Roger Waters on Howard SternYesterday morning, with no advance notice save for a throw-away comment at the end of the previous day's show that he might be appearing, Roger Waters turned up for US "shock-jock" Howard Stern's daily radio show on SiriusXM, and spent around an hour talking about a vast range of subjects, and also confirmed the Yankee Stadium show on July 6th. Presale tickets for this go on sale on Monday, with general sale starting one week later.

With Roger in a clearly relaxed and happy mood (and as he said, wired due to the coffee he'd downed far earlier than he normally would!) the interview proved a fascinating affair. You can read a summary of the chat here; Roger talked about everything from his childhood days, learning the guitar, his marriage on Saturday (January 14th) to Laurie (congrats to you both!), through to entensive discussion on his music - both as part of the Floyd, and his solo career. "We were a cracking team when we were younger...from '68 to 'Dark Side of the Moon' we were a tightly-knit group. [Dark Side of the Moon] was the first time we started making any cash." He even mentions the long running saga of The Wall On Broadway, noting that it is now on draft number five but clearly still hopeful that it would happen.

Our thanks to everyone who helped out with information on this interview, which you can hear through this Youtube video:
