Pink Flloyd's THE WALL Coming to Sarasota 3/20
Pink Floyd's epic album The Wall is presented live on stage at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall on Saturday, Mar. 20 at 8 p.m.
The show, the quintessential rock opera about the dark side of fame and rock and roll, is presented by Classic Albums Live - a group of highly accomplished musicians who faithfully recreate the rock opera (but do not impersonate-or dress up like-Pink Floyd).
Tickets are $30-$40 (with a limited number of "smart seats" priced at $10).
The Wall, listed as number 87 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, achieved number one on the Billboard 200 and has worldwide sales of over 30 million copies.
A recent reviewer noted, "The Classic Albums Live crew stayed true to their motto of "note for note, cut for cut," as the performance was at times difficult to differentiate from the 1979 original...Ranging from the sounds of helicopters and airplane bombers flying overhead and telephones being connected via operators from the U.K. to the U.S. to the use of a full high school choir when a chorus of young voices was needed, the show mimicked the album in every aspect."
