COMMENTS

Roger's new tour - THIS IS NOT A DRILL - has now been announced, and is a new production. As when his previous tour (Us + Them) was announced, details of what this new show will entail are brief; we suspect a new set list, and new presentation, and the image created to publicise the tour does note that the show will be "live in the round" - a departure from Roger's previous shows.

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...

UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic, this show was postponed from its original date in 2020. Roger said about the cancellations: 

"Bummer, but if it saves one life, it's worth it."

Ticketholders are advised to hold onto their original tickets and await further information.

WARNING - SPOILERS AHEAD!

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

The first proper show of the tour (there was a dress rehearsal at Bryce Jordan Center, University Park, Pennsylvania on Saturday, July 2nd) saw an enthralled crowd in Pittsburgh taking in the music, in a diverse and interesting set list, the spectacle, and the occasion itself. First nights are always fun, with everyone being in the same boat in terms of no knowledge of what is going to happen and when.

Initial reports are that the show was quite an experience, but as always, we value your first hand views on all the concerts - so if you went, please let us know your thoughts!

CONCERT PICTURES and COMMENTS by BD CONTRIBUTOR, Donald Bohach

Donald noted that "[Roger] played a new song called, 'The Bar'. He played at a piano. During the song he played footage of the Sioux Indian protest at Standing Rock Reservation. He said, "One day I'll record this and give it to all of you." I won't try to remember the lyrics correctly, but it is a ballad that is about shared loss and pain."
