The last stop on the tour was Olympic Stadium in Montreal on July 6, 1977. When Waters started playing the song, the crowd lit fireworks and one fan started climbing the stage. Waters spit at the fan and admonished the crowd in anger
. Reflecting on the incident backstage, Waters started thinking about the barriers - physical and metaphorical - between the band and audience at these huge venues. This gave him the idea for The Wall
, Pink Floyd's next album. That tour was held in smaller, indoor arenas; during each show, a wall was erected on stage as a symbol of this dissociation.
