The Wall Makes Its Triumphant Return To North America On April 27th With 41 Shows
Roger Waters' extraordinary production of The Wall has smashed attendance records in South America with a record breaking 15 open-air stadiums shows in Chile, Brazil and Argentina, playing to over 750,000 fans.
This is the largest number of stadium shows ever played in South America by an international artist on one tour. The South American leg included a record breaking 9 sold out shows in Buenos Aires, River Plate Stadium, exceeding the previous record of 5 nights, held by the Rolling Stones (see link below to photos of The Wall in River Plate Stadium).
The Wall, an aural and visual masterpiece, has so far played 150 shows for a gross of US $218M in 27 countries. Due to overwhelming popular demand, The Wall returns to North America in 2012 kicking off this weekend, April 27 and 28th, at the Foro Sol stadium in Mexico for a historic run of 41 performances at stadiums and arenas.
The U.S. and Canadian leg begins on May 1st at the Toyota Center in Houston, TX with dates through July 14th at the Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, PA, including 2 nights at New York's prestigious Yankee Stadium and 1 once-in-a-lifetime night at the world-famous Los Angeles Coliseum, for a total of 9 stadium shows.
