  2. Setlist: The setlist continued to be a major draw for the tour, featuring a mix of Roger Waters’ solo material and a wide selection of Pink Floyd classics. This included songs from iconic albums like “The Dark Side of the Moon,” “Wish You Were Here,” “Animals,” and “The Wall.” The varied setlist allowed Waters to showcase the breadth of his musical career.
  3. Band and Performance: Waters was accompanied by a group of talented musicians, many of whom had been part of the previous legs of the tour. Their proficiency ensured that both the solo and Pink Floyd material was performed to a high standard, respecting the original recordings while also bringing a fresh live energy.
