As previously reported, Waters’ This Is Not a Drill tour kicks off July 8 in Pittsburgh and is scheduled through an October 3 concert in Dallas. The shows will be staged “in the round.”

In a video released when the tour was initially announced, Waters explains that he was inspired to hit the road again because he thinks it’s important to get across his political message to people at a time of great upheaval in the world.  “As the clock ticks faster and faster and faster down to extinction, it seemed like a good idea to make a fuss about it,” Roger said. “So that’s why I’m going on the road.”
