Roger Waters, founding member of Pink Floyd, performed “The Wall Live” Thursday night at sold out Philips Arena. George Roger Waters, born in Surrey, UK on September 6, 1943, is an English musician, singer-songwriter and composer. He is best known as the bass player, lyricist and co-lead vocalist of the rock band Pink Floyd. Following the departure of fellow founding member Syd Barrett in March, 1968, Waters became the band’s lyricist, principal songwriter and conceptual leader. This tour is the first time the Pink Floyd album The Wall has been performed in its entirety by the band, or any of its former members since Waters performed the album live in Berlin on July 20,1990. It is estimated that the production cost alone is $60 million.
