Roger Waters has announced the rescheduled North American dates of his “This is Not a Drill” tour. The Pink Floyd singer-songwriter-bass guitarist will play 36 shows, in the round for the first time, across the U.S. and Canada in a tour delayed two full years due to the ongoing pandemic.

Ticketholders for the previously announced 2020 tour dates will receive an email with further information. Fans are encouraged to hold onto their original tickets as they will be valid for the new 2022 dates. For any further ticketing inquiries fans should reach out to their point of purchase.

In the announcement, Waters said: “This is Not a Drill is a ground breaking new rock and roll/cinematic extravaganza, performed in the round, 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 includes a dozen great songs from PINK FLOYD’S GOLDEN ERA along side several new ones, words and music, same writer, same heart, same soul, same man. Could be his last hurrah. Wow! My first farewell tour! Don’t miss it. Love R.”

Though Waters’ original dates weren’t scheduled to commence until July 8, 2020, he recognized the scope of the pandemic early, and announced its postponement on March 27.

In his 2020 postponement announcement, the legend noted, “Bummer, but if it saves one life it’s worth it.”

The original tour announcement referred to the musician as “the creative genius of Pink Floyd.” He turned 77 on Sept. 6, 2020.

Pink Floyd fans who are still holding out hope for a reunion of the band’s three remaining members received bad news in March. The knock-out punch was delivered by David Gilmour. In an interview with Guitar Player, the guitarist was asked if the classic rock legends would reunite.

“No. I’m done with it,” he said. “I’ve had a life in Pink Floyd for quite a lot of years, and quite a few of those years at the beginning, with Roger. And those years in what is now considered to be our heyday were 95 percent musically fulfilling and joyous and full of fun and laughter.”

Tell ’em, Roger…

The new tour will play many venues not seen on his recent Us + Them tour.

    Seeing as how Rick Wright is dead, fans wanting a reunion of classic Floyd are in for a long wait!
