After wowing fans with a career-spanning setlist at Desert Trip last weekend, Pink Floyd’s own Roger Waters has confirmed a 42-date summer 2017 tour. Dubbed the “Us & Them” tour, the dates cover the majority of North America, and will run off and on between May 26th and October 21st.The tour is named after the iconic song on 1973 Pink Floyd album Dark Side Of The Moon, on which Waters recently reflected in an interview with NPR. Waters says, “I was listening to [the song] the other day. There’s a line which goes, ‘With, without, and who’ll deny that’s what the fighting’s all about?’ And the answer to the question is this: Almost everyone. Almost everyone will deny that ‘with/without’ is what the fighting’s all about. My contention is that it is. That’s why my new tour is going to be called ‘Us and Them.’ It’s specifically about that line.”Waters promises a mixture of Pink Floyd songs, solo material, and NPR also says there will be “a number of newly written tracks for an upcoming album”!

Servais said Suzuki will be around the team during home games and will likely spend some time with the team’s Triple-A franchise in Tacoma, Washington, working with players at that level.Servais said his goal is to give Suzuki insight into the behind-the-scenes workings of the coaching staff.“I want to give him as much exposure as I possibly can and what goes on kind of behind the scenes in preparation for a series, dealing with players just the conversations that go on,” Servais said.“It’s not always just about how they’re hitting, but it’s the whole package. How do we reach this guy or how do we get more out of him in the weight room or training room or whatever. He will be around. He wants to kind of ease into it. As far as meetings and stuff though I want to give him a lot of exposure.”ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Philippine Arena Interchange inaugurated SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte Panelo: Duterte ‘angry’ with SEA Games hosting hassles Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Hontiveros presses for security audit of national power grid View comments Suzuki is officially working for team chairman John Stanton, but will report to general manager Jerry Dipoto in his new role.Unlike last year when Suzuki was staying in playing shape so that he could begin this season on the major league roster, he won’t be taking part in pregame workouts aside from maybe throwing batting practice.“I think you’ll see him in the batting cage a lot because that’s his comfort zone,” Servais said. “I look forward to having him around. He’s an insightful person and certainly knows our team, but it’s different when you’re sitting in here and we’re talking about players and how to get them better.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Barcelona manages Lionel Messi’s time ahead of Champions League Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
