Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Roger Waters’ pioneering Us + Them Tour will come the UK next summer. Waters is set to play in Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham with his critically acclaimed show in summer 2018. In addition the rock icon is set to play London’s British Summer Time at Hyde Park on 6 July; the first headliner to be announced for the series of central London shows.
Currently touring the United States, Us + Them has received rave reviews for a spectacular setlist and the “eye-popping” production.
The show will feature tracks from Pink Floyd’s greatest albums The Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here and more, plus new songs from his latest best-selling album Is This the Life We Really Want?.
Waters’ first solo album in 25 years, Is This The Life We Really Want? is a full-on political rock album. The former Pink Floyd member recorded the 12-track album with the help of Radiohead-producer Nigel Godrich.
Us + Them marks Roger Waters’ first return to the UK since his sold-out world tour The Wall Live in 2010-2013, which was seen by more than four million fans globally.

29 June – The SSE Hydro, Glasgow

3 July – Manchester Arena
6 July – Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time Hyde Park, London
7 July – Birmingham Arena
Roger Waters – Us + Them will tour Europe and showcase highlights from Waters’ groundbreaking body of work.
