Roger Waters has announced many more 2023 concerts of his “This is Not a Drill” tour. The Pink Floyd singer-songwriter-bass guitarist is currently performing the shows in the round for the first time, across the U.S., Canada and Mexico, in a tour delayed two full years due to the ongoing pandemic. See the complete itinerary below.

It was reported that Waters had cancelled concerts in Krakow, Poland. Not so, he wrote on Sept. 24. He says local authorities there urged people not to buy tickets. He explains the circumstances here.

In the tour’s original 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 of that year.

In his 2020 postponement announcement, the legend noted, “Bummer, but if it saves one life it’s worth it.” The tour finally opened on July 6, 2022.

The original tour announcement referred to the musician as “the creative genius of Pink Floyd.” He turned 79 on Sept. 6, 2022.

Pink Floyd fans who are still holding out hope for a reunion of the band’s three remaining members received bad news in March 2021. 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.”

The new tour is playing 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!
