David Gilmour - Comfortably Numb (featuring Purple Rain)

“As a tribute to Prince David started the second solo of Comfortably Numb with Purple Rain”


Less lasers than usual.

Band rock solid, sooo tight. Looked very relaxed, and Guy Pratt visibly enjoying himself. Astronomy Domine as much a highlight as the last time. Kicks arse at the opening of the second set. And it was filmed. Plenty of shots went live onto Mr. Screen with no lines visible at all – the video seems to be of film quality. Looked fantastic.

Thanks Mike Lacey


I was at the show last night, it was my first full on Gilmour show and I can safely say it’s the best show I’ve ever seen. It’s an experience that will stay with me forever! He truly is the best guitarist on the planet! If more tickets are released for his September RAH dates I’ll probably go! Hearing High Hopes live was mindblowing!

Thanks KAOS_91

The Royal Albert Hall is a concert hall on the northern edge of South Kensington, London, best known for holding the Proms concerts annually each summer since 1941. It has a capacity (depending on configuration of the event) of up to 5,272 seats. The Hall is a registered charity held in trust for the nation and receives no public or government funding.

David Gilmour last performed here in 2006 and the filming from those shows ended up as the Remember That Night DVD.
