    Tying into the whole reduction of a carbon footprint, wouldn’t it be cool if one of the RAH shows were satellite broadcast live to other locations? For example, New York!!

    It was done for the Gdansk release.

    It would be the next best thing to being there.

    Thanks.
    Andrew

  2. Matteo

    For all the friends who are planning to buy tickets in Florence, please be careful. I’m Italian and there’s no theatre at “Le Muline”. It’s an old Hippodrome…

    • Joannes

      Hello,

      Thank you for your confirmation. I’m French and I bought tickets for Firenze.

      I’m very surprised and disappointed about this area.

      I didn’t want believe it… David could choose another place. Why this one?

      It’s just an hippodrome. I’ve got the same close to my house… I don’t understand… Europe is big, isn’t it??

      Anyway… Thank you. 😉

      Joannes

  3. Pete -Coventry

    Thanks indeed for the early heads up. My friend and I will be there on the Friday.

    Excited – yep, just a little.

  4. alberto

    Yessss! One night in Arena di Verona and another one in Hoberhausen Germany… a dream come true!!!!

  5. simon emery

    Hate so called tickets sellers. Just seen a famous site selling tickets up to £800.

    Please fellow irregulars, don’t be tempted. Hopefully you all took advantage of pre sales, if not the temptation to go to one of these sites will be overpowering. Hold fire and hope for exra dates (you never know).

    If illegal downloads are killing music then surely these criminals are killing the live event.

    • simon emery

      I just hope RAH sticks to its policy of checking ID to beat these criminals. From memory of last OAI tour the same policy was in place, I took my passport but never got checked, just waved in.

  6. Oliver Frankfurt

    Booked this morning from Frankfurt for the Saturday Concert at RAH. Seen David and of course Rick 9 years ago in Frankfurt Alte Oper. Was unforgettable. I still remember these moments very well.

    I am very, very happy. Thanks David for coming out again. Happy Birthday and stay healthy.

  7. Andrew

    But on the DG homepage it does list two additional nights at RAH were added in October.

    Are the irregulars missing that announcement? Are those dates on sale already and sold out as well?

    Thanks.
    Andrew

    • FEd

      Message from the Royal Albert Hall:

      Please note that all performances of David Gilmour are now sold out. Please check back for returns closer to the time.

      Be fair, we had to give other people a chance after the pre-sale.

  8. Neil Pudney

    Oh look another ‘old’ irregular comes out of the woodwork. 🙂

    Thanks to a heads up on Wednesday we were able to secure seats for myself and my son and a wheelchair space for Louise for the RAH! Can’t wait, the memories of last time still very fresh including a mad mad meeting with Guy Pratt that some will recall! Great also to browse through this thread and see so many familiar names – hope you’re all fine and dandy and no doubt see a few of you in September!

    • Neil Pudney

      Oh we will FEd. 🙂 First time for my youngest son seeing David – he’s now nearly 20 and is studying music at BIMM in Brighton, having played a Pink Floyd piece in his audition when he was 17 ……. no idea where the inspiration for that came from. 😉

  9. Mateja Verhovsek

    Oh my god!!!! My 7 year old daughter just saw a jumbo with David Gilmour in our town Celje for concert in Pula. I was driving her to the music scool and she said: “Look mummy, there’s David!” And I was like, yeah, right! I was checking if there’s something new three days ago, and there was nothing. I could not believe it. But now I am crying, the tickets have been sold out. I have been waiting for a tour for years and now I am soooo dissapointed. I was crying all the way home.

    What to do? Will there be any new dates?

  10. Mateja Verhovsek

    I found some online. Few tickets available from 153-297 dollars. Someone makes real profit on fans. Great.

  11. Bert

    As I said, I tried to get into the sales 9 years ago as well, no luck.

    I then got the chance to buy two tickets at eBay for my PF-friend and myself for the closing gig at RAH. We then got the news that all tickets would be checked at the ticket office, by name… So we had to cancel the whole trip. The guy we bought the tickets from was honest enough to refund the money.

    Anyway, no David Gilmour show…

    So now I tried again. For the shows in Orange (Fra), Oberhausen (Ger) and the shows at RAH. Bad luck… Again…

    Now I only needed ONE single ticket, as my PF-friend passed away 3 years ago…

    If there would be any opportunity…

  12. Paul Hurley

    Looking on the Royal Albert Hall calendar there is nothing showing for 5th-7th October keeping fingers crossed for a few further dates being announced, as I am gutted I didn’t get tickets today.

