Roger Waters may be returning to Chicago to build “The Wall” — this time in the middle of Wrigley Field.

Live Nation has scheduled a press conference Tuesday morning at the ballpark for a “major concert announcement.” Live Nation recently produced Waters’ tour of Pink Floyd’s classic opus “The Wall,” which stopped in September 2010 at Chicago’s United Center.

A spokesman for Live Nation confirmed this announcement was about at least one Wrigley concert for summer 2012. The ballpark has hosted concerts annually the last couple of summers, including two-night stands with Paul McCartney this year and Dave Matthews last year.

Waters recently told Rolling Stone he’d be bringing “The Wall” back to America. “But we want to base the tour around Saturday nights in baseball stadiums. I’m … working on an outdoor version of the show,” he said, adding that he’d already conducted lighting tests at Wrigley Field.
