The violent/sexual imagery of the flowers seen in the film was shown during "Empty Spaces." Pink begins his isolation as he sings, "I feel one of my turns coming on." The keyboards created a haunting sound as Pink implores the Wife puppet to "don't leave me now." No longer able to stand his life, he decides to put up the wall, which is completed when the final piece is inserted as Waters sang the last goodbye in "Goodbye, Cruel World." It's an imposing structure and during intermission pictures of people killed in conflict, some of which were submitted by fans through Facebook, appear upon it.
"Hey You" began the second half of the show with only a blank wall for the audience to see. "Is There Anybody Out There?" continued the idea though bricks were briefly removed to show the guitar solo. A chunk of the wall came down looking like a hotel room mock-up. When Waters sang, "I got thirteen channels of shit on the TV to choose from" line, though archaic, it got a huge reaction out of the crowd.
The war theme was evoked again. During "Vera" images of children reunited with returning parents were shown. It segued into the military march of "Bring the Boys Back Home" with Dwight D. Eisenhower's 1953 speech to the American Society of Newspaper Editors about the detrimental effects of war quoted on the wall.
Doing their best to follow David Gilmour's brilliant work, Robbie Wyckoff and Dave Kilminster appeared on top of the wall playing guitar during "Comfortably Numb." Waters hit the wall during its conclusion and the image turned into a psychedelic burst of colors and pills.
The entire band, now dressed in black and wearing marching hammer patches that evoked a Nazi armband, finally made their way in front of the wall. "In the Flesh," no longer a question, revisited the opening number and a black inflatable pig buzzed around the crowd. Pink has almost given up when he's "Waiting for the Worms," which can be seen filling the video screen. Waters sang into a bullhorn as Pink's lyrics become disturbing and racist.