  13. Jersey Mike

    Hi FEd! Long time, no chat. Hope all’s well with you. Glad to hear all this news of albums and tours. I trust we will get pre-sale news should there be a US tour? Cheers!

    Mike

    • FEd

      Oh yes, I’m sure we would do the same in the event of another tour somewhere else, somewhere down the line.

  14. Herbert

    Hi!

    Yeah… just found the ticket confirmation in my mailbox. 🙂

    And a look to the homepage of the Arena Oberhausen:

    Sold out!!! Timestamp March 6th 1:30pm.

    • Taki

      … and thanks to FEd’s generosity my wife and I will be enjoying the event from the first row. The tickets already arrived today and how nice they look…

  15. simon emery

    Florence 15th September will be a good one I think as it’s the anniversary of Richard Wright’s passing. 🙁

  16. Andrew

    FEd,

    Are you surprised we haven’t seen any posts yet begging David to come to Brazil?

    Ah, the old memories of the busy, busy blog are flooding back to me now.

    LOL.

    Have you sharpened that pointy stick again?

    Thanks,
    Andrew

    • FEd

      Oh, it’s still very early. Give it time.

      I will have it sharpened good, don’t you worry.

    • simon emery

      Ooo I remember them requests, lol. I also remember your pointy stick Fed, lol. i’m sure you have upgraded said pointy stick by now. maybe you are using an adapted selfie stick. God, I hate them, lol.

  17. Nige

    Hi FEd,

    I managed to catch 6 shows on the 2006 tour in New York, London and Venice. Due to the panic I got a single stalls tix on 24th until I managed to get some pairs for 25th and 23rd. I’m quite happy to also go on 24th but equally I’d be happy to exchange for cost for anyone that missed out. RAH said it is not possible to pass the tix for the 24th on. Do you think there would be a mechanism for fan ticket exchange arrangements which could bypass the T&C’s on named tix/IDs before the shows?

    • FEd

      You could try asking the Royal Albert Hall to take it back and give you your money back. If enough people do this, a batch of tickets will become available for sale again at some point. I’d try that if I were you.

    • Bert

      Hi Nige,

      or you can spare that ticket for me indeed – would make a DG and PF fan very happy… 🙂 Right, FEd?

      • FEd

        But not if the ticket has his name on it and they turn you away at the door because you can’t provide matching ID.

  18. Nige

    Hi FEd

    I did ask the RAH this today and they were not interested so I guess I’ll be doing 3 shows which is not by any means a problem. Hopefully David will mix it up a bit although the 6 shows in 2006 were pretty much the same apart from the additional guests at RAH, some additional songs after Syd’s untimely passing and the 2nd Venice show.

    • FEd

      That’s a pity, Nige. I’m surprised to hear it, but appreciate you letting me know.

      Enjoy yourself, however many shows you end up going to.

  19. Kimberley

    All the venues are in beautiful places. I was in Verona in May and I will have to admit that North America does not compete in atmosphere nor historical gravitas.

    I hope everyone thoroughly enjoys these shows.

    Toronto cannot compete but still, people here are nice, polite and really enjoy good music.

    Lots of things to see if there is time off in between dates:

    1. Stratford Festival (my home town) world class theatre with swans on the river.
    2. Elmira/St. Jacob’s – farmer’s markets with old order mennonites some of whom still use horse drawn carriages.
    3. Niagara Falls. Natural wonder, can’t be beat.

    The preceding has been a shot at enticing DG to consider expanding the older gentleman tour.

    Cheers!

  20. Andrew

    I was VERY excited to see David going on tour again. I started really digging into Pink Floyd in my junior year of high school. I didnt get On an Island till 2007, but I have always said I would do whatever it takes to see my #1 bucket list concert…

    Well, I didnt have that dream come true today. I really dropped the ball on this one. I woke up at 3:45 am CST to be ready for tickets at 10 am your time, and I missed out on tickets to RAH. 🙁

    With how FEd is wording things, it seems like David could be coming over to our next of the woods? I really hope this is the case, but if it isnt… Will you be telling us on here about extra tickets that came back to RAH? I am from Iowa, was ready to make all the arrangements today/this morning to come over to the UK. Any info would be much appreciated.

