Roger Waters is preparing to release a live DVD version of his lavish 'The Wall' tour.

Going down in rock history as one of the most expensive tours ever undertaken, Pink Floyd's 'The Wall' has become something of a landmark. With the tour reaching its 30th anniversary, singer Roger Waters decided to dust down some memories.

Confirming a lengthy series of shows, the singer constructed an entirely new stage. 'The Wall' was given a new lease of life, with the best selling album being brought back to life by Roger Waters and a number of guest musicians.

Arranging a six night stand at the O2 Arena, it seems that these shows will be filmed with a view to a full DVD release. No official confirmation has been made, although Roger Waters did release a statement asking fans to refrain form using flash photography.

"Roger Waters will be filming and recording all 6 shows at The O2 Arena in London in May. For these shows, photographs are permitted but we must insist on NO Flash photography" the statement said.

"Flash wipes out the images projected on the Wall, which are the most important part of the show. Any person who uses Flash will have their camera confiscated and could be removed from the Arena."

The images have already been much discussed, with Roger Waters resurrecting the twin themes of money and war for the modern era. The projection is more than 240 feet wide and utilises a wall built in front of audience members.

Meanwhile, Pink Floyd stars Roger Waters and David Gilmour are set to perform 'Comfortably Numb' during a select gig on the tour. Could this take place at the O2 Arena? Wait and see...
