Rogers Waters Unveils 'This Is Not a Drill' North American Tour
Following up the massive "Us + Them" tour, Pink Floyd hero Roger Waters is taking a whole new live show across North America. Called "This Is Not a Drill," the tour kicks off this summer, and it will indeed be coming to Canada.

Starting in July, the tour will include several Canadian dates, including Toronto, Quebec City, Montreal, Vancouver and Edmonton. On top of that, Waters will play many more stops down in the U.S.

See the full schedule below. Tickets for the tour go on sale on January 31st at 10 a.m. local time.

UPDATE (2/25, 12 p.m. EST): Waters has now added a second show in Toronto, as well as second dates in Philadelphia and San Francisco. You can see his updated schedule below.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Waters explained the following of the upcoming tour:

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. 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. That's why we're going on the road. That's why speak to each other in pubs. That's why this conversation should be on everybody's lips, constantly, the whole time, because it's super important. So I hope you'll all come to the shows. This is not a drill.

As for the actual musical content of the tour, Waters explained: "It'll be a new show. It will be no-holds-barred. My work is to think, 'Well, how can I make rock'n'roll more interesting or theatrical or exciting or visual or musical or whatever?' That's what I've spent the last 50 years doing, expressing myself."
