Since beginning the “Us + Them” tour a year ago, Roger Waters, the bassist, singer, songwriter and one of the founding members of Pink Floyd has performed to packed and sold out venues across the world. The concert at the Zagreb Arena on Sunday 06.05.18 was no different, with the atmosphere building up from late afternoon. The coffee shops, bars and car parks were full of people donning the full range of Pink Floyd Tee shirts and the sounds of Floyd filled the air.
The show featured songs from some of Pink Floyd’s greatest albums including "The Dark Side of The Moon", "The Wall", "Animals", "Meddle" and "Wish You Were Here" as well as songs from his solo career plus new tracks from his album “Is This the Life We Really Want”?
During the second part of the show, the crowd were amazed when several screens descended from the roof and filled the main standing area of the arena. The screens showed satirical and political messages, a live stream of the show and iconic Pink Floyd images such as “The Battersea Power Station” which was used on their 1977 album “Animals”. When “Eclipse”, from “Dark Side of the Moon” was played, a prism appeared above the crowd complete with lasers, lights and smoke. It was incredible to see!
