Iconic classic progressive rock composer Roger Waters is bringing one of the biggest rock n’ roll shows of all time to The Pepsi Center in Denver this Monday to play a show that no one should miss! This is a reproduction of the classic 1979 Pink Floyd album The Wall, and, in particular, an updated reproduction of the original monumental 31 live shows that the Floyd staged in 1980 and 1981 in support of the album. You may have seen big rock stage shows before, as maybe you have seen U2 or the Rolling Stones pull off an stunning stage show, but take it from me, until you’ve seen a Pink Floyd show, you have not seen a real epic show of this proportion. You see, this is a spectacle of not only amazing visuals, but also one emerced in concept, both in form and physicality. It is not an illustration of a literal wall, like The Great Wall Of China, The Wailing Wall, or The Berlin Wall, but a metaphorical one, the kind that the mind builds up to protect oneself from being hurt after repeated damage through wounding events and treatment, but also one that can cause cyclical destruction by excessively isolating oneself after repeated trauma. This album (and show) tells the story of one such broken soul, as Roger Waters narrates his own story of isolation and madness.
