Waters said of the European dates:

"I'm extremely glad to be playing 'The Wall' in Europeagain. It's going to be a lot of fun for all of us. I've reworkedthe show to play outdoors in large stadiums. It's really good. Evenmore moving, engaging, dramatic and thrilling than the arenashows.

He continued:

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