Roger Waters

Two years after its postponement due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Roger Waters’ “This is Not a Drill” tour touched down in Sacramento, California, on September 20 for an epic, spectacular in-the-round performance. The lavish, multidimensional two-set show was all at once a rock show and a theatrical drama played out via bold visuals displayed in text, images, and video clips on massive LED screens, and also featured a couple of airborne components (pig and sheep dirigibles).

Tuesday, Roger Waters brought his This Is Not A Drill tour to the Mile High City and gave the 19,000 in attendance just what they were looking for: two sets of amazing music, eye candy, epiphanies, and floating farm animals.

After a 4-year hiatus from the road, Roger Waters: This Is Not A Drill 2022 North American tour kicked off last night, July 6, at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, PA.  This tour marks the first time that Waters has performed “in the round”.

The show consisted of 20 Pink Floyd and Roger Waters classic songs, including: “Us & Them”, “Comfortably Numb”, “Wish You Were Here”, and “Is This The Life We Really Want?”.  In addition, Waters previewed a new song, “The Bar”.

Due to overwhelming demand, Roger Waters: This Is Not A Drill 2022 North American tour has announced more shows across the U.S. this summer. Columbus, OH at Nationwide Arena on August 10, 2022; Glendale, AZ at Gila River Arena on October 3, 2022; and Austin, TX at Moody Center on October 6, 2022. Tickets for Denver, CO at Ball Arena on September 6, 2022 are on sale now.

The revival of the venerable Newport Folk Festival continued with a very strong roster of artists this year that expanded once again the boundaries of what is “folk music.” Folk purists – the kind of people who booed Dylan when he went electric at the 1965 festival (this year was the 50th anniversary of that iconic set) – would probably have seen their heads explode if they caught My Morning Jacket’s surprise set on first night of this year’s gathering.

For those of you headed to New Orleans Jazzfest this year, on Saturday, May 4 at The Blue Nile, we'll gather six of our most favorite musicians for a band called The Royal Potato Family All-Stars.
