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 (

All star cast celebrate the destruction of the Berlin Wall.
2 July 2000 | by (Pleasanton, Ca) – See all my reviews

What an incredible double feature this concert is! The most incredible Pink Floyd concept album is brought to Berlin Germany and played out with an all star cast live under the supervision of former Floyd frontman Roger Waters. There was also a cause for celebration in the air as the previous year saw the break up of a divided Germany and the Berlin Wall was dismantled for good. This live show is a must see for new Floyd/Waters fans that probably were not even born when the original album came out in 1979. A brilliant show that captures the beauty of Waters lyrics and perceptions! Look out for Jerry Hall as the party girl who wants to take a bath with Old Pink. Also stars Joni Mitchel, Bryan Adams, Van Morrison, Sinead O' Connor, Cindi Lauper, Tim Currey, Albert Finney and Thomas Dolby.
