Music, what else

music baby….

Pink Floyd’s Waters has high hopes

Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters is hoping that a new year will bring new opportunities for his opera, Ca Ira. The singer/songwriter/bassist has staged the French Revolution saga just once so far, in November in Rome, but he hopes to put it on in other venues this year, including North America. Waters told us there’s a certain amount of salesmanship involved in finding support for the endeavor: “It’s just a question of persuading various, you know, towns to take it on as a project. It’s inevitably subsidized in some ways, and to persuade them that they should do is this rather than an evening of Brahms or Beethoven or something is a bit of a stretch.”

Waters spent more than a decade working on Ca Ira.

His Pink Floyd bandmate, David Gilmour, will release a solo album titled On An Island on March 7th. He begins a world tour on March 10th in Germany, with a 10-date North American swing kicking off on April 4th in New York City.

Both members have denied interest in a full-fledged Pink Floyd reunion, even after their masterful performance at the London leg of Live 8 concert in July.
