Roger Waters embarked on two massive tours in the past 10 years. The first one celebrated Pink Floyd’s iconic The Wall album by performing it in its entirety around the world between 2010 and 2013.

Waters’ most recent tour, Us + Them (2017-2018) focused primarily on his musical history with Pink Floyd, but also included new music from his most recent album. He hit the road just before the release of Is This the Life We Really Want?, his fourth solo album that arrived in June 2017. The tour began May 26 and played cities in North America, Oceania and Europe before capping with a final trek through Latin American countries in the fall of 2018. With 150 performances reported to Pollstar, the run moved 2.2 million tickets.

Mark Fenwick, at MFM Ltd., said: “For Roger Waters, founder member of Pink Floyd to make the Top 10 list as a solo artist is a remarkable achievement and is testament to his incredible body of work.” Without wanting to name any individuals in particular, he added, “all members of Roger Waters team are integral to the success of his touring.”
