Us + Them is a live concert film and soundtrack album by British progressive rock musician Roger Waters, released in October 2020 via Columbia Records.

Us + Them chronicles the acclaimed 2017-2018 world tour of the former Pink Floyd member Roger Waters. As a founding member, lyricist, composer and creative force behind Pink Floyd, Us + Them presents Waters powerful music in stunning form and highlights its messages of human rights, liberty and love.

Based around his acclaimed, sold-out Us + Them worldwide tour of 2017-18, comprising a total of 156 shows to 2.3 million people across the globe, it features classic songs from The Dark Side Of The Moon, The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here as well as his most recent studio album, Is This The Life We Really Want?

Waters powerfully demonstrates that he is at heart, a musical activist and one of the most passionate political commentators of his time. He has dedicated his life to fighting against those who seek to control our lives and destroy our planet. “Welcome To The Machine” and “Another Brick In The Wall Part II”, are a stark reminder of the bleak warnings that he gave decades ago about alienation, displacement, greed, suffering, destruction and loss. The film brings the songs from the 1977 Floyd studio album AnimalsDogs” and “Pigs (Three Different Ones)” into current focus with his cynical view of the current populist political flavour of politicians like Trump, and his taunting of the North Korean regime.

And yet the humanity of the songwriter cannot be more plainly seen than in “Wish You Were Here”, because, although he presents a grim picture of the state of the world, ultimately his message is one of hope through unity and love.

The film was directed by Waters and Sean Evans, and it captures a truncated performance from Waters' 2017–18 live tour, compiled from the four shows at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam on 18, 19, 22 and 23 June 2018.

His crack live band featured:

  • Jonathan Wilson on lead and acoustic guitars, who also sang the Gilmour vocal parts on the Pink Floyd material
  • Dave Kilminster on acoustic and lead guitars and backing vocals
  • Jon Carin on piano, keyboards, lap steel, backing vocals and lead vocals on “Us & Them”
  • Gus Seyffert on guitars, bass and backing vocals
  • Bo Koster on keyboards
  • Ian Ritchie on saxophone and bass
  • Joey Waronker on drums and percussion
  • Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig (from the band Lucius) on backing vocals and lead vocals on “The Great Gig In The Sky”

Sadly there were no songs featured in the show from Waters first three solo albums; only his most recent rock studio album Is This The Life We Really Want?

The film was first screened on 7 September 2019 at the Venice Film Festival, and was released in theatres across the world on 2 and 6 October in 2019. In May 2020 it was announced the film would have a digital release in June 2020 followed by a physical release on Blu-Ray and DVD in October 2020.

This is a Blu-Ray release of the 2 hour concert film with three bonus tracks housed in a cardboard gatefold sleeve with printed booklet, pressed in the US via Columbia Records.
