Waters to play 'final' Moon gigs
Roger Waters
Waters left Pink Floyd in the 1980's to pursue a solo career
Roger Waters will perform Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety for the last time at two UK shows this May, it has been announced.

The co-founder of the progressive rock band will play the album in full as well as a mixture of classic Pink Floyd songs and solo material.

The final two performances will take place at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on 15 May and London's O2 on 18 May.

Tickets will go on sale on Friday morning, promoters said.

The Dark Side of the Moon was originally released in 1973 and is one of the best-selling albums of all time. It stayed in the US top 200 for 15 years.

Waters co-founded Pink Floyd with school friend Syd Barrett in 1966 and took the world of music by storm when they developed their own very original brand of rock.

He left the band to pursue a solo career and his first album, The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking, was released in April 1984.

Waters appeared alongside Pink Floyd at 2005's Live 8 concert in London.
