Winter is coming, right? Believe me, with all the raking of leaves and getting the house winter-ready, I’m well aware of the dropping temperatures.
One thing that is helping me fend off the autumn blues as I prepare for the long stretches of sub-zero temperatures and snowfall is that Roger Waters is coming.
Yes, the man who worked with Pink Floyd to give us classics like “The Dark Side of the Moon,” “Wish You Were Here” and “The Wall,” as well as solo gems like “The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking” and “Amused to Death,” will be touring the United States in 2017.
And this isn’t some limited-run show of a dozen dates or anything. There already are a few dozen dates scheduled.
Of particular note to my fellow Minnesotans is July 26. That’s when Waters will be performing at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.
