The appearance will be part of his 'Us + Them' tour.
It's barely been three months since the last BST Hyde Park event took place, but the headliner for next year's festival has already been announced as tickets prepare to go on sale this week. Roger Waters will be on the top of the bill as part of his Us + Them Tour.

Roger Waters has slammed Thom Yorke for ''whining'' about Radiohead's controversial Israel concert.
The 48-year-old singer and his band are due to perform in Tel Aviv on Wednesday (19.07.17), and after the planned concert attracted criticism due to Israel's oppression of Palestinians, former Pink Floyd rocker Roger has hit out at the star for complaining about ''feeling insulted''.
Roger - who was one of many musicians to sign an open letter urging the 'Creep' hitmakers to cancel the show - said during an hour-long Facebook Live chat: ''We should observe the picket line. Anybody who's tempted to do that, like our friends in Radiohead, if only they would actually educate themselves.

Ahead of his 'Us + Them' tour, Roger Waters does a practise run in New Jersey.
Roger Waters made quite the impression with the dress rehearsal for his 'Us + Them' tour this week in New Jersey, celebrating the release of his brand new album ahead of the official tour kick-off in Missouri this weekend. Joining him in his band were backing singers Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of the band Lucius.

The 'Us + Them' tour has been set up in support of his new album 'Is This The Life We Really Want?'.

Waters and Mason, two-thirds of Pink Floyd, said they would be open to playing Glastonbury if they were ever invited.
Two of the remaining three members of prog-rock legends Pink Floyd have raised the tantalising prospect that the group might finally perform at Glastonbury Festival.
At a press conference for the V&A Museum’s upcoming Pink Floyd retrospective exhibition on Thursday (February 16th), the band’s bass player Roger Waters and drummer Nick Mason made a rare joint appearance in public. During the questions, they suggested that they might be up for playing at the iconic festival for the first time.
Presumably, this made Glasto organiser Michael Eavis’s ears prick up with excitement, having previously said that his wishlist for the festival included Pink Floyd and Fleetwood Mac.
In 1979, Pink Floyd released their legendary number one album 'The Wall' and followed with an extraordinary mini tour. The show, curated by Roger Walters, was appropriately resurrected in 1990 - following the monumental fall of the Berlin Wall - as an expression of freedom and unity, and now comes to the big screen for the first time ever for the 25th anniversary. Waters' show in Germany is still the biggest selling solo performance ever recorded, and even now the message behind the set-up is still appropriate to modern day society. Now fans can delve deeper in the world of 'The Wall' with an insight from Waters himself on his inspirations for the songs, plus an in-conversation piece between Waters and Nick Mason entitled The Simple Facts.

The re-mastered album is set to be re-released this summer.
Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters is set to re-release his last solo album, 1992's 'Amused To Death', as a re-mastered and re-mixed edition this summer, and as he gears up to unleash it once again upon the world, he takes us through his thinking process for each song.
Roger Waters opens up about 'Amused To Death' themes
Exploring themes like war, religion, politics and humanity in ever more whimsical and sardonic ways, Roger Waters really didn't hold back with 'Amused To Death'. An intelligent, conceptual collection mostly based on material from Neil Postman's book 'Amusing Ourselves to Death', he steered away from the pop conformity of love, sex and partying to deliver some more important messages - most of which are very much still relevant two decades on.
Real music fans, prepare to rejoice as Pink Floyd become bigger than One Direction. Sort of.
It's frustrating for any musical connoisseur that carefully manipulated pop reigns highest on most music charts, but it looks like psychedelic legends Pink Floyd could beat One Direction on Amazon's most pre-ordered albums list with their final release 'The Endless River'.
The band, whose last album ten years ago entitled 'The Division Bell' became a worldwide number one, managed to easily overtake Coldplay's 'Ghost Stories' as most pre-ordered album of 2014 and now their new record may be held up as the most pre-ordered of all time - a title currently held by One Direction's 'Midnight Memories'.

The legendary band’s first new album in 20 years is released on November 10th.
It’s not the first time the band have used the physicist's synthesised voice. Hawking can be heard narrating, ‘Keep Talkin’’ a track from The Division Bell which sampled a British Telecom advert featuring the professor. ‘Talkin' Hawkin’ is not thought to be a sequel to the 1994 track.

Roger Waters is open about the fact that his new movie is less of a concert documentary, and more of an anti-war film.
Pink Floyd's Roger Waters says his new movie Roger Waters: The Wall should be viewed as a protest against the growing spread of armed conflict, rather than a concert documentary. The movie - which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday (September 6, 2014) - documents Waters' three yearlong The Wall Live tour.

However, it also includes sections of Waters visiting war cemeteries, including the grave of his father, who died in World War I. The concert itself features projections of veterans and people who died in wars.

Pink Floyd fans have been promised a new album.
Fans of the psychedelic rock band Pink Floyd are in for a promising fall. Apparently the iconic rockers have a new album on the way title The Endless River. Most interesting though, is how the news was announced.

David Gilmour's wife Polly Samson leaked the news via Twitter. She stated: "Btw Pink Floyd album out in October is called "The Endless River". Based on 1994 sessions is Rick Wright's swansong and very beautiful." Presumably, by "based" she meant that recordings from the late keyboardist Rick Wright (who died of cancer in 2008 at age 65) were beefed up with overdubs by Gilmour and Nick Mason. Samson co-wrote many of the lyrics featured on the band's 1994 album The Division Bell, so it's very possible she contributed to the soon-to-be released album.
