Entitled Us & Them the new tour kicks off on the 26th May at the Mo Sprint Center, Kansas City, the tour is based loosely around Rogers career with Pink Floyd and as a solo artist, We cannot confirm how much material will be from his career as a solo artist but with a new album Is This The Life We Really Want? coming to our shelves on the 2nd June we can assume a fair portion will be from this long anticipated release.

We have managed to find some new information regarding the upcoming release of David Gilmour : Live at Pompeii from a blog article written by Italian Journalist Francesco Prisco .
“So the fact is: The DVD / Blu-ray filming David Gilmour’s gesture in the two return concerts on Pompeii will be released early next November . Until now, the only official news circulated about the product concerns the installation of an hour in 4k by Gavin Elder’s signature of the English company DCD Rights. This is a two-day event that the Cambridge guitarist on the 7th and 8th of July 2016 held in the Vesuvius amphitheater 45 years away from the Rockumentary realized with Pink Floyd and directed by Adrian Maben. Negotiations are under way for the sale of television rights to the work – here in Italy could end up on Sky Arts – but the idea of production is to sell Dvd and Blu ray by David Gilmour: Live at Pompeii, Beginning of November. The Superintendent of the Pompeii Excavations, as agreed by the parties, will receive royalties from the sale of the work. Floydian friends will still have something to put under the Christmas tree this year.”
