Due to great interest, Roger Waters is adding a second concert date on 25 May at Prague’s O2 arena
Roger Waters from the legendary Pink Floyd returns to Prague with his first farewell tour “This Is Not A Drill”. The most famous songs and a breathtaking audiovisual show guarantee an extraordinary experience!
“This Is Not A Drill is a ground breaking new rock and roll/cinematic extravaganza, performed in the round, it is a stunning indictment of the corporate dystopia in which we all struggle to survive, and a call to action to LOVE, PROTECT and SHARE our precious and precarious planet home. The show includes a dozen great songs from PINK FLOYD’S GOLDEN ERA along side several new ones, words and music, same writer, same heart, same soul, same man. Could be his last hurrah. Wow! My first farewell tour! Don’t miss it. Love R.”
“Arms wide, Waters explored the stage’s expanse, playing to all sides. Returning to the Pink Floyd canon, the group soared toward intermission with a murder’s row, rolling out “Have a Cigar,” “Wish You Were Here,” “Shine on you Crazy Diamond” and ‘Sheep.’” ~ FORBES
“Roger Waters’ superpower is the ability to open difficult conversations through his music, and he knows it.” ~ Chicago Sun Times
The show features 20 Pink Floyd and Roger Waters classic songs, including: “Us & Them”, “Comfortably Numb”, “Wish You Were Here”, and “Is This The Life We Really Want?”. In addition, Waters debuts a new song, “The Bar”.
Waters is on lead vocals, guitars, bass and piano and will be joined on stage by, Jonathan Wilson on guitars and vocals; Dave Kilminster on guitars and vocals; Jon Carin on keyboards, guitar and vocals, Gus Seyffert on bass and vocals; Robert Walter on keyboards, Joey Waronker on drums; Shanay Johnson on vocals; Amanda Belair on vocals and Seamus Blake on saxophone.
Roger Waters is a seventy-nine-year-old English musician and composer, co-founder of Pink Floyd, one of the most important bands in the history of popular music, formed in 1965. Pink Floyd were, and still are, a part of the lives of millions of people around the world, critically acclaimed and commercially hugely successful.
Roger Waters left Pink Floyd in the early 1980s due to disagreements over the future direction of the group, but he left us with Pink Floyd many classic albums, most notably the concept album The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and his original magnum opus The Wall.
In the following years, Waters continued to release solo albums, most notably Radio K.A.O.S. (1987) and Amused to Death (1992). His last solo album to date is “Is This the Life We Really Want?” from 2017.
Roger Waters has been touring relentlessly since 1999, performing both The Dark Side of the Moon and The Wall in Prague. His performances are always a treat for the ears and eyes, the music is always accompanied by impressive clips and various lighting effects.
His upcoming tour ” THIS IS NOT A DRILL TOUR 2023″ will also take generously from the work of Pink Floyd. This may be the last opportunity to hear and experience live the music of a musical legend that will never be repeated.
