Roger Waters’ ‘This is Not a Drill’ Tour Lauded For ‘Stunning Visuals’
After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters is bringing his ‘This Is Not A Drill’ tour to Golden 1 Center on Tuesday night.
The tour has received several positive reviews, mostly due in part to Waters’ commitment to the one-of-a-kind experience Pink Floyd fans have grown accustomed to.
“Pink Floyd followers who decided not to attend the show may regret it for years to come. The theater-in-the-round staging of the show was brilliant. By placing the stage in the middle of the floor of Nationwide Arena, the audience always had a musician performing right in front of them regardless of where their seats were,” - Broadway World Columbus
“If you’re the type of person who likes to ingest various psychedelic substances before a concert, I have to tell you: Ya don’t need them. There’s plenty of mind-warping stimulation to go around,” - Philadelphia Magazine
“Yes, Waters and his band played some of Pink Floyd’s greatest hits alongside some of Waters’ most breathtaking originals, and, yes, they played them all beautifully. And, yes, the visuals, which we’ll discuss in a moment, were stunning,” - Consequence Sound
“At one point during the show, Waters made the point that we must seize on the moment. That life is happening now. That this is not a drill. And to never, ever claim that Roger Waters is a f*****g conservative,” - Spectrum Culture
Waters offered fans a sneak peak of what the show entails during his Portland show.
The multi-time Grammy nominee also took some time on Twitter to reflect on his farewell tour.
This Is Not A Drill is a ground breaking new rock an roll/cinematic extravaganza, performed in the round, it is a stunning indictment of the corporate dystopia in which we all struggle to survive...— Roger Waters (@rogerwaters) April 15, 2022
