How many times did Roger Waters come to Argentina?
The former leader and bassist of Pink Floyd appears in the country for the fifth time. The first time was in 2002 in the Vélez stadium, then, in 2007 and in 2012 accumulated 11 shows in River (with “The Wall” y “The Dark Side of the Moon”) and his last presentation was in 2018at the Único Stadium in La Plata.

And although “This is not a Drill” was announced as their farewell tour, in a exclusive interview with Eduardo Fabregat para Page|12left open the possibility of there being more. “The “last tour” thing is more of an inside joke in the industry, who knows?. I continue writing, composing, I’m working on my next album, in the hotel rooms I’m writing things, putting together songs and presenting some fragments in the show,” he said. “I haven’t stopped working, and I probably won’t stop. If I will continue doing these kinds of shows, I have no idea, only time will tell,” he added.
This new visit by Waters to the country occurs in the midst of a controversy over his stance towards the Middle East, to the point that a few days before his shows, as also happened in Uruguay, hotels such as the Faena and Alvear from Buenos Aires refused to accept host him, according to the artist himself.
In this context, the Latin American and Caribbean Confederation of State Workers (CLATE) announced in a statement that it would make “its union hotels available to the musician and his band” for their “commitment to internationalist solidarity, in defense of Human Rights.” “. Where he finally stayed is a mystery.
