Roger Waters kicks off his Us + Them Tour tonight in Kansas City

Credit: Kate IzorRoger Waters‘ expansive Us + Them Tour of North America gets underway this evening in Kansas City, Missouri. The 55-date trek is mapped out through an October 28 concert in Vancouver, Canada.

As seen during his rehearsal concert last Sunday in East Rutherford, New Jersey, the ex-Pink Floyd singer/bassist will be playing a set made up mainly of well-known songs from his old band’s classic 1970s albums, while also featuring several tunes from his forthcoming solo album, Is This the Life We Really Want?

Concertgoers will be treated to a selection of hits and fan favorites from Meddle, The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall. Waters’ touring band includes the powerful vocal duo of Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig from the indie-pop group Lucius, who previously performed with Roger at the 2016 Desert Trip festival and the 2015 Newport Folk Festival.

The show features a massive high-def screen onstage that displays captivating videos created to accompany each song, many of which reflect the pointed political and social commentary inherent in Waters’ tunes. Adding to the concert are a series of other video screens that will drop from the ceiling and will stretch across the center of each venue. Fans also can expect a visit from a drone-controlled flying pig.
