Roger Waters Returns to Buffalo; Who Needs a Little Education
Few albums in the history of rock have reached the epic status of Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”. When Roger Waters left Pink Floyd in 1985, the band continued on under David Gilmour’s stewerdship. Still, Waters was the bands main lyricist and his conceptual brilliance on the Wall and the previous “Animals”, “Wish You Were Here” and “Dark Side of the Moon” defined Pink Floyd’s greatest era.
On June 21, Roger Waters returns to Buffalo to perform the Wall, in it’s entirety at the First Niagara Center. Tickets go on sale November 14 at 10 am at Livenation.com. The Wall still claims the position of the 4th best-selling album of all time and the first single “Another Brick in the Wall, Part II” was an anthem for school children everywhere when it was released in 1980. Roger Waters performed the Wall in Buffalo last October to a sold out crowd, but Buffalo loves it’s Pink Floyd. Don’t be surprised if this one sells out again. The set for this show is incredible and this video performance features a guest appearance by David Gilmour, who has somewhat settled his differences withWaters in recent years and occasionally performs with him. Still, the divide of the wall between Waters and Gilmour is somewhat metaphorical, don’t you think?
