Roger Waters The Wall OAKA 31-7-2013

When you see something for the 3d time the element of surprise is missing and usually is subordinate of the previous time. However every time you watch ‘’The Wall’’

in the end your jaws will be on the floor.

As I entered O.A.K.A stadium I felt disappointed, being the first time I’ve seen this arena so empty, but when the first notes of ‘’In The Flesh’’ hit the air I totally forgot it , like Roger Waters himself and his band who presented a perfect show as if they were playing in a sold out venue .


The show was larger from the one we watched in 2011 in the indoors basketball arena of O.A.K.A stadium and one of the most perfect and magnificent I’ve ever attended , with excellent projections running over the wall and awesome direction of the cameras.

Great sound once again , with the giant pig flying over our heads, with the known symbols on it, blending perfectly with the whole concept which unfortunately after so many years seems more pertinent than ever.


Evening Highlights: ‘’In The Flesh’’ with the fireworks and the plane , ‘’Hey You’’ and ‘’Comfortably Numb’’ which are in my top 5 concert experiences ever, the dolls that are giving life to the concept characters on stage , Snowy White and the great use of the Greek language by Roger Waters who thanked separately the seats where the ticket costs 18 euros each.
