Roger Waters (opens in new tab) has released a new video to announce the rescheduling of his This Is Not A Drill US tour dates to 2022. You can watch the video below.

Originally scheduled for 2020, the dates were postponed due to the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic. Waters will now play 36 shows across the US and Canada starting in Pittsburgh on July 6, 2022 at the PPG Paints Arena.

"We have a new start date for This Is Not A Drill," says Waters. "This Is Not A Drill will be a rock and roll show that's about the fact that this is our lives ending. We're standing on the precipice and it needs the slightest little nudge and we'll all be yesterday's news. This Is Not A Drill is me shouting it from my rooftop and hoping that you will all start shouting from your rooftops and we all start acting as one and put an end to this madness."
