Pink Floyd - Wall Shows (1980 - 1981)

Pink Floyd - The Wall

The Pink Floyd were scheduled to play a total of 31 "Wall Shows" with their first concert starting on February 7, 1980 and their last show ending on June 17, 1981. The February 11, 1980 performance was cancelled for some reason so they only played 30 of the 31 scheduled shows.

The set lists from these performances are all basically the same and consist of all the songs from the album The Wall. (Some shows have extended jams towards the end of the first set in an effort to provide the "Wall builders" more time to build Roger's Wall, but I can't remember which ones do this.) Below is a list of the shows that I have in my collection.

Total number of Wall shows in my collection: 20

The Wall Identifier

Here is a cool little page that helps one identify each Wall concert. It is known as the Wall Identifier and consists of quotes from Roger Waters talking to the audience before each rendition of "Run Like Hell."
