Roger Waters has announced a 40-date North American tour coming in 2017.

“Us + Them” is the project recently teased in a 20-second video posted online by Waters.

“We are going to take a new show on the road, the content is very secret,” says Waters. “It’ll be a mixture of stuff from my long career, stuff from my years with Pink Floyd, some new things.

“Probably 75% of it will be old material and 25% will be new, but it will be all connected by a general theme. It will be a cool show, I promise you. It’ll be spectacular like all my shows have been.”

The tour begins May 26 in Kansas City, Mo., and wraps up Oct. 28 in Vancouver, BC.

Tickets go on sale Oct. 21. VIP package sales and Citi presale tickets begin Oct. 17.

Full schedule is available at rogerwaters.com.

David Gilmour to return to Pompeii

Posted March 18, 2016 by Floydian Slip

gilmour-pompeiiThis summer David Gilmour will return to play the Pompeii amphitheater, 45 years after Pink Floyd performed there while shooting Adrian Maben‘s “Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii.”

Gilmour will perform July 7 and 8 as part of his “Rattle That Lock” tour.

“I want to thank the Ministry of Culture for giving me the opportunity to once again play this beautiful and historic venue,” Gilmour says. “Performing there in 1971 was very special and I’m looking forward to returning and hopefully creating some more memorable moments made even more special by playing to an audience.”

Floyd was the first to play the ancient city of Pompeii, filming over four days in October 1971. No other artist has performed there since. The film showed the band performing without an audience, though the group’s set-list mimicked those of its other live shows at the time.

This time around, there’ll be more than just a film crew watching.

Tickets go on sale at 1 p.m. CET March 22 at www.davidgilmour.com for €300 plus a 15 percent booking fee.

Buyers are limited to two tickets per show.

Pompeii’s amphitheater, built around 80 BC, is the oldest surviving Roman amphitheater. It was buried along with the rest of the city by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.
