The Wall continues to surprise at the cinema

  • Published in News

The Wall at the cinema, global event on 29th and 30th September 2015

Unanimously considered a milestone in the rock history and the career of Pink Floyd with over 30 million copies sold worldwide, the album THE WALL equates one of the top creative British band author with the most important contribution in terms of composition, ROGER WATERS. All in a work that, 36 years after its publication on disc, yet never ceases to amaze for topical, emotional involvement and meaning.

It is proof, as well as its subsequent reprints and the film adaptation in 1982 who made the Oscar-winning director Alan Parker, also the 219 concerts that same WATERS held between 2010 and 2013, presenting the monumental rock opera in whole, and inflaming audiences around the world. Now just the sights and sounds of that tour they arrive on the big screen in ultra definition in Dolby Atmos in the contemporary world after the success achieved at the Toronto International Film Festival.

ROGER WATERS. THE WALL is in fact an event film that develops on multiple levels: it is the experience of a concert album overwhelming classic Pink Floyd, Waters of a road movie that comes to terms with the past and an exciting anti-war film. The film will be followed by way of exception from the intimate conversation between Roger Waters and Nick Mason who, for the first time after the dissolution of the band, will respond with a selection of questions sent in by fans. The unprecedented event will be released simultaneously worldwide on September 29th at 8pm, but the Italian fans, unique in the world at the time, they will find the film for three days on 29th and 30th September and 1st October.

The film was shot in 4K and mixed in Dolby Atmos during the tour sold out of Roger Waters "The Wall Live" who has collected over 1.5 million fans in North America, 1 million fans in Latin America and Central America and 1 million fans in Europe: over 4 million viewers around the world for the largest world tour ever undertaken by a solo artist. The identification of fans with THE WALL is in fact second only to that of the same WATERS, who dug deep into his personal history and his own sensitivity to build an immortal parable about the war, the sense of loss, love and life , up to the decision to produce and co-directing (with the creative director of the tour Sean Evans) a film that, in addition to finally offer a testimony of those extraordinary concerts, it allowed him to deal with the current meaning of THE WALL. Strongly marked by mourning the death of his grandfather in the war (during World War I) and his father (who died during the Second World War), THE WALL free today even more his scream against the horror of all wars, exactly a century after the First World War.

Speaking of the cinema event, Roger Waters declared: “We were a large family on the road, around 189, one more, one less. Basically we were happy, as I am really happy to welcome on board at all; I know, I know, I'm mixing metaphors. Where was I? Ah yes, with your help the event of September will be the perfect way to remember not only our loved ones, but also the loved ones to the other guys, the ones that are gone, those who are still there and those who have yet rise”.

ROGER WATERS. THE WALL is a film by Roger Waters and Sean Evans by 21 Rue Productions. Music by Roger Waters, Music Production by Nigel Godrich, Installation of Katharine McQuerrey, Photography by Brett Turnbull. Executive Producer: Mark Fenwick. Produced by Roger Waters, Clare Spencer. Directed by Sean Evans and Roger Waters.

Great Success of David Gilmour at Verona Arena

  • Published in News

Gilmour opens the locks of the heart at the Arena

This was the title of Verona Arena newspaper. David Gilmour's official site published a long post, which tells of "a triumphal concert, electric atmosphere and vibrant crowd for the songs played". The evening at the Verona Arena is one that it will remain in the history of concerts in Italy and surely it will remain in the minds and hearts of more than 14,000 fans, who have been lucky enough to attend at the concert of high artistic and musical, and emotional involvement.

The songs played were a good mix among the songs of the album "Rattle That Lock" and the classic Pink Floyd songs,in a lineup that was exactly the same as already presented in Brighton and Pula. Lights and special effects at will, as well as evocative images projected within the circular Floyd screen. The tour will go to Florence and then continue in France, Germany and for several consecutive dates at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London; in December, it will reach Brazil, Chile and Argentina, and, next year, the US and then back to Europe .
