“It’ll be a new show. 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,” said Roger Waters last year. It’s one of many reasons we’re thrilled about his just-announced 2020 This Is Not A Drill tour. The legendary Pink Floyd founder is bringing his powerful sound and audio-visual experience to lucky fans all over North America on 31 dates this year. Tickets go on sale on January 31 at 10 a.m. local time so be sure to set a reminder and grab your tickets here.
“As the clock ticks faster and faster and faster down to extinction, it seemed like a good thing to make a fuss about it, so that’s why I’m going on the road,” Waters said in another recent RS interview. “To be blunt, we need to change the way we organize ourselves as a human race or die. This tour will be part of a global movement by people who are concerned by others to effect the change that is necessary. That’s why we’re going on the road. That’s why speak to each other in pubs. That’s why this conversation should be on everybody’s lips, constantly, the whole time, because it’s super important. So I hope you’ll all come to the shows. This is not a drill.”
We can’t wait to see him again, because, as anyone familiar with his work (or present during his 2017-18 Us + Them tour) would expect, he puts on one of the best live shows a human can witness. If you’re in the area, you can catch Waters at Boston’s TD Garden on July 28th and New York’s Madison Square Garden on August 5th.
