Pink Floyd's Roger Waters announces North American tour with five Canadian stops

Iconic rock musician (and co-founder of Pink Floyd) Roger Waters just announced he's heading out on a North American tour beginning in July, and luckily he'll be stopping in five different Canadian cities. 

Waters announced his This Is Not A Drill tour earlier today and it includes a total of 31 cities across Canada and the U.S. — which is quite a decline from his previous Us + Them tour, for which he played 157 shows all over the world. 

Waters will kick off the tour in Pittsburgh on July 8 before heading to Canadian tour stops in Toronto (July 17), Quebec City (July 21), Montreal (July 23), Vancouver (September 14) and Edmonton (September 16).

Back in September, Waters described the upcoming tour in an interview with Rolling Stone. 

"It’ll be a new show. It will be no-holds-barred," he said at the time. 

"My work is to think, 'Well, how can I make rock and roll more interesting or theatrical or exciting or visual or musical or whatever?' That’s what I’ve spent the last 50 years doing, expressing myself."

A teaser trailer for the tour was also released today, and clips of several classic Pink Floyd songs playing in the background suggest he's likely to play much of the music rock fans know and love. 

Some of the hits from his most recent album, Igor Stravinsky's The Soldier's Tale, can also be heard in the trailer. 

Tickets for the Roger Waters: This Is Not A Drill North American tour go on sale to the public on January 31 at 10 a.m.
