Roger Waters on tour!



According to LiveDaily.com:

Roger Waters to revisit 'Dark Side' on tour

April 24, 2006 01:29 PM

Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters, who has long been estranged from the group, will perform the classic Pink Floyd album "Dark Side of the Moon" in its entirely during an upcoming tour of North America.

Waters has lined up an 18-city itinerary that opens Sept. 6 in New Jersey, and concludes with an Oct. 12 appearance in Seattle. The full itinerary is below.

According to a Columbia Records press release, Waters' upcoming shows will include two full sets plus encores, "with state-of-the-art staging, lighting and sound."

The first set will feature an overview of Waters' musical career, including selections from throughout his run as Pink Floyd's primary songwriter and songs from his solo album "Amused to Death."

The second set will feature Waters and a full band performing "Dark Side of the Moon" from start to finish. The album was issued in 1973, and remained on The Billboard 200 album chart for a record-breaking 15 years.

Waters band for the tour features Andy Fairweather-Low (guitar, vocals), Snowy White (guitar), Dave Kilminster (guitar, vocals), Jon Carin (keyboards, vocals), Graham Broad (drums), Harry Waters (Hammond organ), Ian Ritchie (saxophone), and Katie Kissoon, PP Arnold and Carol Kenyon (vocals).

The classic Pink Floyd lineup--Waters, guitarist/vocalist David Gilmour (tickets | music), drummer Nick Mason and keyboardist Richard Wright--performed together at last year's Live 8 benefit concert, marking the first time the group appeared together since 1981.

you think she'd be interested?
Radio announced it earlier this evening. They just played some 'Dark Side Of The Moon'. The Hollywood Bowl would be great - 20,000 fans, outdoors...

I'm jealous. I won't be able to see him, and I worship him. GOD DAMN IT, I HATE LIVING IN NEWFOUNDLAND. Roger, come here! You don't like big audiences! Mile One has a capacity of 5,000 or so! You'll love it! No fireworks! No screaming so loud that you can't hear yourself sing!

Oh man, and meeting U2 was so easy too. The artists' entrance to the BC is right under an overpass on a side street. I bet I could see him there too

I hate you! Well, not really. I'm just cursing the inhumanity of it all. It should be a law that massive fans of any particular band/artist should get free housing in major concert locations around the world. If I had the money, I'd hop on the next flight off this godforsaken island, but I don't.

Perhaps it's time to plead with the immigration office and see if they'll give me permission to work in Canada. I'm only on a student visa, so my income is zero. I can't even work on campus.

If I go ... and you figure out some phone system, you can listen via my cell. Or... we'll get Gorman to have a setlist party for some shows so you can listen in... Gotta be some Waters/PF fans on this site who will go, right? He's playing Montreal, correct? Is that too far for you

I have an Amex card and can get crappy seats now. I'm waiting for a Gold Card to arrive - should give me a better option for seats (and cost me more money ). I called Amex trying to find out where my new card is, and she said "it's in the mail".

That would be pretty awesome, Lila. And the setlist party idea sounds fun. I think there's a few fans around here. Maybe not so many fans of his solo work, but he doesn't usually play very many of his solo works anyway.

And no, technically Montreal and Toronto aren't far for me...the only problem is that I'd have to rely on my parents for the money to get there. Since they were kind enough to let me go see U2 in Toronto last year, I don't think they'd be willing to fork up more money for concert trip in so short a time period. My father would love to see him though (he's a big Waters fan too) so maybe I'll work on him.

It's a real pain, not being allowed to work. Stupid immigration laws.

Well work on your Dad... maybe ask for an early Christmas present or find some holiday/birthday to use.

I know I've seen Waters before, I just can't recall when it was. Hubby is too into South Park at the moment to recall . It might have been for '...Hitchhiking'. I do remember him being very good live. I hope it works out that you can make it, or if that doesn't work, at least a phone/internet "webcast"

Here's to hoping for some Tejas dates.

Before the Philly, Detroit, and Wantagh dates were released, I was holding out hope for him showing up at ACL. No such luck since he'll be up north then. I really hope I get an oppurtunity to see the man sometime though.

Do it. I pulled off a free ticket to see Robert Plant by going with my old man. The beauty of going to a show with someone who is responsible for you.
