Roger Waters Details 'Spectacular' 'Us + Them' Tour
Roger Waters will be staging what he's dubbed the 'Us + Them' tour next year.

Four years after concluding his massive The Wall trek, Roger Waters will stage another Homeric North American tour beginning next summer. The set list for what he's dubbed the Us + Them tour will focus heavily on material he recorded with Pink Floyd alongside new songs and past solo works. The singer is promising a show with brilliant visuals and quad sound.

"We are going to take a new show on the road, the content is very secret," Waters said in a statement. "It'll be a mixture of stuff from my long career, stuff from my years with Pink Floyd, some new things. Probably 75 percent of it will be old material and 25 percent will be new, but it will be all connected by a general theme. It'll be spectacular like all my shows have been."

The tour will kick off in Kansas City on May 26th and work its way to both coasts of North America and Canada. Waters will also be offering VIP packages and presales (with the exception of Canadian dates) beginning on October 17th. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on October 21st.

Waters' announcement comes on the heels of the first weekend of Desert Trip, a festival on the grounds where Coachella is held that featured sets by the Pink Floyd founder, the Who, Paul McCartney, Neil Young, the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan. 

Waters used his staging and part of his set to criticize Donald Trump, displaying an image of the Republican presidential nominee juxtaposed with the words "ignorant," "lying," "racist" and "sexist" during Animals' "Pigs (Three Different Ones)." "We don't want a wall that separates us from our sister, our mother earth or from each other," Waters told the crowd. He and all of the artists will be performing again this weekend for a second round of Desert Trip.
