 Roger Waters The Wall
Roger Waters will put on one of the biggest stagings ever of his re-mounting of Pink Floyd’s magnum opus “The Wall” when the 2012 North American tour reaches Los Angeles. For the L.A. stop, Waters will build his wall at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum on May 19. Tickets go on sale Nov. 18 at LiveNation.com.

His 2010 arena tour, which played at Staples Center in Los Angeles and the Honda Center in Anaheim, was the second highest-grossing tour of the year (behind Bon Jovi). He'll also be incorporating some stadium performances on his next time out.

The 2012 tour consists so far of 36 shows in the United States and Canada, starting May 1 in Houston and ending July 14 in Philadelphia. Waters also has scheduled California stops in San Francisco on May 11 and San Diego on May 13.
