Roger Waters, co-founder and principal songwriter of the archetypal progressive rock band Pink Floyd will kick off his current tour in Florida. The Dark Side Of The Moon combines a full evening's worth of music (comprised of two sets plus encores) performed by Roger Waters and full band with state-of-the-art staging, lighting and sound. Set One provides a comprehensive overview of Waters' music including early Pink Floyd material; classic compositions from the masterpiece The Wall; beloved pieces from Animals, Wish You Were Here, and The Final Cut. Plus there will be songs from Waters' solo tour de force Amused To Death.
Tickets:
$133.75, $75, $55, $29.50
All tickets are subject to applicable taxes, and service and handling charges.
Set Two presents Roger Waters and band performing The Dark Side Of The Moon, one of the defining works of rock music history, from start-to-finish. Pink Floyd's The Dark Side Of The Moon was originally released in 1973, immediately establishing a standard of excellence for its advanced blend of progressive music, philosophical themes, and sonic exploration. A brilliantly-wrought song-cycle detailing the conundrums of humanity's place in a modern technocracy, The Dark Side Of The Moon achieved a soulful austerity of mood while foreshadowing the role of electronica in an emerging youth culture.

The Dark Side Of The Moon reached an unparalleled level of aesthetic and commercial success becoming one of the world's top-selling albums of all time (with global sales totaling more than 34 million copies). The album remained in the Billboard Top 200 best-selling albums chart for a record-breaking 15 years and, as recently as 2003, occupied the #1 spot on the Billboard Pop Catalog chart. In 2004, the album was still selling more than 8,000 copies a week.

It has been estimated that 1 in every 14 Americans under the age of 50 owns a copy of The Dark Side Of The Moon.

Need to find a good cow pasture nearby. LOL

I am one of those fourteen. However, I saw Waters on his last tour, and it was one of the worst concert moments of my life.

The music was great, until it reached this interminable political tirade, bashing Bush, Blair, and America in general. It was awful, and it seemed to go on forever.

Roger Waters is a lyrical genius, but he has gone genuinly insane over the past few years. It's tough to stomach him now. (But I still love Pink Floyd).

Well.....lesee....I saw Pink Floyd on The Dark Side of the Moon tour at Roosevelt Stadium (and even remember a few parts of it)....until I stopped in the middle of 1&9 on the way home. My friends yelled DORTH whatcha doin? I said stoping for the red light - they said ARSE - that red light is on a building on the other side of the highway! OOOPPSS!..........oh I digress.....

Anywho - yeah, great show way back then - and political. Saw the Roger Waters show this past summer when again he did Dark Side of the Moon - and yeppers....it got political.....and I did not agree with it all, but I was entertained beginning with the film of the radio and cigs to them letting the pig go and then crossing in front of the full moon down the Arts Center on a beautiful summer night, to the parking lot after the show.

I also saw CSN&Y this past summer - and SHOCKER they got political too! Hell - isn't that what alot of the generation did back in the day? That is how voices were heard. Bottom line for me - I enjoy music, and a few political songs or points thrown in, just doesn't ruin a show for me.

Got a phone call from a buddy in Cleveland after his performance there and he loved it, didn't mention the political ranting, but I'm a bit radical, so I wouldn't mind.

Little different opinion here - I saw Roger when he came through last fall at MSG. Yes - there was some political commentary, and yes; he obviously hates Bush. But I didn't feel it ruined the show or took overly long (and I'm certainly not on the left with all the Bush flame throwers).

It was a great show (Nick Mason played drums at my show) and Roger paced the stage all night consciously looking at the fans, catching eyes and trying to make connections, smiling and even a few times silently mouthing "thank you" to some. There was a lot of mutual appreciation from what I could see. Here's a pic or two:

Ahhhh - great pictures! I have a pic of the pig right in front of the moon on my phone...and I agree, he was EXTREMLEY gracious throughout the show.

How did you like the film - of the radio, the hand, the smokes and so so on........?

The radio shot was pretty cool, I like how the person accidentally dialed to an ABBA song and then quickly changed it.

I love Roger Waters - have never seen him do a bad show. Am taking my son and nephew and their wives to the Omaha show for their 30th b-days (our 2nd time of seeing Roger together).
