Roger Waters, co-founder and principal songwriter of the archetypal progressive rock band Pink Floyd, will return to the Unites States and Canada this spring to perform the epic rock masterpiece "The Dark Side Of The Moon" in its entirety during a series of return concert engagements beginning May 18 in West Palm Beach, Florida and ending July 14 in Toronto.

"The Dark Side Of The Moon" - The Return Engagement combines a full evening's worth of music--comprised of two sets plus encores-- performed by Roger Waters and full band with state-of-the-art staging, lighting and sound

Set One provides 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 presents Roger Waters and band performing "The Dark Side Of The Moon," one of the defining works of rock music history, from start-to-finish. Waters performed "The Dark Side Of The Moon" for the first time as a solo artist during his 2006 world tour which included a run of North American concerts last fall. Prior to Waters' 2006 tour, his last live performances of the work took place 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 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 360 degrees quadraphonic sound system immersing the audience in a 3-dimensional hyperworld.

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."

Roger Waters co-founded the groundbreaking Pink Floyd with Syd Barrett in 1966 and became the group's sonic architect upon Barrett's departure, creating such undeniable classics as "The Dark Side Of The Moon" (which spent nearly 15 years on the Billboard 200 album chart), "The Wall" (which has been certified 23x RIAA platinum), "Animals," "Wish You Were Here," and "Final Cut."

His first full-length solo album, "The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking," was released in April 1984, to great critical and popular success, generating his first solo tour. June 1987's "Radio K.A.O.S." continued the path of solo success, bringing Roger back to the concert stage. Released in August 1992, Waters' last full-length solo album, "Amused To Death," is a witty and prescient musical critique of the powers and dangers of mass media, considered by many to be a comparable aesthetic and cultural achievement to "The Dark Side Of The Moon" or "The Wall."
