Waters performed a total of 156 shows to 2.3M people on the Us + Them tour – taking in appearances in North America, Australia & New Zealand, Europe, Russia, Latin America and Mexico. The show features songs from Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall, Animals and Wish You Were Here, plus songs from Waters’ new album Is This The Life We Really Want?.

Speaking about the film, Waters’ manager, Mark Fenwick said: “Roger has been the innovator of theatre in arena and stadium rock and roll since the early 70’s. He is legendary for pushing the boundaries of surround sound and visual entertainment with his message of love and humanity through Us + Them”.

Released on August 31st 2018 is Nick Mason’s Unattended Luggage, a three-album CD or vinyl box set of his albums Nick Mason’s Fictitious SportsProfiles and White of the Eye.

These limited edition box sets will be available shortly before his acclaimed new band Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets begin their European tour at Cirkus in Stockholm on September 2nd.

Nick said, “These recordings hold a very special place for me in my musical life. Fictitious Sports developed initially from working with Mike Mantler, Carla Bley and Robert Wyatt on a couple of their projects, and benefited enormously from a whole crew of great musicians that I was introduced to by them at Grog Kill Studios in Woodstock.

“Profiles and White of the Eye were an extension of working with Rick Fenn on some advertising and short documentary film soundtracks, which then developed into something more.

“Listening back after 30-odd years, I’m delighted they are getting the reissue treatment. I’m rather hoping that sales will be sufficient to damage the market in the original rare vinyl versions!”

The three individual albums will all be available as a download and through streaming platforms. The box sets can be ordered here.
