PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Rocker Roger Waters performs Pink Floyd’s masterpiece “The Wall” Monday night, in the first of three elaborate shows at the Wells Fargo Center.
It’s the first time Pink Floyd’s 1979 epic double-album, The Wall, has been performed in its entirety in Philadelphia.
Comcast-Spectacor spokesman Ike Richman says the extravagant Roger Waters show also features huge puppets of the Teacher, Wife and Mother.
“People remember The Wall, the CD or the album. There are these caricatures. They come to life as 35-foot puppets. And they come up on stage, they go out into the crowd. This is a 3D show without the glasses.”
The production includes a 240-long, 35-foot-high cardboard brick wall that is built and torn down during Waters’ performance.
Some tickets are available at comcasttix.com.
They’re calling it the largest production ever at the Wells Fargo Center.
