Roger Waters and The Wall (more)
Roger Waters

As a 34 year old living in the best fucking city in the fucking world, I should be overflowing with the zeal and stamina to go out 5 or 6 nights a week and still show up to work on time and kick ass. And yet, that isn't really the case. I am like a big stupid elephant who decides to sit on his keyster in the middle of a circus performance and refuses to move no matter how much cruel the whipping and prodding he is faced with (note: circuses suck) (unbridled animal cruelty) (Occupy Ringling).

The sedentary habits I've developed don't really bother me; I go out and tear it up when it's worth the hassle. But then I get a message yesterday that 68 year old geezer Roger Waters is about to drag The Wall tour all over the US AGAIN in 2012 and am reminded of the words of Lloyd Christmas, "Man, you are one pathetic loser!"

To date, he's played this damned show like 120 times the world around! Sigh. Annnnnnyyywhoozle, The 2012 Wall Tour kicks off in Australia on January 27th for several dates and from there hits New Zealand. Then heads over to South America for a ton of dates and then *BAM* the tour lands in Houston Texas on May 1st, winds it's way across the US until the tour wraps in Philadelphia on July 14th. New York Fuckin' City will be graced with this impossibly expensive monstrosity on July 6th, 2012 at a venue TBD. I wonder what venue in NYC could possibly house such an elaborate show? My guess in Mercury Lounge. The presale begins today.

And hey, McDuck, while you're dusting off your sheckles to buy tickets to this show, which I am guessing will have the good seats in the $300 range, why not spit shine a few more and get the Why Pink Floyd Discovery Edition Boxed Set too?

All tour dates are listed below.

1018am started reading BV after his hipster friend from Iowa migrated to Hipsterville last year.

If you've been reading BV for more than a year, you should know that KK has been contributing to this blog for a long time.

Now go back to listening to your garbage music.

Exactly. The bowel movements of Roger Waters have more credibility that this whiny know-nothing.

Side note - any of you guys hear the new remasters? Pretty damn good job, I think. I got Animals, and it's so clear and crisp, it's like a new album.

When Roger tears down the wall, the Michael Jackson Thriller dancing zombie army should emerge and throw down to a disco beat

I'd go to T5 to see that

you people are pathetic. You will never be doing anything this interesting at 68. As a bonus, you will never have contributed anything at all to the culture. haters gonna hate. this will be one of the last chances to see a legend. have fun at your TuNeYaRdS show or jerking it to old da

Went last year. Not gonna pay anothr $100 to see Waters lip sync The Wall again.

10:34 can suck on my 3.5 inches of manlove. I need to listen to a 68 year old rehash his glory years about as much as I need to watch videotapes of Uncle Rico thoroughgoing the football some field. GOSH!

He already said in Rolling Stone with Dark Side on the cover he's doing Yankee Stadium.

Not only is he doing it there, he went to Yankee Stadium with his crew and they did lighting tests to confirm they could do this in a baseball stadium.

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 10:57 AM

this tour has become ubiquitous, to be sure, but if you haven't seen it, it's pretty dope. i would rather he do dark side in its entirety again.

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 11:01 AM

It's not that we mind, or at least that a lot of us mind, that he's out rockin' at 68. Lots of kids are: Neil Young, Keith Richards, Tom Waits, etc. The difference is he's rockin' out to an album that was out ... how many years ago? Milking It. Cash Cow. Pixies's Blueprint. Call it whatever you want. I don't mind him playing old songs. But FUCK YOU ROGER WATERS if all you're going to do is play the same fucking album that I listened to when I was in high school.

July 6th at MSG???

That's the date I saw Floyd at the same arena - in 1977.

Yankee Stadium on July 6. This was all over the news, how did you miss this Klaus!

Anyway, Yankees don't play any games at home between July 1 and July 13 because of a road trip and the All-Star break, so the date makes perfect sense.

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 1:35 PM

I saw the show last year (thankfully, for free). Great expensive production, with a lip-synching-phoning-it-in Roger. No thanks.

Uh, like Pink Floyd?

Yeah, you're right, Tune-Yards and Best Coast and Lana Del Rey have accomplished much more.

Pussies, the whole lot of ya! Waters at 68 is still more relevant than your shameful lives. Pathetic fuckers!

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 1:47 PM

Serious question though, to both Klaus and BBG alike.

Why post things like this if you're just going to shit on them like that? Why waste your time? Why not post about something you think is more relevant? Is it only to showcase how "hip" and "in-the-now" you are?

Reminds me of middle school.

I just bought 5 tickets this morning for myself, husband, sister and parents. Paid $275 each and it is worth every penny. The reason why he has done so many shows and continues to tour is becuase the music is some of the best music ever made. It crosses over generations. I would love to know what music the people on this blog would pay to see? Dave Matthews, Beyonce? You ask who gives a F? The millions of people who are paying to see Roger Waters, one of the greatest performers ever. You are all clueless at to what good music is.

I am most certainly neither of these things.

Posted by Klaus Kinski | November 2, 2011 2:18 PM

1:48: I'd replace "Klaus and BBG" with "BV loser commenters" and the "middle" with "elementary". Otherwise, I agree.


Oh, and sorry 12:57. Nobody believes that "SOLD OUT!" shit on BV comments anymore. Time for a life.

I saw this show last year and it was extremely well done and very much worth seeing, although clearly as punctuation mark at the end of a noteworthy musician's career. I can see no reason why he should not seize the opportunity to play to sellout crowds around the world as long as there are people who want to enjoy the show. He seems in a much better position to enjoy his relationship to his audience than when he was a dramatic 30-something whiner—and, to his credit, he acknowledges during the show that maybe he was a bit ridiculous to complain about the burdens of being a millionaire rock star. I'd put this in my top five concerts along with some very small scale intimate shows (Kings of Convenience with 200 people). There are only two kinds of shows, good and bad, and I would argue that this show is firmly in the "good" camp, unless you just do not care for the music or the bombast of the show. Which is fine.

2:18 -- but Klaus, a significant portion of your listings here are all self-indulgent paragraphs about YOU. Not the artists or the venues or music. It's all just "Me! Me! Me!" You have potential though. Hang in there.
