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)

The Walls come down
4 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It has been quoted by Roger Waters himself in 1989 that the only way he would ever perform The Wall live again is if the Berlin Wall came down and one year later in 1990 as if by fate or what not The Berlin Wall did just that, it came down ! So Waters shocked by his own words coming true lived up to his promise and The Wall: Live in Berlin was set into production. It was rumored that this would lead to a full blown Pink Floyd Reunion but sad to say that did not happen. Roger Waters instead pulled together several solo singers and 3 rock bands, The Scorpions, The Band and The Hooters and fellow British actors Albert Finney & Tim Curry. This was not going to be some run of the mill production set in some normal theater no this production was on a grand scale set up on what was known as Ploterzdam Platz aka "No Man's Land" which was the area in the wall between East and West Berlin. Because of security logistics actual remaining parts of the Berlin Wall were used as Security Fencing. The audio & video production itself was plagued from the very start by every thing conceivable but it was doctored up in post production to make it look seamless and uninterrupted. The concert was originally sold on VHS and now is available on DVD. In 2010 both the coming down of the Berlin Wall and the concert will be 20 years old and now considered a piece of world history.
