David Gilmour guests at final Earl’s Court concert

Posted December 14, 2014 by Floydian Slip

final-earls-court-showPink Floyd’s David Gilmour made a surprise guest appearance with Bombay Bicycle Club last night at the final concert to be held at London’s Earl’s Court.

The venue is scheduled for demolition.

Gilmour joined the band for two songs: He played lap steel guitar for the group’s “Rinse Me Down,” and then played acoustic guitar and sang Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here.”

Gilmour had given Bombay Bicycle Club’s Jamie MacColl his first guitar when he was a child.

Earl’s Court will now be demolished to make way for a 77-acre redevelopment project. The project will include areas of Kensington, Chelsea, Hammersmith and Fulham, and is expected to take 20 years to complete.

Pink Floyd first played Earl’s Court in May 1973, the first year rock bands started frequenting the venue.

“Dark Side” returns to Billboard Top 20

Posted December 12, 2014 by Floydian Slip

9Pink Floyd‘s “The Dark Side of the Moon” (1973) climbed to the #13 position on the Billboard 200 album chart.

The album sold just more than 38,000 “album equivalent units” last week, resulting in its best chart showing since Oct. 15, 2011, when it re-entered the Top 20 at #12 thanks to a new re-issue.

“Dark Side” has spent 889 weeks on the chart, the most-charted weeks for any album in the history of the Billboard 200.

Billboard speculates the album’s jump this week was due to a price discount on “Dark Side” offered by the Google Play store the week ending Dec. 7.

The calculations that determine the Billboard 200 have become more complex recently. The chart now measures “multi-metric album consumption,” which includes “pure album sales.” The ranking combines on-demand streaming and digital sales in addition to traditional album sales, all measured by Nielsen Music.
