The Wall, for the most part, has always been an indoor show. However, for the past year Waters and his crew have been hashing out all the details and perfecting the concert to transfer over to an outdoor show, focusing specifically on American baseball stadiums.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Roger Waters admits there were some big venues he didn’t get the chance to play last time around. But with The Wall tour returning to America in 2012, Waters has bigger and better plans in mind.

“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.”

The best part about it? Fenway Park is hot on his radar!

“We’re going to be projecting over 140 yards. So now it’s going to be 1,500 pixels wide. We’ve done light tests and Fenway Park and Wrigley Field and Yankee Stadium just to see what the ambient light is like. And it’s fine. It works. We’ve taken part of the Wall and the projectors into those three places.”

When the 2012 tour ends next summer, Waters would have been on the road for nearly 20 years, and has expressed some concern about his future.

“They’re trying to get me back to Europe next year. But I think I’ll be completely cooked by the end of July next year. I’m not sure I want to go out and do the greatest hits again. Which just sucks. What I love to do is theater in a rock & roll context. I think if I did any more in the future, it might well be smaller.”

Roger Waters playing at Fenway Park would be an amazing performance. A nice change of scenery from the baseball team that normally plays there.
