Former Pink Floyd musician Roger Waters has confirmed that he’s working on a possible stage adaptation of his band’s classic album ‘The Wall’.
Waters toured the album between 2010 and 2013. The tour has been documented in new concert film, Roger Waters’ The Wall, which will be released in theatres worldwide for one day only on September 29.
Speaking to NME ahead of the film’s theatrical release, Waters revealed that he’s working on a stage version of the record with one of the writers behind the film Billy Elliot.
“We’ve done workshops with it as a theatrical piece, and I suspect we’ll see it sooner rather than later,” Waters said. “I’ve been working with Lee Hall, who did Billy Elliot, writers and producers, and I think that team will put it on the stage first in London, then New York and then maybe it’ll tour. People have been reduced to both laughter and tears in the workshops, which is a great sign.”
