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

The performance of "Mother" used on the video, laserdisc and DVD releases was from the previous day's full dress rehearsal. The concert performance of this song, featuring Sinéad O'Connor and The Band, had been spoiled by technical difficulties rendering it unusable so as planned the song, and others that had suffered from technical problems, was to be performed once more straight after the concert itself had ended. However despite taking part in the encore performance of "The Tide Is Turning" Sinead O'Connor was nowhere to be found backstage, apparently having been offended by Waters' request that "If need be just mime". It is also noticeable during the video version of the song that several members of The Band are reading their parts from lyric sheets placed near their feet. It is doubtful they would have used such props at the concert itself. See more »
Wow! This is the best concert I've ever seen.Roger Waters vocals are amazing and the other singers like Cyndi Lauper and Brian Adams did a magnificent job.Rogers vocals really shined on this night. If you are a Roger fan or a Floyd fan this is a must have.The projections are great and the creativity of "The Wall" is unbelievable.Must have this great concert!!!!!!!!!! First time i watched this concert I was in shock.Even though Van Morrison was slurring his word Comforably Numb was still great.The Tide IS Turning live after aid was breathtaking.Would make a great gift.The Wall falling in such a place that it did fall was historic. Joni and Sinead did OK and Paul Carrack was great.Scorpians did a fantastic job.This is a must have. My vote is a perfect 10 of 10.
