It remains to be seen whether or not Donald Trump will get the “big, lovely wall” he is advocated constructing between the US and Mexico. But if nothing else, he has given Waters an idea.
Euro News reports that during an appearance with his fellow Pink Floyd co-founder Nick Mason to promote Their Mortal Remains, a multimedia exhibit created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the band’s “Arnold Layne” single, Roger Waters stated he was considering a performance of Pink Floyd’s classic The Wall at the U.S.-Mexico border.
However earlier than he is willing to entertain the idea seriously, Roger Waters seemed to indicate he’d must see proof of a substantial groundswell of resistance against the idea of walling off the US against its southern neighbor. “Before this can occur, there’ll first should be an awakening against these far-right policies,” he told reporters. “The sewers are engorged by greedy and powerful men as I speak to you.”Get Our APP
As followers are no doubt aware, the idea of performing The Wall near an actual wall is nothing new. Roger Waters notably did it in 1990 in Berlin, eight months after the fall of the Berlin Wall, leading an all-star lineup via a performance later commemorated with an album and movie. He’s since run via the LP live many times through the years, most lately via a lengthy tour later captured in a documentary.
Even if he doesn’t stage The Wall again, Waters has no shortage of issues to keep him busy this yr. Apart from plotting a North American tour, he’s readying the release of Is This the Life We Really Want?, his first solo LP in years — and he also recently expressed a willingness to reunite with fellow Pink Floyd survivors Nick Mason and David Gilmour.
