THE WALL, by Pink Floyd, may be played at the US/Mexican border.

How many times have you had this thought recently? I have thought is would be a great idea since last Feb when I went to the protest at the border when the moron came to check out the prototypes. I made a bumper sticker of it over two years ago too.

"Speaking to AFP, Waters explained The Wall is “very relevant now with Mr. Trump and all of this talk of building walls and creating as much enmity as possible between races and religions.” Waters noted the the album is “about how detrimental building walls can be on a personal level, but also on broader levels.”
In July 1990, Waters actually performed the entire album in Germany to celebrate the fall of the Berlin Wall."

"Waters has long been a critic of Trump’s policies, having displayed images of the then-Republican presidential candidate at shows with the words “charade” and “joker” across Trump’s face. The phrase “Trump is a Pig” has also been projected at Waters’ gigs."

1. Very Cool idea but this was last year.

Under today's circumstances it would probably be dangerous. Trump supporters are thugs.

4. Maybe between the time of your article from two years ago and now

has prompted him to change his mind. That would be great. Even better would be if it were held at the San Diego border crossing since that is where I live and could go (if I rob a bank first to buy a ticket since I am living on a very tight budget due to health care costs). I am sure they will cost several hundred dollars. I saw him about 5 years ago and it was almost $200 for nosebleed seats.
