This weeks Pink Floyd Video of the Week is actually just audio. But I had only heard some of the ‘The Wall’ demos before, not the whole album – and really liked them – so when I found this I wanted to share. This is a good one to turn on and listen to in the background while you surf the web. Enjoy!

Riding on the success of the last two years of The Wall Live tour, Roger and the band are hitting the road once again in 2013. This time around, The Wall Live will hit a number of countries not visited in previous legs, including Croatia, Turkey, Romania, and Serbia. The European tour kicks off in Werchter, Belgium on July 20 and continues through to September of 2013.
For these large, open air stadiums, Roger has redesigned and scaled up The Wall show to create the ultimate stadium event, bringing The Wall experience even closer to fans wherever they are sitting and making the production even more encompassing in large venues.
Roger joins celebrated French chef and owner of NYC hotspot Le Bernadin, Eric Ripert, on the latest edition of Eric’s web program On The Table, for a video we’ve made our Pink Floyd Video of the Week.
Over the course of the program, Roger and Eric put together a langoustines appetizer, shrimp tacos with salsa, and steak au poivre – all from Roger’s own recipes. Naturally, the conversation also turns to politics, with Roger sharing his views on, “everything from the 2012 US election to the Patriot Act to personal greed to being an ardent atheist.”
