Roger Waters Tour 2024

There have been no announcements yet about a Roger Waters Tour in 2024 but there are some things in the works and other possibilities. Firstly, a lot of time and money was spent on the Roger Waters Rredux Dark Side of the Moon London Palladium Shows. There were only two performances so there could be the possibility of more. Given the divided opinion about the album and two London Palladium shows, it is perhaps not so likely to continue. Secondly, Roger Waters Memoirs are nearing completion and feature Roger reading them as an audio book in addition the the written word. Watch this space about Roger Waters developments in 2024.

Roger Waters Major Tour Overview

Roger Waters, co-founder and principal songwriter of the legendary rock band Pink Floyd, has had a prolific solo career marked by several notable tours, each with its own unique theme and musical emphasis. Here’s an overview of his major tours over the years:

  1. The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking Tour (1984-1985): This was Roger Waters’ first solo tour, promoting his album “The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking.” The tour featured a narrative style, with songs telling a story throughout the concert. It was known for its theatrical elements and the use of visual projections.
  2. Radio K.A.O.S. Tour (1987): Accompanying his second solo album, “Radio K.A.O.S.,” this tour was highly conceptual, blending music with a storyline about a wheelchair-bound boy who could hear radio waves in his head. The shows were multimedia experiences, incorporating innovative sound and visual effects.
  3. The Wall – Live in Berlin (1990): This was a one-off performance by Waters and numerous guest artists, commemorating the fall of the Berlin Wall. Held at the vacant terrain between Potsdamer Platz and the Brandenburg Gate, it remains one of the most ambitious rock concerts ever staged.
  4. In the Flesh Tour (1999-2002): This tour marked Waters’ return to large-scale touring and featured a mix of solo work and Pink Floyd classics. It was notable for its elaborate stage designs and the inclusion of songs that Pink Floyd had rarely performed live.
  5. The Dark Side of the Moon Live (2006-2008): Waters performed the Pink Floyd album “The Dark Side of the Moon” in its entirety, along with a mix of his solo material and other Pink Floyd songs. The tour was acclaimed for its musical performance and the use of advanced visual and sound technology.
  6. The Wall Live (2010-2013): One of the highest-grossing tours of all time, this tour featured a complete performance of the Pink Floyd album “The Wall.” It was a massive theatrical production, known for its enormous wall built on stage during the show, state-of-the-art visuals, and powerful anti-war message.
  7. Us + Them Tour (2017-2018): This tour supported his album “Is This the Life We Really Want?” and featured a mix of solo work and Pink Floyd songs. It was notable for its political commentary and stunning visual production, including the use of drones and immersive sound.
  8. This Is Not a Drill (2022): Originally planned for 2020 but postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this tour is advertised as a “rock and roll spectacle” and is expected to feature a mix of his classic material and messages of social and political importance.

Each of these tours has not only showcased Waters’ musical evolution but also reflected his deep engagement with socio-political themes, making them more than just musical events, but powerful cultural statements.
