Last night Roger Waters brought his epic production of The Wall back to The Pepsi Center for an encore performance. The last time he was in town, back in November of 2010, he wowed a sold-out crowd, and those who missed the show the first time around had their opportunity to see the Pink Floyd legend perform the landmark album in it’s entirety in one of the best touring productions ever staged. With giant puppets, flying pigs, pyrotechnics, airplanes flying in the from the rafters, and of course a massive wall, Waters proved yet again that, even as he pushes 70, he is one of the biggest rock stars on the planet.
While the photo essay below doesn’t even begin to do the show justice, it will give you an idea of just exactly went on in The Can last night!
Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for Jambase.com, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
