Pink Floyd's Roger Waters Considering Performing "The Wall" Near U.S./Mexico Border
One of the things Donald Trump has been gunning for since he began his run for presidency is having a huge wall dividing the United States and its southern neighbor Mexico. Whether or not that actually comes to fruition remains to be seen, but it has inspired former Pink Floyd bassist/vocalist/song writer Roger Waters to possibly perform the band's famed album The Wall in its entirety on the border.
In a recent interview with Euro News Waters talks about the idea of doing such a performance and how he would love to do it, but then also states there is a stipulation for such a thing happening, saying:
“Before this can happen, there will first need to be an awakening against these far-right policies. The sewers are engorged by greedy and powerful men as I speak to you.”
Personally I don't think Waters will have any trouble whatsoever finding a massive amount of resistance against Trump and his senseless maniacal policies. It would be cool to see The Wall performed at such a venue. It wouldn't be the first time Waters has done something like this, as in 1990 he did the same thing at the fall of the Berlin Wall. Regardless, this will be one hell of a historic moment.
