Pink Floyd star Roger Waters has announced that he will perform the band's iconic album The Wall in full at Wembley Stadium in 2013. Ticket details below.

The former guitarist for the prog-rock legends will bring the show to London on 14 September 2013.

Tickets for the show go on sale on Wednesday 21 November and are priced between £60 and £75. He announced he would be touring the album around Europe's stadiums for the first time earlier this week.

Shows in Germany, Italy, The Netherlands and Ireland, were announced, but it took until today for Waters to reveal the British leg of the tour would take place at Wembley.

At a performance at London's O2 Arena last year, Waters was joined by ex-Pink Floyd bandmates David Gilmour and Nick Mason.

And at today's press conference for the 2013 shows, Waters also commented on the likelihood of Gilmour again joining him on next year's tour.

He said: "I haven’t had any conversations with David about that. I think it’s extremely unlikely. By and large, David’s retired as far as I can tell, but you’d need to ask him that. It’s nothing to do with me.”

Upon announcing the tour Waters said: "It's going to be a lot of fun for all of us. I've reworked the show to play outdoors in large stadiums. "It's really good. Even more moving, engaging, dramatic and thrilling than the arena shows."

Waters went on to speak about how advances in technology mean he is more comfortable taking the show to larger venues, after he previously stated he would not perform the show in an outdoor setting.

He added: "I've had to rethink the whole thing about stadiums. This wide wall stadium show couldn't have been done 40 years ago.

"We couldn't have filled the space in a way that would have been emotionally, musically and theatrically satisfying. Technology has changed. Now we can."

Tickets go on sale 21 November, 2012. For more information visit Gigwise Gig Tickets.
