Roger Waters Says: “Trump Should Get Five Years In Prison”. Do You Support This?
They’re just a few of the images music fans can catch on Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters’ 54-date North American tour, “Us + Them,” which kicked off on May 26 and coincides with the release of Water’s first studio album in 25 years, “Is This the Life We Really Want?”
The political nature of his show, Waters told CNN, is a calculated and defiant response to what he calls the “charade” of the American presidency.
n an interview with Michael Smerconish, the 73-year-old Waters said he has no regrets about turning parts of his 2 1/2-hour performance into what the CNN host described as just “as much an anti-Trump rally as a rock concert.”
“It would be a lot easier to be on tour if I wasn’t doing any of this, if I didn’t have opinions,” said Waters, a longtime Trump critic.
But, he said, 20 gigs in, people — even in red states — are “getting it.”
“We started in Kansas City and then we went Louisville, Tulsa, St. Louis,” Water said. “And that was like a — that was a kind of, whoa, I wonder how this is going to be.”
