Roger Waters, Alongside Neil Young & My Morning Jacket, Cover Bob Dylan’s ‘Forever Young’

As per usual, the stars rolled out for Neil Young‘s annual Bridge School Benefit concert, now in its 30th year. Acts like Metallica (who covered the Clash), Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews, Norah Jones, and others joined Young for the monster charity event.

 

Also on the lineup was Roger Waters, who performed Bob Dylan‘s “Forever Young” with an assist from Neil and My Morning Jacket working as his backing band.

 

The rest of Waters’ set included Pink Floyd classics — “Wish You Were Here”; “Mother”; “Vera”; “Bring the Boys Back Home” — his solo track “The Bravery of Being Out of Range,” and a cover of John Prine’s “Hello in There.”

Waters is set to embark on a lengthy performance schedule throughout much of 2017, titled the Us + Them Tour, which he has hinted as a career-spanning tour.

“It’ll be a mixture of stuff from my long career, stuff from my years with Pink Floyd, some new things. Probably 75 percent of it will be old material and 25 percent will be new, but it will be all connected by a general theme. It’ll be spectacular like all my shows have been,” says Waters.
