Roger Waters, co-founder of the seminal progressive rock band Pink Floyd, will come to the XL Center of Hartford to play “The Wall Live”, a re-production of Pink Floyd’s 1979 album and 1982 live-action musical of the same name. With the aid of state-of-the-art stage production, some of history’s most influential and well-known progressive rock will be recreated in a show that has consistently sold-out and wowed audiences across the globe.
Waters recalls, “Thirty years ago when I wrote ‘The Wall,’ I was a frightened young man. In the intervening years it occurred to me that maybe the story of my fear and loss with its concomitant inevitable residue of ridicule, shame and punishment, provides an allegory for broader concerns: Nationalism, racism, sexism, religion, whatever! All these issues and ‘isms are driven by the same fears that drove my young life.”
In addition to Waters, the touring ensemble features: Snowy White (Guitar), Dave Kilminster (Guitar), GE Smith (Guitar & Bass), Jon Carin (Keyboards), Harry Waters (Hammond Organ), Graham Broad (Drums), Robbie Wyckoff (Vocals), Jon Joyce, Pat Lennon, Mark Lennon and Kipp Lennon (Backing Vocals).
