    Tickets go on at 10 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 14 at tickets.com.

    The show has been touted as "one of the most ambitious and complex rock shows ever staged," by the Daily Mail.

    "This is going to be something that the fans and even casually observers of Rock 'n Roll are really going to be entertainedy by. This is going to be something unlike anything we've ever seen," said Norm Winer, WXRT radio's program director, adding that he's "paid to be jaded and cynical."

    Live Nation's Jason Wright confirmed what Waters recently told Rolling Stone, that crews had already conducted lighting tests at Wrigley Field, among other stadiums.

    The Wall was last in Chicago in September 2010, when it was setup in the United Center. Former Beatle Paul McCartney brought his show to Wrigley Field for two nights earlier this year.
