where he will perform the band’s iconic album “The Wall” in its entirety.
The concerts in this tour mark the first time since 1990 that audiences have been treated to the entire album played live, along with stunning visual effects and stage performances.
The show has been revamped for the world’s biggest arenas and stadiums. Previously Mr Waters had refused to regularly perform the entire album live, since he deemed the technology needed to fulfill his vision either non-existent or too expensive.
Realizing that vision has not come cheap. The first part of the tour was estimated at a cost of up to $60 million. That amount has surely increased, as new shows are continuously added, with over 200 shows played worldwide. The Warsaw show will be one of the last few announced so far, with the current leg of the tour ending on September 21 in Portugal.
Each show consumes 3,000 amps of power and uses some 20 miles of cable; 23 projectors beam high-definition visuals onto a huge screen that is 240 feet wide and 25 feet high.
Mr Waters and accompanying musicians will play every song from the 1979 album, as well as a few more that were not included in the original release but which are in line with the anti-war message of the album.
