Pink Floyd’s Creative Visionary Gives Fans The Ultimate Concert Experience
Due to popular demand, rock icon ROGER WATERS has added two new dates to his critically acclaimed US + THEM Australian tour in February 2018, with second and final dates added for Sydney on Saturday February 3, and for Brisbane on Wednesday February 7.
It will be the first time Waters has toured Australia since his phenomenal The Wall Live broke sales records in 2012. The US + THEM tour has proved a massive success across North America this year, playing to full houses with over three quarters of a million tickets sold. It has garnered widespread critical acclaim, hailed as a triumph with “eye-popping” production and “spectacular” set-list drawn from classics in the Floyd canon and from Waters’ solo work.
Roger Waters’ legendary live performances are renowned as immersive sensory experiences featuring high class, state-of-the-art audio/visual production and breathtaking quad sound. Us + Them is no exception: following months of meticulous planning and visionary craft, it will inspire audiences with its powerful delivery.
Us + Them showcases highlights from Waters’ groundbreaking body of work and features songs from Pink Floyd’s greatest albums – The Dark Side of The Moon, The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here – plus new songs from Roger Waters’ album Is This the Life We Really Want?.
The tour title Us + Them is derived from the 1974 track ‘Us And Them’ on the multi-million selling Pink Floyd album The Dark Side of the Moon and has been hailed as the last great Pink Floyd spectacle.
Roger Waters Us + Them will commence at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena on February 2, 2018 followed by arena shows in Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and concluding in Perth.
Tickets for the second shows in Sydney February 3 and Brisbane on February 7 go on sale at 2pm (local time) on Thursday, November 23.
Live Nation members will enjoy an exciting pre-sale from 10am on Wednesday, November 22 to midday on Thursday, November 23. For more information on how to purchase, visit: livenation.com.au.

Critics across the US have applauded the production:
“The most striking cinematic theatrics ever employed on a rock stage. There should be Oscars for this kind of work.” – Billboard
“… Roger Waters is the greatest concert showman of all time.” – Houston Press
“From the start Waters’ thoughtful use of videos amplified the paranoia, anger and bitterness – but also the beauty and sadness – of songs that have resonated for more than 40 years.” – Chicago Tribune
“Waters sounds less like he’s dusting off older material and more like he’s rewriting them for a new era.” – Consequence of Sound
“Two-and-a-half-hour-long hit parade.” – Westword
“Waters, like legends do, delivered.” – The Oregonian
“Visually spectacular.” – San Antonio Express News
Roger Waters Us + Them marks the artist’s first tour since The Wall Live (2010-2013), his sold-out world tour which was seen by more than four million fans globally at 219 shows and remains the highest grossing tour by any solo artist in history.
