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)

One of the Best Concerts Ever Made
31 August 2003 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Today I have watched this concert maybe for the twentieth time. It is one of the best concerts ever made. Roger Waters and all the participants are perfect. Mandatory for those who appreciate excellent musicians. My vote is ten.
