Why not see Roger Waters live after booking a cheap Los Angeles hostel?
Roger Waters, one of the primary creative forces behind the highly-successful band Pink Floyd, is coming to the Staples Center in Los Angeles for three shows, on November 29th and 30th and then concluding on December 5th.

Fans of one of the biggest names in music should be sure to book up some cheap hostels in Los Angeles to make sure they can get along to a show, which is bound to be filled with entertainment.

The experience of seeing Waters live has been detailed in a review for Express Night Out, in which Christopher Porter noted: "Waters was in great voice, the special effects were flawless and the arena's acoustics were super - the stunning separation of sounds and remarkable sonic clarity even cut through foam earplugs."

Waters first came under the music spotlight in 1965 when he formed Pink Floyd, along with fellow members Syd Barrett, Nick Mason and Rick Wright, with Barrett being replaced by David Gilmour by the 1968 release of their second album, titled A Saucerful of Secrets.

The group took the music world by storm over the rest of the 1960s, and into the 1970s and early 1980s. This included a wealth of popular tracks being released, of which Time, Comfortably Numb, Money and Wish You Were Here possibly the greatest of their hits – each gaining over 100,000 plays on Last.fm in the past six months.

Pink Floyd broke up following the release of The Final Cut in 1983, though fans who manage to find a room in a cheap Los Angeles hostel for Waters' performance will probably recall that the artist has gone on to have just as successful a solo career since then, which included his first effort, The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking, going gold upon its release.
