Roger Waters tour band - personnel change Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Thursday, 09 May 2002

One of the three backing vocalists - Linda Lewis - has not resumed her role for the second half of Roger Waters' In The Flesh tour due to family commitments. Taking her place is the equally talented Carol Kenyan, who has enjoyed a long career in the music business in her own right.

 
Roger Waters Rome gig - June 12th - location change? Print E-mail

Wednesday, 01 May 2002

There appear to be problems with the staging of Roger's Rome gig on June 12th at the Curva Olympico - due to building works there it looks likely that the stadium will be closed until July 15th. The most likely scenario is that the concert will move to Rome's Flaminio Stadium. This is all subject to a number of things, not the least being local authority licencing! More information as we get it.

 
Roger Waters at Glastonbury - confirmed Print E-mail

Following our advance warning (including our chat with Norbert Stachel in February where the question of the potential set list was raised), we have had official confirmation from Roger's management that Mr Waters is DEFINITELY headlining the Sunday night of the Glastonbury Festival, on the Pyramid Stage.

Tickets are nearly sold out/completely sold out (depending on who you approach) and there will definitely not be any on the gates. If you've not bought a weekend ticket (£97.00 plus £3.00 booking fee) you won't get in. However, past festivals have been widely broadcast on television and radio.

It is currently believed that he is still scheduled for a one-hour slot. As Michael Eavis, who owns the farm that the festival is held on, is a big fan of Pink Floyd (and indeed was telling all and sundry that they were who he'd booked!) don't necessarily expect too much solo stuff...

To qualify this, we're not talking all on the same stage at the same time! Obviously, (as seen in adjacent news) Roger is definitely appearing. The strong rumour for the last couple of months is that Nick will join him on stage, presumably for one or two songs only.

The intriguing development is that a FURTHER rumour (and I stress this is a rumour) has circulated like wild fire. Jools Holland is apparently (no acts are confirmed by the promoter until all tickets are sold out) appearing on the pyramid stage on Saturday, the day before Roger, with David Gilmour, no less, as the guitarist in his Rhythm & Blues Band! Now, if only we could get Richard Wright along somehow, and be a fly on the wall backstage!

The following story has appeared on The Indian Express site:

Pink Floyd brings Echoes to Kolar’s arid fields
The group will donate proceeds from sales of 3 million CDs of their recent album to fight global warming - by Santosh Vijaykumar

Mumbai, April 11: A day before maverick rock musician Roger Waters orchestrates Bangalore’s tryst with the moody, mystical and magical, nearly 150 farmers and 38 acres of land in the Kolar district in Karnataka will feel the lasting reverberations of psychedelic rock music.

Kolar is one of the only four places in the world (the other three being in Scotland, Mexico and Louisiana) where Pink Floyd’s ambitions are going green. And ambition here means sponsoring the plantation of 7,600 trees including tamarind, mango and others.
