2012 Rest Of World

2013 Tour We have had a ton of emails asking us about where Roger will be playing his Wall shows next year in Europe. We wish to stress that nothing is finalized at the moment but Roger is DEFINITELY heading in that direction. The cities whispered below in the previous article are NOT CONFIRMED and should not be relied upon at this time. Col (From AFG) was back stage at the Yankee Stadium show (6th July) and his review contains lots on interesting hints about next years tour. CHECK IT OUT


Roger For Europe 2013? Rumours are running hot that Roger Waters will take his Wall show back to Europe in 2013, playing stadiums, or so we are told. We wish to stress that at this time this is purely a RUMOUR, so please don’t start making travel arrangements just yet! (Added 19 June) UPDATE!!! Although still not official it’s almost certain that Roger will be touring Europe with his wall show in 2013. Tour dates will be announced here as soon as they become available. (Updated 26 June) WHISPERS ONLY!!! Vienna – Austria/ Götheburg – Sweden/ Bergen – Norway/ Horsens – Denmark/ Warsaw – Poland/ Brussels – Belgium/ Amsterdam – The Netherlands/ Frankfurt – Germany/ Rome – Italy/ Bern – Switzerland/ Paris -France/ London – UK (Updated 30 June) UPDATE July 7 Roger confirms he is looking at Europe late summer 2013 )

Harry Waters Solo Show Following on from the smash success of his solo show in Buenos Aires in March, Harry Waters has now announced he will be performing at Ft Lauderdale on the 18th June in between the Wall shows. This will be bigger than his last few solo shows and will be a fundraising event for a community arts project. Live Nation are behind this one and tickets will be available on Ticketmaster at $20 each. The boys from Venice will be appearing too along with Robbie and a couple of other people. (With thanks to Simon Wimpenny for the heads up)

The Wall Live In Québec City One more date has been added to Roger Waters’ The Wall Live tour. On July 21, Roger will perform at Les Plaines D’Abraham in Québec City, QC. This will be an outdoor show on the historic Plains of Abraham.(where the English and French fought in 1759). Capacity is expected to be the largest of the tour, as Metallica managed to pack in 110,000 at a concert there in 2011 and no doubt Roger will equal that number (Which is the maximum allowed). Full details of this special concert event will be announced at a Press Conference in Quebec City on Tuesday 22nd May at 4-30p.m. local time. Pre-sale tickets will be available soon after that from RogerWaters.com (Added 19 May)

Sorry Europe! There have been a lot of rumours flying around for some time now that Roger Waters would take his stunning Wall show back to Europe in 2012 (after he finishes his North American tour). We put this directly to Mark Fenwick (Roger’s Manager) who has confirmed to us that Roger WILL NOT be touring Europe in 2012. (and if you heard the rumour of a Wish You Were Here tour in 2013 you can forget that as well). (Added 11 Nov)

Roger Waters 2012 Dates Latest There’s been a lot of changing around with Roger’s Los Angeles date & venue. First it was to be on the 19th May at the USC then it went to May 18th (with venue TBA) but now, judging by what Roger Waters himself said, when he phoned in on DJ Jim Ladd’s farewell broadcast, it’s now to be on 19th May at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena! We are still waiting on final confirmation of that but we reckon if anybody should know it’s Roger. ALSO a second Santiago Chile show has been announced for March 3 at the Estadio Nacional. (Added 5 Nov updated 6 & 7 Nov) FURTHER UPDATE Here we go again! There is now doubt that Roger will be able to take his Wall show to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena on 19th May (as stated by Roger) due to the stadium’s $156 million renovation. (Read Story) If so, that still leaves the Los Angeles concert without a date & venue! We are following up on this and hope to have more news soon.RESOLVED! We have just had official confirmation that the Los Angeles show will be on 19th May at the Memorial Coliseum. Isn’t this where we came in? (Added 10 Nov)

Spot On AFG! Well we did it again! The Roger Waters Wall North American tour dates we published back on 27/28 October have just about all been confirmed (Remember we made the announcement at least 4 days before they were officially released). We note that the gig for May 19th that we have listed for Memorial Coliseum (LA) is listed as TBA in the official announcement. Likewise the gigs we have listed for July 1st (Boston Fenway) & July 6th (NY Yankee Stadium) are also listed officially as TBA. We will update you on these venues when made official but in the meantime we will treat them as ‘unofficial’. The official announcement also contained the Canadian dates, and these are as follows.

May 26 Vancouver – BC Place
May 28 Edmonton – Rexall Place
May 31 Winnipeg – MTS Center
June 23 Toronto – Rogers Centre
June 25 Ottawa – Scotiabank Place
June 26 Montréal – Bell Centre

Many RogerWaters.com presales for the North American dates will begin on Nov 7th and will be on general sale as from 10am on Nov 14th from Ticketmaster US or Ticketmaster Canada We would like to go on record to thank the many people behind the scenes who were involved in bringing you the news of the USA tour before anybody anywhere, (and one in particular who shall remain nameless!) Once again the AFG forum is hard at it raising funds to send Col (From AFG) over to the US (From Australia) to cover part of the tour, but this obviously takes a fair bit of money. If you appreciate the work we do and can help out in any way, please consider making a donation to this worthy cause  by donating directly using PayPal to col@pinkfloydz.com. We know Col will appreciate it. (Added 1 Nov)

WOW! Since publishing Roger’s 2012 USA Tour Dates we have been bombarded with emails asking us for more information. As we understand it, the USA Tour will be officially announced next week (first week in November) and that Live Nation (and possibly Roger) will be giving a press conference at Wrigley Field, Chicago next Tuesday morning, (1 Nov). It’s further understood that tickets will go on sale VERY SOON, although we are not sure if this means pre-sales (As in Amex & rogerwaters.com). Please, no more emails about this, as we have told you everything we currently know. However, if you would like to join in the very lively discussion about this (and find out more about the upcoming AFG convocations in the USA in 2012) then hop over to THE FORUM where hundreds of like minded people are doing the same. AFG, first with the news. (Added 29 Oct)

Roger is planning on hitting the cities he missed first time around (Austin gets a mention) as well as baseball stadiums in a few big cities. He said “But we want to base the tour around Saturday nights in baseball stadiums. As we speak, I’m at my office working on an outdoor version of the show.” Roger also confirmed that they have already done light tests at Fenway Park, Wrigley Field and Yankee Stadium and it works fine.He also said that ‘they’ are trying to get him to go back to Europe next year, but added “But I think I’ll be completely cooked by the end of July next year.” (which indicates to us that the USA leg will be sometime between late March (after the South American leg concludes) and July.
