The “In the Flesh” tour by Roger Waters, which continued into 2000 following its commencement in 1999, was a significant phase in his solo career, especially in terms of reconnecting with North American audiences. This tour was marked by its expansive setlists and high-quality performances. Here are some key points about the 2000 leg of the “In the Flesh” tour:

  1. Tour Continuation: After the success of the 1999 leg, Waters extended the “In the Flesh” tour into 2000. This extension allowed more fans across North America to experience his live performances, which had been eagerly anticipated.
  2. Setlist: The tour was renowned for its diverse setlist, which included a broad range of Waters’ solo material as well as a significant number of Pink Floyd classics. Songs from albums such as “The Dark Side of the Moon,” “Wish You Were Here,” “Animals,” and “The Wall” were featured, along with selections from Waters’ solo albums like “Amused to Death.”
  3. Band Lineup: The band accompanying Waters consisted of top-tier musicians, ensuring high-quality renditions of both his solo work and Pink Floyd material. The lineup included notable artists such as guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, guitarist and bassist Andy Fairweather Low, keyboardist Jon Carin, and drummer Graham Broad, among others.
  4. Production and Performance: Unlike Waters’ more theatrical productions like “The Wall,” the “In the Flesh” tour focused more on the music and performance. The stage setup, while visually impressive with sophisticated lighting and sound systems, was less elaborate in terms of theatrical elements, putting the emphasis squarely on the musical experience.
  5. Audience Reception: The 2000 leg of the tour was well received by audiences, who appreciated the opportunity to hear a wide range of Waters’ repertoire live. The performances were praised for their musicality and the way they captured the essence of both Waters’ solo career and his time with Pink Floyd.
  6. Legacy and Impact: This tour played a crucial role in reaffirming Roger Waters’ status as a solo artist capable of drawing large audiences. It also helped bridge the gap between his work with Pink Floyd and his solo compositions, presenting them as part of a cohesive musical journey.
  7. Recordings and Releases: The tour was later commemorated with the release of a live album and DVD, titled “In the Flesh – Live,” which captured the essence of these performances and allowed a wider audience to experience the tour.

The “In the Flesh” tour in 2000 continued to build on the success of the 1999 leg, cementing Roger Waters’ reputation as a formidable live performer and showcasing his extensive and varied musical catalog.
