Plains of AbrahamThe Roger Waters tour of The Wall in 2012 has - this afternoon - been extended by one additional show, which at time of writing, concludes the tour, one week after the Washington DC concert which was to wrap things up.

The concert, on July 21st, 2012, will take place at les Plaines d'Abraham in Quebec City. The Canadian venue is a historic area within The Battlefields Park that was originally grazing land, but became famous as the site of the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, which took place on 13 September 1759. The park is today used by 4 million visitors and tourists annually for sports, relaxation, outdoor concerts, and festivals. It is no stranger to concerts. Between 2008 to 2011, a series of concerts took place in the park, including performances by Van Halen, Sir Paul McCartney, Celine Dion, Rammstein, Sir Elton John and Metallica. Later this year, Madonna also appears in the park for a sell-out show.

The presales begin next week, with a limited number of advance tickets available to those who have registered their interest in this particular city. General sale tickets will go on sale shortly after through and other normal agents (exact dates and outlets can be found via Roger's website). The public sale will also see a limited number of VIP packages made available for each show on the tour.

UPDATE: Roger has been talking about this show, and it will feature a wall that's a staggering 800 feet wide - the widest wall ever! It takes place on the anniversary of the 1990 concert, and Roger promises a show like no other. Here, he's talking about it:
