Everyone loves Pink Floyd and one such reason is a deadly combination of Roger Waters and David Gilmour.
In a new interview with Canada based outlet The Star, Roger Waters shares the plans for final arena tour.
When asked about the plan, he said:
“I’m right on the cusp now of making the final decision of whether I will go on the road next summer in the United States and Canada and Mexico City, just because I love it there so much. So I may go on the road and do forty gigs next summer, which will mean if I do that I’ll be working 24 hours a day from now until the first gig just to try and get it together.”
He further added:
“Listen, at the moment, if you really wanna know, I’ll tell you what I’m doing today: I’ve figured out that if I do go on the road next year it’ll probably be the last time I do arenas because I’m 76 years old now and it’s not easy doing it — though I am fit, thank goodness and whatever — and I feel an obligation to do some of my best-known songs from the past. And one of those songs, I suspect, will be ‘Comfortably Numb.’”
Pink Floyd is one of the most commercially successful rock bands of all time. David Gilmour joined the band in the late ’60s with Waters becoming their primary lyricist. The duo devised the concepts behind the albums The Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), Animals (1977), The Wall (1979) and The Final Cut (1983). They are credited with influencing genres such as progressive rock and ambient music. The band was inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996 and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005. The band has sold more than 275 million records worldwide, with The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall two of the best-selling albums of all time.
