Roger WatersIn a general wrap-up of Roger Waters news this morning, we start with the acclaimed Love for Levon charity concert which featured Roger Waters as part of an all-star lineup of musicians, and was held at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey back on March 19th.

"Love For Levon" also featured John Mayer, Bruce Hornsby, Ray LaMontagne, Gregg Allman, Joe Walsh of The Eagles, and many others. With thanks to BD regular Kees Nijpels, we've got some great news for international fans. The Blu-ray release of the concert has been listed as an American (Region A) disc, but Kees confirms that it plays on European (Region B) Blu-ray player without any issues.

In other Waters related news, there's another performance of Ca Ira coming up this year, to follow on from the four shows in São Paulo, Brazil, in May. The opera is being performed on August 13th, 2013, at Götaplatsen, which is a public square in Gothenburg, Sweden, at the southern end of Kungsportsavenyn (The King's Gate Avenue), the city's main street. Anders Lindholtz tells us that the opera is kicking off the annual culture festival in the city, which runs from August 13th - 18th, and of course, Roger himself is in Gothenburg to perform at the Ullevi Stadium on August 17th. More details and ticketing information here.

Talking of Roger's 2013 Wall tour... Remko Bak has told us that the Gelredome website have noted that "Roger will be rehearsing for the tour in the Gelredome the days before the gig". He is performing there as the opening show of the tour, on July 18th, and tickets go on general sale on Friday through this direct Ticketmaster link. For those in the immediate area in the run-up to the show, you might get to hear some of the rehearsals!

Finally, Roger's career retrospective in New York City at the 92nd Street Y, scheduled for April 30th, has just been rescheduled to June 19th, 2013. Tickets for the event are now sold out; ticket-holders should hold on to their tickets as they will be valid for the new date.
