“This Is Not A Drill is a groundbreaking new rock and roll/cinematic extravaganza,” Roger Waters said. “Performed in the round, it is a stunning indictment of the corporate dystopia in which we all struggle to survive and a call to action to Love, Protect and Share our precious and precarious planet home.

“The show includes a dozen great songs from Pink Floyd’s Golden Era alongside several new ones, words and music, same writer, same heart, same soul, the same man. Could be his last hurrah. Wow! My first farewell tour! Don’t miss it”.

Waters, on lead vocals, guitars, bass and piano, will be joined on stage by Jonathan Wilson on guitars and vocals, Dave Kilminster on guitars and vocals, Jon Carin on keyboards, guitar and vocals, Gus Seyffert on bass and vocals, Robert Walter on keyboards, Joey Waronker on drums, Shanay Johnson on vocals, Amanda Belair on vocals and Seamus Blake on saxophone.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, 30 September at 1 pm GMT from Live Nation.
