After a six-week respite, they finish up with two months of dates in South America and Mexico. (See dates below; tickets are also available at StubHub)

The Pink Floyd co-founder began the “Us + Them” tour in North America on May 26, 2017 and continued through Oct. 29. It’s billed as “songs from The Dark Side of the Moonthe WallAnimalsWish You Were Hereand More.”

The “More” refers to the 74-year-old’s 2017 album, Is This the Life We Really Want; Waters performed several of its songs midway through the evening’s first set.
