Roger Waters isn't wasting his time in quarantine. 

Keeping to social distancing regulations, Waters and his bandmates performed a lockdown rendition of Pink Floyd's "Mother" from their respective homes.

"Social distancing is a necessary evil in COVID world," the bassist tweeted as he unleashed the new quarantine performance. "Watching ‘Mother’ reminds me just how irreplaceable the joy of being in a band is."

Waters had originally planned to kick off his This Is Not A Drill tour in the states by July, but like many other artists, he has been forced to postpone dates until 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic. In the meantime, the rocker is keeping busy by perfecting the upcoming show. 

“We didn’t stop for a single second,” he shared “The show is part rock ’n’ roll arena show, part cinema. It’s couched on this idea that we are divided between the ruling classes, who I characterize as living in the iCloud. They live in the sky – it’s all white up there, and they live in great luxury. And then there’s the netherworld where the rest of us shuffle around, uncomfortably numb. And then there’s a third place, the bar, which is a figment of my imagination, where people from all over the world, all communities, colors, creeds, religions can gather and speak to one another. I will be employing actors to be characters in the bar — I’m already casting, and I’ve written the whole screenplay.”
