Quite a week to be a classic rock fan, huh?

First the Rolling Stones announce a new album, Blue & Lonesome. Then Bob Dylan wins the Nobel Price in Literature.

Now Pink Floyd's Roger Waters has announced a sprawling world tour that will bring him to Tampa's Amalie Arena on July 11.

Waters' "Us + Them" tour will feature a mix of Pink Floyd classics, new songs and solo songs. It's his first trip to Tampa since bringing his tour of Pink Floyd's The Wall to town in 2010.

"Probably 75 percent of it will be old material and 25 percent will be new, but it will all be collected by a general theme," Waters said in a statement. "It will be a cool show, I promise you. It'll be spectacular lik eall my shows have been."

Waters, Dylan and the Stones are all out in California this week for the second weekend of the boomer-centric Desert Trip festival. Makes you wonder what Paul McCartney, Neil Young and the Who have up their sleeves.

Tickets start at $51.25 and go on sale Oct. 21. Click here for details.
