COMMENTS

Roger's Us + Them tour heads into Europe following the successful 2017 shows in the US and Canada. At the original announcement, the following was revealed:

"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."

Those who have attended - or have seen pictures/video of - the US and Canadian shows, will know just how spectacular and moving this new production is, and how it is a show you really shouldn't miss!

Gabrielius Jucevicius kindly got in touch with us regarding the publicity for this concert. He said: "The Lithuanian concert in Kaunas is being advertised with a Lithuanian version of the usual poster, yet they managed to make two mistakes in one sentence by 'creating' new titles such as Dark Side From The Moon and Wish You Are Here. Fully translated, it says in Lithuanian: 'Most famous songs from The Dark Side FROM The Moon, The Wall, Animals, Wish You ARE Here and other albums'.

"The funny thing is that the mistakes are not mistypes of any kind but casual words that almost fit into the title as if it was done intentionally."

You can see a larger version of the poster by clicking on the thumbnail to the right. Many thanks Gabriel for sending this in...strange and unexpected errors shown on the poster!

WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD!

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

As with the previous show in Riga, Kaunas were treated to a performance of Amused To Death's The Bravery Of Being Out Of Range with an additional new verse. It sat in the spot just before Comfortably Numb, and seems to be the part of the show when he likes to vary it at times. Will we see any further surprises as this leg of the tour comes to an end? With just two shows left, who knows?

Next up, the tour makes the journey to St Petersburg in Russia for the penultimate show. First, there's a video from the show from Roger's official Facebook page:

We'd love to know from those attending how they felt the concert went. How was 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!
