Brick By Pink Brick

The long wait is over!
Continuing the sell-out smash of his 2010/2011 tour of America and Europe, former Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters brings his musical masterpiece The Wall to Auckland's Vector Arena, Sun.19th February next year.
The Wall, written/produced by Waters, was first performed live by Pink Floyd in 1980. It was America's top-selling album of 1980 and is still in the US Top 5 best-selling albums of all time. A defining work in rock music history, it includes the anthemic Another Brick In The Wall, rock classic Comfortably Numb, Mother, Hey You and In the Flesh.
The Wall Live features all the classic Roger Waters special effects, including the original imagery, crashing aeroplane, quadraphonic sound, pyrotechnics, gigantic inflatable puppets, flying pig, and adds the latest projection technology, video mapping and many elaborate effects.
The visuals are a show in themselves, projected onto the infamous brick wall that's built during the show. In all, 424 large bricks will construct an imposing 230 x 35ft wall, dominating the arena.
I saw Pink Floyd in 1988, and rate that as an experience completely separate to and surpassing any concert I've ever seen - even Queen! Add state-of-the-art technology to that quality of music and musicianship, and it's a truly mind-blowing evening in store!
NZ tickets go on sale 9am Monday 11th July and WILL completely sell out fast. But there's no way they'd bring a colossus like that this far for just one gig, so you can also guarantee there'll be another show waiting in the wings for the night before...!
PS: 01 July 2011 - Concert date changed: now Mon.20th Feb.
PS: 07 July 2011 - 2nd concert date: Wed.22nd Feb.
PS: 14 July 2011 - Following the 3rd concert's sell-out (23rd Feb.), No.4 (18th Feb.) is on sale from July 25!
