Ian NewtonIt is with great sadness that we report the death of Ian Newton, who served as audio monitor engineer on Roger Waters' The Wall Live arena and stadium tours.

Ian reportedly died of a heart attack. He was in his mid-50s and known throughout the live production world as a modest but warm-spirited gentleman. Ian's other touring credits included The Police, Sting, Barbra Streisand, Oasis, Take That and Madonna. RIP.
