Roger Waters returns to Atlanta with in-the-round show

Three years after bringing his “Us+ Them” tour to town, Roger Waters will return to Atlanta this summer with a new, in-the-round show.

The “This is Not a Drill” tour will play 31 cities starting in July in Pittsburgh.

Waters’ show will pull into State Farm Arena at 8 p.m. Aug. 20. Various pre-sales begin at 10 a.m. Jan. 29 with a public on-sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 31 via 

Waters said in the tour announcement that the audio/visual experience will continue his “message of love”

“It’ll be a new show. It will be no-holds-barred. My work is to think, ‘Well, how can I make rock & roll more interesting or theatrical or exciting or visual or musical or whatever?’,” Waters told Rolling Stone last year. “That’s what I’ve spent the last 50 years doing, expressing myself.”
