Storyline

A global television broadcast of the event in which former Pink Floyd leader singer and composer Roger Waters led an all-star cast in a mammoth benefit performance of his acclaimed concept album/concert, The Wall, in support of The War Memorial Fund for Disaster Relief. Set in Berlin, Germany less than a year after the destruction of the hated Berlin Wall, Waters was accompanied by disparate talents such as Cyndi Lauper, James Galway, Joni Mitchell and Albert Finney in the classic dark musical tale of a rock star's descent into madness and back. The performance was subsequently released as a top-selling video. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Strange, hypnotic, bizarre...was there a message in there?
20 May 2004 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Most enjoyable concert with loads of big name stars wearing funny get-ups and singing the utterly unique Roger Waters productions. I loved watching the Wall being built right there stone by stone and was captivated by the thing being dismantled rapidly in a falling thunder. Must have taken lots of time and energy to build this set, and even more to rehearse all the complicated numbers. Very expensive looking props were used which includes much more than the costumes: lots of trucks, flying machines, gun toting players running to and fro, and, of course, Cyndi's glorious wig. I gotta wonder at the mentality of someone who can come up with this much eccentricity in one program; is Waters a genius or just some p*ssed off 60's jamboy?
