“Benvenuto, bambini!” Roger Waters exclaims through his microphone to the line of children excitedly walking toward the stage inside Rome’s massive Stadio Olimpico. On this blistering afternoon in late July, the former Pink Floyd leader and his band are in the middle of the soundcheck for tonight’s show, at which they’ll perform Floyd’s classic 1979 double-album, The Wall, for 50,000 Italian fans.
Music from last week's 12.12.12 Concert for Sandy Relief in New York City is now available on iTunes. A physical CD will be released in January via Columbia Records. The album features select performances from the epic December 12 concert, which took place at Madison Square Garden. Some of the stand-out songs include Eric Clapton playing the Derek and the Dominos track "Got To Be Better In a Little While" and Cream's "Crossroads."
The Story of Wish You Were Here -- a DVD/Blu-ray about Pink Floyd's classic 1975 album -- will be released June 26 via Eagle Rock Entertainment. The DVD is authorized by the surviving members of the band and was made with their involvement and cooperation.
Last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Roger Waters made an special guest appearance, joining Foo Fighters for a cover of the bass-heavy "In The Flesh," off the classic Pink Floyd album The Wall. You can check out video below.
