Roger Waters has unveiled the official poster for “Roger Waters The Wall” worldwide cinema event screening on September 29 via Fathom Events.
Directed by Sean Evans and Waters, the documentary was shot in three cities during the bassist’s three-year solo tour. The film will be screened alongside an exclusive interview with Waters and Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason entitled “The Simple Facts.”
The pair reunited in London on May 28 to mark the 50th anniversary of the band’s formation with a plaque ceremony at the University of Westminster – formerly known as the Regent Street Polytechnic.
Behind the cinema event, The Wall Live tour brought the famed 1979 Pink Floyd album to arenas and stadiums around the world between 2010 and 2013. Waters played 219 dates that brought in a total of approximately $458 million dollars in box office revenue.
Waters was on hand to premiere the feature at the Toronto International Film Festival last September, where he introduced the film and participated in a Q&A session after the screening.

On July 24, Waters will reissue his 1991 album, “Amused To Death.”
The updated version of Waters’ third solo record will include a new 5.1 surround remix of the album on high-definition Blu-ray audio and a new remastered stereo mix completed by longtime Waters / Pink Floyd collaborator and co-producer James Guthrie.
On the same day, the singer will headline the Newport Folk Festival with “an intimate appearance specifically crafted” for the event at Fort Adams State Park in Newport, RI.
