David Gilmour To Perform At Pompeii – Official Mark this one in your diary. David Gilmour will be performing two shows at Pompeii on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th July 2016. Rolling Stone had originally reported that David will probably play at the site’s Roman Amphitheatre, rather than the Large Theatre where the documentary “Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii” was made. However, it’s since been clarified that David will be performing at Pompeii’s Roman Amphitheatre, scene of the original Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii. (Confused? Rolling Stone completely messed up that story because the Roman Amphitheatre was in fact where Pink Floyd performed). David will have an audience this time, the stone Amphitheatre can hold about 2,000 It’s understood that the concert/s will be filmed in high definition and then screened in theaters for three days before going to DVD. Tickets go on sale on Tuesday 22nd March at 1pm CET – from DavidGilmour.com.Tickets are priced at €300 each plus a 15% booking fee.You will be limited to two tickets per person for one show only (not both).

David Gilmour – New Album Named & USA Tour for 2016! David Gilmour and his wife Polly Samson appeared at this years Borris House Festival of Writing and Ideas, at Carlow, (South East Ireland) on Saturday (6 June).
It was their debut discussion about their songwriting partnership and their first public appearance together. Naturally, discussion mainly centered around the writing process, especially about the Division Bell
and On an Island, but probably of most interest was when the discussion turned to David’s upcoming new album. Polly said that the theme was ‘Carpe Diem’ (Seize the day)
and David said (after being pressed) that the title of his new album is ‘Rattle That Lock’. UPDATE: There’s been a lot of confusion as to what actually was played and or performed at this event. We have now had the good fortune to be able to listen to a recording of the whole thing (Not available to the public – sorry) and here’s what actually happened. David kicked off by playing a recording of ‘High Hopes’ and then did a brief acoustic version live of ‘Smile’. He then played a recording of a song from ‘Rattle That Lock’ called ‘Whatever It Takes’. A bit later he played a recording of ‘Louder Than Words’, and then did an acoustic version of ‘The Blue’. This was followed by David playing a recording of ‘In Any Tongue’ from the new album, and last a lovely jazz number called ‘The Girl In The Yellow Dress’ with Jools Holland on the keys (a recording – also from the new album).With thanks to our AFG Ireland Correspondent David Mcgart.(pictured with David & Polly) and many others. BTW – David confirmed to one of those in attendance that he will be touring the USA in 2016!!! If you want to listen to a couple of short clips that David played, then get your bums over to our good friend The Doctor and listen to his Latest Podcast (Around the 1h 29m mark)

Front Of House We are reliably informed that Colin Norfield will be doing Front Of House duties for David Gilmour’s 2015 European tour. Colin is no stranger to David Gilmour, having worked on his On An Island tour in 2006. Colin also worked Front Of House for David at a 2001 London show as well as the Royal Festival Hall and Paris shows in 2002. Of course he was also on the Pink Floyd Division Bell tour in 1994.

David Gilmour Confirms He Is Considering Touring New Album! David Gilmour has told Rolling Stone he is considering touring his new album (Expected in 2015 as we exclusively revealed on 17 June 2014). David said, when talking about his new album “It’s coming along very well, There are some sketches that aren’t finished, and some of them will be started again. There’s a few months’ work in it yet. I’m hoping to get it out this following year. Then I’m hoping to do an old man’s tour, not a 200-date sort of thing.” Gilmour could easily fill arenas, but he plans to play smaller venues, similar to what he did on his most recent tour, in 2006. “There haven’t been many discussions about the tour,” he says. “But places like Radio City Music Hall sound like the right sort of vibe for me.”
