LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Former Pink Floyd mastermind Roger Waters will bring the curtain down on the annual Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in southern California on April 27, organizers said on Monday,

The other headliners during the three-day event in the desert town of Indio, 130 miles east of Los Angeles, are singer/songwriter Jack Johnson on Friday, April 25, and reunited British electronica combo Portishead on Saturday April 26. Waters will perform his band's opus "Dark Side of the Moon" in its entirety.

Friday's lineup also includes such acts as The Verve, Raconteurs, The Breeders, Fatboy Slim, Tegan and Sara, and Madness.

Saturday's offerings will also feature Kraftwerk, Death Cab for Cutie, Cafe Tacuba, Sasha & Digweed, Rilo Kiley, Dwight Yoakam.

Preceding Waters on Sunday will be the likes of Love & Rockets, My Morning Jacket, and Spiritualized.

Tickets go on sale Friday, priced at $269 for all three days, or $90 for a single day. Service fees apply.

Coachella, now in its ninth year, has become one of the premier festivals in the United States, where such events are not as common as they are in Europe.

Coachella promoter Goldenvoice said it would launch a three-day festival near New York City on August 8-10 at Liberty State Park in New Jersey. The lineup for the All Points West Music & Arts Festival will be announced in the coming weeks.

Why not, he spent most of '06 and a good part of '07 touring the world playing the whole piece in every major city you can think of. Nothing wrong with keeping it alive

Dwight Yoakam seems like an oddball of a choice there considering the other acts.

I was laughing at that also. Even the acts that are playing the same day as Waters are not what I would expect.

I'm of the opposite school of thought. That album, as great as it is, gets seriously overplayed... lay it to rest for a while....

Bought tickets for Roger Waters for an outdoor show 2 weeks later over here in the Netherlands. Looking forward to it; i only heard raving reviews. Saw Pink Floyd 4 times but never with Roger Waters. Also cool that he plays some songs from "Amused By Death" which is one of my favorite solo efforts from a Pink Floyd band member.
