The private flight was originally to arrive at 2:00 pm. But the delay did not matter.

“A friend who has contacts was the one who told us of the time that Roger Waters would arrive,” said Marco Monge, a fan of the British artist.

“It’s an honor that he is in the country. I managed to take a picture and my legs were shaking,” said three of the fans, who expressed their excitement after having seen their idol in person.

To welcome the 75-year-old British artist, the fans organized themselves days before. Some took the day off work. Stephanie Lopez says that she left running from work, Natalia Chavarría was waiting since 10 am when she finished classes, and Hellen waited at the airport, she finished work at 2 pm.

“The mae (man) came out and we could not do anything, I do not know how I managed to hold the poster I was carrying. Let’s say in history that we are the first fans of Pink Floyd who saw him arrive in Costa Rica,” said Martin Fallas, a vehement follower of Pink Floyd and Roger Waters.

The fans expected more. An autograph? A selfie?. Nothing. Mostly because, as Helen describes, they were in shock in seeing their idol, “we couldn’t even shout out a welcome”.

Helen and her group of friends camped out at the Escazu hotel waiting. But by 8:30 pm they gave up and went home. They plan to the at hotel again this Friday.

Pink Floyd achieved international success with the concept albums The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and The Wall. By the early 1980s, they had become one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful groups in popular music; by 2013, they had sold more than 250 million albums worldwide. Amid creative differences, Waters left in 1985 and began a legal dispute with the remaining members over their use of the band’s name and material. They settled out of court in 1987.

Waters’ solo work includes the studio albums The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking (1984), Radio K.A.O.S. (1987), Amused to Death (1992), and Is This the Life We Really Want? (2017). In 2005, he released Ça Ira, an opera translated from Étienne and Nadine Roda-Gils’ libretto about the French Revolution.

In 1990, Waters staged one of the largest rock concerts in history, The Wall – Live in Berlin, with an attendance of 450,000. As a member of Pink Floyd, he was inducted into the U.S. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996 and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005.

He has toured extensively as a solo act since 1999; he performed The Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety for his world tour of 2006–2008, and in 2010 began the Wall Live tour, the highest-grossing of all time by a solo artist.
