Sorry if this was alredy posted.

Roger Waters will return to the United States and Canada this spring to perform Pink Floyd's epic The Dark Side Of The Moon in its entirety. The 24-date tour stops in arenas and amphitheatres beginning May 18 in West Palm Beach, Florida, and ends July 14 in Toronto.

"The Dark Side Of The Moon" - The Return Engagement comprises two full sets plus encores performed by Waters and his band, plus the state-of-the-art production fans have come to expect from Waters.

The first set will serve as an overview of his career including early Pink Floyd material - classic compositions from The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here, and The Final Cut - as well as from Waters' solo work, Amused To Death.

Set two will present Waters and the band performing The Dark Side Of The Moon, from start-to-finish.

The touring 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 concerts utilize elaborate large-scale video projections and theatrical staging, while the music is delivered via a "360° quadraphonic sound system immersing the audience in a 3-dimensional hyperworld."

Waters performed The Dark Side Of The Moon for the first time as a solo artist during his 2006 world tour which included North American concerts last fall.

Prior to last year's trek, tour his last live performances of the work took place with Pink Floyd more than 30 years ago.
