Happy Birthday, Roger Waters!

The combined wishes of all of us on the Brain Damage team, along no doubt with many of you reading this, go to Roger Waters, who celebrates his 77th birthday today! Roger was born in Great Bookham, Surrey, in 1943, moving to Cambridge when he was two years old. It was there that he met, and became childhood friends with, a number of key people in the story of Pink Floyd. Of course, Roger has been extremely busy over the last few years, having successfully taken Dark Side Of The Moon on tour in 2006, through to 2008. On completing that, he immediately started work on a new version of The Wall – which finally opened in September 2010. That tour was spectacularly successful, wrapping up in Paris for show number 217 in September 2013. Recordings of that tour turned into the film, shown in cinemas and released on DVD/Blu-ray and as part of a mammoth, Super Deluxe Edition. More recently, he performed his highly acclaimed Us + Them world tour, which was filmed and was shown in cinemas worldwide last October, with the home release of it on Blu-ray, 2CD, 3LP vinyl and DVD coming out early next month (more details and ordering links here) (https://www.brain-damage.co.uk/latest/roger-waters-us-them-2cd-3lp-dvd-and-blu-ray-announced.html). He also released his latest solo album, Is This The Life We Really Want? as well as overseeing the release of the late Nick Sedgwick’s book about the band, and in particular, the 1974 tour of The Dark Side of the Moon. Plans were in place (and tickets went on sale for) a 2020 North American tour, called This Is Not A Drill (https://www.brain-damage.co.uk/2020-tour-zone/index.php), with the stage presentation being “In The Round”. Of course, because of Covid-19 the shows have been put back until some point next year, and we are waiting on the revised dates for these. Should be another impactful presentation that will prove to be another “must see”! We hope you have a great day, Roger. Many happy returns!
