Roger Waters was to embark on his ambitious This Is Not A Drill tour this July across North America, but the Pink Floyd icon has been forced to postpone the tour as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Announcing the news on Instagram, Waters noted that it’s a “bummer, but if it saves one life, it’s worth it,” adding that there was “good news” regarding the Dakota Access Pipeline:

“A federal Judge in Washington DC ruled on March 25, 2020 that Trump’s Dakota Access Pipeline Executive order was ILLEGAL and demands an E.I.S (Environmental Impact Statement). This is a huge victory for the STANDING ROCK SIOUX TRIBES. POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!! Love R.”

In previous discussions about the This Is Not A Drill tour, Water had this to say:

“As the clock ticks faster and faster and faster down to extinction, it seemed like a good thing to make a fuss about it, so that’s why I’m going on the road,” he said. “To be blunt, we need to change the way we organize ourselves as a human race or die. This tour will be part of a global movement by people who are concerned by others to affect the change that is necessary. That’s why we’re going on the road. That’s why speak to each other in pubs. That’s why this conversation should be on everybody’s lips, constantly, the whole time, because it’s super important. So I hope you’ll all come to the shows. This is not a drill.”
