Three additional dates for Roger Waters' 2020 This Is Not A Drill tour Print E-mail

Roger Waters - This Is Not A Drill 2020 TourSome more good news for some of our readers in the US and Canada - Roger Waters has added a second show to three locations on his upcoming 2020 North American tour, This Is Not A Drill.

Tickets for the following new dates go on sale on Friday, February 28th at 10am local time, through the links shown next to the venue details below. The use of our direct links to buy your tickets gives a small but valuable contribution toward the ongoing BD site running costs, without costing you any extra, and is much appreciated!

Roger's upcoming tour is, as normal, shrouded in secrecy, but as the tour posters reveal it is a first for Roger as it is being presented "in the round". This basically means that the stage is sat in the middle of the floor level of the venue, with the band and performance being aimed at those sat all around. This should also mean that most seats in the venue will have an excellent view! 

Should additional shows be announced elsewhere, we will of course let you know as soon as we can. As ever, we have set up dedicated pages for each of these shows, which you can get to either by the links above, or via the Roger Waters 2020 link shown to in the left-hand menu.

 
Roger Waters performing during Assange march tomorrow Print E-mail

March for Assange with Roger Waters, 22 February 2020Announced today is a march for Julian Assange, which is taking place tomorrow (22nd February, 2020) in London, and as part of the announcement, Roger Waters has noted that he will be performing during the event.

The march for Assange goes from Australia House, Aldwych, to Parliament Square. They note that "Assange's full extradition trial begins the following Monday (24th February) and that the Trump administration is seeking to put Assange in jail for 175 years for publishing the Afghan and Iraq War Logs".

They will assemble from 11:30am GMT, to leave Australia House at 12:30pm. Others participating will include Chrissie Hynde, Brian Eno, Vivienne Westwood and MIA.

Obviously we don't know the nature of Roger's performance, but many of you will recall that he played Wish You Were Here in a similar, yet smaller, protest back in September 2019, again in London.

UPDATE: Roger didn't perform any music during the event, but read from a prepared speech to the assembled crowd. Chrissie Hynde was (we understand) the only musician to perform any music. We have a couple of pictures of Roger during the event that we will be adding very shortly.
