Technical Problems With Roger Waters 2nd Oslo Show For the first time on Roger Waters Wall tour, technical problems have briefly stopped a show. It happened on 1 May at the Telenor Arena, Oslo, Norway when the ‘Hotel Room’ failed to open. Roger stumbled around on the stage in darkness until a spotlight managed to pick him out. He then launched into ad lib telling the packed crowd funny stories and generally filled in time. They were unable to rectify the problem, so improvisation was the order of the day! You can see video of the incident in our Dedicated Tour Room (Added 2 May)

Roger Waters Show Shuffles & Greece Gets Lucky! It’s been officially announced that due to an opportunity to film The Wall in Greece in early July, two of the Milan concerts originally planned for July 6th and 7th have been rescheduled. Instructions for the rescheduled dates are: Keep your existing tickets which are automatically valid for the new dates. Tickets for the July 6th show are now valid for the July 3rd show.

Roger Waters Creates Controversy In Holland It’s been reported that many fans at Roger Waters Wall shows in Holland were in shock at the shows on the 9th & 11th April when Roger produced an imitation machine gun and pointed it at the audience. (This we might add is a normal part of the show). Sadly however, on Saturday the 9th a crazed gunman killed 6 people in the Ridderhof Mall in the town of Alphen 13 miles southwest of Amsterdam by opening fire using a machine gun. Apparently some of the Dutch media were not impressed calling Roger ‘Shameful’ & ‘Insensitive’. It is not known at this time if Roger was aware of the tragedy prior to the show/s. (Added 12th April)

Venice & Co Special Show What do backing vocalist on Roger’s Wall tour do on their day off? Why perform a show of their own of course, that’s what! Venice played a gig in the Melkweg, Amsterdam on 10 April and performed The Show Must Go On & Goodbye Blue Sky. They were joined on stage by Robbie Wykoff, John Joyce and Jon Carin on guitar.(Thanks to Arvid Van Kasteel for the heads up) (Added 11 April)

The Wall – Australia & South America A reliable source has told us that plans to bring Roger Waters Wall show to Australia in September/October this year have been put on hold, and that the tour won’t get down under until next year. (Another source has suggested February but we can’t confirm this). We can also reveal that Roger is planning to tour South America next year and that the height and length of the wall will be TWICE the size! (Presumably for stadiums as opposed to arenas) Remember where you read this first.. We understand also that the last wall shows this year will be in July and that there are no plans to perform it elsewhere until 2012. (26 March).

(The first show is in Lisbon on 21 March) We also understand that merchandise is currently being updated and manufacturing is in full swing. Another tid-bit of info is that Roger has stated on his Facebook page that not only is he planning a Blu-ray release of the tour but there will also be a Theatrical release. Can we also please ask you to stop emailing us about if we have heard anything more about (a) Greece (b) Australia (c) South America. If we knew anything more you would read about it here! Don’t forget if you are going to any of the shows, please get pictures (switch the flash off!) reviews, links to video clips and anything else to us as soon as possible after the show.

Roger Waters 2011 Tour Dates Imminent? It’s understood (although not official) that the dates & venues of Roger Waters 2011 leg of his Wall tour are about to be announced. The 2011 tour is expected to kick off in March and go through to June. We have been told (again unofficially) that Roger’s London shows will be sometime in the UK spring and that they will be at the O2 Arena and not Earls Court. Again we stress that this news is all unofficial. Keep checking daily, the minute those dates are released you will read about them here. (27 May) UPDATE See above, our info was bang on once again!

Doubts Cast Over The Wall In South America We know that there are many many people wanting to know more details about the second leg of Roger Waters Wall tour of Europe and other parts of the world. To date unfortunately there is still very little information to be had. We can however tell you that on a recent visit to Buenos Aires, Argentina, Jon Carin told AFG correspondent Martin Sciaccaluga that it would be very difficult to bring the show to South America and that it’s unlikely that the show would travel there. He said the problem was that there are not many arenas to support the infrastructure of the show, although he added Roger was eager to tour there. Regular readers will recall that Roger said in an interview with BILLBOARD in April that ‘he’d like to take the show to other territories, including South America’. You can be sure that as soon as anything regarding the second leg of the tour is announced that you will read it here in record time! (16 May)
