Roger Waters adds new Canadian show; issues in Miami Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Friday, 14 July 2017

First some hopefully good news for our Canadian friends: Roger Waters has just added an extra show toward the end of his 2017 North American tour. Tickets for the concert - being held on October 25th 2017, at the appropriately named Rogers Place in Edmonton, AB, go on sale TODAY at 12pm local time through Ticketmaster.ca and other normal outlets.

In a separate development, last night's concert in Miami was due to have a team of twelve drama participants from the Miami Beach Parks and Recreation Teen Club, assist Roger with Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2. The Greater Miami Jewish Federation stepped in and pulled the appearance of the teens from the concert, accusing Roger of alleged antisemitism, and in response, Roger subsequently shared the following video:

As you'll see from the video, Roger was not happy about this, finding the accusations hurtful, and also expressing his regret for the missed opportunity for the children who were due to perform. In the short time before the concert start time, some others were hurriedly arranged to be trained up in the performance requirements.
