    Has anyone heard if Roger has disclosed a possible setlist for his delayed tour?

    Having compiled my own studio version of the Us + Them setlist I was thinking of doing the same for the upcoming tour, which may not even happen next year, or even the one after that. Roger, whilst currently in rude health, is rapidly approaching 78 (though does not appear to be speeding) may not wish or be in a position to tour in a few years.

    I’m sure the set list will include some anti Trump and anti Israel messages.

    Not a setlist, however in the promo videos you could hear some of the songs they were rehearsing, including The Powers That Be!!

    Reg also mentioned they would start the concert with Comfortably Numb...

    I proposed the following setlist last year:

    Set 1
    Comfortably Numb
    The Powers That Be
    The Most Beautiful Girl
    Picture That
    The Happiest Days of Our Lives
    Another Brick in the Wall Part 2
    New Song
    Perfect Sense Parts 1&2
    Run Like Hell

    Set 2
    Welcome to the Machine
    Smell the Roses
    The Bravery of Being Out of Range
    Watching TV
    Wish You Were Here
    Shine on you Crazy Diamond
    One of These Days
    Bring The Boys Back Home
    Set The Controls for the Heart of the Sun

    Us and Them
    Brain Damage/Eclipse
    The Tide is Turning

    God I wish he would give some of those a rest, actually. Take a lesson from Nick's Saucers...
    Powers That Be, great idea though.

    Didn't one of the promo videos feature a brief clip of the band rehearsing Sheep? I'm pretty confident there was some sort of tip off on that as I was definitely very excited by it's inclusion

    I would have thought that the proposed set list for This Is Not A Drill would reflect a narrative. Indeed Roger has mentioned a screenplay and actors that would portray at least part of that narrative and that it would be staged "in-the-round".

    What I found interesting about the set list for Us + Them is that it followed a new narrative whilst using existing songs.

    As to the Videos of these concerts I much prefer to listen to the music, indeed I have downmixed the 5.1 on the BluRay to create a full concert with Smell The Roses and Comfortably Numb restored, plus the DR of this is 12 rather than 7 on the CDs (which don't have the bonus tracks at all).

    Us And Them (2020 Stereo Downmix) (24bit 48kHz)
    Set 1
    Prologue (1:42)
    Speak To Me (0:33)
    Breathe (2:44)
    One Of These Days (5:28)
    Time (5:55)
    Breathe (Reprise) (1:09)
    The Great Gig In The Sky (5:00)
    Welcome To The Machine (6:56)
    Deja Vu (5:49)
    The Last Refugee (4:07)
    Picture That (7:03)
    Wish You Were Here (4:57)
    The Happiest Days of Our Lives (1:59)
    Another Brick In the Wall (Part 2) (3:19)
    Another Brick In the Wall (Part 3) (1:35)
    Set 2
    Interlude (2:05)
    Dogs (15:58)
    Pigs (Three Different Ones) (11:36)
    Money (7:24)
    Us And Them (7:44)
    Smell The Roses (5:25)
    Brain Damage (4:31)
    Eclipse (3:23)
    Comfortably Numb (7:27)
    Closing Remarks (1:10)
    The Last Refugee (Instrumental Epilogue) (1:31)
    Deja Vu (Reprise) (2:27)

    Here's a setlist I made based on what Roger has said about the show, trailers we've seen, and what I think would work best. Dashes indicate cinematic video interludes within Roger's "Three Layers" concept:

    The show is part rock & roll arena show, part cinema. It’s couched on this idea that we are divided between the ruling classes, who I characterize as living in the iCloud. They live in the sky — it’s all white up there, and they live in great luxury. And then there’s the netherworld where the rest of us shuffle around, uncomfortably numb. And then there’s a third place, the bar, which is a figment of my imagination, where people from all over the world, all communities, colors, creeds, religions can gather and speak to one another. I will be employing actors to be characters in the bar — I’m already casting, and I’ve written the whole screenplay.”

    Set 1
    Comfortably Numb (Acoustic Intro)
    Déjà vu
    Welcome To The Machine
    Happiest Days of Our Lives/Another Brick In The Wall Pt.2
    The Powers That Be
    Perfect Sense Pts. 1 and 2
    Have A Cigar
    Wish You Were Here
    The Gunner’s Dream

    Set 2
    In The Flesh
    Get Your Filthy Hands Off My Desert/Fletcher Memorial Home
    Southampton Dock
    Bravery Of Being Out Of Range
    Run Like Hell
    Every Stranger’s Eyes
    Not Now John
    Smell The Roses
    Four Minutes
    Two Suns In The Sunset
    Brain Damage/Eclipse

    The Tide Is Turning
    Comfortably Numb

    Amused to Death
    : There's got to be a space for the following lines... (perhaps Not Now John (not one of my favourites) gets dropped)

    Doctor Doctor, what is wrong with me... ...this species has amused itself to death...

    I must take the time to programme this, to have a listen, thanks.

    If/when this tour ever happens, The Powers That Be will be an absolute highlight for me. Love the song and Radio Kaos (dated as it may be), is still my favorite Waters record easily.

    Every stranger's eyes
    Not now john
    Free four
    Have a cigar
    Hey you
    Nobody home
    Fletcher memorial home
    The hero's return
    The gunners dream
    The final cut
    Perfect sense
    Bravery of being out of range
    Watching tv

    because when I was at the Us and Then concert here in Barcelona, Spain...on the stage screens was longer Trump than the musicians...(I'm not going to evaluate Trump here now...that's not the issue...nor do I care as a non-American...).I came to doubt if the singer was Roger or Trump...and the bad thing is not that it was basically a political that it was a cheap political speech....
    they bad...we good....and when the concert was over he would go in his drink champagne in his 5 star suite....considering himself another working class hero

    if I want to see a political meeting I can problem.....if I want to see a concert I go to a concert.

    I’ve only seen Roger once, but felt he played too much Floyd stuff, but yeah I get why.

    I wish he would give those big Floyd hits he plays everytime a rest. Do we really need (another) Another Brick, Money, or Comfortably Numb? Could he get away with not playing them?

    I've heard zero chatter about this tour since Roger announced he was postponing it. I'm still holding onto my ticket but I'm wondering if this tour is ever even going to happen now.

    Definitely could do a show without "Numb" — the film he put out from the last tour doesn't include it and his solo tours in '84–'87 didn't either IIRC?
  21. Cool hand luke

    Cool hand luke Play it cool, and Saran Wrap all you can

    Yes you are very much right about Numb. I saw a few KAOS shows and a Pros and Cons Numb. I guess I was thinking since then, In The Flesh on.

    I get why Roger likes performing that song but if he didn't feel it tied into the narrative he was trying to put across, he'd probably drop it from the show

    So he’s no longer Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters on the posters?
