He is back! The leader of the late cult band Pink Floyd, Roger Waters hits Quebec ity on July 21, 2020 with its new tour This is Not a Drill.
Après avoir charmé Québec avec une présentation spéciale de son dernier spectacle The Wall sur les plaines d’Abraham en 2012, Rogers Waters returns in Quebec City on July 21, 2020 with its brand new show This is Not a Drill. . Tickets for general public will be on sale Friday January 31 2020 from 10:00 AM on the website of the Videotron Centre. He will also perform 2 days days later, July 23, 2020 in Montreal at the Bell Centre. It is a must-see event, so be sure not to miss it!
For this most recent tour, the “creative genius” behind the success of the British group Pink Floyd offers us a 360-degree stage composition, which will allow everyone to admire Waters’ many artistic talents. In a recent interview with the renowned Rolling Stones magazine, the septuagenarian says he does not want to make any concessions with his new show. If we trust the latest performances he has offered, we can expect several artifices, both visual and audio. The artist has always embellished his performances with several theatrical effects, videos, wacky characters and others that bring all spectators into his world of peace and harmony. With this 360-degree scene setup, we can expect several surprise shots.
Since its very public split with Pink Floyd, and the ensuing law suits, Waters had a certain success with its solo career, but its world-wide fame is mainly due to the large-scale show that he produces, like the historic The Wall – Live in Berlin in 1990.
Played in the “no-man’s-land” between West and Eastern Germany just after the fall of the Berlin wall, the show included many music stars such as Bryan Adams, Scorpion, Cindy Lauper and Van Morrison and gathered more than 300,000 people to Potsdamer Platz. The historic performance was captured on camera and released as a film the same year, and is considered the most historically relevant show of the century. Since then, Roger Waters took The Wall around the globe, with its 2010-2013 tour been, to this day, the third most grossing tour in music history.
