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!

WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD!

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

The second of a run of four nights in Amsterdam, with this show and the remaining two being filmed hopefully for future release. Back in the set list for this show was Mother, being performed just prior to Comfortably Numb, the concert finale.

As BD contributor Vincent Jutten noted in an email to us, the shows in Amsterdam are being "filmed with 16 extra cinematic grade cameras. There was also a lot of extra lighting compared to Monday's [first night] show which I also attended. The extra lights were aimed at the audience. Remote controlled cameras hanging high in the arena were following the flying pig and the flying silver ball. The silver ball itself also had a camera underneath to film the audience."

Unusually this is only around the second of Roger's Us + Them tour which hasn't subsequently had a short video posted on his Facebook page...

During the show, Roger shared a very funny story about a time the band played in the Netherlands in 1968, to a bunch of 8 year old children at a school! Here's his story...

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!
