As rumored in recent months, Roger Waters is taking Pink Floyd's "The Wall" on the road this fall for a 36-date North American tour starting Sept. 15 in Toronto and wrapping Dec. 13 in Anaheim.

Prior to this, the 1979 concept album has only been performed 31 times - by Pink Floyd in 1980-81 with limited engagements in Los Angeles, London, Uniondale, N.Y. and Dortmund, West Germany, and an all-star presentation by Waters in July of 1990 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.


Waters, who played "The Dark Side Of The Moon" in its entirety during 2007-08, will reportedly take "The Wall" to Europe in 2011, but no dates have yet been announced.

The show will be a state-of-the art affair, featuring a 240-foot-wide and 35-foot-tall wall constructed and subsequently torn down during the concerts. Other props and special effects are expected to be part of the show as well.

Waters is re-launching his official web site at 2 p.m. today with ticket sale information.

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.

I'd personally prefer a Gilmour tour, but still, if Waters comes to Europe in 2011 I'll go and see the show!
