Waters tour to cover U.S. in 2017

Roger Waters is following up his journey to the California desert with a 40-date tour of North America, to begin in late May.

roger waters of pink floyd and the WallThe “Us + Them” tour — the name a riff on the Pink Floyd song — is keyed to the release of a new Waters album, his first studio effort since 1992’s “Amused to Death.”

Tickets go on sale for the Waters tour Friday, Oct. 21. Presales begin Monday, Oct. 17, and there is a Citi Private Pass tie-in.

The tour won’t focus on a specific album, such as the epic and sometimes controversial “The Wall” tours of 2010-13.

“It’ll be a mixture of stuff from my long career, stuff from my years with Pink Floyd, some new things,” Waters said. “Probably 75% of it will be old material and 25% will be new, but it will be all connected by a general theme.”

Know for highly visual stage shows, Waters promises, “It’ll be spectacular.”

Waters is in between his performances at the two-week “Desert Trip” festival in Indio, Calif., which also featured ’60s veteran acts Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones and the Who.

Waters’ set the first weekend was almost exclusively Pink Floyd material, such as “Breathe,” “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun,” “Shine On You Crazy Diamond,” “Run Like Hell” and “Comfortably Numb.”
