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!

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

The first of two nights "north of the border", and a return of Wait For Her, Oceans Apart, and Part Of Me Died as the penultimate selection prior to Comfortably Numb. For the Scottish crowd, and much to their delight, the statement about POTUS was changed to "Trump Is A Bawbag" - bawbag being a colloquial term for scrotum!

First, here's the 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!

CONCERT REVIEW and PICTURES by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Tom Dyce

It was a completely wonderful gig from my position and quite emotional as Rog even shed a tear in reaction to the the crowd's cheers at the end of the main set and was clearly affected by the crowds love.

CONCERT REVIEW and PICTURES by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Duncan Butterfield

A few thoughts on Friday's concert in Glasgow. Our second visit to the venue, the staff were courteous and as helpful as can be. Weather was hot all day (33) and the inside of the venue was mercifully cool.

We had good seats on the floor in block 006 (stage left) 11 rows from the front. These were not cheap seats, and yet we still found ourselves surrounded by fools and drunks. (build a wall)

At one point there was fighting on 3 sides of us. 6 people around us left. (build a wall)

More drunks & chancers swapping seats/trading up to the empty seats vacated. (build a wall)

The poor couple behind us came from Spain!!

The Celtic football thank you speech didn't go down to well in my opinion. Never bring up football in Glasgow. Lots of booing which I know Roger heard because his ear piece was out.

Lol the local kids featured in ABITW PTII looks absolutely terrified once they had removed their hoods, they were all over the place... did ok though. Not sure kids in hoods and Roger pretending to ''shoot'' the crowd is actually needed anymore either.

The show was superb and I'm so glad we went, would have to be something very special to get me back there again though.

CONCERT REVIEW by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Simon Hunt

Brilliant show, musicianship brilliant. However I echo your contributors comment about some of the crowd. Where is the respect? Why are so many pissed out of their heads? They paid £90 for tickets and are shouting and bawling (brawling?) throughout! So effing annoying! And putting me off any future gigs!

Fortunately my wife and I could move to vacated seats nearby and really enjoyed the second half. A truly spectacular show! Thanks Roger and band!

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!
