Roger Waters Anyone else just camping out after Beatles legend Paul McCartney played Amalie Arena last night? Because an artist who is perhaps equally as important in rock and roll history is set to play the next day. As one of the principal songwriters and founders of Pink Floyd, Roger Waters helped change music thanks to futuristic, psychedelic albums like Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here to the political, rock opera The Wall, which Waters wrote almost entirely himself. His activism takes centerstage on Is This The Life We Really Want, a emotionally and politically charged new LP speaking out against current political figures (cough, cough Donald Trump.) The Us + Them tour doesn’t stray from this, and fans can expect the usually brazen Waters to not hold back from speaking his mind. (Amalie Arena, Tampa) INFO
