As you seemed so pleased to see David photographed with Richard Wright, here’s another shot of the two of them.
It has generated much discussion amongst fans since the tour was announced, so we’re glad to now be able to put all the rumours to bed by confirming David’s touring party for his forthcoming shows in Europe and North America.
Judging by your frenzied comments, we trust that most of you have already seen the story over on the News page. However, if you missed it, Pink Floyd’s Richard Wright will be the band’s keyboardist and organist. Phil Manzanera, who has also co-produced ‘On An Island’, will be playing guitar. Stevie Di Stanislao has been given the drumming duties, as was widely rumoured. Guy Pratt and Jon Carin, who have thrice toured the world with Pink Floyd, will play bass and keyboards respectively.
There will be no support act and the tour (as you will know, because many of you are already counting down the days) begins in Dortmund on 10 March.
We have very much enjoyed your reaction to hearing who will be in David’s band, but please feel free to comment further here if you so wish.
From now on, there will be a new blog entry every other day. This is to give you more time to comment on the day’s topic. Bearing in mind the different time zones around the world, we think this makes sense.
So, as this is all you’re getting until Monday, make the most of it.
Thanks again for your involvement. It’s always welcome.
