COMMENTS

Roger's Us + Them tour is now in Mexico following the successful shows in South America. 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 North/South American, European, Australian or New Zealand shows thus far, will know just how spectacular and moving this new production is, and how it is a show you really shouldn't miss!

WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD!

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

Well, that's it. This show in Monterrey marked the end of the 2018 Us + Them tour. There are rumours of more dates in 2019 but as things stand, they remain just rumours.

It's been a fabulous production, with great performances night after night, and the messages within the show seem to have really made attendees stop and think. If this IS to be it, at least there is the good chance of a release on DVD/Blu-ray and CD, as the Amsterdam shows earlier in the year were recorded with the intention of release.

The selection at the penultimate part of the show (following the band introductions) replaced the more normal selection of Mother, and was the occasionally performed trio which concludes Roger's recent album, ITTLWRW - Wait For Her, Oceans Apart, and Part Of Me Died.

Here's a video from his official Facebook page, showing a rather emotional Roger:

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!
