Roger Waters US Tour - Concert and Set Details

Roger Waters, will perform "The Dark Side Of The Moon" in its entirety during his highly-anticipated upcoming North American concert tour.

Waters is slated to play 19 concerts in 18 venues beginning September 6
at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey and ending October 12 at
the Key Arena in Seattle, Washington. Stops on the tour include a two-night
run at New York's Madison Square Garden as well as concerts at the
Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and San Francisco's fabled Shoreline
Amphitheatre.

The eagerly-awaited Roger Waters concert tour will combine an evening's
worth of music --comprised of two sets plus encores-- with state-of-the-art
staging, lighting and sound.

Set One will be a comprehensive overview of Waters' music including
early Pink Floyd material; classic compositions from the masterpiece "The
Wall"; beloved pieces from "Animals," "Wish You Were Here," and "The Final
Cut"; and songs from Waters' solo tour de force: "Amused To Death."

Set Two will consist of Roger Waters and full band performing "The Dark
Side Of The Moon," one of the defining works of rock music history, from
start-to-finish. Waters last performed "The Dark Side Of The Moon" live in
America with Pink Floyd more than 30 years ago.

The Roger Waters band features Andy Fairweather-Low (guitar and
vocals), Snowy White (guitar), Dave Kilminster (guitar and vocals), Jon
Carin (keyboards and vocals), Graham Broad (drums), Harry Waters (Hammond
organ), and Ian Ritchie (saxophone) and Katie Kissoon, PP Arnold and Carol
Kenyon (vocals).

The Roger Waters concerts will utilize elaborate large-scale video
projections and theatrical staging to underscore and accentuate the power
of the music which is delivered via a state-of-the-art 3600 quadraphonic
sound system immersing the audience in a 3-dimensional hyperworld.

The Roger Waters North American tour dates will follow the artist's
series of European concerts in June and July.

Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side Of The Moon" was originally released in
1973 immediately establishing a standard of excellence for its advanced
blend of progressive music, philosophical themes, and sonic exploration. A
brilliantly-wrought song-cycle detailing the conundrums of humanity's place
in a modern technocracy, "The Dark Side Of The Moon" achieved a soulful
austerity of mood while foreshadowing the role of electronica in an
emerging youth culture.

"The Dark Side Of The Moon" reached an unparalleled level of aesthetic
and commercial success becoming one of the world's top-selling albums of
all time (with global sales totaling more than 34 million copies). The
album remained in the Billboard Top 200 best-selling albums chart for a
record-breaking 15 years and, as recently as 2003, occupied the #1 spot on
the Billboard Pop Catalog chart. In 2004, the album was still selling more
than 8,000 copies a week. It has been estimated that 1 in every 14
Americans under the age of 50 owns a copy of "The Dark Side Of The Moon."
