COMMENTS

Roger's 2016 tour kicks off in Mexico, and this is the second of the pair of shows at the Foro Sol - going on sale due to exceptional demand for the first night.

Roger Waters - Mexico City, Foro Sol, September 2016Making his return to Mexico four years after his previous visit, the concert poster/advert clearly hints at a much wider repertoire of material. The neonesque icons on the advert are (in order) for The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and The Wall, and the promoter's website suggests songs from all these will be performed.

Obviously, material from The Wall is a given, but it is looking like a 'greatest hits' set, more akin to his pre-2010 tours. We will find out for sure in almost four months, but in the meantime, if you click the thumbnail to the left, you will be able to view the concert advert in more detail.

The general sale of tickets starts on June 9th through via Ticketmaster.com.mx, by phone at 53-25-9000 as well as at the Foro Sol box office.

More information on the concert - including a ticket price breakdown (from $300 to $3500) can be found at ocesa.com.mx/evento/roger-waters.

Our thanks to GC for the ticket scan to the right.

CONCERT REVIEW by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Brion Hoke

Over the past four days I saw Roger three times. Twice at Foro Sol and tonight in Zocalo Square. The band was amazing with Jon Carin's harmonic melodies and the trio of Dave Kilminster, GE Smith and Snowy White bringing our much beloved music to life.

I have been so lucky to see some amazing shows over the years. The Wall, Dave Gilmour in Orange, Pula, Verona, Chicago and Tienen and Roger's Dark Side Tour, but of all the shows I truly enjoyed this one tonight the most. I love to make new friends and enjoy music with peaceful people and here tonight that was the case in Mexico City. This is a beautiful city with great people and truly amazing things to see, thanks Roger for showing me how great Mexico is!