    And if he doesnt come to the US, or I dont get a ticket for the Europe tour… we will always have the music.

    • FEd

      Hard luck, Andrew. Here’s hoping you’ll have better luck next time.

      If I’m told that the Royal Albert Hall will be releasing returns and when they intend to do so, although now I’m concerned that they’ve taken some people’s tickets back but not Nige’s, we will let you know as soon as possible.

  21. Dario

    I hope the management of David read this comment!

    In Italy tickets are sold out from this morning, but some sites sell them in large quantities at exorbitant prices! Up to 2000 (two thousand) euros for one ticket. Of course the responsibility is not yours but of those who have managed the presales in Italy.

    • FEd

      I share your frustration, Dario. Believe me, this is being investigated by David’s Management.

      • Ivan

        I am angry, frustrated and furious at the thought that my passion for music and for David to be manipulated by impostors and people who just try to speculate on the passions of others. Online, concert tickets for Italy, were already sold on non-official sites, before the official channels would open the store. It is not possible that nowadays is still create such situations and that nobody can take the situation under control.

        I waited for this moment for a lifetime. And because of touts and impostors will not be able to achieve it! 🙁

    • Giancarlo

      I hope David plans another tour date in Italy because, like said Dario and others, there’s an incredibile reselling of many tickets up to 200 until 4000 (!!) euros, beginned a few minutes after the end of ordinary selling! Another one date, why not with quantitative limits to individual selling, will be a wonderful thing for the genuine Italians and European fans.

      Many thanks.

  22. José Luis

    I would like to tell you about my experience in 2013 in a concert in the RAH. It was Mark Knopfler.

    My son and I travelled from Barcelona. We’ve got only 1 ticket for the concert. We bought it on resale. It was for my son, 16 years old, that has never seen MK in concert. We took a taxi to the RAH, and I left him there. Then I went for a walk in Hyde Park, by the Albert Hall Memorial, when a middle-aged couple, like me, asked me if I would like to attend the concert. They have 3 tickets and his friend couldn’t come. They told me that it was to don’t losing the money, they don’t want to pay profit at all. I offer them 50 pounds, the list price I think it was 56 or something. A fair price, I think.

    So I enter with them to the show. We were in the second tier boxes. Just 5 people. It was fantastic.

  23. pete

    Finally I got tickets for 2 shows – OBERHAUSEN, Germany (2nd row FOS) and LONDON, UK for the Friday show on 25. Sept. – THANKS AGAIN FEd for this infos before the public sales!!!

    Best wishes, Pete from Germany

  24. John Yellowlees

    Over the (dark side of the) moon to have secured a ticket for Thursday 24 September gig! Saw David at the Glasgow Armadillo for the 2006 tour … fantastic. Have to venture from Scotland to RAH for this one … no sweat though, well worth the travel. Thanks so much for the heads up re. the pre-sales – the code worked a dream.

    I really feel for everyone who’s been left out in the cold by the sneaky premium ticket touting firms. I had to get my 2006 tickets through eBay and paid a fortune. So pleased to have secured a face-value ticket this time round and can’t wait to embark on my RAH adventure in September.

    Anyone else migrating from Scotland for the show/s?

    • Shugster

      I’m travelling down from Glasgow with my son for the 1st night gig at RAH (10;55 flight to LCY) and staying o/night hotel near north side of Hyde Park. Anyone else from Glasgow on this flight?

      Btw FEd, thanks so very much for the presale code. I missed out in 2006 so this goes some way to make up for for that – Shine On You Crazy Diamonds!

  25. Howard Bayliss

    Fed,

    I am getting misty eyed over all the irregular flock coming back to roost. I am so very happy that most of you got superlative seats. So many names I haven’t heard in ages each bringing a smile or two over good memories at the Imperial pub in 06.

    Cheers, Howard

    P.S. I can’t believe it Fed, close to 10 years ago. Can you?

  26. Kirk Noah

    Very grateful not only that Mr. Gilmour is still out there making music but that he is still peaking and attaining new plateaus as an artist long after most of his peers stopped making relevant music 30 years ago.

    The question yet remains: How many instruments will he master in this lifetime?

    Listening to The Division Bell 5.1 today, watching my cat sit beside me in Sphinx like position, eyes squinted, ears rotating like radar dishes picking up signals far outside the human range…

    Praying to The Gods for an American Tour somewhere down the road….

