Roger Waters plays Lisbon

English musician and founding member of the rock band Pink Floyd will be playing at Pavilhão Atlântico in Lisbon on March 21 and 22.

Roger Waters is a singer-songwriter and composer who was bassist and co-lead vocalist of the band.

Following the departure of bandmate Syd Barrett in 1968, Waters became the band’s lyricist, principal songwriter and conceptual leader.

The band subsequently achieved worldwide success in the 1970s with the concept albums The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall.

Amid creative differences within the group, Waters left Pink Floyd in 1985 and started a solo career which includes three studio albums: The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking (1984), Radio K.A.O.S. (1987) and Amused to Death (1992).

In 1990, he staged one of the largest rock concerts in history, The Wall – Live in Berlin, with an estimated 200,000 people in attendance.

In 1996, he was inducted into the US and UK Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Pink Floyd.

In July 2005, he reunited with Pink Floyd band mates Nick Mason, Richard Wright, and David Gilmour for the Live 8 benefit concert, the group’s only appearance with Waters since their last performance with him 24 years earlier.
