The last time Roger Waters pulled a big marketing stunt, it made a lot of people really mad -- so I'm not at all surprised that the piggy bank that showed up yesterday at the New Times building proves that Waters isn't into desecrating sad-indie kid memorials every time he tours.
Nope -- this little oinker, stuffed with pretend payola and marked up with Roger Water' The Wall Live on one side and May 15 on the other-- is pretty harmless, and a cool way to announce his May 15, 2012, appearance at US Airways Center concert date.
Tickets go on sale Monday, November 14, at 10 AM. You can pick 'em up over at Livenation, and while you're at it, "Run Like Hell" and leave them kids alone and all of that.
Remember that scene in Squid and the Whale where Jesse Eisenberg sings "Hey You?" Jeez, that movie is depressing.
