THE RETURN OF ROGER WATERS
5/22/17

Roger Waters treated friends and family to a dress rehearsal of his Us + Them show at New Jersey’s Meadowlands Arena Sunday night, powering his way through two hours of solo work, new tunes and plenty of Pink Floyd classics. The tour starts Friday in Kansas City, stopping at Staples Center on 6/20-21 and 6/27 and 9/11-12 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

The concert, divided into two sets, is heavy on extraordinary visuals beamed behind Waters and his 10-piece band and, during the second half, down the middle of the arena’s floor. The imagery ranges from scenes of wealth and poverty, classic Pink Floyd visuals and a healthy barrage of anti-Trump and anti-war sentiment.

Us + Them is Waters’ first tour since the 2010-2013 run of “The Wall Live.” The set list includes “Money,” “Wish You Were Here,” “Welcome to the Machine” and “Brain Damage,” which is accompanied by a spectacular laser display.

Columbia will release Waters’ first studio rock album in 25 years, Is This the Life We Really Want?, on 6/2.
