He's bringing it back. Pink Floyd's Roger Waters is revving up for a big "The Wall" tour this Fall and last night in Santa Monica (Arizona & 2nd Street) he released some mysterious projector images in Santa Monica and New York City.

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed," projections read, a quote by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Why is he doing "The Wall" again, this time using photographs of people lost in war? "I believe this is still a supremely relevant question and the jury is out," he writes on his website about a quote of his from 22 years ago: "What it comes down to for me is this: Will the technologies of communication in our culture, serve to enlighten us and help us to understand one another better, or will they deceive us and keep us apart?”

The projections will continue Friday and Saturday night in Los Angeles from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. at 9957 S. La Cienega Blvd. and 912 S. Broadway, respectively.
