Roger Waters Moves ‘This is Not a Drill’ 2020 Tour to 2021

Share This:

Roger Waters announced today (March 27) that he has postponed his 2020 tour to 2021. It’s particularly noteworthy because the tour, called “This is Not a Drill,” wasn’t scheduled to commence until July 8. The new 2021 dates have not yet been determined.

In his announcement, Waters noted, “Bummer, but if it saves one life it’s worth it.” Ticketholders are advised to hold onto their original tickets and await further information.

When it does begin, the all-new tour will present the Pink Floyd singer-songwriter-bass guitarist in the round, for the first time.

The original Jan. 23 tour announcement refers to the musician as “the creative genius of Pink Floyd.” He turned 76 on Sept. 6, 2019.

On Feb. 24, second shows were added in Philadelphia, Toronto, and San Francisco. Second shows had previously been added in New York, Los Angeles and Mexico City.

“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 Waters of the upcoming tour in a September 2019 interview with Rolling Stone.

The “This is Not a Drill” 2020 tour was scheduled to play 32 cities across the U.S., Canada and Mexico, starting on July 8, playing many venues not seen on his recent Us + Them tour.
