Roger Waters, who built his name with Pink Floyd, is bringing his audiovisual extravaganza This Is Not a Drill tour to Denver on September 2.

The concert, which will pull out all the visual stops, will take place at the Pepsi Center.

Instead of turning the stadium into a traditional theatrical space, the show will take place in the round.

“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?’" explained Waters to Rolling Stone's Kory Grow. "That’s what I’ve spent the last 50 years doing, expressing myself."


The tour will hit 31 cities.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, January 31, at Ticketmaster
