Roger Waters at Nobel Peace Center, Oslo, Norway Print E-mail

Last Monday (August 13th) at the Nobel Peace Center, Oslo, Norway, Roger Waters participated in a very special event. A very small audience - just 200 people - got the opportunity to attend.

He gave the audience a lecture on music and politics. It was amazing! His hobby horse: war, fear and how the Western world (in particular) is responsible for destroying all kind of hope and belief in a good life for children.

He talked about the nuclear weapon industry, Palestine/Israel, Donald Trump/US, and the Syrian conflict. But he was pretty modest on what influence he could bring to people all around. But, he pointed out, you don't have to give in!!

It is nothing but impressive that this man, 74 years old, spends his time wherever he tours with his wonderful Us + Them show, talking about children, all over the world, suffering due to (civil) wars. And most of the crisis is created by the Western nations, with the US and UK in leading key roles.

It was a very useful reminder for all of us in the audience.

And the big surprise: the lecture ended with two songs from Roger: Broken Bones and Mother. He was joined by Lucius, Gus S and Jonathan W, all from his current touring band. It was an amazing night!

Our thanks to Terje for his report and pictures.
