Roger Waters (lead songwriter for Pink Floyd and pretty much wrote most of Dark Side of the Moon) is going to perform the entire Dark Side of the Moon album late this summer and into the fall. Many places are already sold out for tickets, but I know that some venues are just beginning to sell tickets. If you're a fan of Pink Floyd or Dark Side of the Moon (and have the chance too), you don't want to miss out on this opportunity!

He is planning to play other 'Floyd songs and a few from his solo career.



here are the venues in the US and Canada:

Quote:
-6 Sept PNC, Holmdel, NJ, USA

-8 Sept Tweeter Center, Boston, Mass, USA

-12 Sept Madison Square Garden, New York City, NY, USA

-13 Sept Madison Square Garden, New York City, NY, USA

-15 Sept Jones Beach, Wantagh, NY, USA

-16 Sept Tweeter Center, Camden, NJ, USA

-18 Sept The Palace, Detroit, MI, USA

-20 Sept Air Canada Centre, Toronto, Canada

-21 Sept Bell Centre, Montreal, Canada

-23 Sept Nissan Center, Bristow, VA, USA

-24 Sept Post Gazette Pavilion, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

-27 Sept Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, OH, USA

-29 Sept First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre, Chicago, IL, USA

-30 Sept Verizon Wireless, Indianapolis, IN, USA

-3 Oct Cricket Pavilion, Phoenix, AZ, USA

-5 Oct Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles, CA, USA

-6 Oct Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles, CA, USA

-8 Oct Theater Under The Stars, Las Vegas, NV, USA

-10 Oct Shoreline Amphitheatre, San Francisco, CA, USA

-12 Oct Key Arena, Seattle, WA, USA



There is also talk that the sound system and effects to go along with this show (especially Dark Side of the Moon) are going to be insane!



I'm going to the Tweeter Center on September 8th with my best friend.

Dammit, another desirable event confined entirely within the USA.



I can't remember, but didn't Gilmour have more influence on DSotM?

I was just going to post that. I like Floyd, but DSOTM is so played out for me. I may go though because I like Gilmore and cross my fingers that maybe he'll play some of his solo stuff too.



ETA: Duh, its Water's who is touring. I wish it was Gilmour though

Roger wrote pretty much all of the lyrics for Dark Side of the Moon, even though it's Dave's guitar work and vocals that make much of it as great as it is...

You have no idea how big of a fan I am of Pink Floyd, I was a mere tot when I stood in line at the record store to get one of the first copies of 'The Final Cut'. I am not trying to rain on your parade, I'm just posting this for anyone who may be interested and expressing why I, unfortunately, would never see Roger Waters:



ERIC CLAPTON has agreed to headline a controversial seven-hour concert supporting the Countryside Alliance in its fight to lift the ban on fox hunting in the UK. The TEARS IN HEAVEN hitmaker, who is a keen game shooter, will join fellow rockers BRYAN FERRY, PINK FLOYD's ROGER WATERS and NICK MASON, ROGER DALTREY of THE WHO and GENESIS guitarist MIKE RUTHERFORD at the gig at Highclere Castle in Berkshire this summer (06). Clapton's spokesperson confirmed last night (29APR06), "Eric supports the Countryside Alliance. He doesn't hunt himself, but does enjoy rural pursuits such as fishing and shooting. "He supports the Alliance's pursuit to scrap the ban on the basis that he doesn't agree with the state's interference with people's private pursuits." The ban on fox hunting was imposed by the British government in February (06), and the concert is expected to face opposition from animal rights activists.
