Roger Waters Is Considering Performing “The Wall” Along The U.S.-Mexico Border

first_imgThough The Wall was conceived as a societal allegory, it has never been as relevant in America as it is today. Pink Floyd’s 1979 album shows the consequences of a totalitarian regime building a wall, which certainly sounds familiar to today’s political climate.According to a report from EuroNews, bassist Roger Waters is not only aware of this, but is even considering a massive concert of The Wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Waters performed The Wall extensively in 2012, and a recreation of that elaborate performance would most certainly be a welcomed protest.In the article, Waters says, “Before this can happen, there will first need to be an awakening against these far-right policies… The sewers are engorged by greedy and powerful men as I speak to you.”This wouldn’t be the first time that Waters has openly criticized Donald Trump through his music. The Pink Floyd bassist released images comparing Trump to a Nazi during a performance in October, during the song “Pigs (Three Different Ones).” You can watch that video here, which was shared on Inauguration Day.Meanwhile, Waters recently announced a new solo album, which he’ll be supporting with a major world tour.
