The concert tour will also feature songs from the vast Pink Floyd catalog.

Ticket prices for the Times Union Center concert are priced between $52-$196.50 and are slated to go on sale to the general public at 10am on Monday (February 27).

Regarding the new album – Waters’ first new solo recording since 1992’s Amused to Death – he has said, “It’s pondering not just why we are killing the children, it’s also the question of how do we take these moments of love – if we are granted any in our lives – and allow that love to shine on the rest of existence, on others.”

Waters has also indicated in a recent interview that he’s interested in possibly staging Pink Floyd’s 1979 epic The Wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Back in 2012, Waters brought “The Wall” to the Times Union Union Center, and it was a bona fide, mutli-media, over-the-top extravanganza that has come to define arena rock extravaganzas.

The last time Waters came to town, he delivered a mind-boggling multimedia extravaganza production of “The Wall” at the Times Union Center back in 2012.
