A week from now, David will perform for the very first time in Poland for some 100,000 people at the request of Poland’s former President, Lech Walesa, and the Major of Gdańsk, Pawel Adamowicz.
It will mark the 26th anniversary of the founding of Solidarity, the trade union which inspired millions to challenge communism in Eastern Europe.
A movement started by Gdańsk shipyard workers and led by Lech Walesa, Solidarity peacefully fought against oppression and injustice. Martial law was declared in Poland, Solidarity was made illegal and most of its leaders were imprisoned.
Still, they persevered and, in 1989, formed a coalition government which ended the Soviet hold that had existed in Poland since 1947.
They proved that you can bring about regime change by way of negotiation, without the use of force.
They inspired others to follow their lead.
This time next week, with a 40-piece orchestra conducted by famed Polish composer, Zbigniew Preisner, David and his band will honour Solidarity with what promises to be an extraordinary concert.
We hope that it will mean as much to you as it does to everybody involved.
