Floyd co-founder announces more than 40 dates for 2002

Former member of Pink Floyd Roger Waters announced he would begin a world tour of more than 20 countries beginning in February. Waters made his announcement Oct. 18 at Club de L'etoile in Paris, France. The Europe shows will be his first since his 1987 "Radio K.A.O.S." performance at Wembley Arena in London.

The latest leg of the "In the Flesh" tour will begin Feb. 28 at Bellville Velodrome in Cape Town, South Africa. It will wrap up June 26 at Wembley Arena in London, England. View the complete list of concert dates.

Accompanying Waters will be: Andy Fairweather-Low, guitar; Snowy White, guitar; Doyle Bramhall II, guitar and vocals; Graham Broad, drums; Jon Carin, keyboards; Andy Wallace, keyboards; Norbert Stachel, saxophone; Katie Kissoon, vocals; Susannah Melvoin, vocals; and PP Arnold, vocals.

Waters sold out 50 venues in North America when he toured during the summer of 1999 and 2000. Like those shows, the 2002 tour will feature Floyd material, including material from "The Wall," "Dark Side Of The Moon," "Animals," "Wish You Were Here," and "The Final Cut." Solo numbers from "Amused To Death" and "The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking" will be part of the songlist, as well as a new Waters song, "Each Small Candle."

Waters will release a new album in 2002. No word on whether or not the 2002 tour will include any new numbers in addition to "Each Small Candle" from the upcoming album.
