COMMENTS

The European leg of Roger's new tour - THIS IS NOT A DRILL - has now been announced, and is a new production. The show will be presented "live in the round" - a departure from Roger's previous shows. The production has already been seen in the US and Canada in the latter part of 2022, showcasing both the new visuals, and the new set list. More details of that can be found in the show pages for Roger's 2022 tour - but don't go there if you don't want to have any surprises spoilt!

Those who have attended - or have seen pictures/video of - Roger's previous tours, will know just how spectacular and moving this new production is likely to be, and how it is a show you really shouldn't miss! From comments Roger has made in recent interviews, it could be his final tour...

The presale of tickets starts on Wednesday, September 21st at 10am (local time). The regular sale of tickets starts on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23rd at 10am (local time), with both through THIS LINK. Using this direct link also helps toward the ongoing running costs of this site, and is appreciated!

SET LIST - highlight the following with your mouse to read...
FIRST HALF: Comfortably Numb, The Happiest Days of Our Lives, Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2, Another Brick in the Wall, Part 3, The Powers That Be, The Bravery of Being Out of Range, Broken Bones, The Bar, Have A Cigar, Wish You Were Here, Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Sheep. SECOND HALF: In the Flesh, Run Like Hell, Déjà Vu, Is This the Life We Really Want?, Money, Us and Them, Any Colour You Like, Brain Damage, Eclipse, Two Suns in the Sunset, The Bar (Reprise), Outside the Wall.

WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD!

Do not read on if you don't want surprises to be spoilt, regarding what the band played!

Night twenty-four of the 2023 This Is Not A Drill tour for Roger Waters, his band, and crew, the second of a brace of shows in the French capital, Paris, and the addition of a song within the first half - from his most recent solo album, Broken Bones was added in after The Bravery Of Being Out Of Range and The Bar. Is this a permanent addition? We shall see!

Two days off now (albeit travelling, as well as breaking down this show, and setting up the next) before arriving in Hamburg, Germany, for the first of a number of shows in that country.

Initial reports from the fan community are that the show was as expected from last year's experiences of Roger's latest production, but as always, we value your first hand views on all the concerts - so if you went, please let us know your thoughts!

YOUR HELP NEEDED! We want to cover Roger's concerts the best we can, to share the experience with everyone, especially those who won't be able to attend the shows. We'd love to see ANY pictures, tickets scans, reviews, newspaper reports, and anything else you come across for this show - we look forward to hearing from you!
