The co-founder of the British rock band Pink Floyd will give a free concert October 1 in Mexico City’s zócalo.
Roger Waters, who is already scheduled to give concerts in the city on September 28 and 29 at Foro Sol, announced the free event on his Twitter account today.
The concert is being sponsored by the Mexico City government and AT&T, among others.
During his visit to Mexico the 73-year-old British musician will also present a documentary entitled The Occupation of the American Mind: Israel’s Public Relations War in the United States.
Narrated by Waters, the film examines American media coverage of the conflict between Israel and Palestine. The screening will take place September 30 at the Cineteca Nacional.
Waters was one of the founders of Pink Floyd in 1965, a band that earned international success with the albums The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall. As of 2013 the band had sold more than 250 million albums.
