Hey, teacher — The Wall Live Extravaganza will bring rock opera to the Fillmore

Staff Pick


  • Richard Petit
It’s been 40 years since legends Pink Floyd sucked us into the disturbingly surreal and Orwellian audio-visual world of The Wall. Tasked with interpreting that world is French-Canadian singer-songwriter Richard Petit who has been paying tribute for more than a decade with The Wall Live Extravaganza. A cover band this spectacle is not: dubbed a theatrical performance, Petit’s staging brings The Wall’s cast of characters to life by fusing elements from the album and film, as well as legendary live Pink Floyd performances.

The Wall Theatrical Extravaganza begins at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, March 29 at the Fillmore; 2115 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-961-5451; thefillmoredetroit.com; Tickets are $25.
