February 7, 1980: Pink Floyd begin ‘The Wall’ Tour

While Roger Waters successfully toured the iconic Pink Floyd ‘The Wall” album in 2010 and 2012, the original Wall tour was wrought with many challenges. February 7, 1980 marked the first night of Pink Floyd’s 31 date tour for ‘The Wall.’ The Los Angeles Memorial Sports Auditorium was the first stop of this larger than life tour, which featured extensive stage theatrics, large inflatable puppets, and of course, the construction of a massive wall across the stage.
