Roger Waters cancels one Manchester 'The Wall Live' date, adds brand new Birmingham date - pre-sale Thurs 2nd Dec 2010

Posted: 1st December 2010

Roger Waters has just announced the cancellation of one of his Manchester dates - Wednesday 29th June - due to filming commitments.

The Pink Floyd legend has already commenced the world tour of the ground-breaking 1979 concept album, and is due to hit the UK with a London O2 residency running from 11th to 18th May 2011, before moving to Manchester, Dublin and now Birmingham. Refunds for the Manchester date are available at your point of purchase.

The Birmingham date is at the NIA and will take place on Monday 27th June. Tickets go on sale on Friday 3rd December, but we're pleased to be able to offer you pre-sale tickets from tomorrow morning (2nd December) at 9am costing.

In 2008, Waters and his band performed the hit album 'Darkside of the Moon' in its entirety in UK arenas - I caught one of the O2 gigs, and it really blew me away. 'The Wall' is a slightly different prospect, being a longer album with a theme running throughout, and will surely lend itself perfectly to the big stage, with the usual Floyd lasers and back-projected images.

The last time Roger performed the album in its entirety was in Berlin shortly after the fall of the Berlin wall, and it is possibly the last time the tour will be performed, with him going on record as this being possibly his last tour. It's possibly the closest we'll get to a Pink Floyd performance, even with the recent 'will they, won't they?' speculation.
