Roger Waters Final Dress Rehearsal for US + THEM Tour

posted by Glenn Hamilton - 

Last night , Roger Waters asked a couple of thousand people -- family, friends, members of the media and contest winners -- if this is the tour they really want as he did an open rehearsal at the Meadowlands Arena in East Rutherford, New Jersey where he's been getting the tour ready for the past month.

Combining elements of his last two tours -- The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall -- plus last October's shows in Mexico and at Desert Trip, the show leans heavily on visuals as the screen behind the stage extends from the seats on stage left to the seats on stage right. And, taking a page out of U2's Innocence + Experience tour, a video screen descended from the rafters and divided the arena.

In terms of the set list, the two-and-a-half hour show concentrated on Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall, with four songs off of Is This the World We Really Want?, but none from his previous three solo albums.

The tour stops for 2 shows at Wells Fargo Center in Philly August 8th & 9th.