  27. Mike

    I take my hat off to David and his management team for the handling of the ticket sales. Considering its a demand that can never be fully satisfied, it would appear that the vast majority of tickets have gone to genuine fans at face value.

    On that note, I wonder why genuine fans buy tickets for more than one night when they are denying another genuine fan of a chance to see David live. Just a thought.

  28. Melissa

    I hate Italy. Thousands of fans haven’t been able to buy the tickets because they’ve been finished in a few minutes. After about 10 minutes from the close of the OFFICIAL presales of Ticketone, lots of tickets were (and ARE!!!!) sold in other websites with prices from 200€ or so, to almost 3000€.

    That’s not correct, I’m disgusted about it.

  29. RogerMexcio

    Hello everyone. Long time fan, new blog member.

    Does anyone have a link that would show me pictures of the theater in Florence? I am trying to decide which show I will see (Verona, Florence, Orange). Sadly, I will have to pay resale as I missed the presale – unless someone on here has an extra ticket. 🙂

    • FEd

      No tickets here, sorry.

      No link to the Florence venue over on the Live Dates page, I notice. I’ve looked but all I see are endless pages of sites reselling tickets. How depressing.

      Sorry I can’t be of any help.

      • RogerMexcio

        Thank you for responding. I went ahead and bought a pair for Verona. Amazing venue and most affordable resale of all shows. If prices go down, or strays become available, I will consider Florence. I will also keep my fingers crossed for US dates. If that happens, I hope there will be a presale since I missed this one. 🙁

  30. Stephen Clement

    Yo FEd,

    Many thanks for the heads up on Europe.

    I saw David at Gdansk and then I flew from Denmark where I was working at the time. This time a buddy and I are heading to Verona from Warwick to see David play! Three days of Italian culture, food and drink with Gilmour sandwiched in the middle should be exceptional. I believe that we’ll be able to see the Verona Arena from the hotel’s rooftop jacuzzi so I’m hoping for some soundcheck action too. That’s not enough for me, monster telephone perseverance has also found four of us in a box at the Albert Hall on 3rd October.

    Keep up the brilliant blogging!

  31. Roberto

    Come al solito in Italia funziona tutto in maniera mafiosa, anche questa volta non potro assistere al Tuo concerto i biglietti sono stati venduti a dei bagarini e li rivendono a prezzi enormi.

    Buon tour David. :))

  32. Gary

    Hi

    I’m a little confused, as when I tried to book tickets in ANY of the locations that Eventim are listed as “not available” however it’s not sold out. I was trying to get tickets to Oberhausen (nearest to Sweden you see) and during the time that I could see the seating charts, the seating wasn’t even quarter sold out…..any idea on what’s happening there? Eventim have been refusing to give any further information on the tickets, nice folks they are.

  33. Vilim

    please, i looking for 2 tickets for david gilmour tour. can somebody help me please?

  34. Vilim

    why, why, I ask myself why is this possible?! real fans of music, real fans of gilmour, remain without tickets, when we follow you from first albums, and then I see this bastards selling tickets on this prices. this is not fair! I was waiting to see mr.gilmour playing and now I’m crying, sorry but I am so angry… i wish you wonderful and amazing shows and hope to see you if there are going to be some more dates.

    by “this bastards” I mean people selling tickets on internet 10 or 20 times more than the first price that you made, that is not ok!

    rock n’ roll to everybody.

  35. Stefan

    Stefan from Romania here. A long-time Floyd and Gilmour fan, I’m so glad that I managed to buy presale tickets for Firenze 2 hours after I saw the announcement here. Thank you!

    Looking forward for the show – this is my biggest dream come true. I was also lucky enough to see Mr. Waters’s “The Wall” in Bucharest a while ago. There were rumours about a possible date in Romania – do you have any info about such a possibility? The Bontida Castle in Cluj-Napoca was mentioned…

    • FEd

      That’s a good rumour, but that’s all it is. I’ve not heard that one before.

      Enjoy yourself in Florence.

      • Stefan

        Oh, one other thing: I was also lucky enough to be able to share my passion for Floyd with the fans here by conducting an interview last November with Mr. Andy Jackson himself. My hopes are up for a possible similar action as far as David is concerned, but so far I did not succeed in finding the right channel to place my request. Any clues? 🙂

    • RogerMexico

      Hello, Stefan. Do you have any information on the venue in Florence (street address, etc.)? I cannot find a link for it on the internet.

