Guy Pratt taking a break

We hope you liked David’s early Christmas present to his fans, and that it got you positively salivating at the prospect of some new material.

We also hope that, in exchange, you could find it in your heart to make a contribution to Crisis, the homelessness charity for which David is vice president.

As you perhaps already know, David has been a big supporter of the valuable work carried out by Crisis for some time, most notably by supporting their Urban Village project to build affordable housing for key workers, such as nurses and teachers.

So, at this festive time of year, why not make a kind gesture, no matter how small, towards people for whom Christmas is not about family, warmth, laughter or chestnuts roasting by the fireside? If you do, please say that you came from davidgilmour.com.

There have been some terrific comments coming in, so many thanks to everyone who has posted. Please be aware that your messages are checked before being added to the site, so don’t be alarmed if they don’t appear instantly, as this is perfectly normal.

Also, queries about ticket sales will not be posted. The Live Dates page gives clear instructions on how to order tickets. We can‘t help you any more than that, unfortunately.

It’s been very interesting reading what you are hoping for from both album and tour. More will be revealed in time, so have patience and all will be made known.

Today’s exclusive photograph, of bassist Guy Pratt, was taken by Polly recently at a recording session at the legendary Abbey Road studios.

Guy Pratt has been working with David since Pink Floyd’s 1987 album, ‘A Momentary Lapse of Reason’ and has toured the world with Pink Floyd twice. A Grammy award-winning bassist, he has also toured with the likes of Michael Jackson, Gary Moore, Roxy Music and Madonna, as well as working on albums by Tom Jones, Iggy Pop and Elton John. He has written and produced material for a variety of artists, as well as writing and producing TV and theatre scores.

Until then, have a great Christmas Eve… and go easy on the chocolates.
