31.08.18  19:00 Roger Waters (UK)
Roger Waters is Pink Floyd's grand conceptualist, the driving force behind such albums as Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and The Wall. In the wake of Syd Barrett's departure, Waters emerged as a formidable songwriter, but it's this stretch of '70s albums -- each one nearly symphonic in its reach -- that established him as a distinctive, idiosyncratic voice within rock and, following his departure from Floyd in 1985, he continued to create new works in this vein (notably, 1992's Amused to Death) and capitalized on the enduring popularity of his old band by staging live revivals of Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall in their entireties. The 2018 European Us + Them tour will visit Portugal through Russia with shows in 23 countries. The show features songs from Pink Floyd’s greatest albums (The Dark Side of The Moon, The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here) plus some new songs from his album Is This the Life We Really Want?

13.11.18  19:00 Jamiroquai (UK)
A band called Jamiroquai arrived on Earth in the 1990s, and are led by a young, jazz-infused soulman called Jay Kay, aka the Buffalo Man, aka The Cat in the Hat. He forecasts global success in the shape of over 27 million album sales, Grammy Awards, Ivor Novello gongs, MTV Moonmen, five sold-out world tours and more than 25 years of existence. The band has gone through several lineup changes during its career, but through it all, their leader has remained singer/songwriter Jason Kay (aka J.K.). The band currently consists of Jason Luis 'Jay Kay' Cheetham (vocals), Matt Johnson (keyboards), Rob Harris (guitar), Paul Turner (bass), Derrick McKenzie (drums) , Sola Akingbola (percussion), Lorraine McIntosh (backing vocals) and Hazel Fernandez (backing vocals). The name "Jamiroquai" is derived from the Native American Iroquois tribe, with which Kay has said he identifies philosophically, combined with "Jam", as in musical jamming. Read more
