Roger Waters may seem like an unlikely headliner choice for the iconic Newport Folk Festival, but the Pink Floyd bassist certainly did it right.
Performing a set of Pink Floyd songs, covers and originals, the songwriter was backed by My Morning Jacket for the entirety of the performance, as well as the singers of Lucius.
Throughout the set, Waters was also joined by Amy Helm (the daughter of the late Levon Helm), Nickel Creek fiddler Sara Watkins and session guitarist G.E. Smith.
Watch fan-shot videos of “Wish You Were Here” and “Brain Damage / Eclipse” below, as well a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young,” a tribute to the songwriter’s notorious set 50 years prior.
