The legendary Roger Waters will be performing “The Wall” in its entirety on Tuesday, June 5, 2012 at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, MI. The St. Louis Arena is often referred to as the JLA and it’s located on Civic Center Drive in Detroit. The Detroit Red Wings call Joe Louis Arena home. This arena was finished some 30 plus years ago and it cost $57 million which is a fraction of how much some venues of this generation cost to build. One nice thing about the Joe Louis Arena is that it is only one of the 3 remaining arenas that host the NHL that don’t have corporate sponsorship names – how refreshing!! It is also the 4th oldest venue that the NHL plays in. This storied venue will never be the same after Roger Waters performs The Wall Live on 6/5/12. The stage for this show is absolutely amazing and breathtaking. Add code WALL for special savings at the checkout.