  36. vinicius domingues

    Dear all

    I am Brazilian but currently living in NYC.

    I failed to see Gilmour’s tour in 2006 and never being able to forgive myself.

    Now, I failed once again on buying the European tour. Tried the day after. It was sold out already.

    I am really hoping he will come to the USA or anywhere else that I could have the opportunity to see him play.

    Any news about further dates?

  37. WOW - Deni

    I really feel awful for the folks who were unable to score seats for the 2015 European Tour, really do. I have never seen David live and because of this incredibly wonderful website, was able to get some tickets and am in a solid state of jubilation. Just keep getting these whirl wind of emotional outbreaks of pure excitement rummaging throughout my body and I can’t escape it. I just want to run to the highest mountain top and scream at the top of my lungs…”I’m going to see Mr. David Gilmour LIVE at some of the most beautiful venues in the world.”

    People, can you hear me??? There’s only one thing that’s going to help and that’s six months away. I’m outta control and I can’t breathe!

  38. ash

    When I told my daughter I’d got tickets to see David, she said “thanks”. She didn’t say her usual, “that’s nice, who are you going with?” :))

    ash

  39. Darcy Domingues

    Hi There,

    I wish that every one has a fantastic time seeing Gilmour on stage.

    Unfortunately I missed last tour and I am having a very hard time dealing that I may have missed this 2015 tour right now as well.

    I ask, from the bottom of my heart, that if there is any further dates if someone can contact me please… I am a Doctor and when I checked March 8 everything was sold out already. I used to check his website every 3 or 5 days! I can not forgive myself.

    FEd, is there any light for me? Anything coming? US tour? More Europe?

    • D.

      I feel you…. I really hate myself for not checking this site earlier…. maybe they’ll make a DVD out of it… it will take a lot of time before I can look at it because than you’ll see what an awesome show you’ve missed.

      Let’s hope there will be a tour next year!!!!

      • tim_c

        Don’t worry D, I missed out on the 2006 tour and I’ve just about got over it now ….. but I was glad to watch the DVD all the same.

        Give “Remember that Night” a play … it’s worth it every time.

  40. D.

    Do you think he will expand his tour? I’m from Holland and was too late to buy any tickets…. 🙁 I’m so mad at myself for not checking your site much earlier… can I sign up for a newsletter or something so I can be up to date and wont miss a thing?

    I hope you write me FEd! 🙂

  41. Richard Welk

    Dear David and management. I am sorry this is a double post but before I am afraid I replied to a birthday wish and I also had more to add. So I appreciate my voice being able to be heard.

    I know this comment will be disagreed with by many readers but I think many will agree as well.

    I am begging you to remove your restrictions for ticket sales on the secondary market. While I applaud your attempt to make a impact with this global issue, I disagree with it in this particular case for the following reasons:

    The first reason being that your tickets went on sale just a few days after announcing your tour. Thousands if not millions of fans had no idea you were going on tour never mind that tickets were going on sale. While I am thankful and excited you are touring again, I find announcing tour dates only days before a ticket sale not very fan friendly.

    Many of those tickets were sold to buyers on the secondary ticket market anyways and many people are selling tickets despite your restrictions. You are actually doing more damage then good because of your restrictions, it is raising the demand and cost of tickets on the market.

    If you want to make an impact with the secondary ticket touts this is a campaign you work on for years. You are risking empty seats and not allowing the real fans into the building while not making any real impact on a huge global issue. The only impact you are having right now is driving prices up and scaring the fans that are buying them into thinking they will not be able to enter.

    I did not know about the tour until 24 hours after tickets were sold out and I personally know of many more like me. I listen to the main classic rock station in Boston from 5 am in the morning until 8pm at night during work and commute. Not one single word was spoken about the tour and I have still not heard a peep about. The shame about American media is, if it is not happening here they do not talk about it. I am a 65 year old carpenter and the internet is not a daily event for me. I only log on for the basics and to follow my interests such as David.

