Is there any Pink Floyd/Phillies fans out there?

Music legend Roger Waters is returning to North America with another leg of his “The Wall” tour, this time hitting up some outdoor venues while he’s at it. On of the destinations is Citizens Bank Park on July 14, 2012.

Last November, Waters did a three-night stand at the Wells Fargo Center that sold out every night (read a review from last year’s show here). Imagine the atmosphere for this type of show in an outdoor setting.

“This new production of ‘The Wall’ is an attempt to draw some comparisons, to illuminate our current predicament, and is dedicated to all the innocent lost in the intervening years,” Waters wrote on his website before the tour began.

The album’s story revolves around the main character, Pink. He built a metaphorical wall in his head, secluding himself from his past and present filled with abusive teachers, an overbearing mother, and women who would seduce and break his heart. In this wall, Pink’s tormented mind led him to believe he was a fascist leader against all different races and religions until he is overtaken by guilt, placing himself on trial and being ordered by the judge to “tear down the walls.”

Prices range from $253 on the field to $39 in the 400 Level. The 200-300 level is priced at $79, which are the seats I purchased.

Tickets are on pre-sale currently until November 6 at 10 PM on ComcastTIX. Use the password NUMB to get in. They go on sale to the public on Monday November 7 at 10 AM.
