The Wall Tour was a concert tour by the progressive rock band Pink Floyd. It lasted through 1980 and 1981, supporting their concert album, the Wall.

Compared to previous tours, the Wall was a relatively small tour, with only 31 shows in total. However, the tour was notable for its extensive use of stage theatrics. The most notable one was a giant wall constructed across the stage to convey the sense of alienation present in both the album and Roger Waters’ personal feelings at the time.

In its March edition, the New York Times stated that “The Wall remains a milestone in rock history though and there is no point in denying it. Never again will one be able to accept the technical clumsiness, distorted sound, and meagre visuals of most arena rock concerts as inevitable”.

This documentary includes setup of stage and equipment, along with interview and footage from the band and roadies.
