A true rock legend

How could it be otherwise, Waters had to cross these latitudes to greet his Argentinian fans – one of the most loyal he has in the world – with whom he has developed a close bond throughout his career. And the place could only be the Monumentale, where she gave 9 unforgettable recitals in 2012 as part of his “The Wall Live” world tour, which broke an all-time record for the number of shows in River in one visit for the history of show business in Argentina. It took ten years for another artist to surpass him: Coldplay.

In addition, he had two shows in the same stadium in 2007 with his “Dark Side of the Moon” tour. If it comes to who has done more shows in River in his career, with this recital Roger Waters is in first place together with the Rolling Stones, who have a total of 12 shows in River.
