Roger Waters to launch 'This is Not a Drill' tour in July

Jan. 23 (UPI) -- Singer and musician Roger Waters is going on tour in 2020.

The 76-year-old recording artist shared plans Thursday on Twitter for his This is Not a Drill tour of North America.


The tour begins July 8 in Pittsburgh, Pa., and ends Oct. 3 in Dallas, Texas. Tickets go on sale Jan. 31 at 10 a.m. local time.

313 Presents described the tour as "challenging" and "thought-provoking" in a press release Thursday. The company said the tour continues Waters' "message of love."

Waters said the tour is meant to inspire people to affect change, according to Rolling Stone.

"As the clock ticks faster and faster and faster down to extinction, it seemed like a good thing to make a fuss about it, so that's why I'm going on the road," the singer said.


"To be blunt, we need to change the way we organize ourselves as a human race or die. This tour will be part of a global movement by people who are concerned by others to affect the change that is necessary," he added.

Waters previously told Rolling Stone the new tour will be "even more political" than his Us + Them tour, which ran from May 2017 into December 2018.

Waters came to fame as the bassist and co-lead vocalist of the band Pink Floyd. He released his fifth solo album, Igor Stravinsky's The Soldier's Tale, in October.
