Another brick in "The Wall" will be built on October 24th at the Palace of Auburn Hills. That's when Roger Waters will bring his North American tour production of Pink Floyd's multi-platinum 1979 concept album to town, featuring a 240-foot-wide and 35-foot-tall wall that will be constructed and subsequently knocked down during the concerts. Waters is re-launching is web site, www.rogerwaters.com, at 2 p.m. Monday (April 12) with ticket sale information for the tour, which begins September 15th in Toronto. Prior to the tour, "The Wall" has only been performed in its entiretly 31 times -- 30 by Pink Floyd during limited runs in the U.S., England and Germany during 1980-81 and in July of 1990 by Waters in Germany, whose all-star presentation celebrated the 10th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. The North American tour will encompass 36 dates, and Waters is planning to take the show to Europe starting in March. Released in November of 1979, "The Wall" -- which focuses on a disaffected young musician facing an existential personal crisis that reflected Waters' state of mind at the time -- spent 15 weeks atop the Billboard 200 chart and has been certified 23-times platinum and won a Grammy Award for Best Engineered Recording -- Non-Classical.
