David Gilmour suggests new album, tour in the works

Posted September 6, 2017 by Floydian Slip

In a new promo video for his upcoming “Live at Pompeii” film, David Gilmour suggests a new album and tour may be in his future.

“There are several songs that are close to being complete, which didn’t make it onto this album,” he says, referring to 2015’s “Rattle That Lock.”

“(But) I can’t see myself doing another tour with making another album first, and that takes me a while. It took 10 years last time, and I’m really hoping — without making any promises — that it won’t take 10 years this time, that I’ll get back in and start working again. And following that, yeah, I’ll be out again.”

“David Gilmour Live at Pompeii” shows at cinemas across the world one night only, Wednesday, Sept. 13.

The performance will be released as a 2-CD set, Blu-ray disc, 2-DVD set, Blu-ray and CD deluxe edition boxset, and 4-LP set on Friday, Sept. 29.

Ferrari owned by David Gilmour for sale

Posted June 24, 2017 by Floydian Slip

A 1988 Ferrari F40 Berlinetta first owned by David Gilmour will go on the auction block June 30.

The car, purchased by Gilmour in July 1988, is expected to fetch as much as £1 million at Bonhams’ Goodwood Festival of Speed auction.

Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason purchased a similar model at the same time as Gilmour at the Ferrari factory in Maranello, Italy, after Floyd’s Modena leg of its Momentary Lapse of Reason Tour. The pair are said to have driven them back to the U.K. following their purchase.

List price for the F40 in 1988 was £163,000. Just more than 1,300 were produced.

Though the car can reach a respectable 201 mph, its interior is spartan, sporting a pair of red body contour seats.

The auction takes place at Chichester, Goodwood.

See dozens of photos of the car at the Bohmans website.

David Gilmour Pompeii concert coming to theaters one night only

Posted June 1, 2017 by Floydian Slip

“David Gilmour: Live At Pompeii,” a concert film of David Gilmour‘s 2016 shows at the ancient amphitheater, is coming to theaters this fall.

Directed by Gavin Elder and presented in 4K resolution with Dolby Atmos sound, the film will show on a single date, Wednesday, Sept. 13, at more than 2,000 theaters.

Gilmour’s shows took place July 7 and 8 last summer, 45 years after Pink Floyd famously played the same venue to an audience of none for the film “Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii.”

Music for the show is taken from Gilmour’s “Rattle That Lock” (2015) and “On an Island” (2006), and also includes a number of Floyd classics.

The film is presented by Trafalgar Releasing. You can search participating theaters to purchase tickets in advance, and request a screening, if there are no participating venues near you.

Fathom Events offered a similar arrangement for “Roger Waters The Wall” in September 2015. Also originally billed as a “one-night only” affair, in that case, an additional screening was added immediately after the first one concluded.
