Roger Waters is heading out on the road later this year with his 31-city North American tour This Is Not a Drill.
The former Pink Floyd member told Rolling Stone that the timing of the tour was purposefully lined up with the 2020 presidential election, with the last show taking place a month before Election Day in the U.S. “This tour will be part of a global movement by people who are concerned by others to affect the change that is necessary. That’s why we’re going on the road...So I hope you’ll all come to the shows. This is not a drill.”
The tour will begin in Pittsburgh, PA on July 8 and conclude on Oct. 3 in Dallas, TX. Regarding the tour, Waters noted, “It will be no-holds-barred.” “My work is to think, ‘Well, how can I make rock & roll more interesting or theatrical or exciting or visual or musical or whatever?’ That’s what I’ve spent the last 50 years doing, expressing myself.”
Tickets go on sale Jan. 31 at 10am local time. See Waters' website for more ticket information.
