Roger Waters Concert in Montevideo Was A Rainy Affair

Roger Waters concert at Estadio Centenario in Montevideo, Uruguay was a rainy affair. The arena tour didn’t suffer the consequences of rain thankfully. However, now that Roger is back to doing outdoor concerts to large audiences, he is getting lots of rain pouring down on him. Roger Water’s guitarist David Kilminster reported that his equipment had been damaged by the storms. He said on his Twitter, “Apologies for the technical problems, but apparently if you throw a bucket of water over all my guitar pedals, cables, effects switcher etc then they really don’t like it…”. The Concert, on the 17th November 2023, is one of the final performances of the rather epic This Is Not A Drill Tour 2023. Roger Waters Tour 2024? There are 8 concerts remaining on the current Roger Waters tour. We will then have to wait and see what is announced next. I am hoping he...

Roger Waters Awarded Pedro Ernesto Medal in Brazil

Roger Waters Pedro Ernesto Medal was awarded in Rio de Janeiro today ahead of his concert there tonight. Monica Benicio, an activist, gave the award to Roger. Rio de Janeiro City Council’s highest honour it can give is this particular medal, therefore Roger is lucky to have it. He will perform at the Estadio Olympico using the traditional format of stage at one end with the fans in front. On his tour up to now, he has used the “in the round” concept. This is where the band are in the centre of the area with the fans all around. Check out my Manchester photos to see. Roger Waters Accepting his Award A happy Roger said, “My brothers and sisters in Rio give me such hope, they are so beautiful.” Roger seems rather pleased to receive the accolade. Particularly at a time when his political views have caused controversy. In...

Roger Waters Tour is coming to an end soon in December. After an amazing run of concerts which started in July 2022, This Is Not A Drill Tour is set to conclude on 9th December 2023. The final venue is Estadio Olimpico in Ecuador. The tour was billed Roger’s “first farewell tour” jokingly referring to the trend of older artists saying its their last, then doing more! The original tour schedule, for Roger Waters’ seventh solo tour, was supposed to start around the time of Covid. This was postponed. The world went into turmoil. There would be further turmoil during this tour, with controversies being reported in the media. What will 2024 bring? Memoirs, perhaps a REDUX tour given the cost of the two nights at London Palladium, an unlikely extension of the This Is Not A Drill tour?

Roger Waters London Palladium Video – Watch Now

Roger Waters and his 14 strong army of musicians performed Dark Side of the Moon Redux at The London Palladium. It divided opinion in the media and online from fans in the two shows Sunday and Monday. The show was split in two. The first half saw Roger talking at the audience at length about Julian Assange and Donald his pet duck. Crazy stuff. He also talked about his forthcoming memoirs. Title is “I’ll See You On The Dark Side Of The Moon: Memoirs Of A Lanky Prick”. The second half was the Dark Side performance that fans had paid big money to watch. Some VIP packages allowed fans to obtain lots of goodies like posters. Tickets cost eye watering amounts on the primary ticket website. Anyway, part of the evening, this 20 minute video, was played for the audience. The video explains some of the new work that Roger...
