Does he actually have some solo stuff? For me Pink Floyd is David Gilmour.
He is doing DSOTM this tour, but he does have some not bad solo stuff (Pros & Cons is his best solo album). I've seen him in concert twice before and he always has a great band and they do the floyd stuff as good as Gilmour & co.

The way I see it, he is "pink" and the other guys are "floyd". :tongue:

His solo stuff was fairly rank. He always said that if he put "Pink Floyd" on the cover they would have sold millions. But they did not. I assume he is going to do a lot of Floyd material, probably most of the show will be. I think the ticket prices were really up there as well.

Have to give him full credit for The Wall, that was his baby
...truly astounding.

i have "pink floyd" dvds from both waters and gilmour. pretty obvious why they can't co-exist under the pink floyd banner.

i give a slight edge to gilmour, but only slight.

Yeah, I agree, nobody plays Floyd guitar solo's like Gilmour... I saw Floyd and Waters concerts about a month apart in the late 80's (Toronto & Hamilton). Floyd had more of the big show, theatrics and lighting etc, but musically I think I liked Waters better (Paul Carrack on keys and vocs).

I also saw the Pro's and Cons of Hitchhiking show at Massey Hall way back when (with Clapton on guitar) which was one of the better concerts I've ever seen. I assume this tour he will have Snowy White & Andy Fairweather-Low on guitars as usual. They are both great.

That is my question. Doyle Bramhall II would be cool too, he was amazing on "In The Flesh".

That one does not appear to be on ticketmaster at this time. Calgary, Edmonton and Chicago are the only ones up there right now.

Roger Waters will return to the United States and Canada this spring to perform Pink Floyd's epic The Dark Side Of The Moon in its entirety. The 24-date tour stops in arenas and amphitheatres beginning May 18 in West Palm Beach, Florida, and ends July 14 in Toronto.
"The Dark Side Of The Moon" - The Return Engagement comprises two full sets plus encores performed by Waters and his band, plus the state-of-the-art production fans have come to expect from Waters.
The first set will serve as an overview of his career including early Pink Floyd material - classic compositions from The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here, and The Final Cut - as well as from Waters' solo work, Amused To Death.
Set two will present Waters and the band performing The Dark Side Of The Moon, from start-to-finish.
The touring band features Andy Fairweather-Low (guitar and vocals), Snowy White (guitar), Dave Kilminster (guitar and vocals), Jon Carin (keyboards and vocals), Graham Broad (drums), Harry Waters (Hammond organ), and Ian Ritchie (saxophone) and Katie Kissoon, PP Arnold and Carol Kenyon (vocals).
The concerts utilize elaborate large-scale video projections and theatrical staging, while the music is delivered via a "360° quadraphonic sound system immersing the audience in a 3-dimensional hyperworld."
Waters performed The Dark Side Of The Moon for the first time as a solo artist during his 2006 world tour which included North American concerts last fall.
Prior to last year's trek, tour his last live performances of the work took place with Pink Floyd more than 30 years ago.

...throughly enjoyed the toronto show saturday. i missed doyle bramhall, but the new guy sure got a lot of mileage out of what looked like a stock tele through a marshall, although the bridge pickup was definitely not stock. i'm determined to find out if it was a joe barden.

amazing sound. roger had an obvious case of laryngitis and couldn't speak much above a croak, but he had no problem singing.
