Roger Waters Presents The Wall at US Airways Center, 5/15/12

The spectacle that is Roger Waters' The Wall tour deserves more than a cursory run through. The concert is as much theater and cutting edge theatrics as it is a musical production, and each aspect deserves--requires--equal respect as the masterful merging of sound, imagery and imagination went off without a hitch.

For those not familiar with Pink Floyd's double album The Wall, released in 1979, the story chronicles a fading, troubled rock star dealing with issues of childhood and authority, but with misguided visions of leading a fascist-styled authoritarian society. Pink, as he's known, builds a wall to hold it all in before eventually breaking out in a return to sanity. Read the full Roger Waters' The Wall tour review by Glenn Burnsilver.
