Pink Floyd Live The Wall at the BankAtlantic Center 11/13/2010


In one of the most spectacular concert experiences I have witnessed in my nineteen-and-a-half years as an entertainment writer, legendary bassist and one of the founding members of Pink Floyd, brought the stage production of The Wall Live Tour to the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise Florida on Saturday night, in the best live rendition of this classic album to date.

This concert certainly lived up to all of the pomp and circumstance that has been heard throughout the land via fan testimonials and reviews. The sound, the production, and the quality of the musicians that backed Waters made for a complete, well-rounded visual and auditory journey into the maniacal world of The Wall.

The show starts off by following the albums narrative. It is about a rock star that build himself a metaphorical wall to protect him from the evils of the world but ends up fighting with his worst, innermost demons.

I love the fact that Waters didn’t do this concert note for note and try and re-create the album exactly. For some of the songs, he gave the music room to maneuver and even extended the playing time on a couple of the songs, but he never strayed away from the originality of the music.

It is also interesting to note that Roger Waters is approaching 70 years old. Looking very spry and in great shape, Waters still delivers easily on the high notes and displays an infectious energy.

Upon arriving to the arena, I knew immediately that this show was going to be unlike any other, mostly in part to the fourteen tractor trailers that lined the side of the road that leads to the back of the arena. The Waters clan also employ the use of four tour busses to get from show to show.

Giant inflatable’s commanded all of your attention. My memory will long hold the sight of the giant school teacher and the praying mantis and keep it in my brain for quite sometime. It was awesome, yet creepy at the same time. The only downside of this show, for me at least, was the political messages only because I went to see a concert and not a political rally.

The whole Roger Waters live experience was unbelievable and lived up to all that it could ever be. Truly a master of his craft, Waters did good this time around. I would recommend this concert to anyone.
