Roger Waters news updates Print E-mail

Wednesday, 28 August 2002

Our friends over at InTheFlesh2002.com met with Mark Fenwick, Roger's manager, today, and have the following information for you all:

  • Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii (The Directors Cut), will be released on DVD in March 2003.
  • Roger Waters is performing just 2 songs with Jeff Beck on September 12th and 13th, 2002. Details are shown in a separate news item for tickets and band members joining Roger.
  • Flickering Flame Volume 1 is being discontinued as from December 2002. It is not being released in any more countries either, so if it hasn't been released in your country, you will need to get hold of it on import.
  • Berlin 1990 The Wall Live has no confirmed DVD date for release although Mark commented Roger has no rights over this release as he gave all future royalties to The Leonard Cheshire Charity. It is, however, believed to be out soon...

Roger Waters is still not confirmed to appear at the Whip Craic event to be held at The Royal Albert Hall. However, Brain Damage has been in contact with key personnel at the Countryside Alliance who are not saying that he ISN'T appearing...I think it is a case of "wait and see" with this concert!

 
Roger Waters appearing with Jeff Beck in September Print E-mail

With thanks to our friends at InTheFlesh2002.com we can bring you the news that Roger Waters, Andy Fairweather-Low and PP Arnold will appear on stage with Jeff Beck, at Jeff's concerts at the Royal Festival Hall in London on September 12th and 13th. Jeff is also playing on the 14th, but Roger will not be appearing. There is a strong rumour two songs from Amused to Death will be played. Please note these concerts are nearly sold out and you need to act quickly. Here is the link to the official RFH site and ticket ordering page.

According to a Jeff Beck fan site, Jeff will be joined by John McLaughlin, Tony Hymas, Terry Bozzio, Jennifer Batten, Randy Hope-Taylor, Jimmy Hall, Roger Waters, The White Stripes and more for the Career Retrospective concerts at the Royal Festival Hall. All the official site says currently, along with a mention of some "very special guests", is that in "these exclusive UK concerts, he at last plays the oft-requested Yardbirds songbook, as well as classics from throughout his career and classics to come".

UPDATE, August 25th: As of this morning, Roger Waters has been confirmed as OFFICIALLY on the bill. Check out the concert ad to the left...

 
Roger Waters looking for a home Print E-mail

The following report was in the New York Post on August 22nd:

Former Pink Floyd leader Roger Waters and wife Priscilla are looking for more than just another brick in the wall in Manhattan. Sources say he's looking to rent a place for up to $50,000 a month.

There's no word why Waters, said to be worth in the neighborhood of $90 million, would be renting rather than buying. "He's probably recording a new album," theorized a music industry exec. And wouldn't that be a treat.

As founder and driving force behind Pink Floyd, Waters' body of work includes the 1973 album "Dark Side of the Moon," for which the bassist wrote all the lyrics. Some of the music from the album stayed on the Billboard charts for 15 years. "The Wall," the double album that detailed the madness of being a mega rock star, went platinum 23 times over.

Waters left Pink Floyd in 1983, after "The Final Cut". His one major appearance during the 1990s was an $8 million staging of "The Wall" at the site of the demolished Berlin Wall, watched by a live TV audience of more than 100 million. His "In the Flesh" live show - Waters' first world tour in nearly two decades - matches classic Floyd tunes with 360-degree quadraphonic sound, large-scale video projections and an 11-piece band. Waters could not be reached for comment.

Check out the EMI press release for details of David's new DVD (and VHS video) - confirmed as released on Region 2 (Europe) on September 23rd. Looks like our non-Region 2 machine owning friends will need to make their players multi-region, as there is no sign yet of it being released on other regions...

 
Mason in wing-walking record! Print E-mail

Wednesday, 21 August 2002

Guy Mason, 10, son of Nick, became the youngest person in the world to wing-walk (literally, walk on the wings of a plane in flight) last year, flying over the English Cotswold countryside. We presume his father wasn't at the controls of the plane, but watching from the ground! Our congratulations to Guy on this achievement.
