Roger Waters to bring The Wall back to UK in 2013

May 2, 2013

Roger Waters is to bring his acclaimed live show The Wall back to the UK later this year, with a performance at Wembley Stadium on September 14, 2013.

“I’ve reworked the show to play outdoors in large stadiums,” says Waters. “I’ve had to rethink the whole thing. This wide wall stadium show couldn’t have been done 40 years ago.”

He added: “It’s even more moving, engaging, dramatic and thrilling than the Arena shows.”

Paul Carrack returns with new album, TV documentary and UK tour

October 11, 2012

Visit our main website at: http://www.sh-boommagazine.com

British singer-songwriter Paul Carrack’s four-decade career is to be celebrated in a new TV documentary which will be screened on BBC4 on October 12 (10pm UK time).

Titled The Man With The Golden Voice, the TV documentary features interviews with Carrack’s musical colleagues Chris Difford, Mike Rutherford, Timothy B Schmit and Nick Lowe.

The programme documents Carrack’s journey from his Sheffield roots to become a highly-respected solo performer, a member of Ace and Mike & the Mechanics, and a collaborator with legends such as Roger Waters, Roxy Music, Elton John, Ringo Starr and B.B. King.

The TV tribute follows the release of Carrack’s latest blue-eyed soul album Good Feeling on September 24. It features 12 classy tracks, including several brand new songs, a collaboration with Squeeze’s Chris Difford (titled ‘Marmalade Moon’), a new version of Nick Lowe’s ‘From Now On’ (first recorded on Carrack’s Suburban Voodoo album 30 years ago), and an excellent cover of Bruce Springsteen’s Lucky Town track ‘If I Should Fall Behind’.

Carrack produced Good Feeling himself and plays most of the instruments on the album. His son Jack, now a member of his touring band, plays drums on the album.

Pink Floyd to reunite for charity?

October 17, 2010

Visit our main website at: http://www.sh-boommagazine.com.

Pink Floyd may get back together again to play concerts for charity, according to the band’s drummer Nick Mason.

Speaking at the In The City music conference in Manchester, Mason said the band liked the idea of repeating the concept behind the Live 8 concert in London in 2005.

“It could provide a template for something we would do again – something that’s not necessarily for us, but for the right reasons, and enjoy doing it.

“I think it would be a very nice way for a band to gently move towards retirement by doing shows absolutely for charity rather than for more income,” said Mason. He suggested the funds raised could be paid into a specially formed charitable foundation which would then distribute the money to a variety of good causes.

The legendary rock band’s Roger Waters and David Gilmour famously fell out in the 1980s, but another charity concert recently brought the two of them together again for the first time since Live 8. In July, they performed three Pink Floyd classics for the Hoping Foundation, which helps Palestinian children.

David Gilmour is also expected to be a surprise guest during one show on Roger Waters’ forthcoming tour which will feature the band’s classic The Wall in full.

Pink Floyd keyboard player and founder member Richard Wright died at the age of 65 in September, 2008 after a short battle with cancer (see Sh-Boom! Magazine – September 16, 2008).

When asked recently about the possibility of the band’s three surviving members reuniting for another charity event, Rogers Waters said: “A one off thing – for some kind of charity event – I could see that happening again. I would be up for it, for sure.”
