Roger Waters is returning to Ireland next summer as part of his brand new tour.

'Roger Waters Us + Them' will feature classics from Pink Floyd’s back catalogue, as well new and solo material.

The tour will stop at Dublin’s 3Arena on June 26th, and marks Waters first European tour since The Wall Live - his sold-out world tour which is the highest grossing tour by any solo artist in history.

“We are going to take a new show on the road,” said Roger Waters. “It’ll be a mixture of stuff from my long career, stuff from my years with Pink Floyd, some new things.

“Probably 80% of it will be old material and 20% 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.”

The tour title comes from the 1974 track “Us And Them,” from the multi-million selling Pink Floyd album The Dark Side of the Moon.

Tickets go on sale Thursday 12 October at 9am from all usual outlets.
