He is back! The leader of the late cult band Pink Floyd, Roger Waters, will present its new show Us + Them at Videotron Centre in Quebec City on October 6 2017.
After having charmed Québec City with his The Wall live show on the plains of Abraham in 2012, Rogers Waters is coming to Videotron Centre on October 6 2017 with its brand new show Us + Them. Tickets for general public will be on sale Friday October 21 2016 from 10:00Am. He will also perform 10 days later, October 16 2017, in Montreal at the Bell Centre. It is a must-see event, so be sure not to miss it!
As it is often the case with most of Waters’ tour, content is a well-kept secret, but the artist recently declared in an interview that “75 percent of it will be old material and 25 percent will be new, but it will be all connected by a general theme”. We can then expect not only to hear Pink Floyd’s greatest success, but also songs from his solo career, both recent and older ones.
On his last gig in Québec City, Waters offered a memorable performance with its mega-production The Wall, which only included songs form the Pink Floyd era. This time, in addition to Pink Floyd’s biggest success, we are expecting him to play songs from his solo career such as Three wishes, Home, Watching TV, and more from his 4 album. Waters recently declared that he may be releasing a new album as soon as spring of 2017, its first since the Opera “ça ira (There is hope)” released in 2005, that would precede its North American Tour in the summer. We do have good reason then to believe that he will playing newly composed songs, to the delight of its most faithful fans.
Since its very public split with Pink Floyd, and the ensuing law suits, Waters had a certain success with its solo career, but its world-wide fame is mainly due to the large-scale show that he produces, like the historic The Wall – Live in Berlin in 1990. Played in the “no-man’s-land” between West and Eastern Germany just after the fall of the Berlin wall, the show included many music stars such as Bryan Adams, Scorpion, Cindy Lauper and Van Morrison and gathered more than 300,000 people to Potsdamer Platz. The historic performance was captured on camera and released as a film the same year, and is considered the most historically relevant show of the century. Since then, Roger Waters took The Wall around the globe, with its 2010-2013 tour been, to this day, the third most grossing tour in music history.
