Some good news for our friends in Europe – we now have the revised (2021) dates for the Munster, Germany, show, and the two dates in Spain (Barcelona and Madrid). We’ve also added a show in Poland, at Klub Wytwórnia in Łódź (tickets for which go on sale on Monday 22 June), and added two shows in Portugal (Porto’s Super Bock Arena and Lisbon’s Campo Pequeno, and tickets for these two shows go on sale Friday 19 June).
David Gilmour has announced that he will be releasing his first new song in five years via the release of Polly Samson’s new audiobook, A Theatre for Dreamers.
I’m amazed if a collaborative words and music audiobook hasn’t been done before but am thrilled with how this has worked out. Sad for the actor who had to pull out but Polly Samson’s narration surprised us all and it’s been a great project for me during lockdown to also add some instrumental passages between chapters and to record the A Theatre for Dreamers inspired song, Yes, I Have Ghosts, with the help of our daughter, Romany.
Pink Floyd have launched a new playlist on Spotify and YouTube, with new tracks being added each day.
Titled “Syd, Roger, Richard, Nick and David” the playlist kicked off with Us & Them Live at the Empire Pool in Wembley 1974, from the Dark Side of the MoonExperience and Immersion sets. Since then a number of tracks have been added from the Floyd’s 60s output, along with Fearless from Meddle.
While more hardcore Floyd fans would have heard most of these tracks (and likely own multiple versions of them), it seems like a good spot for newcomers or returning fans to hop in.
Remember to check the playlist each day to see what new track has been added.
