xx David Gilmour - Rattle That Lock (September 2015)
« Thread started on: Mar 4th, 2015, 12:35pm »

I don't have On an Island but I do have Remember that Night which has a live version of the entire album. I like that one so I'm looking forward to this. Presumably he'll be doing the usual classic Floyd tunes in his tour (though of course, no "Echoes" cry)

David Gilmour has announced that he will perform live in the UK and Europe in September 2015 to coincide with the release of his, as yet untitled, fourth solo studio album. Tickets go on sale for all venues, detailed below, at 10:00am GMT on Friday 6 March 2015.
Kicking off at the historic Roman amphitheatre – Arena Pula, Croatia on 12 September, the tour will continue through some of the world’s most beautiful cities and venues. It then visits Verona’s amphitheatre, the Verona Arena on 14 September and the Teatro Le Mulina in Florence, Italy on September 15. Moving to France it continues on 17 September in Orange at the Roman amphitheatre Theatre Antique d’Orange, before Germany’s Oberhausen Konig-Pilsener-Arena on 19 September and finally three consecutive nights at London’s world famous Royal Albert Hall on 23, 24 and 25 September.
Tickets go on sale for all venues from the normal outlets at 10:00am GMT on Friday 6 March 2015. More details, including links and telephone numbers, can be found at www.davidgilmour.com.

There is a pre-sale, via the "Brain Damage" website or FB. Tickets were on sale last night and I bought 2 in the middle of the Arena floor, for Thursday. Not so much available for the Friday but Wed also had quite a good selection. I suspect that most of the better seats will have gone before the General Sale on Friday morning.

I paid £90 each for us to see Roger Waters at Wembley; from 70 yards away! Would rather pay these prices to see DG at such an intimate venue (floor was £104.50, inc fees).

I agree but they are selling like hot cakes, even at these prices. If prices were lower, it would make it even harder to obtain tickets. Also, they at least have made efforts to prevent touts getting too many (The lead booker has to take photo ID on the night of the show and can only buy 4 tickets. Also, the link via the Brain Damage site alerts most die hard fans to the pre-sale).

I dare say. Very hard on the fans who can't afford or justify the price. I like David Gilmour, but this is very greedy!

Yes, I'm a little dismayed at how expensive the tickets are. It would be a dream to see him live...

Looking forward to him coming to the USA. I've never seen Floyd or any of its members, and I think I'd pay a little more than I'm comfortable with to see Gilmour live. smiley

Finally there's official news on David Gilmour's new album: http://www.davidgilmour.com/index.htm

Here is a small sample of the title track, which will be released in its entirety tomorrow (July 17th). See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6glp_dGao90

This sounds so fresh, and it's so wonderful to see and hear David singing and playing again!

Downloaded the new song from Amazon! Not earth-shattering but not bad at all, and I'll be travelling on SNCF today! laugh (The song is essentially based around the SNCF jingle that they play in train stations in France)

sad
Listened to it three times on the bounce.
AWFUL! BLAND! UNINSPIRING!
Let's hope for better with the album.
Now who does it remind me of? Steely Dan meets 80s Chris Rea maybe?

Pleasant enough, but a disappointment to most PF fans, I'd imagine!

I'm not going to bother mincing words. I think the song is awful.

Alfred has a point. As an album track off a new Steely Dan record, this would be okay. As a title track to a new Gilmour album, it's embarrassing.
