The Golden 1 Center is going to get a touch of pink – that is, the music from some of Pink Floyd’s classic albums. Roger Waters, the former Pink Floyd songwriter and bassist, will bring his “Us + Them” solo tour June 12 to Golden 1 Center. Along with Waters’ own solo material, the show will include some of Pink Floyd’s signature songs and more.

“It’ll be a mixture of stuff from my long career, stuff from my years with Pink Floyd, some new things,” Waters said in a statement. “Probably 75 percent of it will be old material and 25 percent will be new, but it will be all connected by a general theme. It will be a cool show, I promise you. It’ll be spectacular like all my shows have been.”

The details of the show’s visual concept have not been revealed, but knowing Waters’ fondness for large-scale concert production, such as his solo tour that brought “The Wall” to stadiums, this show has the makings for a veritable feast of sound and visuals. “Us + Them” marks Waters’ first solo tour since “The Wall Live,” which ran from 2010 to 2013.

Pre-sale tickets for Citi cardholders and VIP packages go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday through www.citiprivatepass.com. Tickets for the general public will be released Oct. 21 through aeglive.com and rogerwaters.com.
