This Week in History

May 22, 2007 Roger Waters, co-founder and principal songwriter of the archetypal progressive rock band Pink Floyd, performed the epic rock masterpiece, "The Dark Side Of The Moon" at Philips Arena. A fun fact about this tour is that on opening night (September 6, 2006) of the tour, Pink Floyd's iconic pig was introduced to fans, and has been at every appearance since. The set list remained constant throughout the tour - the first set was a collection of Pink Floyd material and songs from Roger's solo career, and the second The Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety, plus encores.
