    Roger Waters, best known as singer/guitarist for Pink Floyd, is hitting The Wall -er, the road- this Fall on a 36-date North American run that begins September 15 in Toronto and wraps on December 13 in Anaheim, California. The show promises to be a visual spectacle, with a 240- foot-wide and 35-foot-tall wall that will be erected and then torn down during the concert. Props and special effects are also expected to factor into the show.

    Waters will also be playing The Wall - duh- and this concept album, originally released in 1979 and largely considered a masterwork, has only been performed 31 times in those 31 years. It was played by Floyd in 1980 and 1981, with limited engagements in Los Angeles, London, New York and West Germany and as an all-star presentation by Waters in July 1990 to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Waters is no stranger to playing albums back to front, as he played The Dark Side of the Moon from stem to stern during 2007 and 2008. Word is he take this tour to Europe in 2011, but no dates have yet been announced.
