Roger Waters sets 2022 This is not practice data

Roger Waters embarks on what he brutally teases as his “first farewell tour,” officially called This Is Not a Drill, next summer. He was supposed to start the tour last year, but pandemic lockdowns have sidelined his plans. The new string of dates kicks off July 6, 2022 in Pittsburgh.

Tickets are on sale now through Those holding tickets for the 2020 dates will receive an email with more information about the new dates. Those tickets are valid for the new dates.

“This Is Not A Drill is a groundbreaking new rock & roll / cinematic extravaganza performed in the round,” Waters wrote in a statement. “It is a stunning indictment of the corporate dystopia in which we all struggle to survive, and a call to action to love, protect and share our precious and precarious planet home. The show features a dozen great songs from Pink Floyd’s Golden Era alongside several new – words and music, the same writer, the same heart, the same soul, the same man. It could be his last hurray. Wow! My first farewell trip! Do not miss it. Love, R. “

When Waters announced the tour last year, he promised an entirely new production, following his Us + Them and the Wall tours, which would be featured in the round.

When he was originally planning it, he had timed it through to the 2020 election.[The new tour] will be even more political than Us + Them was – political and humane, ”said Waters Rolling stone in 2019. “Today we listened to songs and watched setlists. We were talking about, what should we call it? I shouldn’t be giving this away but I don’t care because it will probably all change, but just imagine the iconic helicopter that normally comes for ‘Happiest Days’ and ‘Brick 2’ – that sound we all know and love – and imagine a megaphone, someone has abused this device before, I know – but, “This is not a drill.” I thought that might be a good title for the show: This Is Not a Drill. The ruling class is killing us. “
