If you are a Miami Beach real estate owner and classic rock lover, you must be ecstatic about Roger Waters, the mastermind bass player behind Pink Floyd, coming to Miami’s American Airlines Arena with the Us + Them tour on Thursday, the 13th of July. After all, The Wall concert in 2010 was phenomenal.
Hearing Waters perform The Wall in its entirety, and watching the magnificent theatrical production on stage was simply remarkable. The bass player and mastermind behind Pink Floyd’s 1979 concept album about isolation was joined by modern lighting, elaborate sound, dramatic videos and exaggerated staging for the sold-out concert. Recreating the fourth besting selling album of all time, Waters’ autobiographical Broadway-like recreation of The Wall was incredible. Both baby-boomers and their children looked ecstatic to witness Waters’ timeless rock opera in the flesh. A partially built wall of enormous white bricks stood on top of Waters’ 240-foot stage. Throughout the course of the first set, it was built by hard-to-see construction workers wearing only black. State-of-the-art lights, photos, and movies were projected onto the 35-foot high wall.
Without a verbal introduction, a gray-haired Waters appeared in sunglasses and a long black trench coat to sing “In the Flesh.” The same symbol stood the height of the screen onstage. In the middle of the number, a military bomber dove from the venue’s ceiling onto the stage. Then there was the night’s highlight, “Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2.” The living legend explained that as a narcissistic experiment of time travel, he’ll present a double track of “Mother” along with an old recording.
All night, music lovers from homes for sale in Miami Beach got to feast on eye-candy associated with The Wall as the bricks gradually closed in the band. Fighter planes soared above and dropped thousands of symbols, such as crosses, stars, moons, dollar signs and seashells. The 2-inch paper designs fell over the fortunate audience members on the floor, as the crowd heard an international operator getting hung up on. As the last brick was put into place during the end of the set, Waters sang “Goodbye Cruel World’s” closing lyric, “Goodbye.”
When Waters sang “Hey You,” the enormous wall blocked the talent from being seen. During “Nobody Home,” a piece of the massive barricade folded down to show Waters singing. Touching videos of kids being reunited with their fathers coming home from war played during “Vera.” Waters stood at the bottom of the wall to sing the melodic “Comfortably Numb.” A gigantic balloon resembling a black boar emerged just before “The Show Must Go On.” Waters then shot an imaginary machine gun into the crowd. He then dedicated the intense “Run Like Hell” to all of the paranoids in the audience. During “Waiting for the Worms,” Waters spoke through a bullhorn as cartoon hammers marched onscreen. The masterful production closed with “Outside the Wall,” as the massive wall crumbled. Waters and his crew emerged unharmed, waving goodnight to thousands of fortunate concertgoers from Miami Beach luxury homes.
