Roger Waters The Wall

29/9/2015,22:00,Δαναός 1

Pink Floyd's "The Wall", a seminal music show Roger Waters has been performing since 1979, is captured during the tireless musician's transcontinental tour in 2013. The concert documentary of the year!

Entrance is 9€

It’s incredible how relevant the music concept Roger Waters came up with at the end of 1979 still is! "The Wall" isn’t so much a rock opera as one of the most important political and historical manifestos of our time. It addresses the suffocating diffusion of neo-liberalism and the isolation of modern man without beating around the bush. 36 years later, Waters, a founding member of Pink Floyd, responsible for the majority of their lyrics and the epic character of their concerts, presents his most personal project to date "Roger Waters - The Wall", which travelled from stage to screen, to be broadcast simultaneously in major cities around the world. After the show, audiences will get the chance to watch band members Roger Waters and Nick Mason answer questions from fans all over the world, in a discussion about the history of the band and the music industry in general.

Entrance is 9€
