Roger Waters The Wall Live Tour 2010/2011

From: http://www.rogerwaterstours.com/

Kipp Lennon, one of the backing singers on Roger Waters The Wall Live Tour of 2010 2011 has made a post on the Venice band website (Venice are doing the backing vocals) and has posted some photos of the Venice band. Of particular interest is one of them rehearsing with Roger Waters for The Wall tour!

In the blog post Behind The Wall, Kipp Lennon said that the Venice website will be “a tour diary of sorts.” So it will be good to keep an eye on that website. Your humble narrator here will be!

Some interesting thoughts from Kipp Lennon:

Roger is such a pleasure to work with. He is open to re-examining things, appreciative of the team he has assembled, demanding the best from us all in a good way. Definitely firm in his vision and belief in the importance of being true to the original. He’s constantly wearing so many hats as he considers the history, the music, the stage design…everything down to the costumes, technology and souvenir programs. He’s VERY excited about the technological advances and innovations that a thirty year wait has brought to this project, and his enthusiasm is infectious. I can’t reveal any of the new stuff here, obviously, but, man you should hear him talk about it. You can’t help but step back sometimes and marvel at the enormity of this project and at the man driving it all. His vision and fire, adapting “The Wall”…updating it… preserving it… re-discovering it… he is just as passionate now as he was when he wrote it. And we get to be part of it. He continues to tweak it and polish it and shape it into his vision. It’s funny, after all these hours of rehearsing and hanging, we mostly get accustomed to being with him now, and we’re all just making music together, but every once in a while he’ll start a song like “Mother” or “Don’t Leave Me Now,” and we look at each other like, “That’s the actual guy right there.”

Assuming this tour goes as the last one, cheap Roger Waters Tickets price will be well worth it. I think it was 2 years back, we saw him at Jones beach in NY. I had a great seat ,got it at Ticketsinventory.com He played the entire Dark Side of the Moon album, Wish you were here, then a few tracks from the wall.
