Pink Floyd's Roger Waters to stop at Target Center on North America tour

The celebrated artist will play Minneapolis in August.

Roger Waters, the frontman of legendary British rock group Pink Floyd, will pay a visit to Minneapolis during his North American tour.

The acclaimed singer and songwriter, who has gone on to have a successful solo career in his own right, has announced the This Is Not A Drill tour, which will include a stop at Target Center on Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Waters was a key piece of Pink Floyd, penning memorable tracks including "Another Brick in the Wall" and "Have A Cigar," and co-writing songs such as "Breathe," "Comfortably Number," "Us And Them," and "Wish You Were Here," with bandmates Dave Gilmour and Nick Wright.

Waters and Gilmour have been touring separately now for decades, and Waters has built himself a reputation for some of the most spectacular audio visual displays in live music.

This time at Target Center, he will be performing in the round, with Waters telling Rolling Stone: "It’ll be a new show. It will be no-holds-barred ... political and humane.

"My work is to think, ‘Well, how can I make rock & roll more interesting or theatrical or exciting or visual or musical or whatever?’ That’s what I’ve spent the last 50 years doing, expressing myself."

As the Pioneer Press' Ross Raihala notes, the last time Waters hit the road in 2017 for his Us + Them tour, his shows featured anti-Trump imagery that caused some audience members to walk out.

Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 31. You can find more ticket information here.
