David and his band play the first of three concerts at London’s Royal Albert Hall tonight. Although these have been ‘sold out’ since day one, the RAH has released more seats in the choir area, right behind the musicians, for all three nights. See davidgilmour.com for more details.
If you’re going to this evening’s show, do let us know how you’re feeling at the moment.
When you get back and feeling has returned to you your fingertips, do let us know how the night went.
You know what we’re like here at davidgilmour.com – we want to know every little detail, so don’t be shy.
As always, the setlist will be mentioned among the fan comments below. If you don’t want to know which songs were performed, don’t read the fan comments.
As you know, tonight’s concert is being filmed for inclusion on David’s new DVD. Please refrain from using cameras and mobile phones! They will be especially irritating tonight.
You’ll see posters around the Hall requesting the same thing. Please pay close attention to them.
RAH staff will be particularly strict over the next three nights and anyone found to be breaching these rules will have their offending camera/phone confiscated immediately.
No matter how many pictures or videos you record, they won’t match the quality of the DVD that will be out later this year, so please don’t use any cameras during the performance.
This request comes not only from us, the people who will be filming, the RAH staff and the fans who have already commented on how annoying people with cameras are. It also comes from the band members who have been irritated by flashing lights throughout the tour. They are trying to perform for us, after all.
So no cameras tonight, thank you.
Enjoy the concert, everyone. If you want to meet with other fans before the show, then the Queen’s Arms at 30 Queens Gate Mews seems to be the place for it.
