first_imgRogers returns to Foro Sol in Mexico City tonight, then will hold a free concert at Plaza de la Constitución on Saturday, before making his way up to the highly anticipated performance at Desert Trip.[H/T CoS] Desert Trip, more casually known as “Oldchella”, is making its debut next weekend in Indio, California, with Roger Waters as one of the many legendary headliners to the event. The Pink Floyd co-founder is warming up for the experience with three performances in Mexico City, after 11 months off of the road.Waters has recently performed music from The Wall, but has clearly put focus toward diversifying this playlist for his 2016 performances. Last night’s return to the stage saw a 26-song showcase of Pink Floyd’s career-spanning catalogue, touching upon hits from The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and Animals. Fans at Foro Sol were also treated to a very special performance of “Fearless” off 1971’s Meddle; the track hadn’t been played live by any member of Pink Floyd since its debut in 1971. Behind the stage ran projections of protest images and signs that read “Black Lives Matter” and “White Justice is Violence” – interestingly.Furthermore, Waters one-upped the specialty by performing another song from Meddle, “One of These Days”, for the first time as a solo artist. Thanks to YouTube users Metal Tower and Beattales.com, you can enjoy these videos below:last_img
