In The Flesh was a series of worldwide concert tours by Roger Waters that spanned three individual tours over the course of three years (1999, 2000, and 2002). Returning from a 12-year-long hiatus from the road, In The Flesh was a showcase of his best known work from his days with Pink Floyd to his most recently released solo album, 1992's Amused to Death. The title is an allusion to the 1977 Pink Floyd tour for the Animals album, as well as the two songs so titled on the album The Wall.

The 27 June 2000 performance at the Rose Garden Arena in Portland, Oregon was later released as the CD and DVD In the Flesh – Live.

1999[edit]

The summers of 1999, 2000, and 2002 found Roger Waters playing his best works at the In the Flesh tour. The show consisted of his most famous tracks from the beginning of his Pink Floyd career. The demand for concert tickets were so great that the tour spanned over three years of touring. Along with the popular acclaim, the show received critical praise from various artists and magazines.

2000[edit]

Following the startling success of the 1999 tour, Waters mounted an even more extensive tour, touching areas of the country ignored on previous tours. The set list was also altered with "The Powers That Be" and "What God Wants" being removed in favour of "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun", "Bravery of Being Out of Range" and new song titled "Each Small Candle". The backing band was relatively the same as the previous tour, with an addition of a backup singer and a new saxophone player for the songs "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun" and "Money".

Notes

  • The Rose Garden show in Portland was both filmed and recorded and subsequently released as a DVD and double CD titled In the Flesh – Live.

2002[edit]

The success of Waters' two American tours encouraged him to make his 2002 tour a world tour. The set list for 2002 was similar to the previous tour with the addition of another new song, "Flickering Flame",[1] which was substituted periodically for "Each Small Candle" as the encore. The band also changed with the departure of Doyle Bramhall II, his wife and back up singer Sussanah Melvoin and Jon Carin. Brought in was Chester Kamen (brother of Michael Kamen, replacing Bramhall), Linda Lewis as back up singer (who later was replaced by Carol Kenyon due to personal issues), and most interestingly Harry Waters (son of frontman Roger Waters) to replace Carin. By far the most historical moment of this or any of Waters in the Flesh tours came at London's Wembley Arena as former Pink Floyd bandmate and drummer Nick Mason sat in and played both nights on "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun".

Tour band
  • Roger Waters: guitar, bass guitar, vocals
  • Andy Fairweather Low: guitar, bass guitar, vocals
  • Snowy White: guitar
