Roger Waters Announces New 2022 Dates for Postponed Tour
Roger Waters announced new 2022 dates for his This Is Not a Drill tour, originally postponed from 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 36-date North American trek now launches July 6, 2022, in Pittsburgh and wraps Oct. 8 in Dallas. Tickets originally purchased for the 2020 shows will be valid for the new dates; fans will receive an email with additional information.
The shows will be performed "in the round," utilizing both music and film to create what a Waters describes in a statement as 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."
Waters will play songs from what he calls Pink Floyd's "golden era," along with "several" new tracks. "Words and music, same writer, same heart, same soul, same man," he added. "Could be his last hurrah. Wow! My first farewell tour! Don't miss it. Love R."
You can see the dates below.
The songwriter teased the production in a new preview clip. "This Is Not a Drill will be a rock 'n' roll show that's about the fact that, if this is our lives ending, we're standing on the precipice," he says. "And it needs just the slightest little nudge, and we'll all be yesterday's news."
In October, Waters released his Us + Them concert movie in various physical editions, including Blu-ray, DVD, double CD and triple vinyl.
