Roger Waters will return to North America in 2017 with a pioneering new tour, “Us + Them”, featuring classic Pink Floyd, some new songs and solo work. Roger Waters – Us + Them will tour the United States and Canada and will showcase highlights from Waters’ groundbreaking body of work. The title is derived from the 1974 track “Us And Them,” from the multi-million selling Pink Floyd album The Dark Side of the Moon. “We are going to take a new show on the road, the content is very secret,” said Roger Waters. “It’ll be a mixture of stuff from my long career, stuff from my years with Pink Floyd, some new things.  Probably 75% of it will be old material and 25% will be new, but it will be all connected by a general theme.  It will be a cool show, I promise you.  It’ll be spectacular like all my shows have been.”
