See the crap he has spewed (not music) it would be hard for me to enjoy and would just sell the tickets.
Even if I couldn't sell them I don't think I would go.

Sell the ticket. Refuse to give a dime.

I bet some ANTIFA types would buy them.

as much as I like Pink Floyd, I wouldn't spend a dime to go see Waters live.

the political pontificating would ruin the music, and they'd probably confiscate the MAGA hat as being an incitement of hatred

I'd try to sell them

I'd put them on one of the reselling sites.... I'd rather lose money than go see that or spend time surrounded by thousands of people who DON'T have a problem with it.

Go and enjoy it to the degree possible.

Donate at least the price of the tickets to your choice of the JPFO, NRA, DHFC, NRC, or your state Republican Party; whatever you want. Money trumps boycotting.

I would sell the tickets. I like a few of their albums but would not pay money to be subjected to that shit. The hell with him - he should stay on his side of the pond and limit his opinions to that side as well.

This. I really would like to see him but the cost of the show is too rich for me. If I were able to splurge I would go and ignore the political BS.

There was another member on a different website and he went to the concert. He said most of the show was him going on a tyrade about repubs in general and of course Trump. I have seen on Youtube a few clips of his concert and it was enough to get me to turn them off. Tons of idiots in the audience applauding his remarks. I couldn't go to the show/concert without getting p.o..

Given the additional information I would sell the tickets. You should be able to get face value or more. This looks more like a political rally than a concert. That is not what I paid for. That is way beyond acceptable. I wonder if he will lead the audience in chants. RIDICULOUS.

This. I wouldn't be able to handle the show, based on the images posted. No way.

I think I would be disappointed if I stayed home. Pretty sure I'd be pissed if I went. I might have a hard time keeping my mouth shut if I was standing next to a libtard. Rather be disappointed.

Yeah, subsidizing that dreck is not something I would do. If I went, I'd blow a gasket trying not to react...who needs that?

The one thing those people can do is count noses. If that kind of nonsense leads to fewer butts in seats and fewer ticket sales, they'll know. Otherwise the headlines are "Anti-Trump Concert Fills the Halls."

As to what to do with the tickets. Stubhub, maybe, or just send an empty-seat message? If you're feeling more activist, maybe burn the tickets, and video/photograph the burning and release the footage/pictures to local paper music critic?

Hey you, Waters!
Ha Ha charade you are.
Roger you're nearly a treat,
Roger you're nearly a treat but you're really a cry.

Sell the tix if you can, IMO
I wouldn't be anywhere near that shit show. I'd likely stroke out exposed to all that buffoonery. If he's so frikkin' socially concious, er magnanimous, er convinced of his rectitude, a true believer, why is he charging for a political rally?

A well-heeled, big-wheel, indeed.

I'm not sure if you guys have been to any pro trump, MAGA, anti-sharia, etc events since the election, but I can almost guarantee you, wearing a maga hat would end up with an ass beating, likely an extended hospital stay. I'm part of a group who had a member wear a maga hat to an NYC bar and had a bottle broken over his cheek and back of his head. He needs multiple rounds of cosmetic surgery to look quasi normal. These people won't "boo" you out of there... they legitimately think you're a Nazi.
