Roger Waters will be heading out on an all new, full-out tour spectacular in 2017, as he embarks on his Us + Them Tour across the U.S. and Canada, which brings him to Chicago for two dates, July 22-23.

Tickets, $55-$250, for the United Center shows in Chicago will go on sale at 10 a.m. Oct 21 at

In a statement announcing the tour, Waters said: “We are going to take a new show on the road, the content is very secret. It’ll be a mixture of stuff from my long career, stuff from my years with Pink Floyd, some new things. Probably 75 percent of it will be old material and 25 percent will be new, but it will be all connected by a general theme. It will be a cool show, I promise you. It’ll be spectacular like all my shows have been.”

In an interview on, Waters explains the name of the tour (which comes from the “Us and Them” cut from the iconic Pink Floyd album “Dark Side of the Moon”:

“The new show’s going to be called ‘Us + Them’ because it’s really specifically about the line from this 1973 song ‘Us and Them’ that goes ‘With, without/And who’ll deny that’s what the fighting’s all about.’ Because the main message that I have to propagate, if I can, is embodied in the (concept) that the idea of perpetual war, which has been embraced by the neocons particularly in the United States of America, is an entirely wrong way for the human race to live… There’s a different way of organizing the human race that is better than this way. This way is driven by the greed of the few.”

Rogers most recently performed last weekend at the Desert Trip music festival, along with other icons of pop/rock including Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, Neil Young and Nobel Prize winner Bob Dylan.
