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)

User Reviews

A well produced video of a superb concert.
26 October 2003 | by (Pa, USA) – See all my reviews

This video will inspire the Pink Floyd and Roger Waters fan. The production values are very high, but the video is not overproduced. You will get a birds eye view of one of the best concerts of all time. Most of the guest musicians perform brilliantly and with feeling (E.G. Sinead O Conner, Bryan Adams ,Cyndi Lauper and Thomas Dolby). If you own the album 'The Wall' you must own this video. Become one of the 300,000+ audience members as you experience the wall built in front of your eyes. Even if you prefer David Gilmour's take on Pink Floyd you will appreciate this rendition as a powerful tribute to the album.