    There is one positive that the secondary ticket market brings for fans. We have plenty of time to save up and buy tickets at our leisure. I would like to attend 2 or 3 Royal Albert Hall shows but being a blue collar guy this would take me months to be able to afford especially because of travel costs from the States. I am horrified to work my butt off to afford something like this only to be turned away at the door when I arrive. I have not missed a single tour David has been a part of since 1973 and I do not want to miss this one because of a stand against a business structure.

    Please remove the restrictions so we can buy our tickets without fear of not being allowed into the building.

    Please announce more tour dates with a longer duration between the announcement and the ticket sale date and leave the restrictions and this fight to musicians who tour often.

    Doing this will put more real fans into the seats, otherwise the fans who did get tickets will be sitting next to the touts who do not care about you like we do.

    This fight against the ticket touts is better served for the younger bands touring consistently out there. Restrictions for a legend like David that could prohibit fans that have been following him some for 50 years is not a good stand. If you would like to make a real impact with this issue how about starting up a group of artists to speak out about it and play a commission type role? The younger artists out there would follow leaders like David and Pete Townshend, and Paul McCartney.

    That is all I wanted to say. I beg you to consider removing the restrictions so ticket prices drop and your real fans do not have to fear wasting money to be turned away at the door. I also beg you to consider coming back to the USA. We do not have any Roman theatres but the venues you played at in 2006 was a amazing experience. Even if you only played one date on each coast like Radio City NY and Los Angeles, it would be good enough for many of us. Just give us a little taste please. I must see you one last time to complete this long beautiful romance with your music.

    Thanks for considering.

      Thank you for this post. It has angered me to see people with tickets telling those of us without tickets that we should take a stand against touts and not buy resale. So I said heck with that and bought resale for Verona and Florence. Yes, I am disgusted at the mark-up. But life is short and I want to see him play. As you said, not all of us are glued to our computer. So this is the only way some of us are able to see him.

      Best of luck making it a show!

    … it would be nice that David would add a date in Italy on 13 or 16 September as the tickets are gone. 🙁

  43. Bob Hulford

    I wonder if anyone is travelling to the Pula show from London scheduled for Saturday 12th Sep, and if so what flight(s) they have managed to find to fit with the concert schedule. I can only find one return flight on the Saturday on Thomson Airways which arrives too late and is also £916.00 return from LGW.

    Any replies welcome.

    Cheers.

      I’m coming over from Canada via London then Brussels then Pula. Ryanair has a cheap direct flight from Brussels to Pula on the Friday, so if you take the Eurostar or a plane to Brussels you should be able to do it all at a fairly reasonable rate.

    Hey,

    I have bought tickets for one of David’s concerts in London, and I need to show my credit card to pick up the tickets. My problem is, that I have lost my card a few days ago, so I won’t be able to show it in September. Do you know what I can do?

    Thanks a lot!
    Simon

    • FEd

      First, don’t worry.

      I’d take the new card, along with a recent statement that shows the card number of the card that’s missing. I’m sure that will be acceptable. If you’re still worried, you could always e-mail the Royal Albert Hall (or tweet) and I’m sure they’ll set your mind at ease.

    Will there be more dates and venues?? I won’t die in peace otherwise!!

    Hey there FEd

    We are from South Africa and we booked tickets for the show David Gilmour is having on the 12th of September in Croatia.

    On requesting information to verify if our order was received and sending through all the information we did receive on payment of the tickets, we are not receiving much help from EVENTIM…

    The money definitely went off from our account as follows:

    […]

    Is there any way that you can assist us in finding out what’s going on? We bought the ticket through davidgilmour.com, but according to EVENTIM they didn’t receive the booking even though we received the order number…..

    We’ll be shattered if something went wrong and we can’t attend, as we did all we should from our side… Trying all avenues to find out what’s going on – and you seem like a miracle worker according to all these comments….

    Thanks.

    • FEd

      Hi Leone,

      I’ve tried e-mailing you but there seems to be a problem with your e-mail address.

      Please can you check that, maybe provide another address, and above all, please let me know the name and e-mail address used to order these tickets, as well as the name exactly as it appears on the card you used to pay? Thanks.

    Hi Fed,

    So further to my last post about David being at a Steven Wilson gig in London recently, it has just been announced that Steven is now playing 2 dates at the Royal Albert Hall on the 28 and 29 September……….right in the middle of David’s 5 nights at the venue.

    Now I may be adding 2+2 to equal 7 but I can’t help thinking that maybe Steven is involved in David’s new album in some way. Lot of coincidences going on here.

