Roger Waters mulls performing Pink Floyd's 'The Wall' at U.S.-Mexico border
Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters is contemplating performing “The Wall” — Pink Floyd’s classic 1979 double-album about isolation, conformity, division, responsibility and freedom of expression — at the U.S.-Mexico border to protest President Donald Trump’s proposed wall between the two countries.
Speaking to the Agence France-Presse news agency in London late last week, Waters said he believes “The Wall” is “very relevant now with Mr. Trump and all of this talk of building walls and creating as much enmity as possible between races and religions.”
Waters, 73, did not indicate when, or where, such a concert would take place, although there is recent precedent to hold it on the border between San Diego and Tijuana.
The internationally televised “RiseUp AS ONE: A Celebration of Music and Unity” free outdoor concert was held last October on 15 acres by Cross Border Xpress, the international point of entry connecting San Diego with Tijuana’s A.L. Rodriguez International Airport.
