Roger Waters and the Crypto Experience: Former Pink Floyd man Roger Waters‘ 2020 This is Not a Drill shows finally reach L.A. two years late for obvious reasons.
The tour kicked off in July in this year, in Pittsburgh. A press release reads:
“The show consisted of 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 previewed 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 commented, “The champion sits on his golden throne in his echoing, empty, magnificent home. Looking out over the sea of bones, the last man standing, stands alone. Think about it. This is not a drill.”
Very cryptic! It’s actually been a very busy two years for Waters, which have seen him face accusations of anti-semitism, something that he vehemently denies. Don’t expect him to steer clear of politics in L.A. though — the man is still wading into choppy waters (pun intended), as he always has. Don’t expect him to change.
Roger Waters and the Crypto Experience: The event takes place at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, September 27 and Wednesday, September 28 at the Crypto.com Arena.
