Roger Waters, a co-founding former member of the English rock band Pink Floyd, will tour this fall in honor of the 30th anniversary of the band's famous The Wall tour, according to an April 12 announcement. Shows have so far been announced in 33 North American cities.

Pink Floyd's 1979 album The Wall includes the songs "Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2," "Comfortably Numb," "Mother," and "Run Like Hell," and is among the band's best-selling albums. In 1980 and 1981, the band toured in support of The Wall, each time presenting the double album in its entirety while a giant white brick wall was constructed onstage between the band and the audience, among other large-scale theatrics.

Since the famous tour, Waters performed the album once as a solo artist, in a 1990 concert in Germany celebrating the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Waters's 35-date tour begins on September 15 in Toronto and finishes up in mid-December in Anaheim, California.
