Roger Waters‘ 2019 concert film, Roger Waters: Us + Them, which features performances shot in Amsterdam and the U.K. during the ex-Pink Floyd singer/bassist’s 2017-2018 Us + Them Tour, will be released in various digital formats and via on-demand services on June 16.

A new trailer for the flick has debuted on Waters’ official YouTube channel. It offers glimpses of the dynamic, politically charged concert, which featured videos displayed on a massive high-def screen, including scenes of Roger interacting with the enthusiastic crowd. The promo also features audio of renditions of the Pink Floyd songs “Eclipse” and “Us and Them,” and we hear Waters declaring in a voiceover, “All of the love in this room needs to spread over this fragile planet.”

In addition, Roger Waters: Us + Them features Waters performing a set that mixed classic Pink Floyd songs from the 1970s and selections from his 2017 solo album, Is This the Life We Really Want? The digital release of Roger Waters: Us + Them will give viewers access to bonus content, including performances of two songs not included in the original film — “Comfortably Numb” and “Smell the Roses” — as well as a short documentary featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the trek.

Water’s Us + Them world tour featured Roger delivering a powerful message focusing on human rights, liberty and love. It featured a total of 156 concerts, with more than 2.3 million people attending the shows.

Roger Waters: Us + Them will be available in 4K, HD and SD digital formats. According to Rolling Stone, details of a DVD and Blu-ray release will be announced soon.
