Roger Waters is relaunching The Wall Live Tour in North America next year. And, as expected, the summer 2012 trek includes at least one previously speculated outdoor staging.
The Wall Live Tour launches its next left on May 1 at the Toyota Center in Houston, TX. Nearly 40 concerts are confirmed on the itinerary, which concludes with a July 14 performance at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, PA.
Waters will also perform on May 7 at Pepsi Center in Denver, CO; June 23 at Rogers Centre in Toronto, ON; and July 12 at Verizon Center in Washington, DC. But the most highly publicized concert on the calendar may be Waters’ June 8 stop at Wrigley Field in Chicago, IL.
For some time, reports had been swirling in the Windy City about a potential stop at the famed ballpark, which is home to the Chicago Cubs.
In a September interview with Rolling Stone, Waters named the venue as one of several where he tested a new outdoor set-up for his staging of Pink Floyd’s “The Wall.” And the other venues name-dropped by Waters in that report? Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium — both located in cities (Boston and New York City) where venue announcements are still forthcoming for the tour.
In those markets where all details are confirmed, the first public onsales are slated to begin November 14. According to LiveNation.com listings, the average price range is $55 to $200 (before fees), though prices go as low as $29 and as high as $250 in select markets.
Demand was high on the secondary market for tickets to see The Wall Live 2010. Sales were strong enough to place Waters on TicketNews’ exclusive Top Events rankings from April through December 2010.
