For US fans


Lots of good news for all you fans in the States, as we know that many of you are rather unhappy that the BBC competition is open to UK residents only.

First, as has been noted by you among yesterday’s frenzied comments (a fine source of information you lot are), US fans have their very own chance to win tickets to one of David’s shows, as well as many other exciting prizes. You don’t even have to answer a question.

The good people at Columbia Records are offering you the grand prize of a round trip for two to Los Angeles, complete with tickets to the show at the Gibson Amphitheatre on 20 April. You will stay at the legendary Chateau Marmont hotel and transportation to, and from, the concert is included. If that’s not enough, there’s also a signed guitar, a brand new ‘On An Island’ CD, as well as David’s other two solo albums and DVD.

25 second place winners will each receive a signed David Gilmour lithograph and 10 third place winners will each receive a David Gilmour baseball hat and a copy of David’s fabulous new album on CD.

This competition is open to US residents only. The very best of luck to all who enter.

The ‘On An Island’ single is now available on iTunes. Not in Europe though. Europeans will have to wait until 6 March, unfortunately.

Also, look out for the latest edition of Billboard, which has a rather interesting Q&A with David. As we’re so good to you, you can read it right now over on the Press page.

Many thanks to Guy Pratt for kindly giving us an update on how the rehearsals are coming along. Proving that no one bothers to read anyone else’s posts, at the time of writing, no one appears to have noticed Guy’s message. Oh well, some of us appreciate you dropping in, Guy!

One thing we are sure you’ve noticed, however, is the ‘On An Island’ video. Do let us know what you think of it.

There. Happier now?
