Earlier this month, Roger Waters made his return to the stage at Newport Folk Fest. Now, it appears he’s planning further live performances in the near future.
In an extensive new interview with Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Waters revealed that he’s planning to embark on a world tour in 2016.
Following his mammoth, multi-year Wall tour, Waters expressed hesitation over the idea of taking part in another outing of a similar scale. However, as he continues work on his first solo album in 22 years, it appears the former Pink Floyd bassist has had a change of heart.
