Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters will bring 'The Wall Live' concert tour to Athens for two nights on July 8-9, at the city's OAKA indoor basketball stadium.
The worldwide tour was designed and created by Waters to mark the 30th anniversary since Pink Floyd released their block-buster album "The Wall" and will be his last after the "Dark Side of the Moon" tour in 2007-2008 that also passed through Greece.
The 'Wall Live' tour began last September in Toronto and has already racked by 56 tour dates in North America. It is now on its European leg, which began last March, with a total of 62 appearances scheduled on the programme. Waters has also expressed a desire to extend the tour to other areas, including Latin America.
The show is considered comparable to performances by Pink Floyd in 1980 but also the all-star concert held in July 1990 to celebrate the fall of the Berlin Wall. The central element is a real wall about 74 metres long and 11 metres high which is built during the first half of the show to be demolished shortly before the end.
One of the big surprises of the July 8 concert is that the specific show will be among the few that will be recorded for release as a video. For this reason, the audience are forbidden from bringing cameras or cell-phones with them, or they will be denied entrance into the stadium. The only other performances that will be recorded on the tour are the ones at the O2 in London.
Tickets for the show can be obtained at Ticket House in Athens (42 Panepistimiou Street Arcade) and Music Land in Thessaloniki (102 Mitropoleos Street).
Prices will range from 55 euros in the upper tier, 65 euro in the arena, 88 euros in the lower tier and 145 euros in the VIP area.
