Roger Waters brought over 2 hours of Pink Floyd classics and some new material to the Meadowlands Arena in East Rutherford, NJ last night (May 21). It was a rehearsal show for the upcoming Us & Them tour.

The arena had an estimated 1500-2000 on hand (radio and industry people), who were invited to the once in a lifetime performance. We took the Rock n Roll Limo Van down to Jersey for this special event, and upon arrival we first met up with Q103 listener and contest winner Randy LaPlante who seemed to be having a great time. We then went to find a good spot to watch the show. The setlist included many great classics from Pink Floyd albums like The Darkside of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and The Wall plus some material from Roger Waters upcoming solo cd, Is This the Life We Really Want? due out June 2. And of course as one would expect, Waters did get political. You can check out the setlist, along with photos and video below.
