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 first night of Roger’s Us + Them tour, and threats that a number of the audience were there purely to walk out when some of the anti-Trump imagery and comments were made. Thankfully, in the event, there was no real sign of this happening, and the reaction to the first proper show of the tour seemed to be extremely strong. A detailed review of the show can be seen at TmakWorld.com - worth a visit to read it.

We'd love to know from those attending how they felt the concert went. Did you go? Let us know what YOU thought!

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

CONCERT REVIEW by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Ken Langford

Roger always puts on a spectacular show, and this was no exception. There were some very cool EFX on and outside of the Wall-sized screen behind the band.

He presented a very satisfying set for an old Floyd fan with a sprinkling from his forthcoming LP. I don't want to delve too heavily into the setlist here for fear of spoilers.

A warning to people with strong political opinions: the lefties should be plenty happy and the righties might range from annoyed to full on PO'd. He has never concealed his opinions, and you can expect an ample helping of them here. In this city the crowd seemed nearly universally supportive. I have heard boo's at a Waters show before - notably Atlanta on 5/22/07. I did not hear any tonight.

The show was presented in quadraphonic, and I was about two seats left of the midline and two rows in front of the soundboard. The SWEET SPOT! I actually had a choice between this and 9th row on the side, and went for the surround. I would say the impact was some diminished by wearing earplugs, which I do at every show, but there were specific moments where even with them it was obvious that the rears were getting a workout. This was the best surround experience I have ever had in concert, and I have seen Roger and Floyd many times. And Steven Wilson.

I would give this show an A- based on the new material being unfamiliar, which would be fine if the vocals had been mixed louder so that every word was clear. In fact, at a few points in both sets his mic was overdriven - creating an ugly sound that was not intentional. Surprising for a professional show.

I would say that a liberal Pink Floyd fan could not go wrong seeing this tour.

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!
