The tour features a spectacular screen backdrop to showcase a variety of images; not surprisingly, many of them are political. The repertoire focuses on songs from the Pink Floyd albums: The Dark Side of the MoonThe WallAnimals and Wish You Were Here.

    Scored 2 free rsvps to see Roger Waters Sunday at the meadowlands for the dress rehearsal. I was always more a Gilmour fan but definitely looking forward to seeing and hearing what he’s got in store for the tour. Last time I saw him was ages ago when he went out with Clapton on gtr and Phil Collins on drums if I remember correctly. Even that didn’t compare to Floyd without him but hopefully this one will be more exciting. Really psyched to hear tunes off Animals and Wish you were here.
