Potsdamer Platz in Berlin on this day, 1990, saw a huge performance of The Wall, performed by Roger Waters and his band, along with guests such as Van Morrison, Joni Mitchell, Bryan Adams and The Scorpions. The show was broadcast live worldwide, and typically there were power issues early on - with no sound, Roger improvised with a bit of tap-dancing to entertain the 350,000+ audience there, and the millions around the world.

Nick Mason, on Pink Floyd Live At Pompeii:
“It turned out to be a very useful and, I think, a very good film. It was a controlled environment, as there was no audience, so we could cut, stop and reshoot. But the open air and the dust and everything else made it feel like a real live show. There was a bit of grit to it.”
