Roger Waters brings 'The Wall' to Wembley Stadium in 2013

Roger Waters brings 'The Wall' to Wembley Stadium in 2013 -

Pink Floyd's Roger Waters will be bringing his epic live production of 'The Wall' back to the UK, reports NME.

The bassist will appear at London's Wembley Stadium on 14th September (2013) as part of a 24 date European tour.

Waters said of the European dates:

"I'm extremely glad to be playing 'The Wall' in Europe again. It's going to be a lot of fun for all of us. I've reworked the show to play outdoors in large stadiums. It's really good. Even more moving, engaging, dramatic and thrilling than the arena shows.

He continued:

"I've had to rethink the whole thing about stadiums. This wide wall stadium show couldn't have been done 40 years ago. We couldn't have filled the space in a way that would have been emotionally, musically and theatrically satisfying. Technology has changed. Now we can."

'The Wall' was first performed live in 1980, following the release of the 1979 Pink Floyd album of the same name.

In 1990 Waters and producer Tony Hollingsworth created 'The Wall - Live in Berlin', to commemorate the fall of the Berlin Wall eight months earlier. Between 2010 and 2012, Waters performed the album on his worldwide tour, 'The Wall Live.' The recent shows incorporated a much wider wall with updated higher quality projected content and leading-edge projection technology.

Since 2010, 'The Wall' has already played 192 shows to over three million fans.
