Rolling Stone 1141 - Pink Floyd coverThe new issue of Rolling Stone Magazine (US edition, number 1141) hits newsstands on September 30th, and is dominated with their Pink Floyd cover story. David Gilmour, Roger Waters and Nick Mason all spoke with senior writer Brian Hiatt for the issue, discussing the band's fraught history, the making of their 1973 masterpiece Dark Side of the Moon and the delicate current state of their relationship.

Elsewhere in the magazine, Roger Waters looks to the future, and in a follow-up to his announcement last night on the Jimmy Fallon show of North American dates to come, in RS he expands on this. They explain that the show will hit venues he missed the first time around – as well as baseball stadiums in a few big cities. "There are quite a few markets we didn't cover last time, like Austin, but we want to base the tour around Saturday nights in baseball stadiums. As we speak, I'm at my office working on an outdoor version of the show. We've done light tests at Fenway Park and Wrigley Field and Yankee Stadium just to see what the ambient light is like. And it's fine. It works. We've taken part of the Wall and the projectors into those three places."

Bad news for those of us in Europe though. "They're trying to get me back to Europe next year," says Waters. "But I think I'll be completely cooked by the end of July next year."

The magazine will be available in selected outlets worldwide as an import, and localised editions may also feature the same Floyd coverage.
