Please click here for details of all Swedish venues, and also to order tickets.
You can now order tickets for Denmark’s Palads København here. If you encounter any difficulties with this link, please visit www.biobooking.dk and you’ll see ‘David Gilmour’ listed on the right (under Forsalg). Click David’s name, then the red arrow, then the start time (in green). The rest will become obvious.
We’ve unfortunately reached the end of Phil Manzanera’s fan Q&A, which I hope you’ve enjoyed.
There were some great questions and, judging by the comments that followed each instalment, the answers didn’t disappoint.
I’d just like to take this opportunity to thank Phil for being so very gracious with his time and for answering a wide variety of questions with such honesty and wit: Phil, many thanks.
Thanks again to everyone who sent in a question for consideration.
If you’re in Europe, or will be attending one of the European cinemas where ‘Remember That Night’ is being shown on Thursday 6 September, and haven’t sent in a question for David yet, please don’t leave it much later. The deadline is tomorrow at 5PM (UK).
Please click here to leave your question – but please take note of the rules before you do so.
I really do need to know your real name and whereabouts. If you do not include this information, I do not consider your question.
Neither will I consider questions about Pink Floyd reforming, tribute bands or David listening to your demos. And please, please, please spare us all from the “When are you coming to…?” nonsense. You’re wasting your chance with any of these.
The song being performed in yesterday’s Name That Tune screenshot was ‘Shine On You Crazy Diamond’. If you guessed correctly, well done. If you didn’t, we still love you.
Last, but not least, the chatroom has just opened and will be open until 12PM (UK). Feel free to call in.
How have your Latin roots influenced your music? (Renee B)
Very much so from a rhythmic point of view, the groove. And my love of the cumbia makes me very partial to a 6/8 rhythm, which I invariably play against a 4/4 rhythm.
Is there a guitarist from your homeland that you especially like the work of? (Jan)
The guitarist I most admire is Jimi Hendrix.
What’s your favourite song to play live? (Chris Hampton)
If you listened to ‘Ladytron’ vocals by Thom Yorke, can you tell me if you liked his way to sing your song? (Lucia)
Yes, anything by Thom Yorke is fine by me.
Given the success of the bands from the 60s & 70s, like Roxy Music, Pink Floyd or Led Zeppelin; how do think they would fare if they were just starting out today? (Tom B)
A unique band is always a unique band, e.g. Radiohead, Arcade Fire, White Stripes, Arctic Monkeys… There’s a connection between today’s bands and the great bands of the ’60s and ’70s. It’s about the chemistry between the individual and the quality of the ideas.
Which one album or song could you not live without? (Luis G)
‘Rubber Soul’ and ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’.
Do you feel that knowing how to read music is the best way to get started? (Jan)
No, I feel the notes get in the way for Rock and Roll. You need to train your ear.
What is the most valuable piece of information you have learned working in the music industry? (Cemet Nosce)
Remember to keep the music at the centre of everything.
