Roger Waters Plays Career Defining Concert in Mexico City

Roger Waters played a free concert in Mexico City over the weekend to a crowd of about 200,000 people. The two-hour performance spanned the Waters’s full career covering plenty of fan favorites and deeper cuts. The performance had a very blatant political agenda too, with Roger Waters taking shots at politicians in the US and Mexico and interspersing anti-Trump slogans and images of the celebrity-turned-politician’s head on a pig (yes, he was playing “Pigs” from Animals while this happened). Waters addressed Trump’s plan to build a wall separating the US and Mexico, and held no punches as he spoke throughout his performance against Trump’s various platforms and the man himself. You can watch his performance in its entirety on our website. (CoS)
