Roger Waters, co-founder and main composer of the legendary band of Pink Floyd is returning the upcoming summer in Greece, and will include the audiovisual masterpiece The Wall in his show on July 31 at the Olympic Stadium in Athens. Greeks last saw him in 2011 when he performed the signature piece.
The show is part of his tour that will travel to 25 stadiums around the world, including Wembley Stadium in London, Stade de France in Paris, the Olympic Stadium in Rome, Amsterdam Arena, and the Olympic Stadium in Berlin.
The original presentation of the show was introduced for the first time on 1980 through 29 performances, as part of the tour of the group to promote the group’s album by the same name. They went to Berlin to celebrate the demolition of the Berlin Wall in 1989 that had divided East and West Berlin for more than four decades. The Wall is widely considered as one of the most successful tours in the history of rock music, including 192 shows and 3, 3 million spectators from around the globe.
In 2010, Waters resurrected the show and the feeling of the play in order it to be in line with the current era but at the same time to retain its authentically theatrical magic. With the assistance of modern technological breakthroughs and digital effects, he has managed to redefine the stage presentation of The Wall, which has had many sold-out shows around the world, including nine consecutive performances at River Plate stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
