It always happens, doesn’t it. Just as we get all excited about Roger Waters doing Dark Side in Denmark than we hear the news that he’s doing it over here as well, as part of the Calling Festival in Hyde Park on Friday 30th June.
There seem to be some conflicting stories as to what’s happening with the Dark Side Of The Moon performance. Currently the Roger Waters International Fanclub talks about a special rendition of Dark Side of the Moon to be played in Berlin which
is said to be a previously unheard “extended version” of the concept album, which Waters said he was not able to realize in the early 70′s due to technical prohibitions, and will be the main part of a concert. Of course other songs by Roger Waters and Pink Floyd will also be played.
Either way with the Floyd pretty much a dead cert to remain dead after Live 8, it looks like any Rog show is going to be one of the last times you’ll get a Pink fix any more. As we mentioned previously, his Glastonbury show was an exhilerating triumph, marked out by a beaming Cap’n Grumpy and a whole host of hits.
There’s no official confirmation of the rest of the day’s line up, ticket sales or even what Rog’ll be up to as yet. But we’ll let you know as soon as we do.
And since this post is brought to you by the letter P, we should just mention that everyone’s favourite anarcho-techno- hippy-antihippy-rock-codgers, Primal Scream have announced a date at the Astoria for April 6. Tickets available from today. The show should showcase material from their forthcoming album which will not be called We Hate Absolutely Everybody.
