Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters had to postpone his North American tour to next year.
The This Is Not A Drill Tour was set to kick-off on July 8 in Pittsburgh and run through October 2 in Dallas, ahead of the 2020 Presidential Election. When the tour was originally announced, Waters said that “we need to change the way we organize ourselves as a human race or die.” Now, due to concerns over coronavirus, the trek has been rescheduled to 2021.
“The bad news is: I’ve had to postpone my tour until next year,” Waters said in a statement. “Bummer, but if it saves one life, it’s worth it. The good news is a federal Judge in Washington, D.C. ruled on March 25, 2020 that Trump’s Dakota Access Pipeline Executive order was ILLEGAL and demands an E.I.S. (Environmental Impact Statement). This is a huge victory for the STANDING ROCK SIOUX TRIBES. POWER TO THE PEOPLE!”
At this point, Waters has not announced the rescheduled tour dates but advises fans to hang onto their tickets until the new dates are announced. Tickets will be honored at the new shows, although refunds will be available via point of purchase.
Waters last released the record Is This the Life We Really Want? in 2017, which is known for tracks “Smell the Roses,” “Deja Vu,” “The Last Refugee,” and “Wait for Her.”
