Courtesy of Roger WatersFounding Pink Floyd singer/bassist Roger Waters finally has announced rescheduled dates for his This Is Not a Drill tour of North America, which originally was supposed to kick off in July 2020 before being postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 36-date trek, which now will take place in 2022, is set to kick off on July 6 in Pittsburgh will run through an October 8 show in Dallas. The outing includes two-night stands in Toronto, Philadelphia, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

As previously reported, the This Is Not a Drill concerts will be staged “in the round,” a first for Waters.  In a new statement, he describes the tour as “a ground breaking new rock and roll/cinematic extravaganza.”

He continues,”[I]t 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.”

The 77-year-old Rock & Roll Hall of Famer finishes his message by noting, “Could be his last hurrah. Wow! My first farewell tour! Don’t miss it.”

Waters also has posted a video trailer for the rescheduled tour on his YouTube channel in which he explains the themes behind the trek.
