Roger WatersUs+ThemGeorge Roger Waters is an English singer, songwriter, bassist, and composer. In 1965, he co-founded the progressive rock band Pink Floyd with drummer Nick Mason, keyboardist Rick Wright, and guitarist, singer, and songwriter Syd Barrett. Waters initially served as the group`s bassist, but following the departure of Barrett in 1968, he also became their lyricist, co-lead vocalist, and conceptual leader.Pink Floyd achieved international success with the concept albums The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and The Wall. By the early 1980s, they had become one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful groups in the history of popular music; by 2013, they had sold more than 250 million albums worldwide. Amid creative differences, Waters left in 1985 and began a legal dispute with the remaining members over their use of the band`s name and material. They settled out of court in 1987, and nearly eighteen years passed before he performed with them again.Waters` solo work includes the studio albums The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking, Radio K.A.O.S., Amused to Death, and Is This the Life We Really Want?. In 1990, he staged one of the largest and most extravagant rock concerts in history, The Wall – Live in Berlin, with an official attendance of 200,000. As a member of Pink Floyd, he was inducted into the U.S. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996 and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005. In the same year he released Ça Ira, an opera in three acts translated from Étienne and Nadine Roda-Gils` libretto about the French Revolution. Later that year, he reunited with Pink Floyd bandmates Mason, Wright and David Gilmour for the Live 8 global awareness event; it was the group`s first appearance with Waters since 1981. He has toured extensively as a solo act since 1999 and played The Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety for his world tour of 2006–2008. In 2010, he began The Wall Live and in 2011 Gilmour and Mason appeared with him during a performance of the double-album in London. As of 2017, the tour is the highest-grossing of all time by a solo artist.

The concert was epic!!! It should have 7 stars here. We love you dearly, Mr. Waters! Please come back :) We also love your band and team responsible for visual effects and sound :) But you, sir, our number one :) ❤️
officially the best concert I have ever seen in my life. And I saw more than 130 concerts so far. This one, for the quality of the sound, the performance, the music, and the spectacular exhibition and games of lights and balloons and creativity and...well, let's say that I'm still not able to sleep since the excitement. Thanks Mr Waters. Thanks deeply from my heart!

The show was fantastic. From the power station coming out above the crowd, to the backing singers and the light show......amazing!!!! Well worth the money. And Trump is a Bawbag......now that stole the show!!!
Absolutely amazing performance from Roger Waters and band .Graphic and lighting were first class. Sound was great.Bit disappointed that the ladies t-shirt didn’t have the tour dates on the back and that it cost £5 more than the men’s t-shirt?!!!

Je le carré or qui gâche la fête, une concert comme ça se vit debout et dans l'ambiance comme à l'époque où il n'y avait aucune barrière, où le 1er arrivé était le mieux placé... Triste réalité que tjr faire plus de fric et tjr le meilleur à ceux qui on de l'argent...
