Roger Waters’ ‘Us + Them’ concert film to finally be released digitally
Roger Waters 2017-2018 tour Us + Them is finally getting a digital release on June 16th this year. It marks the first time the film will be available online.
The concert film follows former Pink Floyd man Waters, as he set off on a mammoth 156-date tour all over the world.
Waters co-directed the film with Sam Evans, with live footage from his dates in Amsterdam and the UK being including in the film which hopes to.
The concert film sets out to capture the massive spectacle of the Us + Them tour, with its world-beating stage production which included a trippy rainbow laser pyramid.
The setlists were somewhat of a greatest hits set with many songs from Pink Floyd’s The Wall, Wish You Were Here, and Dark Side of the Moon, as well as the odd rarity thrown in for good measure from Animals.
The film is set to be released on YouTube on June 16th with a BluRay and DVD release to follow at a later date.
Waters recently reignited his feud with David Gilmour by revealing he has no control over Pink Floyd’s social media accounts. “One and half million of you have viewed our new version of Mother, which is lovely – it really warms my heart,” Waters said in a video which was posted on social media. “But it does bring up the question: Why is this video not available on a website that calls itself The Pink Floyd website? Well, the answer to that is because nothing from me is on the website – I am banned by David Gilmour from the website.”
Waters added: “About a year ago, I convened a sort of ‘Camp David’ for the surviving members of Pink Floyd at a hotel at an airport in London, where I proposed all kinds of measures to get past this awful impasse that we have and predicament we find ourself in. It bore no fruit, I’m sorry to say, but one of the things I asked for, I suggested that because whoever the 30 million of you are who subscribe to the web page, you do so because of the body of work the five of us created: That’s Syd, me, Rick, Nick and David over a number of years.
“And in consequence, it seems to me that it would be fair and correct if we should have equal access to you all and share our projects.”
Waters continued: “David thinks he owns it. I think he thinks that because I left the band in 1985, that he owns Pink Floyd, that he is Pink Floyd and I’m irrelevant and I should just keep my mouth shut.”
