Roger Waters The Wall to be released this fall

Roger Waters will release his film, “The Wall”, on DVD, Blu-ray and digital on December 1.

Directed by Waters and Sean Evans and recently screened in cinemas worldwide, the documentary was shot in three cities during the bassist’s three-year solo tour.

Beyond the music, the film follows Waters as he embarks on a deeply personal pilgrimage and reflects on the impact of war with his own family. Woven throughout the film, Waters travels to France to the site where his grandfather is buried, and Italy to a memorial for his father – both lost to war.

"I'm glad that we have an opportunity to share the film with people on a wider scale,” says Waters. “It has had a deep effect on my life, and I'm not the only one. This release provides an opportunity to remember all of our fallen loved ones."

The 2-disc Blu-ray and Digital HD features over 95 minutes of bonus footage from the bassist’s reunion with Pink Floyd members David Gilmour and Nick Mason at London's O2 Arena in a performance of “Comfortably Numb” during The Wall Live tour.

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.

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.