  48. Massimo

    Hi to all,

    I’m here to let you know the sad ticket situation in Italy.

    In the Gilmour official site is written that all dates are sold-out. It’s not true. In Italy some bad business people bought several tickets at the right price and now are reselling it at crazy prices.

    It’s a shame. I hope that the organizers cancel the concerts in Italy.

    Here is a petition against this shameful behavior.

    For 20 years that I follow Gilmour, I learned to play guitar thanks to him, in my head every single note, at 11:01 am truly sorry that was not able to buy a ticket to see him one last time but most are very angry about the Italian mafia behavior on tickets.

    I hope something happens to justice.

  49. Teresa

    David, please come to Wine Country in Sonoma County and perform at the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts here, about 65 miles north of San Francisco.

    Best to you.

    Teresa

    Hi Fed

    Quick question: do you think I could make Kings Cross from Albert Hall to catch 11.30 train? Is it doable as I’m not familiar with London.

    Cheers.

  51. Carole-Anne

    Montreal, Quebec, Canada would sell out in few minutes. Please come to Montreal or anywhere else we can fly, anywhere I can put my hands on tickets would do for me.

    • Louis

      Yep… Quebec would sell out in a few minutes. My son and I are big fans of David’s guitar playing. I hate myself for having missed the sale in Europe as we would have gladly travelled to see him.

      So please David, a few more jigs in a venue with good acoustic as your music deserves it. We’ll be there!

  52. Rich

    This post could be titled ‘How to get really stressed’ or ‘Now it all makes sense’ or ‘Isn’t life wonderful?’. Or all three!

    So I’ve been reading the blog (occasionally writing) since 2006, and at least weekly in 2015 in case something big happens….

    Then first week of March I’m out of the UK. With poor internet and phone not getting e-mails. Fly back on Friday 6th March.

    Get back Saturday.

    Read the Sunday paper. I’ve missed all the action and it’s a sell out! Unbelievable!!

    Check the Internet. Sold Out.

    Unbelievable!!!!

    Sleepless night. Phone the Royal Albert Hall on Monday 9th to see when the debenture returns are on sale. “Whenever they are returned Sir, but anyway we do have one stalls ticket left for 23 Sept. Do you want it?”

    “Yes Please!”

    Unbelievable!!!!!!

    Reboot phone as I’m still not getting e-mail. Ding-dong. There’s a kind message from FEd about tickets and I didn’t get it.

    Unbelievable!!!!!!!!

    Wonderful things can happen. Or at least truly bizarre!

    Gave more to Comic Relief this year as I feel I owe someone…

    Note: if you were not lucky, keep trying the RAH as they believe that they will get returns early August-ish.

    • lorraine

      Don’t you just love it when the infinitely improbable happens?

      Made my day reading your post. 😀

    • Pavlov

      Now that’s preordained, fate, destiny — call it what you will. Heartwarming!

      • Sharon Woods

        Thanks, for this, Rich! If I’d not gone home in a totally stunned state of emotional crisis, THAT day, after following Albertine’s misfortunes (the poor girl died), in Recherché du Temps Perdue, I would have missed out on the exaordinary stroke of fortune that came our way in acquiring tickets to the concert in Orange, France!

        The gods work in mysterious, wondrous ways, non?

        Allon-sy!

    The United States made the members of Floyd their fame and fortune they now enjoy, including David whom I have listened to since I was 16 in 1970 and have loved since. However, please don’t forget us, we need tour info.

    Please come to our fair country.

    • Andrew Learmonth

      That’s horse shit! Every fan around the world made them what they are, not just the United States!

      If it was that important, you’d have seen David well before now.

  54. Andrew123

    FEd, a friend of mine said he got a newsletter thing for a lottery for select US dates. Any truth to this?

  55. Cesar

    Hello FEd,

    Seetickets.com is selling now tickets for a David Gilmour concert at Bilbao Exhibition center on June 24th. Is there any truth is this or are they just scalpers?

    Thanks a lot!

    César

  56. Pamela

    Please David, come to Mexico!! But not in a festival, come just you and your great musicians!

  57. Mirlo

    Please come to Switzerland (Zurich or Bern), we are in the middle of everything!!

    And please, put on sale the tickets with much more anticipation.

    We have waiting for you a long time. 10 dates is not fair.

    I love you, but I’m disappointed.

