I am pleased to announce today that Roger Waters has decided to tour again in 2010-2011. He will be touring Tthe Wall by doing 8 cities but that could change. More on this when I get it.

I really dislike him and keep saying I won't patronize him any longer, but I don't think I can pass up seeing this album in its entirety.

Seems it's just a rumor now, though it would be really cool if he did. But I don't think he will come anywhere close to where I am so I'm not sure if it really matters much for me anyway.

He probably will be doing it in Israel. He did the Dark Side of the Moon gig in Israel 3 years ago and I have to say he was more than fairly excited! So if he'll be doing it here in IL, I'll be seeing it for sure!

Cashing in on past glories. That's what rock is all about.

i LOVE the wall, but not interested in paying $300 large for the two of us to see a rehash, especially without Dave there.   And he won't be there, don't kid yourself.  He hates that album and he won't give Roger the pleasure of using the Pink Floyd name.

Roger owns the rights of Animals, The Wall and The Final Cut, so he doesn't have to use the Pink Floyd name. 

Sounds like good news though, if it's true.

I'm not saying he HAS to.  I'm saying he'd LOVE to use it if he could.  He needs Dave to use the name on tour, and that's not gonna happen.

He probably indeed does want to use it. I once saw an interview or documentary though in which I believe he said that he has left all the stuff about who deserved the rights of the name Pink Floyd behind. If I remember correctly he even admitted that David and the boys deserved it more, though he didn't seem to enjoy admitting it. Tongue

I like the Wall, but if he showed up in Atlanta I seriously doubt I would like to go to the show.
Released date are often when it it impacted you but recorded dates are when it really happened...

Indeed it is. He's definitely the man, my favorite author by some ways.

Great news if it comes about. The man is the absolute genius behind Floyd, and I was privileged to see him in London for the In The Flesh tour. I would most certainly repeat this for The Wall.

I was going to answer that with a witty response, but then I realised I had absolutely no idea what you were asking.  Well, I guess that was kind of witty...

That's good news. I'd like to see the show but what I'd really like is some new music from Roger. "Amused to Death" was a looong time ago.
