Roger Waters Announces Additional 2017 Tour Dates
Roger Waters Announces Additional 2017 Tour Dates
Roger Waters has added more dates to his upcoming tour. Of the 11 new dates, nine are concerts in new cities. Denver and Los Angeles, previously announced for shows, now have additional nights.
The Us + Them North American Tour is set to launch on May 26 in Kansas City and wrap up on Oct. 28 in Vancouver. Just-announced cities on the tour include Oakland, New Orleans, Nashville and Cleveland.
You can see the full list of 2017 tour dates below.
Waters has a new album set for release soon too. While no date has been announced yet for Is This The Life We Really Want?, the record will most likely be out around the time of the tour’s start this summer.
Waters released a video preview of the new album last week. The record will be Waters’ first solo album since 1992’s Amused to Death, and is reportedly another concept piece. “It’s pondering not just why we are killing the children, it’s also the question of how do we take these moments of love – if we are granted any in our lives – and allow that love to shine on the rest of existence, on others,” Waters said in an interview last year.
The former Pink Floyd member has also shown interest recently in reuniting with the surviving members of his old band — David Gilmour and Nick Mason — for a show at Glastonbury, if guitarist Gilmour is interested. Relations between the pair have been strained since Waters left the band in 1985. Waters also said he’s thinking about staging The Wall, Pink Floyd’s 1979 epic, at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Tickets for Waters’ tour — which will include Pink Floyd songs as well as Waters solo material — are available at his website. The new dates go on sale Feb. 27.