  58. MV

    Hey guyz…

    does anyone know when the ticket sales will be back up again – specifically for Germany and France?

    • FEd

      All dates are now sold out, I’m sorry to say, but I don’t yet know what’s happening about returned tickets.

      • Andrew Learmonth

        Can you elaborate on what you mean by returned tickets please?

        I’ve never not been able to get tickets for a Floyd/Dave gig since 1987.

        There was no chance this time! As soon as I tried they were sold out completely. Then the tickets start appearing instantly on other sites at £1000 a ticket!

        The whole ticket fiasco this time is a disgrace.

        • FEd

          I am very sorry, Andrew. Your comments have been noted. If it’s any consolation, I don’t have tickets, either. But anyway…

          By “returned tickets”, I mean those tickets that the venue (well, the Royal Albert Hall; I don’t know about the others as they all have their own policies and generally don’t want to accept returns or be issuing refunds, and I’m not even sure that they have their own Box Office and staff, but that’s the way of the world these days, sadly) has been good enough to take back from anyone who bought them in haste and later, for whatever reason, realised they did not need. The buyer gets a refund, his or her tickets go back on sale, and somebody else has a chance to attend the show without paying touts silly money.

          However, in the case of Oberhausen (and I hope all the others in due course, but don’t know this for sure yet, so please don’t bank on any more tickets becoming available), a few tickets were held back from general sale and could only be made available once details concerning the stage, lighting and all the rest of it was finalised. Now that’s been done, these extra tickets for Oberhausen could go on sale.

    I live on Venus. The atmosphere’s terrible (based on Hydrochloric Acid), the temperature is 30,000 C, but the acoustics are great. Any chance of some dates? We Venutians love a bit of Floyd and we are far nicer than those Stuck-Up Snobs on Jupiter and Saturn.

    • Michèle

      Oh, I’m sure there are stunning – although obscured by clouds – Roman amphitheatres on Venus…

      After all, wasn’t Venus named after the Roman Goddess of Love and Beauty? 😉

  60. Edward

    Did not manage to get a ticket for London concerts……prices are exorbitant!! Please come to Malta….lot of fans on the Island.

  61. Rob Hulford

    Hi,

    I have a spare Ryanair Ticket if anyone is interested in purchasing it.

    Routing. Brussels to Pula – Friday 11th September. Flight Dep time 07.25. Arrives 09.35 in Pula. It will get you to Pula the day before the first concert on the evening of Saturday 12th September.

    Please post here (with FEd’s permission if you are interested).

  62. Carlos Pita

    I’m coming from Brazil to get two concerts of the tour. Orange and London… Thanks to my Pink Floyd addiction I could get the pre-sale on an ocasional visit, by surprise when I accessed the site there were the links to the concerts!

    I’m so excited and anxious about the songs that will be played, I hope to see some good and old Pink Floyd stuff…

    Thanks god I won’t die without seeing Mr David Gilmour.

  63. Jon E

    Hey Fed!

    I have 2 spare tickets for the Oberhausen show (19th September) and they are very cool: 11th row dead center. I will be attending the show too, but a couple of friends can’t make it.

    Do you think we could help someone buy these for a fair price (face value + fees and shipping)?
    Or is auctioning them for charity a possibility?

    Well, I am sure one way or another they will find a righteous owner soon. 🙂

    I remember that back in 2006 some tickets resold by scalpers on eBay were cancelled, and thanks to that I was able to attend one of the RAH shows (which in turn led to attending a second night!). I am grateful for that, yet again!

    Jon

    Hello,

    What a day. Announcement of 4 extra dates in RAH! Me psyched and ordered 4 tickets. But forgot that it could be possible that my wife could give birth to our child in September 2016 since we are trying to make a baby. So enough of private information. So I bought 4 tickets in my full excitement and set them to my name. But what if? With the ID control in RAH. If I cant go all my friends can’t go neither suddenly?

    So my question is to Gilmour fans who already attended a gig of him in RAH, if the ID control is really checking with picture on the ID or do they just look at the name and the name at the tickets. So if I would give my ID to my friends they still could go. We come from oversea so it’s important to know. Bit stupid of me of course but hey. 🙂

    I went to Orange and it was awesome!

    • FEd

      They check. You’ll need to notify the Albert Hall if you cannot attend. They are very helpful, though.
