Roger Waters has announced a three month North American tour, kicking off in Pittsburgh on July 8th and continuing through October 3rd in Dallas. Dubbed the ‘This Is Not a Drill’ tour, the trek includes 31 shows across Canada and the U.S. It follows his extensive 157-date Us + Them world tour, which wrapped little more than a year ago.

The 76-year old creative genius behind Pink Floyd, known for his politically-charged performances, told Rolling Stone back in September that the new show would be “no-holds-barred” and “even more political” than Us + Them.

“To be blunt, we need to change the way we organize ourselves as a human race or die,” said Waters in a video announcing the upcoming tour. “This tour will be part of a global movement by people who are concerned by others to affect the change that is necessary. That’s why we’re going on the road. That’s why speak to each other in pubs. That’s why this conversation should be on everybody’s lips, constantly, the whole time, because it’s super important. So I hope you’ll all come to the shows. This is not a drill.”

A trailer for the tour features tracks from Pink Floyd as well as Waters solo career. Watch it in the player below.

Tickets for the This Is Not a Drill tour go on sale January 31st via Ticketmaster.
