"This is not a drill!" And with that, former Pink Floyd conceptualist and bassist Roger Waters announced the dates for his summer North American tour of the same name. Expect Waters' usual flair for the dramatic, with the show being "in the round," and no doubt "in the moment," as Waters promises a very political show. Expect a mix of Floyd classics and Waters' solo material.

Roger Waters plays the Amway Center on Thursday, Aug. 13, at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Jan. 29.
