Roger Waters Us + Them physical releases (Blu-ray, 3LP, 2CD, DVD)

The news that many of you have been waiting for - the physical editions of the Roger Waters Us + Them concert film have now been announced, and will be released on October 2nd, 2020.

Whilst the digital edition is now available to purchase or rent from your preferred outlet in 4K, HD and SD digital formats, we've had a lot of emails and messages asking us when people can get their hands on the Blu-ray, DVD, CD or 3LP vinyl of this spectacular recording. Whether you go for the digital download, the Blu-ray, or DVD, you'll have access to two additional concert songs not included in the original film shown in cinemas - Comfortably Numb and Smell The Roses - along with the short but fascinating documentary style feature A Fleeting Glimpse, which looks behind the scenes.

Let's take a closer look at the contents. The 2CD set features the show (minus C Numb and Roses) split across the two discs, with the split coming where the intermission of the show was. So, you have on disc one: Intro / Speak To Me / Breathe / One Of These Days / Time / Breathe (Reprise) / The Great Gig In The Sky / Welcome To The Machine / Deja Vu / The Last Refugee / Picture That / Wish You Were Here / The Happiest Days Of Our Lives / Another Brick In The Wall Pt 2 and 3. Turning to the second disc, this contains: Dogs / Pigs (3 Different Ones) / Money / Us And Them / Brain Damage / Eclipse / The Last Refugee (Reprise) / Deja Vu (Reprise).

The 3LP vinyl edition follows the above track list, but is split as follows: LP1 Side A: Intro - The Great Gig In The Sky; LP1 Side B: Welcome To The Machine - The Last Refugee; LP2 Side C: Picture That - Another Brick In The Wall Pt 3; LP2 Side D: Dogs; LP3 Side E: Pigs (3 Different Ones) - Money; LP3 Side F: Us And Them - Deja Vu (Reprise).

The Blu-ray and DVD editions have the same contents but obviously the Blu-ray will be presenting the material in higher quality. These present the whole show (as per the 2CD track listing, but obviously not split), along with the live performances of Comfortably Numb and Smell The Roses, and the documentary A Fleeting Glimpse.

Needless to say, this is bound to be a popular release when it appears on October 2nd.

A Theatre For Dreamers audiobook releases include David Gilmour music Print E-mail

A Theatre For Dreamers audiobook - Polly Samson with David Gilmour

David Gilmour will release his first new song in five years - Yes, I Have Ghosts - via an upcoming audiobook (available from June 25th) for A Theatre for Dreamers, the latest novel by Gilmour's wife and long-time collaborator, Polly Samson. The recording also features music Gilmour wrote for the story to accompany Samson's narration. The wide release of Yes, I Have Ghosts will follow the audiobook, becoming available a week later.

David said: "Polly's vivid and poetic writing, coupled with her very natural narration voice, made joining forces to produce the audio version of A Theatre for Dreamers a fantastic and fulfilling experience. The two worlds seem to seamlessly link, and music can really help to bring audiobooks to life in unexpected new ways. We were also lucky to have our daughter Romany in lockdown with us to contribute harp and additional vocals. I am really pleased and proud of how Polly's words and my music have entwined in this audio version of A Theatre for Dreamers."

Polly noted that "We didn't set out to work together on the audiobook, but lockdown meant I had to narrate and I'm grateful to David for stepping into the producer's chair. We wanted to explore the creative possibilities of the format and produce something new, refreshing and innovative. Collaborating with David - as I have done many times over the last 30 years, writing songs for both Pink Floyd and his solo albums - we were able to bring together the worlds of literature and music to enhance the listening experience and connect with audiences in a way which I don't think has been done before."

David said on his Facebook page that he was "thrilled with how this has worked out. Sad for the actor who had to pull out but Polly Samson's narration surprised us all and it's been a great project for me during lockdown to also add some instrumental passages between chapters and to record the A Theatre for Dreamers inspired song, Yes, I Have Ghosts, with the help of our daughter, Romany."

This release will be available in a variety of formats. On June 25th, it will become available via Amazon UK as part of its Audible offering in an unabridged format, lasting 10 hours and 25 minutes. Coming on September 1st are a few other formats, looking at the publisher's (W. F. Howes Ltd) website - unabridged eAudio, an unabridged 10CD set, and an unabridged 1CD with the audio in MP3 format. Ordering details/links for these other formats aren't yet available, but we will update you when these are known, as indeed we will when details of the separate release of Yes, I Have Ghosts become available.

A Theatre For Dreamers evening event

In a move that isn't overly unexpected with the current global situation with COVID-19, with the UK still experiencing significant deaths and infections, the already rescheduled three evenings presenting A Theatre for Dreamers - An Evening of Words and Music with Polly Samson and David Gilmour have been rescheduled to June 2021.

All tickets will be valid for the new shows, which have been previewed via The Von Trapped Family broadcasts on Polly's Facebook page, and any new purchases will receive a signed copy of the hardback version of the book by Polly Samson and a signed photo by Polly and David Gilmour, which can be collected on the night of the rescheduled shows from the venues themselves.

Existing ticket holders should have already received their book and photo through the post.

Here are the revised dates, all in England:

  • Friday 25th June 2021 - Manchester, Royal Northern College of Music
  • Saturday 26th June 2021 - Birmingham, Town Hall
  • Monday 28th June 2021 - London, Central Hall Westminster
