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!

CONCERT REVIEW and PICTURES by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Alberto Durgante

Great first of two shows of Roger Waters at the Mediolanum Forum in Milano. The new US + THEM gig is really a gorgeous spectacle, perfect for ears, eyes and hearts! No changes in the setlist, so as shown above.

The second half, starting with a stunning 20 minutes of Dogs is absolutely powerful. Only few words from Roger to the audience, at the end of the show when Waters talks about the "fucking" attack Donald Trump, Emmanuel Macron and Theresa May did in Syria, adding that "fortunately not one Russian was killed, otherwise we would all be in shit". Finally, he also thanks the Italians for "regularly saving refugees in the Mediterranean".
