Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters turned rock’n’roll theater into real-life entertainment with his top-grossing “The Wall” tour, but now the singer/bassist will try his hand at professional theater.
Thursday night, New York City’s Beacon Theatre hosted The Bob Woodruff Foundation’s sixth annual “Stand Up For Heroes” event.

A new technique to convert DVDs into smartphone apps has been created, and first on the development company’s list is “David Gilmour In Concert,” featuring Gilmour’s concert at London’s Royal Festival Hall in 2001.
Thursday night (November 8), Roger Waters will take the stage at New York’s Beacon Theater for the annual Stand Up For Heroes benefit.

As the temperature rises, rock, pop and country tours tend to leave arenas to give fans the experience of hearing their favorite performers live under the stars (or under the rain, if you’re unlucky). Here’s a roundup of some of this summer’s top shed and stadium tours.
