Dave Gilmour @ the Royal Albert Hall

Discussion in 'The ChitChat Lounge' started by waleed (London), May 30, 2006.

  1. Just had to let you guys about the concert I went to last night which was probably the best i have ever been to.

    For a guitar purist you don't get much better.
    I swear this guy is getting better with old age.

    In a four hour set which started with the classic 'Time' and the first half devoted to his new album 'On an Island'. We got a further 2 hours of all Pink Floyd classics.

    He had Dave Crosby and Graham Nash as backing vocals to replace the fascist ******* Roger Waters.

    Man was I trippin.

    But guess who walks in to do lead vocals in the final encore of 2 songs.
    None other than David Bowie.

    For all you lovers of Pink Floyd / Dave Gilmour - DO NOT MISS his tour.
    Satisfaction garaunteed.

    alpha1 I BLUES!

    Am sure he aint coming to India.
  6. @ Dennis - Not entirely son, he played several guitar types (electric, acoustic, Hawaian, Lap guitar, Steel and even a banjo). He even played alto Saxophone in one number.

    @Aplha - You guys have to bombard his website for requests.
    India is a big market and he can't ignore it if the demand is there.

    Gilmour is known for his charitable work.
    He donated 4 Million pounds to the third world poor
    So it may not just be for money that he would tour India for.

    The best part about being musicians is we can let people choose what they like. I can imagine a situation where someone might actually not like Pink Floyd hence I'd choose to give the musical snobs the benefit of the doubt rather than generalizing.

    But yeah, I totally understand the point you make about snobbery.
