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.

Former home of Rick Wright for sale

Posted September 9, 2016 by Floydian Slip

A Cote D’Azur, France, home once owned by Pink Floyd keyboardist Rick Wright is for sale.

The 6-bedroom, 5-bath Provencal-style property is situated on 1.3 acres of land near the commune of Le Rouret. Asking price is €1.39 million, approximately US $1.55 million.

In 2009, the Daily Mail reported Wright had a net worth of £23.7 million (US $31.6 million) at the time of his death in September ’08.

The paper also reported Wright’s children James and Gala inherited the French property at the time of his passing.
