Watch Clip of Roger Waters Performing ‘Us and Them': Premiere
Roger Waters will screen Roger Waters Us + Them, a concert film from his 2017-18 tour of the same name, in movie theaters across the world on Oct. 2 and 6. We have an exclusive premiere of a clip from the movie below.
In it, you can see a little more than a minute of Waters and his band running through the title track, which was originally released on Pink Floyd's 1973 opus The Dark Side of the Moon.
The scene, along with the rest of the movie, was filmed during Waters' four-night stand at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam in June 2018. Directed by Waters and Sean Evans, who also helmed 2014's Roger Waters the Wall, Us + Them includes many Pink Floyd classics from their four-record spell that spanned Dark Side through The Wall, as well as tracks from Waters' 2017 album, Is This the Life We Really Want?
“I’m so looking forward to the launch of the movie in October," Waters said last month. "Us + Them is not standard rock 'n' roll fare. Some in the audience may ‘Yee haaaa!!!,’ which is okay, but many will weep. That is what I hope for."
He noted that the movie is a "call to action. Homo Sapiens stand at a crossroads: We can either pool our love, develop our capacity to empathize with others and act collectively for the good of our planet – or we can remain ‘Comfortably Numb,’ and continue, like blind lemmings, on our current omnicidal death march toward extinction. Us + Them is a vote for love and life."
Roger Waters Us + Them premieres at the Venice Film Festival, which kicks off this week, before being shown worldwide. You can find screening information at the film's website.
