COMMENTS

Roger's Us + Them tour:

"We are going to take a new show on the road, the content is very secret," said Roger 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 announcement notes that "Roger Waters' legendary live performances are renowned as immersive sensory experiences featuring high class, state-of-the-art audio visual production and breathtaking quad sound. This new tour promises to be no exception; following months of meticulous planning and visionary craft, US + Them will inspire crowds with its powerful delivery and take the audience on an unforgettable musical journey."

WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD!

Do not read on if you don't want surprises to be spoilt, regarding what the band played!

The second of the pair of shows at the Pepsi Center in Denver, and a show that apparently was even better than the first night, from a message we had from an attendee.

First, here's a video from this show, from Roger's Facebook page:

CONCERT REVIEW and PICTURES by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Ken Langford

I attended the 2nd night of Denver with a friend who had never seen Pink Floyd or Roger Waters. He was blown away! I thought it was a great show, but for him this was a once-in-a-lifetime show and for me it was one of 30 in a lifetime.

There were differences in the show from opening night. I am naming two songs here, so if you do not want to know any of the songs in the set then quit reading.

Firstly, I got to have a peek BEHIND the Wall-like screen. It was amazingly thin and was a dense conglomeration of wires. Thanks to Roger for bringing a state of the art screen such as this! It must be one of the largest such in the world.

Roger Waters - Denver, 2017 Roger Waters - Denver, 2017

During the 2nd set in Kansas City there was a point where two rows of screens were unrolled from the ceiling in two lines perpendicular to the stage. Then projectors from the sides of the venue projected onto them for maximum best view from the sides of the hall. What was on them? Don't know, because I was seated directly below and in between the two rows, looking up at the backsides of both rows of screens. So in Denver I had seats on the side and was looking forward to seeing that part of the show. But the screens were gone. If any attempt was made to hang these screens in the Cola Center, that attempt failed. So I have yet to see what was on the screens. I wonder if the omission was just this venue, or if the screens have been scrubbed from the rest of the tour? During the song Dogs the two female singers where set up with large drums that they pounded on for parts of the song. I do not remember this from Kansas City, so it may have been added. Finally, Roger sang on the choruses of Us and Them, which I also do not recall happening in Kansas City.

The band were in fine form and seemed to really enjoy playing together. As in Kansas City, there were two points where I noticed audible overloading of microphones - this time for the female singers. Not sure how this can still be happening - very unprofessional for a major touring act. My friend who is a sound engineer also heard it, and he suggested that maybe it was not audible to Roger in the monitor feed. I cannot imagine that Roger would be OK with such a glitch, considering how much of a perfectionist he is known to be.

Overall another inspiring performance by Roger Waters!

We'd love to know in more detail from those attending how they felt the concert went. How did this change affect the show for you, if you were one of the fortunate ones to attend? Let us know what YOU thought!

YOUR HELP NEEDED! We want to cover Roger's concerts the best we can, to share the experience with everyone, especially those who won't be able to attend the shows. We'd love to see ANY pictures, tickets scans, reviews, newspaper reports, and anything else you come across for this show - we look forward to hearing from you!
